1-1 on the weekend





Well, I waited all day yesterday and part of today to write this because I had mixed feelings about the fight I attended on Saturday night but I will attempt to give you an update to what happened.

Let's first say a big congratulations to Mighty Joe Milligan for his win at Samstown in Tunica. I understand it was a great fight and Joe was impressive from start to finish. Joe's record now stands at 4-0 and the future looks bright for this fighter who is willing to step into the ring with just about anyone. Props to Chris Gates and Dr. Mark Romano and everyone else that helped Joe prepare. Maybe I can get some pics to attach to this post pretty quick.

Ms. Toni and I took two teenagers to the fights at the International Agricenter in Memphis to watch Goldman Butler fight. Goldman was up against John Dixon of Biloxi and did not disappoint us with his performance. Brown was 7-1 coming into the fight and, in my opinion, was well on his way to 7-2 as Goldman controlled the first round and most of the second. But, Goldman got caught with a good right cross and went down after the referee had separated the two in the second round. I didn't understand why he separated them as they were both fighting on the cage, throwing knees consistently and pummeling hard. When Goldman went down, he immediately rolled and grabbed Brown's leg to bring him to the mat and was obviously well positioned to defend but then the ref jumped in and stopped the fight. I was surprised to say the least and the crowd reacted with boo's all over the place. In my opinion, the ref goofed up the whole fight. That is just my opinion but it is what it is as was the results. Either way, Goldman did us all proud. He was obviously in great shape and put on a fantastic show. This was easily the best fight of the night.

There were 5 fights on this night:

Justin Rice won over Bobby Hill in the first round.
Ryan Caprari won with an arm bar over Randy Fields.
Chris Myers won with a triangle over a very game Jeremy Wallace (Great fight.
Chris Hawk (crowd favorite) won with an arm bar over Sean Frens but it was a brawl.
And finally, in the most exciting fight of the night, John Brown overcame Goldman Butler in a TKO, referee stoppage.

Goldman is still the "man"! John "Do do" Brown said during his post fight interview, "I found out tonight that I am not the strongest guy in this weight class." We know Goldman will be back soon. I for one cannot wait to see him fight again.

AGEMA - What does it mean?




According to Wikipedia "AGEMA" is defined:

"In ancient Macedonia, the Agema, meaning literally "the guards", were the elite guards. In Macedon, especially under Philip V of Macedon and Perseus of Macedon, the Agema formed an elite body within the corps of 'Peltasts'. This corps is not to be confused with the light infantry. The Macedonian Peltast corps was the equivalent of the Hypaspists in Alexander the Greats army."

The "Agema" were historically utilized as the elite guard for Kings of their time in many areas. Their duties included escorting Kings into battle and were considered the best of the best and respected worldwide as dangerous adversaries in any situation.

Joe is at it again!


"Mighty Joe" Milligan looks to continue his winning ways. Joe will be fighting a dangerous opponent as he tries to push his record to 4-0.

Bang! Fighting Championship always puts on an exciting show, and with Joe on the card it is an event not to be missed.

Nutrition "Wake Up Call"



The following is a paper that was written by my son, Austin Dulaney, of Cheyenne, Wyoming. Austin is a an amatuer cyclist,(soon to be pro), racing in mountain, road bike, and cyclocross events. I asked him to allow me to publish this after I read it as it was an assignment he had for college.

Doc and Chris are always reminding us of diet. I thought this fit well. It certainly opened my eyes.

ASSIGNMENT:

For this assignment I chose to go to Burger King. The nutritional information that was given to me was astounding! The fat, sodium, and caloric values of most of the items on the menu were staggering. Even what I consider to be a small meal, like the one I ordered, was almost half the daily-recommended allowance of the normal 2,000-calorie diet.
The more popular sandwiches such as the flagship “Whopper” have 670 calories. Keep in mind that this is without cheese, and with only a single hamburger patty. Other items like the “Angry Chicken Tendercrisp” sandwich boast 1030 calories, 2670 mg of sodium, and an artery hardening 105mg of cholesterol. Even healthier items such as the “Tendergrill Chicken Salad” have as much as 1450mg of sodium. So, upon evaluation, one could easily see why quick serve restaurants must me chosen in moderation, and not for every meal.
The meal that I ordered was the traditional American lunch. A cheeseburger, fries, and a Coke. As I ate, I looked closer at the numbers, and began to lose my appetite. My BK double cheeseburger (ordered as normally served) contained 29g of fat, 14g of saturated fat, 1020mg of sodium, and 510 calories. The medium sized salted french fries contained 23g of fat, 2.5g of saturated fat, 820mg of sodium, and 220 calories. Amazingly, my Coke was the least unhealthy item that I ordered, with 0g of fat, 0g of saturated fat, only 10mg of sodium, and 290 calories. All this means that in that small meal, I took in about 1020 calories, 1950mg of sodium, and 52g of fat. I was previously aware that Burger King was not the healthiest choice for lunch, but I thought the convenience outweighed the consequences. It is now more than apparent, that I was wrong.
In this assignment the question is posed, “Will this change what you order the next time you visit the restaurant?” The answer is a simple no. This is because I don’t think I will be visiting “The King” anytime in the future, due to this newfound information. Veaganism has never looked so good.
