Well, actually, yes, sort of. This happens to be that one slightly frustrating friend most of us have who's a great guy but is willing to work just a little harder than you in school, sports, etc. and the long term results show. Even his house is slightly more upscale and better decorated than mine, I've got the city/mountain view but natch he's got the ocean view, I've got two awesome kids, he's got three, I went to fairly elite university, he went to ever-so slightly eliter university, I've lived in various cool US cities, he's lived in various cooler European cities ... it gets a touch maddening at times but samo be used to it by now so no worries.
I suspect however what plonden found frightening was not the prospect of a smarter/stronger samo, but the implication that brains and NBA-smarts are not enough to handle business in the Octagon (imho creativity, deviation, and luck are the actual keys).
@ thelimey, yeah no doubt its been a good run. I' am however sufficiently intrigued by the RB declaration of an annual "samo watch" involving outrageous diva-like demands, interviews while idling my beater pick-up, and major cable sports networks filling their slow-season airtime with slightly irritated Favre-like conjecture that if I somehow manage to run the gauntlet of this ridiculously stacked First Division Roto and finish Top 3 ... well ... let's just say I'm keeping a close eye on Bret and taking notes oh yeah.
