yah, if youre trying to be cool and witty and clever then the last thing in the world you should be doing is wearing Penn State shirts, even if it's just a pun on his name
and im sorry, as a casual fan (this was only my 2nd time watching a UFC live) i was really really disappointed by griffin/silva
i watched the first season of ultimate fighter and ive seen some of griffin's fights since then...what the FUCK happened? that guy is pretty much known for being able to take punches like crazy and keep going...i cant believe how lame that was...granted it was straight to the chin and he pretty much drove his face into it while he was advancing, but still, fuck.
not taking anything away from silva though, his bobbing and weaving was amaaaaaaaaazing, but it woulda been nice to have gotten to see more than 25 seconds of it...
it will take a lot for me to get fired up about a live UFC again...and since i represent the mostly-indifferent observer, im gonna have to go ahead and say i wont go out of my way to watch one until brock lesnar has his next fight...i know that makes me a dipshit, but i dont want to be sandbagged like that again. hopefully griffin will come back trying to make a point so i dont have to write him off, cause he used to be my favorite fighter in the UFC. not a big deal though since i only know like 4.
"Just ahead, over the rolling wheatfields all golden beneath the distant snows of Estes, I'd be seeing old Denver at last. I pictured myself in a Denver bar that night, with all the gang, and in their eyes I would be strange and ragged like the Prophet who has walked across the land to bring the dark Word, and the only Word I had was 'Wow!'"
