TUF After Action Report

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

I’m not gonna recap the whole episode, as that I live-tweeted the whole thing last night when the power came back on.
Just some thoughts.
Diego, couldn’t tell how good he actually is, because he swarmed poor Silar … can’t help but think that if he did that to a more experienced dude, he’d get […]

TUF - Live Tweeting

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Hey, so I just got power and cable back in time to catch The Ultimate Fighter, and I will live-tweet my reaction to the show, thus sparing us all the recap I usually do the next day.
You can follow my tweets @writerjoshjames … see you in the twitter-sphere!

TUF After Action Report - A Tale Of Two Psychos

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

I live-tweeted this episode last night, and found it somewhat disappointing for reasons I will explain as we go on.
The title was Swagger Jacker or something like that, because Redneck Josh was mad because Triple Sack Dustin (and hey, they call him Triple Sack because he has three balls, but really, why Triple Sack? […]

Two fights this week on The Ultimate Fighter show, two more eliminations and Bisbing’s team is already down two to nothing going into the episode …

TUF After Action Report - Triple Sack

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

Otherwise known as … Dustin has three balls.
Yes, it’s true … TUF contestant Dustin Pence has three testicles. We know this because Akira told us this, and because Dustin himself told us … his nickname, as a result, is Triple Sack.
Because Dustin has three balls.
We begin this episode with some major conflict […]

TUF After Action Report - I vs I

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

A little late on this, but shit happens, so what can I say.
Here’s what else I have to say. If a striker cannot keep a grappler from taking him down, at least can’t prevent it long enough so he can land a knockout punch, he’s gonna lose. Doesn’t matter how good he is, if […]

TUF - The Scrappers

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

Okay, so normally on TUF, there’s only one fight per hour long show, occasionally two … which makes it easy to blog about, you have some training, some house drama, a confessional and two guys with attitude square off at the end …
Last night’s opening episode, however, had sixteen fights.
SIXTEEN FIGHTS.
They made […]

I Don’t Like Reality Shows …

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

Because, well … they’re not real. Ninety percent of the time.
That means, you think Hulk Hogan and his ex-wife are fighting, I think they decided right before the cameras arrived to have a fight, worked out the beats, had the fight and then, when it was done, asked the producer … “did you get […]
