I get to armwrestle my friends. The first two guys I met in the sport were Allen Fisher and Luke Kindt at a tournament and they both convinced me to pull amateur instead of pro. (Laughs) That was the best decision I ever made.

I did well and then I kept showing up and now I'm chasing these guys down. They are two of the best in the sport and they happen to live in California. I get to see them a little more frequently than not. Both those guys are better armwrestlers than me so there's no pressure when I get to go armwrestle them. I look at it as fun. I Get to try and take down these guys who are leading the pack!

They are both going to be there this Saturday. Luke's got some redemption to do based on last year. Look for him to come out fired up. Allen Fisher, "Mr. Intensity", you know that guy brings the show. That guy at 60 or, however old he is, he's still got it.

I'm honored to be on the same playing field as these guys but... I'm coming to rip their **%&ing heads off.
