That would be like seeing Chuck Norris. If you see him and you're alive then he let you live. Otherwise you wouldn't hear him coming.

Yeah, it's a gamble. If it sees you, you better be in a cage or car cause it can and will get you.

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

What's with the moment of silence?

I was squeezing in one more MRI on my insurance today before the new year starts. They had no record of my appointment that was made almost 4 months ago, so I had to wait until they had some room to fit me in.

If you take Blue Diamond towards Pahrump it was on the other side of the peak. We also saw one inside Red Rock Canyon just before the peak along Rocky Gap Rd.

We haven't found anything positive that says there are Mt. Lions in Red Rock Canyon, but we're fairly certain we did. We're almost sure it had a cub with it too, but it was up the valley before we could get our cameras on it.

Speaking of the cage, I have my tickets for UFC 141 tomorrow! Lesnar vs. Overeem! Battle of the steroid monsters!

Not sure why they are having it tomorrow. Their events are usually on Saturdays.

Those are some big boys! I was at the fashion show mall last week and the owner of one of the places came in. He was probably 5'10, 325-350, and maybe 5% body fat! Huge, veins sticking out of veins big!

It's because of new years or so I heard on the radio today. Did you get a hook up on the tix or pay. I don't think i would ever pay to go mostly because of the enormous amounts of ****** walking around.

I try to go to all the local events. I have a friend at MGM arena that gets me seats. The UFC doesn't like to air with empty seats, so if an event doesn't sell out they give away tickets. What my friend does is get me tickets to any seats before the event, but when the event starts he takes those seats from me and moves me closer. There were only a few events where I wasn't floor level.

I've sat behind Dana White a few times. He sure does cuss a lot.

Overeem swears he doesn't use steroids.

I have no dilusions about Lesnar and his steroid use, but at least he's passed all of his random tests since entering the UFC. He was in the WWE, so nobody is surprised he's used steroids. I'm no fan of Lesnar's, by the way. Take away his size and there's really nothing exceptional about his fighting.

Overeem originally refused to fight anywhere but Japan where there is no required steroid testing. He also failed to provide a required sample to the Nevada State Athletic Commission claiming he didn't know about the required test. He took the required test two weeks later. Conveniently, two weeks is about the maximum most steroid compounds will test hot. He's fighting under a provisional NSAC license.

Also, I'm picking Lesnar for the win. Overeem is a great striker, but he hasn't been up against as powerful a wrestler as Lesnar before.

Lesnar, TKO by ground and pound, first round.

Overeem was likely a more effective fighter before he tripled in size. It's difficult to swing an 80lb legs over your head! And flexibility goes bye bye when you get huge! Tendons and ligaments tighten along with the muscle-it's a natural way to prevent injury. I agree with Ysb, he'll go down an out.

Hey man, who am I to question the local news? If Ron Burgundy taught me anything, it's that the local news is never wrong about this stuff.

That's pretty cool. I can't say that I am not jealous because I am. If Lesnar doesn't win it's staged. He is just a rotten bad and angry person. I wish I could see it. I bet is doesn't last 3 rounds. At that size one hit it's over. Cheers.
