MMA

It's the last Sunday of the NFL regular season and there's a gambit of matters to address before I return to the easy chair and some pigskin action. We're burning daylight so let's kick this thing off..... 

 I paid $60 for the UFC PPV Saturday night and it was money well spent. No buyer's remorse whatsoever.

Quick one...trying to write before tipoff of nWo Heat vs. Mavs...

UFC 131 from Vancouver was a solid show and worth my $54.95. Much better event than UFC 130.

Vancouver crowd was emotionally invested but for some reason they weren't mic'ed well because the natural sound in the arena did not come through consistently at home.

It's the first Sunday w/o football of some sort and I'm Jonseing. With that said, it's kickoff time.

Our FREE HOT BBQ Sauce offer ends at midnight tonight (Sunday). This one is simple: order any TWO packages from our store (packages start as low as $7.88 each) and we will include in your order a FREE bottle of JR's awesome, HOT BBQ Sauce, a FREE Koozie, and a FREE piece of autographed swag. 

We appreciate everyone's business and remember that you have to order any TWO packages you choose to qualify for all the FREEBIES. 

It's late...I'm still wired from UFC 124...so what the hell...here's some thoughts from a fan...that will likely be twisted like a pretzel on MMA message boards because I'm 'that wrestling guy.'   

I enjoyed the PPV and felt that I got my monies worth. That is and should always be the bottom line of purchasing any PPV. UFC 124 delivered in the Octagon which is where UFC begins and ends. 

Here's hoping that everyone is having a great weekend as it is another hot and beautiful day in Norman, Oklahoma. We're 6 days away from kickoff with the Sooners opening the season at home against Utah State at the stadium which is 3 miles from our home.    

Yours truly watched the UFC 118 fights on Spike and then the PPV all emanating from Boston and here are some random thoughts:

Overall I would give the PPV an average grade. While most of the fights looked good on paper, the execution of some of the bouts was lacking.

Our thanks for those of you that have placed orders on our site. The case price offer that includes, among other items, a FREE $20 JR's T Shirt, is still in effect. Simply go to our store, order a case and we will make sure you get a FREE shirt. Plus, FREE shipping in the USA.  Or you can try out products with a 3 pack sampler.

Thanks for checking out the site. I will be writing a blog later today, if time permits, addressing my trip to Charlotte this week to attend the NWA Legends Fanfest. We're also looking for more orders in our on line store so if you're running low on sauces, ketchup or jerky we're ready to accept and to ship your orders tomorrow. If you've procrastinated about ordering, I hope that you will break down and give us a shot.  

Happy 4th of July!  Be safe and enjoy the holiday. Here some BBQ'ed random thoughts of our Las Vegas trip.

Wife Jan and I have had a great few days in Vegas highlighted by seeing old friends and enjoying the phenomenal UFC PPV Saturday night.

The total UFC experience was awesome. UFC officials were so gracious and hospitable to us. A total class organization. Our seats...front row for me...2nd row for Jan right behind me were unreal.

Huge day at JR's Family BBQ where we had a "wait" for most of the evening with many OU fans in town for the Sooners vs. Texas hoops game Saturday afternoon. Big win for Jeff Capel's crew on an emotional day as the late, great hoopster Waymon Tisdale was honored today. Waymon, who was a star at OU in the 80's and played for years in the NBA, died last year of cancer after having his leg amputated in his fight with bone cancer. When Waymon was a high school player at Tulsa's Booker T. Washington High School I had the privilege of officiating a few  of his games. Awesome guy...

Just a reminder that if you place an on line order today that we'll ship it Monday and you can help us set a significant January sales record.

Strike Force was a fun show to watch on a cold, Oklahoma night. Good, straight forward show w/o too many frills but plenty of unpredictability.
