UFC 101… and a Wedding

August 7, 2009

Ugh. I knew this day would come. A great fight card right in my backyard and I can’t go. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is a mere 4 hour and 10 minute drive from where I live. Alas, there is a wedding to attend.

I shouldn’t be surprised. I’ve been preparing for these events since early April. I even tried to get the bride to change the date. I’ll just have to settle for an hour of church and 4 hours of open bar. Then, if I’m coherent enough, I’ll hook the laptop up to the LCD in the hotel room and pass out with a Keystone Light (They have that in Syracuse, right!?) in my hand.

Or, hopefully, we’ll find a bar downtown that’s showing the fight with a minimal cover charge. Based on this list, I’m not optimistic. Oh, well. Worst case scenario, I’ll be watching Sunday afternoon/evening. UFC 101 and WEC 42 should make a deadly double-header.

If you missed it, my UFC 101 Preview is up at The Big Lead. It was set for 4pm yesterday, but then Rashard Lewis tested positive for drugs. How funny is it that the NBA has more players test positive for PED’s in August than the UFC? At least I’m assuming everyone turns up clean post-fight at UFC 101 and 102.

Anyway, follow my adventures on Twitter all weekend. It should be a grand ol’ drunken time.

One last thing – Go Forrest.

    I think cursedcleveland lives in Syracuse now. Hit him up and I’m sure he can show you a link to a sweet pirated feed.
