Whenever I'm talking about sports with anyone (basically the only sport I follow) I usually end up saying it's the UFC. Not a lot of people know what I am talking about when I say "mixed martial arts".

ohh, uncool. I'd have felt kind of dirty after that.

Did you feel dirty?

I always ask people at my work, they don't call it MMA or UFC, they call it kickboxing. I'm like, "that's K-1." They think kickboxing involves ground work...

BUT THEY ALL KNOW KIMBO!

Everyone in my area knows that Liddell is the Champ still.

One chick saw Greases fight Hughes the second time on tv and announced real loud 'the new heavyweight champ!'.

As the goat would say; The f*cken moron. A F***** MORON!

And why the hell did you not attempt sexual intercourse with this woman? Did the "easy money" affect take away some of the appeal or did she look like a walrus?

She didn't have any money. Plus, I kinda feel bad for people that make themselves look rather 'unlearned'. Makes me look at them funny. A funny look that can only be cured by an ether rag. Unfortunatly, I ran out.

Next time I move I am doing an old fashioned neighboorhood sweep. Go door to door and interview the people. I have only lived next to either no one or old people. On top of that I havnt lived with anyone that really knew anything about the sport. I would love to have a neighboor that loves the same shit I do. Work on cars, watch mma and drink da beer everyday. Just walk on over at 9am yelling through the window to wake up just to be an ass. Then walk home and go back to sleep. Thats the kind of shit that keeps me from insanity, Or is it sanity. I forgot.
