Oblique Injury

🙁

Had a decent injury yesterday while climbing. My oblique was already hurting a little bit from being strained. I could feel it improving though and it was probably ~1 week or so from being all the way healed. I decided to do the ‘smart’ thing and work out on it.

Near the top of the climb, I popped my muscle and I felt it spasm. Today I can’t even do a push up or a pull up. My side feels very sore and it hurts to move.

From reading on a few basic sites (http://orthopedics.about.com/cs/sprainsstrains/a/abdominal.htm), I’m probably in the Grade II. I hope that it will recover and be near 100%.

Not really sure what else to do for workout. My finger is still hurting, so maybe it’ll be good to rest my entire body. Once I can do some cardio I’ll probably do that. Pissed off all around though 🙁

Other than that, not too much else to say. I may have a gaming opportunity in the very near future and will discuss it when the time comes.

Possible Good News with Poker in the U.S.? (and other stuff)

Breaking news today:

Today has already been labeled ‘Green Tuesday’ if the above is true. If FTP does in fact release money to U.S. players, it would be a huge step in the right direction for online gaming in the U.S. If the Department of Justice signs off on it, we might even see some regulated online poker gambling in the U.S. in the future.

Twitter/2+2/etc are all blowing up right now. There is a ton of information still coming though, so we’ll see where this takes us.

Cool video-

I also got a chance to watch ‘The Raid’, an Asian movie that is pretty much pure action. It was a fun watch and I enjoyed it:

Deep in the heart of Jakarta’s slums lies an impenetrable safe house for the world’s most dangerous killers and gangsters. Until now, the rundown apartment block has been considered untouchable to even the bravest of police. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite swat team is tasked with raiding the safe house in order to take down the notorious drug lord that runs it. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the drug lord, the building’s lights are cut and all the exits blocked. Stranded on the 6th floor with no way out, the unit must fight their way through the city’s worst to survive their mission. Director Gareth Evans (Merantau) and rising martial arts star Iko Uwais reunite in this adrenaline-fueled action film.

GL to all my fellow poker players…hope this deal goes through.

-Perhaps Korea later on in the fall?

Greek Fight night is having an event at the end of this month. GFN is an open boxing event for amateurs only. I’m desperately trying to get my friend in it. A few years ago he fought at one of the events with zero experience and four days to train. The entire thing was hilarious.

Two climbing videos I like alot…this area in China looks sick-
