'Nothing is so common as unfulfilled potential'
Yeah ellington(285lbs cadet) is big. our finals match wasnt really a match. i was laughin the entire time. hes just so much bigger than I am. i only weighed in at 232lbs so i was easy to move for ellington.
question concerning team name
Ok, I have a concern....now before I'm branded a homophobe, I have to ask...what is with the team name "F.A.G.S"? First off, I do not want to belittle the wrestlers...they are no doubt athletes who are working hard (and excelling) in the greatest sport on earth. But HOW do we better, or advance, the sport, when we apply such an incendiary name? It almost seems as though we are saying "I dare you". I respect political correctness, but NOT in the face of, I will do this to make a point. It is more than likely a great team name. So why not spell it out, verses attracting unnecessary attention. Why propagate a stereotype? I don't mean to offend, just concerned....
I am in agreement with you. There is an entire rather large thread about this on the "AA" board titled "Inappropriate Team Names".
