    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Oh yeah, National Duals for me as well 3 times, where I have a very impressive 4-9 record, losing to nonames like David Kjelgaard (x2), Brian Snyder, Brett Matter, Joe Heskett, Tyron Woodley, and Tyrone Lewis. Such fun times.

    Cool idea for a thread.

    US Senior Freestyle Nationals (1998-2008, with the exception of 2006)
    Senior World Team Trials (1998, 1999, 2001-2005. 2004 was the Olympic Trials though)
    Division I NCAAs (2003-2008)
    EIWAs (2001-2004, 2006)
    Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational (2001-2004, 2007)
    University Nationals (1998-2000, 2002)
    Lone Star Duals (2004-2006)
    National Duals (2004 and 2006)
    Fargo (2006)
    Midlands (2002... but now that I live in the Chicago area, probably more than that!)
    Big 10s (2005)
    World Championships (2003)

    A handful of international events... Klippan Cup in Sweden, Jr World Championships in Romania, Canada Cup, and Clansman Open (twice).

    Plus all the major freestyle events in the US about a million times... NYAC Open, Sunkist, etc. Not a million, but I don't feel like counting!
