Here Come Cowboys

Sitting here Thursday night with the icepick quads (you know, when your quadriceps feel as if they've been stabbed with ice picks?) watching Heat/Pacers, and looking forward to another day on the mat tomorrow, it's been great to stoke my pre-Mundial fever with these promotional videos from Budo Videos, featuring Team Atos.

I loved seeing the one about Guillerme Mendes, who sometimes doesn't get the attention he deserves.  But this segment that features both Kyra Gracie and Mike Fowler, who left Gracie Barra and Team Lloyd Irvin, respectively, to represent Team Atos at the World Championships has the feel of something unique.

Ah, this jiu-jitsu.  It's hard to describe how much fun it is to be a part of something that is truly growing and dynamic.
