Dont you get the feeling that god hates trailers?

Seriously, that sucks. Old people + trailers = no money to start over w/. I think I'll take hurricanes over fire and earthquakes.

The skies are red and ash is falling here from the Slymar fire.
Kinda hard to breathe.

I can't imagine the horror of losing your home.

Glad you made it out ok, Greg. I was actually up in your area that evening, trying to help a buddy evac his parts inventory and some project cars.

I've still got the fight recorded if you want to see it!

Well, it looks like I'm out on the Wednesday trip...too much work to do. But I might take Friday off if he wants to install and watch some fights. Heck...I need to get my new diff covers ordered and drain/refill the fluid.

Still can't believe f*ckin Lesnar won.

Really? 41yr old 6'1" 220lbs vs 31yr old 6'3" 265. Even with Randy's experience he was no match for Lesnar.

My opinion, Lesnar is the real deal and will "captain" the UFC for the next 4 or 5 years. I'm sure the UFC would like him to stick around as long as Randy, but at that size and that much power, I don't think his body can take more than 6 fights before he's injured and then... done.

Did you know? Lesnar made that little biatch "Triple H" cry like a little girl after one of their "matches in the WWE? Seems Lesnar couldn't "hold back" in the Wrastling ring...

That's some funny stuff about the Triple H thing.

Honestly, I have no doubt that Lesnar will be a force in about a year or two. However, put him up against somebody his own size (right now), he will have some problems. I'd like to see him fight Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva, who also cuts drastically to get down to 265 and ran through the heavyweight division in Elite XC. The Randy/Brock fight didn't show a tremendous amount of skill, but did show that size really does matter...thus the reason the athletic commissions are looking into dividing up the heavyweight divisions right up the middle to even things out a bit.

I have always had a lot of faith in Randy. I just think that despite being 45 years old, the 15 month layoff from fighting is what really did him in. Heck, I just came off a 13 WEEK layoff after knee surgery and felt like I was constantly one full step behind my coach when we fought last week.

Plus....I've been hit in that same spot Randy got hit in...and it really sucks. You don't really feel it until the next day, but you suddenly wonder, "What the hell am I doing on the ground getting hit?"

Thank you for the entertaining hijack.
