Apparently the only times I decide to write here is when things aren’t going so great. Although some of my older posts have given me pretty good perspective, I still feel like when I read them there is one obvious flaw in my life: Alcohol.

What I have to do at this point, as far as I am from where I’ve wanted to be ideally, is just pick myself up and live my life. I am not going to be a lawyer, I am not going to be rich, I am going to be really good at whatever profession I pick up. I will find a way to provide for myself, and those I care about. Stop looking at yesterday, stop thinking about 10 years from now, its now or never.

New Years resolutions

Lose at least one pound a week, equal to 50 pounds this year
Stop drinking so much, twice a week is plenty, 4 or 5 times is borderline alcoholism
Take up a hobby, something that gets me away from tv, ps3, and the computer.

UFC 126 Predictions

Posted: February 4, 2011 in MMA

The upcoming UFC 126 is one of the biggest cards since I’ve been following the sport. You have legends, rising stars, and dominating champs. I’ve been really excited for this card which means one of two things: 1. It will be full of boring decisions or 2. I will get screwed out of seeing it for some reason. I am only picking a the main card and a few others. Some I don’t give a shit about, others I don’t give a shit about.

Paul Taylor Vs. Gabe Ruediger

This one is a pretty easy choice. I am picking Ruediger to win the eating contest by 3 cakes, but unfortunately for “Godzilla” this is MMA and Paul Taylor is going to punch the 3 cake margin right out of him. Taylor by TKO, Round 2

Kid Yamamoto Vs. Demetrious Johnson

This is Yamamoto’s first fight in the Octagon which hasn’t been too kind on Japanese imports (See Sexyama, Caol Uno). Johnson has the better nickname with Mighty Mouse, and better wins in recent fights. Two years ago I would be picking Kid all the way but I see it as a Decision win for Johnson.

Donald Cerrone Vs. Paul Kelly

I really like this fight. I really like Cerrone’s fighting style. I really like that Kelly is game every time he fights. All that usually adds up to for me is usually awkward spooning along the fence for 3 rounds. I still have faith that the Cowboy will come out guns blazing. Cerrone by choke in 1st.

Miguel Torres Vs. Antonio Banuelos

Torres is long, Banuelos is short. Torres has a mullet, Banuelos doesn’t. Torres didn’t lose for almost 5 years, Banuelos lost 3 times in that period and 2 times since. Torres is being more careful and strategic, I constantly underestimate Banuelos. Torres beats a very tough Banuelos in a Fight of the Night winning Decision

Jon Jones Vs. Ryan Bader

No one has ever heard of this guy Jon Jones. Hey, UFC, can we get some hype behind this guy already? Bader is a great wrestler, with developing stand up. Jones is very similar. Only Jones is much more explosive and athletic. Jones wins by TKO in Round 3 in a back and forth wrestling match.

Jake Ellenberger Vs. Carlos Eduardo Rocha

I believe that Carlos is related to the former lead singer of Rage Against the Machine, but that is pure speculation on my part. Honestly I think this is a case of the UFC setting up a young prospect against a solid name on a main card to build its roster. Ellenberger has looked good his last two fights and a win here would put him in the upper ranks to be mauled by GSP.  Rocha has stopped all of his fights in the first round including his UFC debut against Kyle McCray. Rocha by Submission, who cares what round, it’s gonna happen some time in the 15 mins.

Rich Franklin Vs. Forrest Griffin

What to say here? Both possess great all around skills. I think Franklin will be the quicker, Forrest is probably stronger. Franklin is probably better on the feet, but Griffin has the better ground game. It is pretty much a push so I am gonna go with my gut. Forrest by Split Decision some how involving Cecil Peoples fuck up

Anderson Silva Vs. Vitor Belfort

I can’t pick against Anderson Silva. He proves time and time again that he’s not only better than you, but he can make you look like an idiot too. Vitor hasn’t even fought in the UFC middleweight division yet. He’s got great hands, he’s got good speed. Again he’s fighting the best striker in MMA. A striker who has submitted the likes of Dan Henderson, Chael Sonnen, and Travis Lutter. This could be a B.J. Penn vs. Frankie Edgar situation but I see no possible way Vitor wins. Anderson by KO, round 3

Bonus Prediction

Strikeforce will some how fuck up their HW tournament. They already made one side tougher than the other. I just have a feeling that someone is gonna back out before it starts, and an injury will force someone else out, making them fill it in with Wes Sims and James Thompson

I would think there would be a better description but saying Seth Green in a microwave isn’t really appropriate either.

There are just some teams that when they come out on the field just look better, faster, or tougher than the other team. One reason is because the recruiting policies at this particular school are pretty lax, but another reason is because of the uniforms. I am not like most college football fans. I like the new style uniforms, not just the classics, but i also appreciate the classics. I have what are the best full uniforms and some parts of uniforms that just stand out by themselves. (ed. note: these are all behind the Black and Gold of the University of Iowa, but I see it as unfair to try and match anything up to that perfection.)

5. San Diego State

Simple, yet modern, with great colors. Didn’t try to over do it and it shows.

4. Temple

They haven’t had much of a football program, but they sure do look good. Good colors, clean and simple, yet classic. The stripe on the pants and the logo on the helmet is what sells this one.

3. Oregon

Most people hate these, I love them for just for innovation. They don’t over do it like some teams or any team in the NFL. They would be number one but I have two reservations about them. For one, the number font looks like 50’s science fiction movie titles and for two, they are Nike’s testing grounds, they should have the best.

2. Army

I always love black and gold, and Army does it right. Simple with the modern yet classic stripes on the sleeve.

1. Michigan Wolverines

I really don’t like them as a team, but they have the most iconic uniforms in sports. The wings, and the solid colors are nice enough that they haven’t changed anything since nineteen dickety three.

I also have to include odds and ends, just because I like certain parts of other jerseys

Indiana’s helmet because the great color and nice wide stripes that are perfectly spaced.

Iowa State’s yellow jersey because it’s unique and its about the most tasteful you will see a yellow jersey

West Virginia’s pro combat uniforms are cool because they pay homage to the state’s history and culture

It’s a strange topic to start my blog on but for me it’s something important. If you don’t look good, you don’t feel good. A good uniform can be marketing tool, an inspiration, or just intimidation. If these teams were people, they would be wearing white high tops from Wal-Mart, white tube socks, jean shorts, a Nascar t-shirt and complete with a mustache. They lack classiness, intimidation, even a central theme. I’ll start my countdown with the 5 worst.

5. Georgia

Georgia’s uniforms (especially the black ones) seem to lack an overall theme, The helmet has a white stripe, the jersey is okay but ties in very little with the rest of the uniform, and the pants are gray. Why are they gray? The colors scheme up to that point seems to be black, red, white. The gray just dulls the whole uniform and matches nothing else.

4. Toledo

Navy blue and yellow are colors that are best done subtly, but Toledo didn’t think so, there uniforms are over designed. No flow, nothing classic, nothing unique = boring.

3. Florida A & M

Florida A & M have the worst color scheme ever. The guy who started their school had to also make candy pumpkins. What makes the uniforms worse is that they try to use both colors equally and in no aesthetically pleasing way.

2. Cal

You look like a pussy cat scratched you, or like you’re about to say meow playfully. Again with the not so subtle use of navy and yellow.


Again, similar Florida A&M, these guys were founded next door to a banana cream pie factory. To compound things they have a white helmet, brown shirt, and yellow pants. Match something or you look like a 4 year old me when my dad dressed me.
