    pretty interesting.

    for those of you that don't know. Rafael won his 3rd gold at the Pan-Ams. he's really representing BJJ for the Americans.

    wow. this board really disappoints sometimes. here is a link to, arguably the best american BJJ player, blogging his week leading up to his pam-am win and nobody responds. in contast the "will i be a wite belt for too long, even though i am not even tainging yet" thread has 4 fucking pages.

    There's not a whole lot to talk about in the blogs.
    "i'm upset I lost"
    "I really wanted to win"

    yeah, we're really in his head...

    Otavio sometimes trains with us- fucking strong as hell (dude's like a small pelet of muscle) and although I'm not the best person to critique anyone's technique he seems to put up quite a good fight with Braulio and Victor... imho.

    lovato seems to have a tough time against smaller technical opponents. regardless he's still probably the current no.1 american in the game
