    Hmm... I'm going to be in NYC on the 7th, but my brother and I are training out to Philly on the 8th for UFC.
    So close....

    Hey Steve,

    The white whale of the sport's section of my magazine, the NY Boxing Examiner, wrote a rather old school slam on MMA as a sport today and I'm on the edge of putting an open invitation to him and some of his more vocal fans to come down and see what a throwdown is like, as I assume if anything can change their minds you classy gents can.

    Before I print this invitation, since it will be at your school rather than the more public location at Fight House, I was wondering if that would be okay with you and the crew.

    Since we are a small gym, I would just invite him and one other...

    Update:
    As mentioned, my brother and I are going to see UFC 101 in Philly that night. However, we're probably going to be spending Saturday afternoon in NYC. What time do you plan on having the Throwdown, Steve? If it's early, I can probably join for a little bit.

    MMmkay. And lets listen to the man and keep this **** on target and on topic.
    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    -excerpt of the poem called "Desiderata," by Max Ehrman, 1927.

    Okay, I'm in communication with Mr. Marley and our mutual editor. The editor approves of the idea so it's just a matter of getting Marley to sign off on it.

    I've been talking to the other 6 guys who do MMA writing for the Examiner for different parts of the country and they say the dude might be a little bit of an odd gent. Apparently he even challenged one of them to a boxing match. So, I'll try to make sure he's on the up and up and not planning anything weird before I bring him.

    No matter how it happens, I'll be there to do a quick write up and participate. My only training since I moved back to NY has been for the Mighty North Fork Triathlon yesterday, so if I do participate I'll probably be best suited for some Starnes tactics.
