On July 18th, I will be 30 years old.
And if that wasn't bad enough, my daughter will be turning seven two days later.
It's a double whammy; my baby girl isn't a baby anymore and my life is half over.
I guess it's time to get rid of all the "kid" stuff I have. It's time to sell the Xbox 360, pull the insanely loud stereo out of my car, buy some Just for Men hair color, and start taking Centrum Silver.
What the heck am I saying?!
I'm still going to rock the faux hawk, make old people mad when I pull up next to them while listening to "Lost" by Gorilla Zoe, be one of those jerks you hate on Xbox Live, and completely not act my age.
But to celebrate my birthday—which for the last seven years has taken place at Chuck-E-Cheese or Build-A-Bear Workshop—I decided I'm going to play two rounds of golf tomorrow and compile a list of my most memorable MMA moments (if the title didn't already give that away).
But it's not all just about fights; it's just about MMA in general. It also includes life experiences.
So kick back, grab a frosty cold beverage, and take a look inside the mind of a madman.
