(For Pete’s sake, the guy’s a world champion. Either get him a proper drink or at least put some tequila and an umbrella in that bad boy.)
Georges St. Pierre has updated his Yardbarker blog with tons of fun info about his UFC 100 experience, including a description of what it felt like to tear his groin all up trying to submit Thiago Alves, and how, despite the pain, he insisted that John Danaher demonstrate what he did wrong in the fight as soon as they got backstage (still think Vaseline is the secret to this guy’s success?). But the best part is when he tells us how he celebrated the victory:
The next day I went at a pool party at Rehab with all my friends who came to support me. We had a booth (cabana) and it was great spot in the place. I drank so much that I forgot my whole name. It was very cool because at one time, Thiago Alves showed up with his entourage and came in my booth (cabana) and drinking with me and congratulate me for the fight. I thought he was a class act and that prove that he was a real professional athlete and a real good person and a gentleman. I really appreciated it, he’s a great fighter and also a great gentleman, and we had a good time drinking together.
John Fitch (sic) showed up as well, and we celebrate together our victories. Shonie Carter came a little bit later with a gold speedo and a hat and a cane dressed like a pimp with his cane. He make us laugh very much and as always me and Shonie had a great time because Shonie is a good old friend of mine. We had an amazing time at Rehab then I came back to my hotel…took a little nap of one hour and went back to a club at night called Body English at the Hard Rock Hotel. I drank so much that I couldn’t sleep at night. I took my plane the following Monday – when I got on the plane…I think I was still drunk. The flight went very well. People who know me know that I can’t sleep on the plane, because I’m always afraid of flying, but the fact that I was drunk helped me out controlling my fear. I watched the movie Shawshank Redemption – it’s very, very good.
Two things I’d like to mention here: 1) How is it that when GSP describes his experience getting hammered all day and all night and flying home drunk it sounds so dignified, yet when the rest of us do the same thing it feels like we’re just proving all our ex-girlfriends right? and 2) How does a man in a (semi)developed country like Canada make it to his late twenties without seeing "The Shawshank Redemption"? Hell yes, it’s a "very, very good" movie. It’s a goddamn classic! Do you think it would make up roughly 40% of TNT’s programming if it wasn’t?
