Who ever thought that a website meant to get in touch with your retarded High School friends could become so fucking popular? I certainly didn’t. I mean, don’t get me wrong; I like to use the site just to see how fat everyone’s become. It’s a moral booster that allows me to drag my useless carcass to the gym at least 3 times a week. Still, no one can deny just how big this thing is now. It’s so big in fact that if any of my grand parents were still alive (I’m not counting my evil grandfather, of course), they would probably be on it right now, looking to see which ones of their school chums haven’t turned into dust.

Other than provide a bastion of entertainment for the chronically bored, Facebook is pretty damn useful for networking. To my surprise, I’ve actually seen a few groups that are MMA related, and it got me thinking:”hey, maybe this fucking thing can get people interested in our website”. It’s with that in mind that I’m calling all of you Facebook addicted Jackals to join the group, and get others on the service to join as well. Sure, it’s shameless promotion, and we’re slowly selling our souls, but the more we do, the more you get out of us.

So yeah. Facebook sucks, but what the hell; join the fucking group already.

If you thought it would be hard for the Japanese to top PRIDE as gayest MMA promotion name ever (second only to ZEST ), you was WRONG!

A few days back their was brief mention that the Heroes circuit would soon become extinct, while this is yet to be completely confirmed, reports have surfaced that this is in fact a close reality. “Dreams” as the new show is allegedly called with look to merge what some have dubbed “Zombie PRIDE” (Dream Stage Entertainment Crew) with K-1 Heroes and create a sort of default MMA leader in Japan. If this is in fact true, than I guess it would be good in some regards because we may be able to see shows like “Yarennoka!!” more frequently and hopefully with the same talent pool.

Maybe this is one of those things like the Wii where no one gets it when the name is announced but down the road it just makes obvious sense. But I dunno … HERO’S was cool if a bit strange in it’s usage of punctuation. I’d rather have kept that or made it combine with Pride into “HERO’S PRIDE” which would have been hella cool. Or at least to me it would have.

I’m not the biggest fan of Brandon Vera out there, but he certainly did endear me with the following comments:

“I wanted to punch Tim so hard,” he says. “I should have just kept touching and moving, instead of trying to light him up early. He started hitting me; I couldn’t hit him back. I started throwing short elbows to try and catch him on his way in. I sucked. That was one of the most boring fights ever. I’m ashamed to have been a part of it.”

I don’t mind too much if a fighter is boring – so long as they’re fucking ashamed of themselves for it afterwards. None of this Tim Sylvia or Andrei Arlovski “I followed my gameplan” bullshit. None of that “I don’t care what the fans think” crap.

Case in point: Karo Parisyan. I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone get as much Heat (hehe) about a boring fight than he did after his win over Ryo Chonan. But Karo manned up, said it wasn’t a great performance, that he was sorry and he’d do better next time. As far as I’m concerned, the matter’s dealt with. I don’t have to worry that Karo is happy with how things went and is going to continue sucking ass.

The same now goes for Vera. Sure, he’s an egotistical blowhard who’s swallowed his own hype. But at least he cares about having a good entertaining fight. It took a lot to keep hating him after he thrashed Frank Mir, but now I just can’t resist him any more. I … I like Brandon Vera. There, I said it!

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.

Okay, so obviously the new site is up … an hour and a half late because being the genius I am I decided to launch the site while on a train between Montreal and Toronto and the internet sucks balls. Who’d have thunk it?

There’s a few bugs that I’d like to iron out over the next day or two, but blogging comes first! So I’ll be concentrating on that and having shits n giggles in the forums / through the messenger till tonight and then will deal with everything.
