That’s right, I will be going to Chicago today. I’m looking forward to having some good meals while I’m there. I have been watching the Food Network with my girlfriend, picking out all the best stops. We are looking to go for Chicago style food – hot dogs and pizza, you know, the healthy stuff 🙂 We will be checking out Vito’s and Nick’s Pizzeria, Hot Doug’s, Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, and Portillo’s Hot Dogs. I will let you know how that goes!
But the reason I’m going to Chicago besides the touristy stuff is to watch Strikeforce! I’m very excited to watch the main event, Fedor vs Brett Rogers. Although I believe Fedor is going to smash Brett, it should be entertaining nonetheless. Jake Shields is going to have a good fight with Jason Miller and there is also Gegard Mousasi with the very explosive Rameau Sokoudjou. The undercard doesn’t look all too great though – I have never heard of anyone in the first six match ups. I think I will came in late to the show just to see the last five fights.
It is going to be the first time in a while that I will get to watch fights live without having to corner anyone or worry about a teammate. It definitely takes the edge off and will allow me to really enjoy the show stress-free. Our last team outing was in CR Fights, where I got to watch the two Mikes kick some butt last weekend at CR Fights. Michael Rio won his fight in the second round by the so aptly named Mikeaconda, while Michael Bernhard won his fight quickly with a devastating Kimura. Those fights were not too stressful, as both Mikes took care of business and dominated from start to finish. But there are fights that when you are watching them, your stomach is twisting and turning like a circus contortionist.
Anyhow, I will fill you in on the details of my trip day by day. Have a great day!
