    It was only $30 to get in. Maybe because it was a Sunday night?? Everything else you mentioned I did see with my own eyes. The inside part was closed. The entire party was pool side. The waitresses are Playboy quality. I don't normally drink but I had a few $15 Red Bull and Vodkas. Scantily clad chicks dancing everywhere doing shots.

    My funometer was smoking. It went to 11 on a 1-10 scale.

    Lots of vendors. OTM, Budovideos, Atama...

    The tournament ran smoothly. My division was actually early. I had no warm up at all!

    Yeah, when I was there it was a Saturday on a holiday weekend, I think the place had just opened recently and there was a big boxing match that weekend also. The perfect storm for over charging to get into a night club in Vegas.

    Caio was so funny. After 11 matches and winning the absolute, he was walking around the casinos like it was no big deal. He went from 9 am to 9 pm. Log day, huh? I am sure my forearms would have exploded from pain by noon.

    Matheus is another coach at our school. Caio brought Matheus with him from Brazil. He is so funny. When we line up after class sometimes he'll say, "Joseph gets a stripe today. He kissed a girl last night."

    Larry is the gentle giant, at least with me! Before he was the cheese grater he was "Little Larry" haha. We watched him make an opponent go to sleep just by stacking him while passing. :icon_lol:

    What is the name of that move? Stack Pass Choke? I thought it was "The electric chair" but I guess that is a different move. Luckily the guy from Portland was okay. His legs were shaking pretty hard. A friend of mine told me it was a victory to leave the mat conscious.

    Is Larry one of Romolu's best students? Do you guys have a lot of brown belts there?

    I think it is an amazing feat for him to take third place at the Mundials at 40 + years old. Purple belt ultra heavy!!!:eek: He just got his brown.

    I was happy to meet Romolu after our fight.

    I think one of the greatest things about tournaments is the people you meet.

    ...and the pool parties...

    I thought what happened in Vegas stayed in vegas*, but it's good to know 2 things make it out of Vegas.

    Speaking as a guy from a smaller town, what exactly do you get for your $100/$200? That seems rather expensive to just walk into a place, and then have $10+ drinks on top of that.
