  1. Ah, you’ve been there before too I see. Nice!
  2. Oh ok, I get it now since you used all caps lock. 🙄
  3. Hey Uncle Jimmy! Ok here goes my thoughts on this and I’ll try my best to stick to what I KNOW as fact from my time with Coach P and Carmel Wrestling as best I can. First, please know I’m not in anyone’s inner circle and like Coach Vega said, I do not know any of the details other than what has been made public. I love wrestling and I love Carmel wrestling although I haven’t gotten to be part of it lately as much as I’d like. I’ve been to war WITH Coach P and FOR Coach P and I’m not going to abandon him now just cuz things are a little uncomfortable. Can he be a little stubborn? Yes. Can he be a little disorganized? YES. Can communication be a little frustrating with him from time to time? Hell yes! Can his shirt be a little too small as if it was his daughters before she outgrew it? Yes!!! Is he a cheater? NO! Not during my time there and I find it hard to believe that in the last three years that’s changed. Honestly, from my personal perspective the story doesn’t add up the way it’s being reported. When Clown Baby Jr. wrestled there, I asked specifically about sauna suits because I saw so many wrestlers using them in different programs and had no idea they were illegal. It’s something you can buy at Bloomingdales right off the shelf so why would I? You’d a thought I just walked across freshly disinfected wrestling mats with street shoes on. I was told absolutely not to put CBJ in one and not to bring it up again especially in front of parents who may be inclined to use them. I hate that this is happening right before the state tournament starts, it’s terrible timing not that there is a perfect time for it to happen. I would make a plea to anyone calling for the wrestlers involved to be disqualified from the state series to think about what happened to those kids last week in Washington DC. They’re kids and the punishment doesn’t fit the crime. Also, it could easily be your kid or program going through this and I for one promise you I would feel the same as I do now and I would stand up for them too. Even if said kid was in CBJ’s weight class. I want to add also to what Coach Vega said about dealing with parents. I’m just going to put this out there, sometimes us parents can be huge assholes and very difficult to deal with. Unfortunately there’s a few who may be surprised to hear it and if so, you’re probably one of them. Can you imagine being a wrestling coach at any high school these days and dealing with the parents, the AD and the wrestlers and doing it for what they get paid? I’m out of line now but I’ll just say it takes a very special breed to do it and I appreciate every one of them. Wrestling Scholar - Where are you drinking in Carmel for only $20 a pop? I shudder at the idea, you should be drinking at least $40 drinks here. Is it black market basement booze? Never mind, I’ll have to take you out for a good $65 top shelf drink sometime. You too Uncle Jimmy.
  4. I swear we had this conversation last year! Nicky Blaines......Your going to find this hard to believe but....I'm banned from there. The lobby area seemed nice for the 2 minutes I was in there. Apparently "Mr. Blain" took umbrage with me showing up with several members of the Hooters wait staff in their work uniforms. Who knew that would be frowned upon. Oh, plus Clown Baby wouldn't be caught dead paying anything less than $21 for a martini. I prefer the 1933 Lounge at St. Elmo's, now that's classy! For the breakfast eaters, Yolk is my jam. Crazy good food and as of the last time I was there, the decor was Carmel Greyhound blue and gold.
  5. I gotta say, I called this one at sectionals. He's my upset special of the tournament to win the weight class. He's a matchup nightmare for a lot of wrestlers. I have to say though I hate to admit this. As a Carmelite, it's in our constitution that I can't be a fan of anything HSE. They don't even have their own Audi dealership over there.
  6. Oh, I forgot to answer that one! My go to SS is the same every year and will be until the end of wrestling.....New Castle baby! Up or down year, it's NC, Clown Baby ain't no fair weather fan.
  7. Haha, I'm actually somewhat close to you right now, heading west on 20 stopped at truck stop called Gallops. I'll swing by and pick you up if you don't mind drinking Zima until we can score some old dog. Hell, I'm alright with "da region", they're pretty tough people. Met an older gentleman at an college tournament earlier in the season who fell off the balcony. When I helped him up, he didn't know where he was anymore but he had a Region Wrestling shirt on and blood pouring from his snout. Didn't even want any help. True story
  8. I really gotta ask this......is there any chance this was a misunderstanding? What was the context? I ask because, to be honest, this doesn't sound like coach p to me. I mean, even if there is a history or something I don't know about, I would find it very doubtful on any level you have made the guy angry more than I have and I can honestly say, he's never done that to me personally. In fact, I would kind of say he's gone soft in his old age......I'm teasing, he's still a fireball. But it kind of comes with the territory of being a wrestling coach. You can't please everyone all the time so it kind of becomes impossible to even try. If that truly happened to you, then you've got every right to feel that way. But something tells me there's more to the story than just that.
  9. Oh no, everything is fine....better than ever actually! With Baby Clown Baby all growed up and out of the house, I don't have to feed that human trash compactor any more. His ice cream bill alone is subsidized by the wonderful families of the Carmel wrestling program and that's like $1,800 a month I can put back into the living large budget. Yeah, the jeep is just one of my wrestling transportation options. Other than that, it's nothing less than an Audi.
  10. Wait a minute......how'd you know that? I've obviously got a security breach somewhere in the chain of command that needs addressing. And for the record, it's actually the "Clown Baby" suite that "Mr. Simon" is graciously "allowed" to use when wrestling is not in town. As long as he minds his p's and q's and doesn't drink all of the diet apple Slice I have shipped in from a warehouse in South America. They haven't made that since 1989 you know? It's the caviar of import diet sodas.
  11. Oh snap! I just happen to have an inside connection on a stretch clown car which also happens to be just a normal size car for non clown types. Me and my posse will roll 35 deep in a shiny new jeep. Of course there will be valet parking involved whatever mode of transport is used. Oh, my Uber ban just ended last week so there's that option too. Seems they frown upon trying to squeeze 18+ people in full clown regalia into the back seat. The puke rule may have broken too even though we managed to get the "bulk" out of the window. Sheesh!
  12. I never realized how spoiled we are to get this sectional preview every year. You really do a great job.
  13. Haha, thanks man! Was that too much? Jeez, in my head that came across as brotherly advice. Is that a banable offense? Can you put in a good word? As for the old Audi, I had to put her down once she got a salt stain on her, I couldn't be seen driving around in that so I traded her for a shiny new Jeep.
  14. Odd? You wanna know what's odd? A mom coming on this thread and trying to tout her kid as one of the most dominant big men ever in such a passive aggressive way. Seriously, this is coming from someone with plenty of his own detractors here. And then the most awesome display of gross misconduct by trying to play the victim is your response when called out. I'll put it in easy to understand terms for you: Parris and Gelen top 1% of wrestlers period. There's absolutely no shame in being a top 10% wrestler. I don't see Ellis mom and or dad on here lobbying for Evan do you? See the difference? That's why you are taken to task, it has nothing to do with Gunnar. Your behavior here today is what causes targets to be placed on backs of teams and wrestlers.
