    TUF Tryouts in Boston, MA

    Did anyone happen to go to the TUF tryouts in Boston?
    I know J-Lau is in that area, I wonder if he tried out?

    I didnt go. I'm far too small, and fresh out of surgery.

    I know Bobby McMasters went, but was told he was too small and didnt make it past the first round.

    Fred from South Shore went, made it to the final 27 and was told his accent may be a problem.

    Craig Buckley from South Shore went, made it to the final 27 but was told he is too polite, hah.

    Jerry Spiegel went, but didnt make it past the first round of stuff.

    They had around 200 people show up for it, but thats all I know.

    Apparently, they want more "Chris Leben" types, who will piss on someones bed, destroy half the house. Then when it comes to getting in the cage, he gets his ass handed to him.

    No offense to Leben, but he did get his ass handed to him (twice), then cried about it.

    I thought about going down just for fun, but have 3 mo old baby daughter i have to babysit, I'm in crappy shape compared to 3 months ago due to baby and a torn calf muscle I'm rehabing. I don't have the ground game to make the show anyway, but would have been fun to meet some local competitors. The show sux but it would be something to do on a wed night. A few other guys from our gym went, but no chance in hell they made the cut.

    I would have went down just to watch, but the casting call was open, the audience was not.

    He was owning the **** out of Florian before the fight was stopped due to a cut.

    My gym-mate, Charlie Bishop was on the "impressive" list, but I don't know if he got a callback tonight... I hope he did. He can be mean if he wants to! But... he'll still look friendly.
