Every year for the last three years, I have gone to the NCAA Wrestling Tournament. I go with the Grizz out of St. Louis and we watch the five sessions of wrestling on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday--and in between we wrestle each other and various other guys.
The first year, we went to Philadelphia. That was a great trip. It's where I met a lot of really cool guys--and wrestled a ton. Last year in St. Louis was fun, too. Again, I got to wrestle a lot of hot guys and had a great time.
This year, in Des Moines, Iowa, was no exception. I got to wrestle several guys (Mat_Titan, Ltwtwrsinyc, and JTWrestler). The pic above is of me wrestling with the Titan himself. As you can see, he was resorting to some dirty tactics to distract me. And yes, I was distracted.
What a cool guy the Titan is, by-the-way. I really enjoyed being around him and wrestling with him. It's always great to go on these trips and make new friends.
Ask any of the guys I went with. I am totally obsessed with the tournament. I skipped going to dinner two nights because I was afraid we wouldn't get back in time for the opening matches. I got to meet a lot of the wrestlers I like (we stayed in the same hotel as they did) and just generally got off on all the incredibly hot guys who walk the halls. (College wrestlers are my absolute favorite body types--short and stocky.)
My next trip, ironically, is to Oklahoma City in April. I will be meeting up with a friend from Denver and wrestling some of the local talent. Until then, it's back to the gym and back to writing on Middleboro.
P.S. I was so bummed that David Taylor did not beat Kyle Dake. Both guys are really nice (and I met them both) but I have a soft spot of David and really wanted to see him prevail. Oh well. Next year.
