YOU ASK IF WE'RE WATCHING THE NBA FINALS. WE ASK IF YOU'RE WATCHING THE WORLDS!!!

Seriously, grapplers. If you are anything like me and many of my brothers and sisters heavily involved in BJJ (and MMA), you get a lot of flack from folks who expect you to know what's going on the in the world of traditional sports.  Personally, I just fake it. I've found that if you say something about "3-pointers" or "Kobe's injured finger" you should be able to get by. (Avoid mentioning Magic or Kareem though, as they have apparently been retired for over 20 years.  Who knew?)




But, hey - they say "Kobe or Lebron?" We say "Kron or Kayron? (answer: Marcelo Garcia)" They say "Lakers or Celtics?" We say "Gracie Barra or Alliance?" (answer: RCJ Machado).

[Note to our non-American readers (all 3 of you): Just substitute references to NBA Basketball with Formula 1 or Soccer and the jokes will work - guaranteed.]




So, here's to the WORLDS, grapplers!  See you Sunday!!






Here are the DSTRYRsg predictions for Worlds Black Belts

  • Rooster: Bruno Malfacine.
  • Light Feather:  Guillherme Mendes.
  • FeatherCobrinha (i.e., Rubens Charles Maciel).

  1. HAHAHA love this. And it's true, soccer (football) here in the UK is about to go ballistic with the World Cup about to kick off in a week's time. But for the first time since I was born, I really can't get too enthusiastic about it. I mean I religiously watch every game from every obscure team in every World Cup every four years. But this year, nah. Come the Mundials though, you'll catch me ogling the live stream until my eyes peel apart in the wee hours.

    BTW. A Small Cobra like BJJ black belt may be sliding his way to the UK later this year and your blogger right here is standing by for the exclusive. You heard it here first my friend.

    Now go slam dunk or hot first base or whatever sports people say these days :0

  2. Yeah, bro!! It's all about Kobe from what I can tell. A lot of high-five'ing and fist-pumping going on as well.

    Intrigued by your hint - I await more information.

    Side note: Watch out for Mexico in World Cup! El Tri!!
