Well, I felt so great about beating (nay, TROUNCING) CagePotato in the Ipecac bet that I went and got smashed on dollar Caronas and ended up puking anyways. Not to the degree that Ben is going to, but it was still unpleasant. The best bit about winning was that it validated my picks … for UFC84 I admit that I just followed my gut feeling and fucked up a couple of obvious picks (Koppenhaver over Yoshida? WTF).
A lot of you guys thought I was on drugs when I made my picks. Even after the event there were people over on CagePotato saying “You definitely had the better picks, Ben. Logic and intelligence will prevail over time- but not every time.” Well la dee da. This time I actually used my logic and intelligence to do some research … scary what I can accomplish when I put my brain to it, huh?
That puts the official score at Fightlinker 1, CagePotato 0. Now that our losing streak is over, perhaps it’s time to pick off one of the weaker BloodyElbow guys and redeem ourselves against them!
