Brock Lesnar quits Wrestling and tries at the NFL:

26-year-old, 6-foot-4, 290-pound—pretty much all muscle—Brock Lesnar is quitting Wrestling and trying to make it in the NFL. Being in both sports is not rare; many wrestlers were former NFLers. What is rare—I think Lesnar would be the first—is that he is trying to go from Wrestling to the NFL—all the others started with football first.

Lesnar didn’t play college football, but was a star college athlete. He was the 2000 NCAA heavyweight wrestling champion for Minnesota. And based on what I’ve seen from such big wrestlers in no-hold-barred circumstances, they are some of the most effective and dangerous martial artists on the planet.

Next I’d love to see Lesnar join the UFC. I’m sure he could thrive there too. In a hypothetical no holds barred fight between Lesnar and the late Bruce Lee, I’d put all my money—literally the mortgage to my house—on Lesnar, and I doubt the fight would last more than a few seconds.

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
