I'm posting these in a hurry so people from the forum can see them. More explanation later. Suffice it to say that the East Coast Grappling Championships was an amazingly fun and well-run event, and I want more of it in the future!
In no particular order:
T3, DAB (aka the Angry Exploding Troll, aka The People's Knee, aka Rock, aka David Jacobs, Esq.), and Letmbleed.
The John-Father (who looks strikingly like Tim Roth) and Valhalla
Joemoplata grinding the Bad Ass Coffee (That sounds a little dirty.)
Super Sam and a bemused, victorious Salvatore (something was going on off screen)
Valhalla's brush with brown belt greatness (why is my head so enormous?)
Supervixen, aka Bracketing McSoftwaregenius
Brain and Burdo considering a fashion risk
Valhalla with, as it appears on his birth certificate, Tatame--I'm back, bitches!
MC Moses (you've probably heard of him b/c he's known throughout the microphone), Andrew/Goatfury's hands in front of his face, and the back of Marissa Talley's head. Not the best pic, but the only one I had of Mike.
Two of the tourney masterminds, Clinzy and Goatfury (speaking of hugemongous noggins)
The Bleeds (Letm and Letr)
Valhalla and Christine Vaz (did I ever take off that jacket? Apparently not. Probably not even while competing.)
Shavonne and Valhalla. Rivals on the mat, friends off, or something.
Valhalla and Opala make a DAB sandwich. (DAB sandwiches always have extra cheese built in.)
At Goat's school after putting the mats back down yesterday (a sophisticated process that involves lying down a lot, shooting the breeze, dragging things, counting things, and jumping up and down on things): Back row is Goat, Justin, Brain, Gumby, Mike, and Mike's beer. Ladies in the middle: Amanda and Clinzy. Bringing up the bottom and pointing at something best ignored, Mikebyrd.
