Team Modafferi has started

Posted by koolpaw on October 22, 2008

Dear Evan, u were right. We laughed at and worry about ur Team Tanner when we have heard about it at first. and thought’ “how come he doesnt get Sponsors? it wont work”. but now fightlinker and Jackals started smae thing reffering ur original idea with A LOT of respects  for u and ur Team Tanner.

Team Modafferi – Blue 

Team Modafferi — Sand

Roxanne Modafferi, everyone’s favorite female MMA warrior is taking a direct approach to sponsorship. Like Evan Tanner, our goal is to be able to support Roxy’s endeavor to become the #1 pound for pound female fighter by direct contributions from fans. Fightlinker Store invites you to support her by buying a “Team Modafferi” shirt. 100% of the profits go directly to Roxy, so buy as many as you can and offer them to friends, family, and someone you’re dating (nothing like supporting a good cause to get you laid, fella!)

タナー自身の身内や実際の友人以外で、ブログを通してもっとも熱心に「エヴァン・タナー」をおっかけていたおばかブログfightlinker。

タナーのグダグダな酔っ払いブログに突っ込みを入れ、あんまり現実的とは思えない「チーム・タナー」のコンセプトに対して「うむ・・・。まあ画期的だしすごい考えだとは思うけど・・・いいからとりあえず黙ってスポンサーさがせよ」と正論を吐き(結局チーム・タナーと並行してTUFを放映してるSpikeTVからスポンサーになってもらえた)、練習で少し身体つきがもとにもどってきたら手放しで喜び、試合に負ければ悔しがり「風来坊なのはわかるけど、いいかげんひととこに腰おちつけていいトレーナーつけろよ」とまたも正論を吐きくさり、TUFフィナーレで復帰第二戦にまたも惜敗したタナーが「もうダメかも」と弱音を吐くとハラハラし、一端休養してまたあっちこっち旅にいくとなったら「うむ。クソ真面目に練習してるタナーはつまらんからな」とまったく逆のことを言い出し(笑)、なんだかんだとみんなでつっこんできた記録。・・・よう書いたなあ(爆)。

改装のときに過去のみんなのコメントきえちゃったのと、タナー自身の直のお仲間の判断か、サイトとSpikeTVのブログにあげられたタナーが撮影したアメリカの自然の写真や、長距離バスの運ちゃんが偶然タナーのファンでうれしそうに並んで撮った写真、そしてタナー自身の練習や飲んだくれによる(笑)身体の筋肉の変化とかを記録した写真がネットから消されてしまったのが残念。

Jimi Hendrix – All Along The Watchtower(Tanner used this Rock Classic for his entrance)

“There must be some way out of here,” said the joker to the thief,
“There’s too much confusion, I can’t get no relief.
Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth,
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth.”

“No reason to get excited,” the thief, he kindly spoke,
“There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke.
But you and I, we’ve been through that, and this is not our fate,
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late.”

All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.

Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl,
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl

by Bob Dylan

So he came to weigh-in with his beard

Posted by koolpaw on June 21, 2008

According to Sam Caplan ,

Tanner came out in sun glasses, a bandanna, and a crazy beard. He looked like Kimbo Slice.

lol so we will see the beard live this time?

“A beard in Vegas? What happened? You lose a bet?”
