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.

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

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.

International / Final X
« on: May 30, 2018, 05:45:14 PM »
So what do you guys think of this?   3 weekends rather than just one.  And in different areas.  This sounds to me like a really good reason to buy Flow or Track.

Off-Topic / Kilauea - The Big Island Volcano
« on: May 08, 2018, 11:26:38 AM »
This disaster on the Big Island is just horrible, but fairly predictable.  When we lived there in the early part of the 21st century, there was a road that went from the Volcano National Park to near the neighborhood now under assault.  While we were there, it was covered by 6-8 feet of lava.  To get out to watch the lava flow into the ocean, you had cross over this looking at old road signs that are now at knee level. 

The Hawaiian chain of islands was made by the hot spot that is under the Big Island right now.  The Plate keeps moving towards the northwest so the Puna area is right in that direction.  Now the movement is rather slow, but like I said, it was predictable to happen at some point.  So in fact the Big Island is the newest of the Hawaiian islands. 

I had a friend that owned an acre in that area and I asked him why and he said stuff I don't remember.  I reminded him that it was adjacent to an active volcano spewing lava continually for the last 20 years.  I think he got out of that property but just wow!  The devastation is incredible and the rifts that have opened with lava boiling up and shooting up eruption like is something new.  I feel real bad for the folks that live there because 1)  I think they will be permanently  relocating, and 2) their property values are done, and 3) hopefully they had insurance for this kind of thing for the 26 homes that have burned up.  The lava even ate a Ford Mustang I saw yesterday. 

Pele probably got tired of the human encroachment and sent a signal that enough is enough.   She's upset and now we all know it.  Very fortunately, she was not so vindictive that she took human life.  Everyone is safe for which we can all be grateful.  Hopefully she calms down and rests for a long while!!

College / Biggest comeback after losing in first round
« on: March 19, 2018, 03:56:44 PM »
#10 Emory Parker of Illinois lost his first match and did not lose another.  Took 3rd.  That is a long road to go.  Congrats to him.   

Not only that, but he beat the guy that beat him, Ness, later in the consis.  That's some intestinal fortitude.

College / Surprises in the Semi's
« on: March 16, 2018, 05:58:46 PM »
Wow, two unseeded in the semi's.

Kyle Conel of Kent St took out tOSU's #1 Moore at 197 by pin at 1:30.   
Conel previously beat #9 Weigel 5-0, and then #8 Rotert 8-2.

Tariq Wilson of NC State took out OKST's #4 Brock at 133,  13-5.
Wilson previsously beat #5 Erneste 8-5, and then unseeded Montoya 7-1.

Commanding victories.   Just wow.

It would be great to see them win tonight.

College / 2018 1st session results
« on: March 15, 2018, 03:59:40 PM »
Seeding folks generally did well.  Here are the holes:

(Projected AA's are highlighted)

125   #16 Schwarm
133   #5  Erneste,  #12 Terao,  #15 Nasar
141   #16 Weaver,  #9 Alber,  #8 Lee, #15 Limmex
149   #13 McChrystal,  (with #10 Tsirstis almost losing, won in 3rd OT)
157   #16 D'Angelo, #11 Ream, #2 Lavallee
165   #8 Rogers, 
174   
184   #12 Carr, #10 Parker,
197   #16 Brunner, #9 Weigel, #12 Louseiousersu (don't speak or write French!), #11 Griego, #10 Boykin
285   #16 Stencel, #13 Miller

They nailed 174, did well in most others.   197 was particularly difficult.  Only a four top 8 seeds lost in the first round, with #2 Lavalleee being the most prominent.   Always difficult to say how stuff like that happens, but it does and that's why they have the big dance!!!
