While you dry your tears of sorrow, WATCH THE OLYMPICS and WOMEN’S CAGEFIGHTING
July 27, 2012
Happy Friday, everyone.
Large and small. Up in the clouds, down to the Earth. Running to and fro. Is it fro? What is fro? Or stationary on the couch. Blonde and brunette. Red head and blue head. Real or fake. Rich or poor. Although, rich people a little more because they own more computers than poor people generally do, so there is a higher percentage chance a rich person will actually see this website for me to wish them another happy day in their rich lives. White, black, mocha, cappuccino, nacho cheese from all that fake tan spray. Whatever you may be, Happy Friday.
I’ve been sidetracked this week as most have been.
I was writing about the August movies and previewing them in that way I do. I haven’t forgotten about that. The other 2/3′s of those movies will be talked about next week. That is unless Rob Pattinson is caught making out with Liberty Ross or going down on Tina Fey or something of the like. Why Tina Fey? Well, I feel like if Rob does decide to move on, Tina Fey’s a great choice. Some may say something like – but Tina Fey is married! And I’ll respond, but have you seen her husband? He couldn’t possibly be allowed to have sex with Tina. Their children are all test tube babies in my opinion until we see a sextape confirming actual physical sex between the two. Or at the very least you could try to keep pace with my thinking and just live in a possible future world where Rob Pattinson is now banging Tina Fey and then she’s going to write all these awkward cameos for him to do on “30 Rock”. How does that sound?
I did want to mention a few things before you go off to your weekends of tequila blackout drunkedness to forget about Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson seemingly breaking up for the rest of time…
1. DON’T SEE “THE WATCH”
I won’t lie, I’m not sure if I’m going to end up seeing it myself. I may not take my own advice and not see it. Also, there’s a chance that I see it and love it and then Monday I’ll tell you to go see it… BUT… I have said in the past that you should probably be expecting this to be really funny because all these funny people are in it and the premise really isn’t that bad, but after one looky loo to Rotten Tomatoes and you’ll see that EVERYONE HATES IT! The last number I saw was the movie hovering around 15% on a scale of a possible 100%, so it sucks. I just don’t want you to have an endorsement from me in the back of your mind to go see that movie. I’m not endorsing it. I would suggest that you either just stay in and watch #2 and #3 of this upcoming list or go see “The Dark Knight Rises” again because the movie is wonderful.
Won’t lie, if “The Watch” does actually suck – I blame it all on the director.
2. WATCH THE OLYMPICS
Like all of them for the next 2 weeks.
It seems to me that most people become cynical about the Olympics at some point in life and sometimes that stretch of cynicism goes on for years, but don’t be that person. Don’t. There’s nothing to be cynical about with the Olympics. The only people who should really be cynical are actually Olympians because most of them are broke. Speaking specifically of the US Team, these are amateur athletes in a country built on millionaire professional athletes. Besides the men’s basketball team, there really are not many highly paid athletes amongst them. Most have made a lot of sacrifices and are more or less living off of donations or small sponsorship deals to get them through untold months/years of training to try and win a medal not only for themselves, but for our country. I wish that these athletes did get paid well. I wish they all did. It’s incredible what they can do and for most of them there is no “professional” avenue following Olympic glory and most of them won’t end up marrying a Kardashian like Bruce Jenner.
Although… imagine if they did! Sure, I’m secretly rooting for myself to some how be taken in by the Kardashian clan, but let’s say my spot is given to possible gold medal winning US men’s freestyle wrestler Jordan Burroughs of Camden, New Jersey… well, I would be cool with that. As long as I get regular status updates about how much fun they’re having. I don’t really watch any of the Kardashian shows, but I saw a couple episodes of “Khloe & Lamar” and minus all the staged drama, it looks like fun over there. So, if Jordan Burroughs takes my spot then I’m cool with that.
Back on topic, you should watch Jordan Burroughs wrestle this Olympics. As well as all the wrestlers. And judo players. And swimmers. And hurdlers and sky divers and big game hunters. I don’t know all the events, but I think some of those were real.
Also, I wrote about some of these Olympians for UFC.com, so check those out…
That one is about Freestyle wrestling, which Burroughs is mentioned in. There is a second one about Greco-Roman wrestling already up as well too, which is linked in that link. And there should be a judo one being posted today and probably a boxing one up tomorrow.
3. WOMEN’S CAGEFIGHTING – INVICTA!
Starting at 6pm and probably going to midnight is INVICTA FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIPS. It is a new cagefighting/MMA organization solely for women fighters that started a couple months ago. They’re based out of Kansas City, Kansas and Saturday night will be their second show. The first show was great and the second show looks like it could be even great-er. To watch the fights, go to their website and watch them for FREE as they stream them for FREE. It’s really the best deal ever. FREE. FREE. FREE. I love MMA. I love women. I love women fighting MMA. No brainer on that one.
If you don’t believe me and want to see THE BESTEST HIGHLIGHT VIDEO EVER… then watch this highlight video of the first Invicta show done by E. Casey Leydon from MMAfighting.com…
I think that’s all I have to say for this Friday following a random couple days.
I did see one piece of insight on WWTDD.com… he didn’t mention her getting eaten out. He said he thought the she was getting her boobs licked. That sounds more likely. Now that I type that out… it doesn’t sound that comforting. But whatever.
Have a great weekend.
