Summer time Brother, things get a little hectic. I know I have been guilty of it myself. But it will pick up, everyone is waiting for Matt to tell his upcoming news, and his game plan for the fight.:frantics::tongue0011::tongue0011:

Agreed. Too many fun people have stopped posting or don't post nearly as much.

We need Sasquatch and Paolo to come back. They were entertaining.

Silverback is right on. People take vacations, go to the lake, sports anything but sit at a computer and discuss MMA. Religion, and politics with their forum friends. My excuse is I am working a lot more and the kids are home schooled and so they need the computer more than me. Just have Mark post his typical controversial one line remark. Let SW spout off I will tell he is wrong and than it will flow like rain, Chuck will attempt to reason with me and I will ignore him till it gets locked we hug and make up and live to fight another day. :laugh: :wink:

:laugh: If I did than Dave would feel the need to defend it and we'd have a 2000 wrod diatribe on why his post are the life blood of the forum. JK Dave you know we love you lie a brother man. But yeah we must include Dave's remarks as well be he tries to steer clear of Marks post on fear of a tar and feathering.

I'M HERE!!! Kinda. :ninja:

The last month has been ridiculously hectic (mission trip, moving, BJJ tourney, lotsa family stuff, etc.), plus we still don't have internet at my new house, so my web time is fairly limited. I'm doing my best to keep up to date on the news, though.

How did you do at the tournament?

We just moved as well. Still living out of boxes. No internet yet either, so we've been using our portable MiFi, which uses a cell signal, so it's kinda iffy out here in the country. I haven't been doing much anyway, as the heat seems to exacerbate my MS, so I've been down a good bit lately. I'm waiting to get started on a new medicine called Copaxone, which is a daily shot for MS. They sent the self administering shot thing (looks a lot like an epi pen), but I haven't gotten the medicine itself yet. A nurse has to come teach Kim & I how to store it, administer it, and what to look for as far as side effects.

Anyway, before the new move, we had Benaiah for a few weeks, which was tons of fun. I don't think I've gotten so many kisses and "I love you Daddy"s in my life!

How did you do at the tournament?
Meh, good & bad. It was a submission only tournament & my first division was no-gi Ultra Heavyweight (215+). I had signed up for a total of 4 divisions: no-gi Ultra, no-gi Absolute, gi Ultra & gi Absolute. Well, I weighed in at 217 & the other guys in my division for about 230-240ish. I lost my first match, won my next two by armbar (threatened with a triangle & when he tried for a strong-side pass I caught the trailing arm) & then lost in the Finals for a silver medal. Then I moved onto gi Absolute, where I won my first match by forfeit (dude just never showed) & then lost my next by triangle (stupid tried turning the wrong way to get out of it & just made it tighter!).

Problem was, the guy that beat me in the gold'silver match in Ultra Heavy used an illegal neck crank that tore up my neck & back. By the time I finished the Absolute division, I was in enough pain just standing still to realize I shouldn't risk further injury, so I pulled out of the 2 gi divisions.

So I'm really proud of myself for the silver medal when I was giving up an easy 20-30lbs, but bummed & more than a little pissed about the way it ended.

Congrats on the effort! At least you gave it your best. Way to go.

Good job Ben. You should have answered the illegal neck crank with an illegal head stomp.

Appreciate it, Cathy! TBH, it's a bit of a let down: my first tournament I got 2 golds, a silver & a 4th, so I'm slacking!! :laugh:

Believe me, I wanted to, but I figured that it may be a bit frowned upon. :Whistle: :laugh:
