    abas and lester make me want to cry. Props to both of the victors, but I know what these guys have poured into the sport.

    It's very wierd about how the beauty of the sport can be revealed in these heartbreaking losses.
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    Consider this- Sanderson could be called the Micheal Jordan of his sport. But would MJ take a moment to speak with a fan and ask where they were from and make a connection? I think not. And to man they all gave me that time. Sanderson, TC, Hellickson, Kenny Monday, Brands etc the list goes on. Again, the level of class was something I wish my 5 yr old could have seen. He will be there next time God willing and it will have a lifelong impression. Oh and by the way, $150 for three days of that level of wrestling. I would have gladly paid $2,500 if I knew I would get that kind of exposure.

    You would pay $2500 to see a sporting event?

    If I knew I would be sidelines and coomunicating with every athlete the way I did- sure. Not sure where you sat if you were there but for $150 I sat front row by the stairs the athletes and coaches used. Also, when they lined up for the medal ceremony they were right in front of us and we had a great chance to talk to all of them. You do NOT get that in other sports. PS- People pay way more for nose bleed super bowl seats and the games end up as blow outs. I'll admit it was more of a figure of speach but the exposure and level of competition compared to other sports is unprecedented for me.
