    Not what you were probably thinking, but I had to post about my son's first wrestling tournament. It was a very long and tiresome trip. First we got lost and then we got lost again, and again(GPS lost satellite signal). We got to hotel and left because a few parents didn't feel comfortable and said the place was too ghetto being there were 2 guys about to fight over money in the parking lot(I think they were doing some sort of gambling). So we found a nice hotel in a nice area and stopped there. While waiting to get our rooms we had a lil football game going with the kids in the parking lot and about 50-60 ft away a man gets robbed at gunpoint. We spent the next 2 hrs dealing with the cops. We left Fresno @ 2:30pm and didn't get settled in our rooms until 10:00pm. My buddy saw the getaway vehicle so @ 10:30 the cops came back and took him to a strip club to try and identify the suspects. Wrong guy, but free show. Got up early and went to the tournament. First match my boy was a little overwhelmed by all the people and didn't want to go out so he had to forfeit his match. After his teammates pumped him up it was on, and he started kickin a#*. My boy is only 4yrs old and had to wrestle kids 6yrs old. At the end of the day he walked away with a bronze medal in his very first tournament, even with a forfeit, which could have put him in the match for silver or gold. Sorry this was not a report of CatMan(Cali) catchin the big one, just a report of a proud dad enjoying the first of hopefully many accomplishments to come. I tried to attach a few pics, but don't know if I did it right. Tight linez.

    Sean!
