Happy Indian Independance Day! Great crowd at the celebration in Jersey City. Huge honor to have Udayji Deshpande of the Vishwa Mallakhamb Federation in Mumbai visiting and giving the play by play (slight correction, it should be "representing The USA". I don't hold a candle to the amazing dudes repping India). Great job by all the performers, mallakhamb kids and coaches from the Mallakhamb Federation USA.
So in honor of the day I brought my F-game. Man, I was set on laboring through and hitting that bhajrangi hold if it was the last thing I did. And my right calf didn't work for 2 days after. It was messy, but it got done.
Listen up boys and girls, this is what happens when you don't practice and expect a good showing. Put in the work! Be ready to answer the call! Third motivational statement!
As much as I loved seeing Allen Iverson teleport across the court, I couldn't help but remember him dismissively saying, "We're talking about practice man. What are we talking about? Practice? We're talking about practice, man." Yeah! We ARE talking about PRACTICE!.. Man.
AI was thrilling though.
And that moon though.
