Taking the Torch

Chris Sabin describes the honor of facing Team 3D in their retirement match, and Alex Shelley reveals a cheat day like none other.

Chris Sabin 

I had a great weekend.

The good times started Friday night with some live music. Australian Pink Floyd was playing in Connecticut and put on a very enjoyable show. Imagine a spot on cover band with a budget playing Pink Floyd. Awesome, right? The light show was pleasing to the eye and in the top center of the stage was a large screen playing visuals and videos with a Pink Floyd inspiration. We had great seats that were perfect to sit back, relax, and enjoy. Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to Roger Waters performs The Wall, which is also touring right now, but this was the next best thing. I highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Pink Floyd, or if you just have an open mind.

Saturday was the day of charging the batteries and getting ready for Sunday. Relaxing, stretching, and focusing on what I thought may be the most important match for the Motor City Machine Guns. And it was.

Sunday we battled Team 3D in their retirement match. They are tag team legends without a doubt, and it was a great honor for the Motor City Machine Guns to come out of that hard fought, bloody fight with the TNA team championship belts. I was watching Team 3D before I started training to wrestle just over 10 years ago. They have been everywhere, and done everything a tag team can do in the world of professional wrestling, and for them to pass the torch to us in such a way is the greatest honor a tag team can receive. 

Thank you Team 3D.

Eating disorders.

I'm pretty sure I have an eating disorder, but not entirely sure. Here's how it works: I diet pretty hard. Harder than most, I'd say. I'll literally have two meals that have no complex carbs in them. MAYBE beans, maybe fruit, but those are rare. Lots of green vegetables, lots of lean meats, lots of lean lipids. Lots of protein powder and water. I know that's not food, but whatever. Anyway, when I do take a bite out of something out of the ordinary, it's like a shark to blood. I mean, it could be anything. It could be fresh baked cookies, or it could be a dinner roll.

The real problem lies in the fact that once this happens, once my brain understands that I have access to foods I would never normally eat, it's on. However, due to doing way too much cardio and not eating carbs at all for such extended periods of time, I don't fill up. On the contrary. The other day, here's what I ate. Mind you, this was in a 14-hour period.

-loaf of dinner bread
-two chicken breasts covered in cheese and bacon
-a wedge salad
-a Reese's big cup
-a Coco Puffs king size cereal bar
- half a quart of ice cream
- 6 bowls of cereal
- a handful of almonds
- a row and a half of Oreo's
- a Chex cereal bar
- a quarter of a bag of Salt 'n Vinegar Chips
- a cup of yogurt
- a small fruit bowl
- a bagel
- 10 homemade oatmeal cookies
- 3 Hot Pockets Slapshot Cheeseburger rolls
- A pack of Pop Tarts
- some licorice
- some BBQ chips
- a Hot Pocket
- Jello Pudding Cup

I got sick of typing half way through that list.
