more thoughts & a Mir quote

after thinking on it a bit, I believe that Lesnar's "antics" come from a pretty deep-set sense of inadequacy. I wonder if he has a really teeny-weeny. Like a dickie-doo. We'll (hopefully) never know. For all of Lesnar's talk of "loving" the boos, you know it hurts. part of his journey from scripted circus clown to mixed martial arts is a quest for legitimacy, for the people to love him as an athlete. They don't. He's a jackoff, which he proved at his most emotional moment.

Frank Mir speaks up to the press, closing with

"Hopefully next time, I'll show him how somebody is supposed to act in victory."

While the interview has plenty of cockiness (bordering on seemingly self-delusional, but athletes always seem that way), it also has plenty of humility and congratulations for Lesnar. Mir is just not a jackoff like Lesnar.

So, hopefully Mir wins two or three in a row and we see Lesnar-Mir III. I'd pay for it.
