The devil is in the details


Most of you are already fully aware that I am a complete idiot. I know sometimes I say things that make you second guess yourself from time to time, but overall there’s not a week or two that goes by where I don’t prove once again that if MMA blogging was a class I would be at the back wearing a dunce cap.

I seem to be suffering from a certain amount of fighter dyslexia recently. I keep messing up the names of big dumb James “Colossus” Thompson with small and wily Josh “The Punk” Thomson. I also have a hard time keeping my Thiagos (Alves / Tavares / Silva) sorted. In fact, I wrote a betting article for BetUS where I had Thiago Silva going against Karo Parisyan instead of Thiago Alves.

We like to laugh and joke about my fuckups on this site and how insane it is for anyone to rely on my betting picks. But when I’m freelancing I try to live up to a higher level of professionalism than when I’m farting around on this site. So I just wanted to say I’m sorry about that mistake and I’m going to work hard to make sure stuff like that doesn’t happen again. The good news is that the Thiago that fought DID beat Karo, so those who did choose to take my incorrect advice didn’t suffer for it. But still … goddamn what a fucking retard am I???

    I thought it was a blog about the devil first of all.most of the post you were calling yourself an idiot and I was in complete agreement.then the last couple of sentences were like…by the way “spoiler”!whatever

    Trolls are almost as awesome as ponies, and should be taken almost as seriously.

    A little self-doubt goes a long way toward double-checking facts. Public self-flagellation goes a long way toward having a little self-doubt. So I’d say you’re on the right track.

    You also said Thiago Silva on your radio show.

    Not that I bet, but if you’re gonna be dispensing gambling advice you might want to lay off the beers and get the names of fighters right next time.
