#3  DeSanto  11-1
#4  Lizak        16-4
#5  Bravo-Young  14-1

Fix beat Lizak 6-1.  Beat Suriano 3-2

I tell ya, he gets no respect.  I'm guessing he'll get respect at the Big Dance.

International / JB off to Siberia
« on: January 15, 2019, 03:45:53 PM »
I have it on pretty good authority that JB is going to Yarigan at 79kg.   Snyder will go too, but Sadulaev is a chicken and not going.  Ha!!

Off-Topic / Microwave internal combustion engines
« on: December 13, 2018, 11:49:03 AM »
Has anyone heard of this concept before?  I think this sounds pretty cool.   

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/ex-porsche-ceo-tries-save-085151093.html

As tightening emission rules force the car industry to embrace battery power, a German startup says it has the technology to give the combustion engine a reprieve.

Using pulsed microwaves to ignite fuel rather than spark plugs or glow plugs, the engineers behind MWI Micro Wave Ignition AG say they can cut consumption of gasoline and diesel by as much as 30 percent, and emissions by as much as 80 percent, because the fuel burns at a lower temperature.


Cut emissions by 80%?!!  That there is a global warming alarmist nightmare.   If true, the IC engine will be around for a bit longer.  I think it is fascinating the things people come up with.  I looked it up on the mighty google and what I got were a lot of research papers on the topic.  The microwave apparently creates a plasma that burns the air fuel mixture quite evenly and completely.  The trouble is going to be consistency I think. 

Very cool tech.

International / Nice Takedown
« on: December 05, 2018, 06:40:44 PM »
Now I admit this video is not wrestling per se, but it is wrestling.  Hyena vs a deer of some kind.  Watch from 3:00 to 3:22, nice technique on the takedown.

College / buck!!!!! What happened
« on: December 03, 2018, 12:13:59 PM »
No. 1 Penn State blanks No. 10 Lehigh, 42-0, at home

#10 should not be blanked.  They should have gotten a participation point just for showing up or something!!  Strike that - they didn't even get one takedown.   Wow, PSU must be in another universe.

Mixed Martial Arts / Askren in UFC now
« on: November 21, 2018, 06:52:14 PM »
Well, Ben asked, and he received.  He is now in the UFC and from all accounts, he couldn't be happier about it.  He is off challenging everyone.  This will be interesting no doubt. 

Looks like he faces Lawler on Jan 26 at UFC 233.

Other Sports / Arm Wrestling
« on: November 20, 2018, 05:54:01 PM »
I occasionally watch arm wrestling and it is pretty interesting.  The current champ, Devon Larratt, went to Poland to fight Denis Cyplenkov.  This guy looks totally juice up to me.  I'd like to know what other posters on here know about this.  Here is a before and after.  He was pretty big before, but now, Wow!!

Off-Topic / RIP - Roy Clark
« on: November 16, 2018, 02:50:04 PM »
You can go to youtube and see him blaze on the fret board.  The guy was a musical genius.  I love his playing, both guitar and banjo.  A one of a kind performer who stretched the boundaries of country music.  RIP

International / So what does Snyder now do?
« on: November 10, 2018, 12:23:16 PM »
I'm not sure he believed what happened when it did.  Is he now hungrier than ever?  Has he devised a plan to neutralize the human wrecking machine?  Is he motivated to continue the hard work it takes to be at that level?  I think he needs to rethink his huggy bear approach to fighting the single.  Anyone that does that anymore is bound for a quick arm lock and roll over.  Brilliant move by Sad on that one.  Definitely had worked on that one.

His cancer came back.  He did a lot of good things here in the Seattle area.  He will be missed.

Off-Topic / Snopes - Interesting article
« on: October 10, 2018, 03:04:43 PM »
https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/lies-lies-and-more-lies-out-of-an-old-tacoma-house-fact-checking-site-snopes-uncovers-them/

Snopes is run out of a house in Portland Oregon.  By one guy.  He has 16 others that help him that live around the country.  Quite interesting.

International / 2018 Jr WC's
« on: September 24, 2018, 02:32:04 PM »
Well, our shoe in's did not win gold, Fix and Steveson.  That's why they have the big dance.   Fix came back for Bronze.  Gable lost in quarters, got stuck at 1:42.  He had previously beaten this guy a few times.  I wonder what happened.

International / Yaser Dogu
« on: July 27, 2018, 07:42:18 PM »
Doing pretty well.   Burroughs, Taylor, and Gilman in the finals.   Snyder lost 3-3 in the semis.  Steiber lost first match and is out.

Not too bad.   3 guaranteed silvers and one bronze maybe and the other half of our team is on tomorow. 

Taylor pinned his way to the finals.  He is looking really good.  He faces Sulaymanov of AZE.  He's dirty and very beatable.
