I hate the NBCSports webpage … it’s full of really good content, but that good content is usually buried deep in the bowels of the page, guarded by a dragon. Case in point this 6 part diary from Kenny Florian regarding his time in Afghanistan cheering up troops and avoiding camel spiders.
Sure, it reads a little like a grade 6 journal entry but what were you expecting from an ultimate fighter? To be fair, he was over there with Amber Nicole Miller, and if she was around I would just end up writing “The trip is really breasts, although the weather is sweaty thighs vulva sucking titty assride.” Fortunately Kenny’s gay or something, because he managed to stay on topic:
The bazaar was pretty interesting as we did some good old Afghani haggling. One particular elderly Afghani actually tried to cheat Heath Herring and Jorge Rivera out of more money for taking pictures on his camel. Out of all the people to cheat, he chose two big and dangerous UFC fighters. Ultimately, it all worked out and justice prevailed.
This old guy must have seen Heath’s fight against Jake O’Brien and figured the worst he’d get is a very stern laying on. I’m glad justice prevailed in this case, because the whole ‘invading the middle east and losing thousands of soldier’s lives’ thing was starting to make me think justice may not be on our side anymore.
NOTE: NBCSports is such a shitty site, they’ve already taken down all but the last entry by Kenny. Biased liberal conspiracy? Or are they just making room for more useless garbage on darts and lawn bowling? I’ll let you decide. Fortunately, Google has caches of all the pages so here they are:
Day 1 / Day 2 / Day 3 / Day 4 / Day 5 / Day 6 / Day 7
