I Got Love

You know how when you love someone and you’re away from them, every little thing can make you think about them, it’s like you see them everywhere?  Yeah, that’s how it is with me and Jiu-Jitsu.  There are the obvious things like when I recently caught the end of the first Lethal Weapon and yelled “Holy crap! Mel Gibson just triangled Gary Busey!”. I knew Mel Gibson trained BJJ, but it had been a long time since I’d seen that movie, and I didn’t realize Jiu-Jitsu was actually in it. It’s kind of a shame that both Mel and Gary are bat-shit crazy now, but I don’t think Jiu-Jitsu had anything to do with it.

Armbar AleThen there are the times I see Jiu-Jitsu when it’s not even there. A couple of weeks ago on Facebook someone had written “Have you checked out…”, and my Jiu-Jitsu obsessed brain read it as “Have you choked out…”. The comment became much less interesting to me when I realized what it actually said. I was also at the grocery store recently and I saw some “Ambar Ale”, and I swear I thought it said “Armbar Ale”. I rarely drink, but I can guarantee I would have bought some Armbar Ale!

We have a street in Lincoln called “Gracie Avenue”, and when I drove by it, I thought “I should climb up on that sign and RNC it!” I mean, really, when else am I ever going to be able to choke a Gracie?! I think I might just move to Gracie Ave., line my driveway with mats, have a projector playing Jiu-Jitsu videos on the side of the house, stock up on Armbar Ale, and have the best Jiu-Jitsu block party EVER! I can hear the music playing now…

“I got love – I, got, love, for, my homies who be rollin’ wit me
Play no games – play, no, games, cause, ain’t nobody playin’ wit me…”
