Succinct, though voting for Sanjaya was the epitome of stupidity, and we are involved in a sport that has a large gay fan base.
Had a slightly more polite, but nonetheless interesting conversation with friend the other day on the topic of athletic development, comparing JJ to Hockey.
We dont have a lot of Jiu-Jitsu tournaments around here and we were comparing it to hockey. His son plays a game a week at 6 years old for the entire winter. Imagine what MMA would be like if there were a grass roots system for building the athletes from a young age. Wrestling isnt common enough up here, and the McDojo classes for kids do nothing to prepare them because they dont expose them to the competition environment.
On balance, Sydney will likely get a few more athletic awards in his future then the rest of us can imagine.
