My only question is what are they going to do if it rains? I guess I might find out.
For now just enjoy these stupid things said in court.

I'm going to Philly tomorrow, so I've got to finish mapping out all the Rocky filming locations I want to visit.

Credentials: 2 time Lightweight Champion of the World, 2 time Heavyweight Champion of the World, UFC Hall of Famer.
However, Couture is 43 years old, he retired over a year ago after being knocked out in 2 of his last 3 fights. In his past he’s had trouble fighting large heavyweights and great strikers (boxers/kick boxers).
Now meet Heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia:
30 years old. 6 feet 9 inches tall, 265 pounds, so he’s a very large heavyweight. Also he’s one of the best strikers in the heavyweight division, largely because of his 86’ inch reach (11.5' inches longer than Couture's reach). He’s got a professional record of 25 wins and 2 losses. He's so tough that he broke his arm in a fight a couple of years ago and lied to a referee, denying it was broken, just so he could try to get his fight continued.
Here's a picture that should help you understand the size difference
All totaled, you can’t discount Couture, but it looked like it would be a tough return to the sport for him. Well, it didn’t work out that way. Couture dominated Sylvia in every way possible for all 5 rounds to become 3 time Heavyweigh Champion. It was truly one of the most amazing performances I’ve seen in sports in quite some time. It felt like I was watching a real life version of Rocky 6. If you get the chance I highly recommend you watch a replay or pick up the DVD of this when it comes out.

First they got my financial aid to me on time for the first time this semester, now they’re pressure washing their buildings. Will I have to start capitalizing pitt again? Only time will tell.
Thanks to Rusted View for this good bit of news for Dad and I.
