So here I am, sitting on a train. To think I thought “Oh, the train has WiFi, I’ll be able to spend the 7 hour trip writing posts and mucking around on the new site. Well, that would have been the case if ViaRail’s WiFi didn’t consist of two tin cans connected with a string.
Anyways, we’ll forge ahead because assholes never rest. The big news today is that people are talking about Houston Alexander again. Yeah, him … the guy everyone heralded as the second coming of Jesus till he got mounted and destroyed at UFC78. Other than the explosive sound of everyone jumping off his bandwagon, we haven’t heard much relating to Houston since then.
Now word is Houston is getting a soft rebound in the form of James “the Sandman” Irvin. James has the worst luck in the world. His knee spontaneously exploded against Thiago Silva back at UFC71, and then for his comeback fight he won … because the other guy dropped a knee in his face on the ground.
Now the poor bastard is getting into the ring with Houston Alexander, who I have no doubt will be pissed off and ready to pound someone harder than he did to Keith Jardine. Does Irvin have the ground game to beat Alexander? I dunno … I didn’t really feel like going through ViaRail WiFi hell looking it up. But at a glance things don’t look too good.
