Off-Topic / Coaching meltdowns
« on: December 05, 2014, 07:46:03 AM »
Any of you guys seen any high profile coaches meltdown during wrestling matches? Of course you have, it's what a good wrestling coach does when he disagrees with the referee.

At an Okie State/Iowa dual in the late 70's I saw Dan Gable throw a chair that almost made it to the door of Gallagher Hall! Gable was pretty famous for his passion! I don't recall any other fireworks from the dual, but Iowa may have been docked a point (can't remember, that was well over 30 years ago).

Which guys come to mind for totally losing their shit during a match? I figure we got to put Terry Brands on the list, lol. Who else?

Off-Topic / Interesting stuff (POPE + EASTERN POPE)
« on: December 02, 2014, 06:20:36 AM »

Religion is horseshit in it's purest form, in my opinion, but I sure like Pope Francis. Seems to be filled with real concern for all people (not just Catholics). Sure as hell better than the "Hitler Youth" Pope (Ratzinger)!

I'll never convert to Catholicism, but have to say that I'm a huge fan of Francis humanity, humility,  humor, sensitivity, and courage. Brilliant man from what I've seen so far. Good for you Catholic lads out there!

By the way..yeah, I know the Eastern Orthodox leader is not called the "Eastern Pope"...but we all know what he is. I find the divide to be very interesting from a historical standpoint. Very similar to the split between Sunni/Shiite for the moon worshippers.

College / Ryan Milhof - Whats the word?

Anybody out there have the goods on this kid? How is he doing in the Oklahoma wrestling room? I saw he lost 6-2 to Garrett, which I found to be pretty impressive. True Freshman kept it to 4 points against a helluva wrestler like Garrett.

How about the other youngsters? How are they doing? Are those Dixon boys doing well?

Off-Topic / My New Watch
« on: November 30, 2014, 12:03:09 PM »
The sun was dying in the west and an eerie red glow enveloped my adobe home in the sleepy New Mexico town of Las Cruces. I lounged in my living room watching "Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Pt 2". I had the volume of my home theater at an annoyingly loud volume level (revenge against my neighbors for their barking dogs). Screams resounded through the neighborhood. Right at the very best part of the movie with chainsaws a gunnin'and screams of terror piercing I head the ring of my doorbell. Sweet! I muted the TV and ran down my stone tiled hallway to the door. Peeking through the fisheye I saw nothing on the street. A tumbleweed rolled slowly past. As I opened the door I heard the plaintive sqawks of crows in the distance. I looked down and there was a cardboard box on the ground in front of my feet. I snatched it up and looked around before finally closing and locking the door behind me. They are watching. They are everywhere.

I took the box to my kitchen dining area. I noted the box didn't show the address of the sender. That was unusual. I strapped my bulletproof vest on and put on my full face motorcycle helmet (visor down) and proceeded to open the "UPS" cardboard box. Inside, nestled lovingly inside styrofoam peanuts, was a stylish blue box. I opened the blue box and inside that was the JFK Half Dollar Presidential Watch For Men. I lifted the visor on the helmet and took the watch from the box with my right hand. I whistled. I'd always wanted a watch made from a half dollar.


I noticed that the watch wasn't running. After I removed the explosive gear I grabbed the watch and went to my ever comfy couch. In the distance I heard the cries of wildcats. I examined the watch very closely and noted there were no plastic clips anywhere and the crown was already fully depressed. In fact I was unable to pull the crown back at all! What the hell! That meant I could never set the time on this thing!

I decided to call the factory to complain and found a small booklet inside the blue box. I tried to find a helpline in the booklet but nothing was listed. The booklet apparently consisted only of a section called "Caring for your watch". I looked carefully at the first page which simply said "Caring for your Watch" in gothic font. The ink was a dark rusty maroon color. I could be wrong but I swear the sheets of the owner's manual were made of vellum. I heard a dog barking nearby in the eerie quiet of the evening.

I heard the sound of steps on gravel...and the squeal of my gate's hinges. I dropped the book and ran to my bedroom to grab my pump action shotgun. I heard a crashing noise and ran back into the living room just as a stranger bounded through my back door. I pumped the shotgun and said "welcome to Hell you son of a bitch!" as I pumped 5 rounds of double aught buckshot in rapid order. Face! Face! Face! Chest! Chest!

I was shaking all over. Sweat dripped from my brow as I lowered the shotgun and walked, in my puffy WalMart slippers, over to the body on my back patio. I think that shotgun had the equivalent stopping power of a '69 VW minibus. Good Lord brains were all over my back door, wall, the bug zapper was splattered pretty good as well. I looked up and heard sirens...barely at first but getting louder every second. I looked back down and saw what appeared to be a small, but bright, pinprick of light. It was seemingly being sucked into the JFK watch! I heard a mocking laugh in the distance. I slowly walked over to the watch. I noted it was glowing brightly. I picked the watch up and felt a felt sickly...unholy somehow. As I looked at the face of it I saw the hands on the watch set themselves. I looked at the time on the cable was the exact time. I couldn't resist. I felt compelled to slip the watch on my wrist. As I did the glow from the watch dissipated and I felt greatly refreshed. How odd. I picked up the owners manual and flipped to the next page. The booklet said:

Congratulations on your JFK watch! This watch uses a special Japanese HellQuartz movement. The accuracy of your watch varies with it's power level. Whenever a soul is absorbed the watch will be at 100% power and will synchronize itself to the atomic clock, regardless of range. It will always set itself to whatever time zone you are in and it'll even take care of DST (you never have to set it!). Your watch will have perfect accuracy until the watch's power level drops to 25%. At that point your watch will lose 1 minute a day until day 25. When the power has expired the person who wears this watch will die unless another soul can be provided. The watch cannot be destroyed, to do so would kill watch owner.

I was stunned. PERFECT ACCURACY!! Sure, the watch was ugly as sin but you can't beat that! Plus since I'm a serial killer anyway I should never have to worry about running out of power! Not unless it requires more than 4 people a month.

Off-Topic / Old guys wrestling tournaments
« on: November 24, 2014, 05:27:16 AM »
I've been wanting to compete again. Any tournaments for old guys like me (49)? I want to be out there kicking the crap out of other old guys. Don't want to hurt the youngsters confidence!

Off-Topic / Woot! Got a free Rolex!
« on: November 20, 2014, 07:45:02 PM »
I was navigating the rugged Himalayan foothills accompanied only by my faithful manservant Standish. We had been contracted by the Pradesh Office of the Governor for the East India Company to remove a particularly noisome tiger from the region. Several native levees had already been savagely mauled. I had been accosted by the Foreman of the levees, a sniveller by the name of Thigat, that I had been to blame for the incident by making the levees sleep in an unsecured area with our supplies, including 2,000 pounds of fresh Rhino meat we had.....found. Long story short Standish and I were fortunate to be stranded rather than lynched from the nearest tiger-infested tree. Standish and I were making our way south by following a small creek we had found when we heard a twig snap. I looked over to my left and saw the orange hate filled eyes of a maneater. Standish was much closer to him than I....and I was very close to a tree nearby. I slowly inched toward the tree when the tiger roared. Standish was frozen by fear, but I clambored up the tree like a monkey. "Standish" I cried, "move you damned fool!". Standish blinked and looked up at me, on a branch above. He simultaneously saw the tiger. I reached down and yelled "Jump man!!". Standish jumped...a tad late. However we clasped hands and I noticed his very fine Rolex Submariner. Unfortunately my reverie was interrupted by the very loud girlish screams of Standish. The tiger had latched onto Standish's shoulder and was methodically chewing. I started pulling as hard as I could when with a loud "pop"....Standish arm separated at the shoulder. I nearly lost my balance but managed not to fall and to hang onto the arm as well. The tiger glared up with sullen savage hate, then it dragged Standish off into the bushes. I heard a series of cracks and slurps and other nasty noises but I managed to sneak away while the tiger was occupied. I put the Rolex on my left wrist as I sneaked away.

College / D1 wrestling rankings - why is Okie State ranked so low?
« on: November 15, 2014, 10:38:13 PM »
Just curious about something....why is Oklahoma State ranked all the way down at #9? They return more NCAA points than all but 2 or 3 other teams. They return an outstanding possible 3 time champion in Dieringer, a runnerup in Kindig, and another AA in Marsden. Plus they have good wrestlers with a real shot to AA at other weights, including guys like Klimara (R12), Gary Wayne Harding looks like he'll be a very strong 133 pounder, Anthony Collica should be a potential AA as well, plus some other good wrestlers. I can see being ranked beneath the teams returning more points in the tourney, teams like Minnesota, PSU, Edinboro, Cornell, and maybe even Iowa....but being ranked below Missouri, Michigan, and Nebraska...I'm not getting it. None of those teams return more AAs I believe or as many NCAA points. Granted Nebraska has Green and Kokesh, who both might end up champs after this year. But besides Houdashelt and Waters what does Missouri have to beef up their score at NCAAs? About Michigan...well I don't know how they are ranked in the top 10.

Somebody explain this to me please. I can't help but think Okie State will finish in the top 5 or 6 this year and could possibly surprise a lot of people and win the whole shibang if their youngsters come on very strong. I'm expecting big things from Harding, btw. More than I expect from Marstellar to be honest.

Off-Topic / A Fool and his money
« on: November 06, 2014, 09:56:29 AM »
Time to discuss one of my peeves....ostentatious morons spending tons of money for inferior products because of the company's name. First up...Harley Davidson. Harley Davidson makes very expensive motorcycles...yet Harley doesn't publish horsepower or torque numbers with their specs. Why is that? Because because virtually all the Japanese "clones" have not only better horsepower and torque but VASTLY better horsepower and torque....not to mention better brakes and the bikes are barely half the price of an equal sized Harley. Except for the V-Rod, Harley's version of a "crotch rocket"...which is in turn completely blown away by the Japanese crotch rockets at, again, about half the price. Whenever I see somebody riding a Harley all I can think is "sucker".

Next up...Bose. Bose makes expensive speakers that perform at a mid-low level. For the equivalent price that you spent on that Bose system you could've actually GOTTEN a high end audio system. What's more almost all Bose gear is "proprietary" and only works properly with other Bose gear! Bose, like Harley Davidson, doesn't show it's specs....which are inferior to even middle of the road speaker systems. Ask yourself why Bose always places it's displays in places where it's speakers can't be directly compared to the competition's speakers. Bose speakers, all of them without exception, have less than impressive bass and high end, and overpowering (and loud) midrange.

Lastly...super expensive watches. Spend $10,000 on a Rolex? now have a very expensive piece of jewelry that tells worse time than the worst quartz watch ever made. You'll get to enjoy the perk of regular maintenance on your watch, which usually runs $300 or more (generally more). If you spend a lot of money on an automatic "Swiss" watch...congratulations, you are a complete sucker. You have bought a vastly overpriced bling watch that tells terrible time. Top it off that in order to qualify as "Swiss made" the watch only needs 50% of the parts OR labor from Switzerland to qualify as "Swiss made".

What examples of this phenomenon...spending tons of money for an inferior product, can you guys think of?

Off-Topic / Best terrible wrestler!
« on: June 08, 2014, 01:58:32 AM »
Who is the best terrible wrestler out there? Because I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings I think we should make only veiled hints and not drop any real names! Or maybe we can use "fake" names. Perhaps the use of a fake name, and then a description of the real wrestler's faults. For example I could say "that Enba Askenra is not a technically sound wrestler! His lack of a proper double leg drives me to distraction!". That would spare Eric Grajales' feelings. Oops. But you thought I was about to make a lame Askren reference didn't you? (I suppose I just did), however until I stated that it merely proved that I am a thousand times more evil than thou. But I digress.

The main topic of the discussion are wrestlers who are starting for their team for a significant amount of time despite sucking to a high degree. Special bonus is the wrestler has good athletic ability and good talent and still sucks. Bigger plus if everybody knows who you are referring to. Of course if you don't mind about hurting feelings, you could just come out and say that Bob Miller and his 2-23 record suck.

I guess I'll start :I know a grabber (he doesn't rate the usage of the word wrestler) from the ShowMe State. A lad fair and true. He wrestles a light weight for the Okies and I think he lost every match he wrestled last year! Watching that lad taught me the true meaning to getting whupped up on, bad, in nearly every match. Just when he seems to be wrestling a pretty decent opponent very equally and is about to change your opinion of him, bam, he's counting ceiling lights. Presuming he can count. If he does he's probably saying "uno, dos, tres..."


Off-Topic / How do you pack your travel bag?
« on: June 06, 2014, 03:34:14 PM »
Most people just fold their clothes like they do at home and put them in.  It works, but reduces the amount of stuff you can carry in your bag. I prefer rolling my clothing tightly. So much space saved with tight rolls. In my carry on bag I can pack a weeks worth of clothes (1 pair of blue jeans, 1 pair of jorts, 1 pair of cotton exercise shorts, 7 pairs of socks, 4 shirts) plus my laptop computer, my medications, my Samsung tablet, and everything else. When I'm finished packing everything fits with room to spare, and it's heavy as sin.

How do YOU pack your stuff?

Off-Topic / Time to revisit another old Topic: Women
« on: May 29, 2014, 07:53:45 AM »
Love a great ass. I am not attracted to skinny boyish built women. Angelina Jolie has never done anything for me. Neither has Sarah "Horseface" Jessica Parker. Give me J LO. Give me Christina Hendricks. I'm such an ass man I can tell if a woman has a great bottom from the front. I can also tell with great accuracy just by looking at a woman's calves. That's another thing..if a woman doesn't have curvy calves I'm not interested. Keep the skinny model types, I'll take a woman with a 2 face and a 9 butt anyday over a woman with a 10 face and a 6 butt. Unless she's filthy rich.
