Just saw her coach post on myspace that she won both the divisions in Naga Dallas that she entered.
that's my future baby momma.
Fuck I wish I had her dedication/money/ability to train and travel all the time/boobs/ass/etc
yeah, she's super rich.
When are you going to stop and rest? More power too you, you gotta be in pain sometimes.
congrats, thats awesome. we need the details stat
she has the money/sponsorships to travel all over the fucking place, not work, and compete. which means she has more money than I do.
i get a chub everytime i see her victorious wins
Guys, I only did one division today (nogi expert). The number of refs with the gi rules knowledge to ref high ranking gi is low, so I would have thrown off several mats and they needed me to ref. I won my first in overtime on points, second in under a minute by armbar.
And Cybereye, as for me "not working..."
I arrived in Dallas at 2 pm on Friday and set up all the mats, tables, chairs, organize all the clothing, not sitting down for a break until 5 pm. At 5, registration began as we all did our best to get 500 preregistered individuals completely organized into fair divisions and settle the nerves of endless bitching mothers until 8 pm. At 9, after some extra chores, we were able to leave.
Saturday morning we arrived at the venue at 7:30 am after making due with cereal from the continental breakdast and did registration until 10:00, when we started collecting competition cards and bracketing while 6 billion annoying idiots are questioning you about exactly what time they'll go without realizing that about 20 people are supposed to be keeping track of 1000. at 10:30 the rules meeting started and I commenced demonstration of illegal and legal techniques, while Kipp frustratingly assured a kid that, yes, a RNC is legal.
With that out of the way, kid's competition started at 11:00 am. I've had half a bottle of water so far and each time a parent yells or a kid cries I'm getting more and more life sucked out of me. At 3:00 pm, after about 5 hours already on my feet amidst chaos, I was alloted 30 seconds to go to the bathroom, change, and take my first expert match without a warmup. I competed, worked the table until my next match 10 minutes later, and competed again. After being yelled at for being too slow, I couldn't go change or rest, but threw on a ref shirt over my competition gear and got the show back on the road, on my feet again, reffing, chasing competitors, defending argued calls, getting yelled at in english, spanish, and portuguese until 9:00 rolled around and all the competitors had gone through. The one slice of pizza I was given at four and the other half of my water has not been nearly enough to keep me going, but I have to pay attention and make as few people mad as possible. At this point, breakdown begins, with stress to get everything in its right spot as quickly as possible, not to mention rolling up huge dollamur mats and getting them to the truck. By 10:00, we were out and done, just a 15 hour work day.
Yeah, piece of fucking cake.
Nice work Hilldawg.
Sounds like someone had a big day. Kongrats.
thats EVERY naga, just telling him there's work involved
Congrats Hillary, you'll be pwning Kim Couture in no time
wherd off the shizle
I don't think he was implying that you don't do anything. More that most people can't jet all around the country to train and compete because of jobs and such.
Yea we all know it's hard work hillary, I think he's more commenting on the fact that most people aren't lucky enough to work in the same field as their hobby/interests.
so defensive holy fuck
big ups to hill-dawg
I hate when people say that they wish they could do the stuff I do...just DO IT. I'm pre-med and work at a hospital outside of full time classes...if you want time, you can find it. I'm not rich, sponsors give me about 1000 per year if you add it all up...
The harder you work, the luckier you get.
