It's Wednesday about 4am and I am just thinking about what this day is going to be like. It feels like I have known both LB200 and Shawty forever. When I first learned they hadn't met I was stunned, with LB200 doing clash and fests and Shawty traveling I thought for sure their schedule would of lined up. My thoughts also turn to how I am different with both, Shawty definitely brings out my younger side and reminds me that I need to take a break every now and then and enjoy life. LB200 brings out the more mature side of me. IF you have ever met LB200 you know he is a wonderful human being, he pushes me to be better friend and a even better person.
I guess this is where I mention that I may of over packed for this trip. This point was made when the Uber driver came to pick Shawty and I up and take us to the airport. I think he was surprised that we were able to fit everything in his car. I really enjoy traveling because I break out some of the Norwegian slang that's popular for North Dakota. Its not everyday you get someone in your car who uses words like "uffdah" or "Don'cha know" . I think the driver most enjoyed the fact I referred to Shawty as a twerp. My trip to Fayetteville had gone so well that I was now sure that something bad was going to happen in ATL. I am not a very lucky person, so when something good happens I expect a bad thing to balance it out.
Short plane ride later and a jaunt across the Atlanta airport Shawty and I reached the meeting point where LB200 was waiting for us. Man how I had missed him, its been just over a year since we last met up. Now I am going to brag a bit here about LB200 because what he can do is amazing. I had never been racked or lifted in a bear hug before, and then I met this slim dude who walked me around a ring with ease in both holds. I still chuckle at what he told me when we first met. He mentioned that he only felt comfortable walking around the ring with guys under 230 pounds. Somehow though he walked my 270 pounds around with ease and even gave me an airplane spin. I will admit I was so looking forward to being racked again, the image of him racking me is still one of my favorites. I was also looking forward to testing my ability to with stand his scissor holds.
Upon reaching the hotel Shawty split from us for the time and went to his room. LB and I have years of experience tearing a bed down so within fifteen minutes our room was ready to wrestle We started off with some light sub and trading holds It was a nice warm up for our three way that happened once Shawty showed up. We had so much fun switching in and out, I think the two of them enjoyed double teaming me the most. Looking back on this, the meeting could not have gone any better. If you ask LB and Shawty they will tell you I haven't met a stranger I don't know lol.
Wednesday was an amazing day. spent with some terrific friends. It was this point that my thinking on clash flipped some, I was going to go into the event and have as much fun as I possibly could.
Thursday was going to be a big day, I just didnt know how big . . . . .
