An Amazing Wrestler with a Great Story

OK, yes. I've got wrestling on the brain. Pretty soon I'll get some pictures up of things like Charis walking, Dietrich playing the piano, Anna and Emily cooking with Mommy, Norah squishing worms .... stuff like that.

But Anthony Robles is a pretty amazing guy with a pretty amazing story and people outside of wrestling should know about him, too.

And here's a video of one of his recent matches at the 2009 NCAA Championships. This was the only full match available (because of the controversy at the end, no doubt); but it's a great demonstration of his will, technique, sportsmanship ... everything.

Watch it in HQ and full screen!

Wow. What a story. I'll be watching for him. And a Pac 10 guy, too!

Awesome guy! I helped make a website for Brett Eastburn here in South Bend who has a similar story.

Do I need to be concerned that Jon can't spell Nora's name correctly?

That's incredible. JJ and I were pretty amazed.
