And no annoying sports writer yapping in this one:

It's pretty cool that Ed O'Neil is a BJJ black belt under the Gracies. The star of Dutch (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101786/) has been visiting the Gracie Academy (http://www.gracieacademy.com/) for over 17 years and gets weekly private lessons for Rorion. Extremely baller (http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://blogs.redding.com/lgordon/assets_c/2009/09/al_bundy-thumb-300xauto-12305.jpg&imgrefurl=http://blogs.redding.com/lgordon/archives/2009/09/&usg=__U6O87AZwDiTTor1_yaNjqcHSAVg=&h=225&w=300&sz=11&hl=en&start=0&sig2=zTX6FPgzESz8s_070CmW2g&zoom=1&tbnid=2ktyE8aOQDov7M:&tbnh=113&tbnw=158&ei=GeXrTd2KDoLi0QHBs4i5AQ&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dal%2Bbundy%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfiref ox-a%26hs%3DMOf%26sa%3DX%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26biw%3D1920%26bih%3D927%26tbm%3Disch&itbs=1&iact=hc&vpx=727&vpy=514&dur=379&hovh=180&hovw=240&tx=138&ty=87&page=1&ndsp=75&ved=1t:429,r:30,s:0&biw=1920&bih=927). The more I think about it, with his Pittsburgh Steeler background and lethal Gracie BJJ, I would take Ed O'Neil over James Toney in an MMA match, I think he could bring it down to the ground and sub him fast. Maybe faster than Couture. I don't even care about the age difference. Then again Ed would have to adjust to the no gi game...hmph.

In the latest video from Ryron and Rener (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1N23qOTqZo) we get to listen to Ed talk about the wild 90's (http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_3tTwRJdmNKk/TSEVvGCcOBI/AAAAAAAAAPk/fWwOEXrPcyU/s1600/so%252Bhigh.jpg&imgrefurl=http://ushudbekilled.blogspot.com/2011/01/i-am-procrastinating.html&h=557&w=710&sz=99&tbnid=cBXEQcSXtfzEPM:&tbnh=91&tbnw=116&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dthe%2B90s%26tbm%3Disch%26tbo%3Du&zoom=1&q=the+90s&usg=__kpaIOVhIe5q862bBk6Dul4rOOCU=&sa=X&ei=neXrTd39MMrY0QH836CIAQ&ved=0CEIQ9QEwAw&dur=608) and when he visited the Gracie Academy for the first time with Apocalypse Now writer John Milius. I hope it puts a smile on that face of yours.
