Now, this win was particularly sweet for me for three reasons (beyond the fact that it's another win over Lames).
- Two of ISU's best wrestlers, Travis and Trent Paulson, are twin brothers who went to elementary school with my brother. They were jackasses then. I'm assuming they're jackasses now. After all, they go to Lames. Well, Mark Perry came from 4-1 down to beat Travis Paulson at 165, and redshirt freshman Ryan Morningstar beat #1 ranked Tyler Paulson 3-2 in the last match of the night at 157. And, by the way, if you look for a picture of Ryan Morningstar on Google, the first three hits are 4-H hog show pictures from 6 years ago. Priceless.
- The Greatness That is Cael Sanderson is the coach, and he got absolutely spanked by Brands. I swear, if I have to hear one more yokel talk about The Greatness That is Cael Sanderson, I'm gonna bust out the cross-face chicken wing on his overall-wearing ass.
- Well, OK, part of it is the fact that it's Iowa State. I hate those bastards.
