Two Saturdays ago, I went to Colorado to the Ft. Collins MaxMuscle where they were putting on a fundraiser for a 7-year old boy named Jackson Maybon. Jackson has had problems his whole life, but they just found out he’s got Cerebral Palsy as well. The owner of the gym that coordinated everything, Ron, did an awesome job with putting the whole event together. There were over 2500 people who showed up for the event and they raised over $7000 for Jackson – the event went very well. Here’s a picture of me with Jackson and his family:
Last Saturday, I flew up to Minneapolis for my buddy Dustin’s grand opening of his new store, called Element Arms. It was an easy appearance as I signed a few autographs, took some pictures, but mostly looked at guns and even found a few I might need to bring home. Dustin used to work for DPMS, but now is doing his own thing and here is his website: ElementArms.com
This next picture was taken several months ago while I was in a deer blind hunting whitetails. Well as you can see I’m pretty bored, so I tried to get as many sponsored products as I could in one photo and this is what we came up with. Can anybody name the sponsors and the products? A prize will be given to the first person to get them all right. This contest will be held through the forums, so don’t post your answers on the blog. If you don’t have a forums account, it’s free to sign up and it only takes a few minutes; but you will have to contact Nate at firstname.lastname@example.org so that he can manually activate your account (you can also contact him if you need help registering for an account).
For the UFC this weekend there are only a couple of fights that I’m really interested in watching:
Silva vs. Leben: To me, this is going to be very interesting. The majority of people I’ve talked to about this fight say Wanderlei will win. I, on the other hand, think Chris will weather the storm and come out in the later rounds and get the victory. I see this fight 60%/40% in favor of Leben.
Ortiz vs. Bader: I’m really surprised Tito took this fight. It seems like Tito never takes a fight that he doesn’t think he’s absolutely going to win. I see Bader taking Tito down and just being too much for him. If they were just hitting pads I would say Tito might look prettier, but this is a fight and Tito doesn’t like to get hit. I’ll say 65%/35% for Bader.
Now you know there is a certain someone on the forums who likes to bet the fights with me; so if he wants to send me a text, he knows my picks.
