(Come on now, Antonio, that simply isn’t true.)
Let the drunken debauchery begin again. After Dave Kaplan’s fight, Tom Lawlor decided to get drunk with Kaplan. They began to drink each other’s piss, which in itself is just disgusting. But these guys were downing them like shots of tequila. The sad thing is they did not even show the grossest part. Kyle Kingsbury took a plate and a towel into the bathroom and came out with nice big hot steamy Lincoln Log on a platter. He told the guys he would give some cash to whoever eats it. Tom held a piece up to his mouth but couldn’t go through with it. The pot kept getting bigger with us all chipping in, but no one went through with it. I hope they put that on the DVD…GOOD TIMES.
To quote Smokey from Friday — Kaplan “got knocked the Fuck out, Man!” That was even funnier watching it than hearing about it. Kaplan is an extremely smart guy but sometimes I question his intelligence by first asking for someone to “try” and knock him out. Second for not admitting that he got knocked out knowing full well it was on camera. There is one issue with Kaplan and that is he will not admit when he is wrong. He’s a bit delusional. He can’t get knocked out, he is the best looking guy in the house, and he gets more chicks than anybody. The list could go on.
The prank on Krzysztof Soszynski was pretty funny and only fitting since he initiated the pranks-before-fights ritual. It didn’t take much time for us to put all the stuff in his room. It was funny to see that his teammates didn’t help. His prank in return actually made his team upset too. It must have taken a lot of time but everybody in the house was affected. Krzysztof had to take all the stuff in himself.
(Not pictured: Tom Lawlor in assless chaps.)
The coaches’ challenge was hilarious, watching two fighters play soccer. Coach Nog came through, winning us a thousand dollars each that we used for an after party. However, did Mir just say that he is two hundred times the athlete as Big Nog? With all due respect, is Mir related to Dave Kaplan? Do these guys come from La La land? Please remember Coach Mir, I did say “with all due respect.” (To quote Ricky Bobby)
Now to the fight. It was no secret what the next matchup was going to be. Krzysztof Soszynski and Kyle were the only two fighters left at 205. It was interesting to see Vinny not supporting his teammate. Is this the beginning of a rivalry? They are both from the same school, Team Quest. It might have something to do with Krzysztof and Elliot saying they are going to meet in the finals back on week 5. But could it also have something to do with Dan Henderson showing up to prepare Krzysztof and not Vinny? I might be reading too much into this but I found it interesting.
As far as the actual fight goes, we were pretty confident that Kyle was going to win. We felt that the blue team guys (with the exception of Vinny I guess) were underestimating Kyle. They forgot that Kyle lost to Bader to get on the show. Bader is an All American wrestler. I thought Kyle was going to knock Krzysztof out standing, but I also didn’t think Krzysztof had a ground game. Kyle is a pure physical specimen and played football. He needs more experience and he will be a force. Krzysztof showed his experience and is now in the semis.
Stayed tuned for next week to see the last fight for my weight class before the semis!!!!
Other notes on the episode…
— Besides the piss-drinking thing, Dave and Tom are fond of wearing Speedos around the house. “It’s horrendous,” Shane Nelson says. Tom Lawlor also goes to bed with a sleep mask — another sign of a man who totally loves women.
— Dana White has never played baseball.
— Frank Mir asshole quote of the week: “At first I was really upset with them as far at how disrespectful they were, but then I realized that a lot of them are losers. They’re never gonna be studs. That’s just the way it is.”
— Next week will feature the last quarter-final match, George Roop vs. “hard-hugging lightweight John Polakowski.” It’s the moment none of you have been waiting for!
