miles

Miles is my lab/greyhound mix who i've mentioned many times on here. As is common in many of what my vet calls "sight hounds" aka lab, greyhound, afghan hound, saluki, he has developed a tumor at the base of his heart that extends down into his lungs. The vet said he will likely not experience any type of rupture due to the proximity of the tumor to his heart, but will probably slow down more and more and one day "lie down and fade away." this is weird because it's how our first...

da mystery of clothesshoppin

Posted 09-27-2008 at 11:23 PM by swpthleg
I spent most of the day at our lame local mall with my 2 girls and I didn't get anything. which is fine, I don't need much at the moment anyway (Except shoes. I always need shoes). I continue to be astonished at the amount of time it can take one kid to pick out clothes. It used to be my older daughter who would deliberate for over an hour in 1 store (I am not exaggerating), now she's more decisive and it's my younger one who took 4 hours to pick 4-5 shirts. we went between old navy, pac sun, american...

I have considered thai boxer but i think to look authentic the gear would be expensive and my fight stuff isn't geared toward MT, partly because it's not taught anywhere where I live. I'm also thinking it might be disrespectful. Not enough ppl realize that women fight MMA where I live so they wouldn't get it if I put on a Sprawl rash guard and some fight...

Rules suck!!!

Posted 09-11-2008 at 07:39 PM by ZZtigerZZ81
Last weekend I was watching College Football Live, and I noticed that the rules committee of the NCAA followed suit and took away the fun of their sport of football just like the NFL. Well, it only took two weeks of action to see why the officials just suck at life. When Jake Locker went into the end zone and lightly tossed the ball into the air after scoring the game-tying TD and was subsequently flagged for it, I was disgusted with the whole situation. I mean this guy just did everything that...

Rounding....

Posted 07-22-2008 at 12:48 PM by Steve-d
Well i have felt pretty comfortable with my BJJ for a while now, there are somethings that could improve it that are not exclusively related to it. For instance i could be a bit more powerful, i need to get a bit stronger and then i can move my opponent around better and make take downs easier. The skill & knowledge i feel is there though which is why im now focusing 100% on my Mauy Thai.

Im working on bringing my stand up to the level of my BJJ and at the same time doing alot...
