The big deal is that we are at 6 effing weights, that's what the big deal is.  F*ck the ioc and the rocks every single member crawled out from!

High School & Lower / colorado high school individual rankings
« on: February 02, 2015, 05:24:38 PM »
I tried to find the latest rankings for individuals but I keep being referred to TIm Yount's pay site.  Now I am glad someone provides that service, but I wish the local paper would or the high school association would just provide it.  Local high school coverage on the Denver Post is sporadic at best.

world champs?  Who else plays this style of football?  I never understood why they call it a world championship.  Other than that, good game right up until Seattle pissed it away.  Since I hate both teams it is hard to get upset one way or the other.  Regionals are next weekend and then state.  Now for some real excitement!

It's one of those fights that will likely never happen even though everyone wants it.  The promoters will each blame the other side.  Such is the nature of boxing.

College / cant get Iowa MN dual on Live?
« on: January 30, 2015, 05:54:37 PM »
I thought it was a free preview on ustream or a live audio was available but can't get either.

Iowa will have the last laugh tonight when they shut up the rabid MN fanbase.  Either that or they will incite a riot!

College / Re: Proposed Collegiate Rule Changes

It was merely an exaggeration on my part.  In an ideal setting, the boundaries should not be part of a scoring strategy.  In sumo the goal is to either push the opponent out of bounds or make the opponent fall to the ground.  In freestyle, folkstyle, or greco, the boundaries should just be an area that if action carries you beyond, that you restarted in the center.  No scoring should be involved if someone steps out or is pushed out.  I like the idea of going back to calling the zone and using the zone in our style.  I hate playing the edges and using as something to prevent scoring or as a get out of a bad hold by scrambling out of bounds.  Rules already exist to call stalling,  I would just like to see it called more often.

Any variation of push out or step out just turns it into sumo.  Penalize top for not working for a turn by standing them both up, AND still award the escape.  The top doesn't necessarily have to get the turn but it has to be an honest attempt at turning.  At the same time aggressively call bottom if he turtles up just to get the free start.

It has been a long time since I read the book, I am not even sure if I finished it.

Since I was acquitted, I am at a seafood place stuffing down lobster, crab legs, and new england clam chowder.  I am chasing it with the most expensive red wine in the house.

There is suspending disbelief and there is trying to pass off fictionalized accounts as the truth.

I would rather they not make a movie, Hollywood will just mess it up.  There are enough documentaries and other good material to get a good accurate story.  A 2 hour movie will not do him justice.

Go Hawkeyes.  Not because I am a huge Iowa fan but because I hate Mn.
