Mayweather vs. McGregor, not Boxing vs. MMA

 

Forget, for a minute, all the hype. All the trash talking, all the money, the cars, the show. These days in MMA and boxing hype is what sells a fight. But it’s not what makes the fighter. Strip all that away and you’ll see what martial arts is all about.

Forget all the analysts. Well, almost all. Brendan Schaub is the only one who has looked at this fight through the prism of rationality since before the fight was real. For the most part, analysts have dug trenches around their prospective camps. Boxing on one side and MMA on the other.

This fight is about neither one. Any fight is, regardless of discipline or rule sets, only about the two combatants on that day, on that moment. That’s it. It’s not MMA versus Boxing. It’s Conor against Floyd.

Only by stripping away all the PR glitter will you then be able to see clearly the true lessons that fighting can teach you, regardless of the outcome. I’ve shared a great, short video that does just that. Yes, it’s a Conor video. Yes, I’m biased towards MMA and Irish fighters. But it illustrates a priceless lesson that can be applied to anything in life. Although fighting, especially MMA will tattoo it on your soul.

And my prediction for the fight of the century? Conor will knock him out in the second round. I won’t bore you with the details of that conclusion, instead check out the video and replace fighting with whatever it is you want to accomplish.

New Dog eat Doug Halloween T-Shirts

I’m still new to the t-shirt game and I’ve missed creating designs for a few holidays here and there but I certainly wasn’t going to miss out on Halloween. Here’s a few, some are Dog eat Doug inspired and some are for fun.

Halloween T-shirtThis is my favorite. Simple and cute. Looks a little Peanut-ish, don’t you think?

Patch the Pumpkin is from a Halloween story I wrote a while back. Hopefully I’ll get around to finishing that book. I’ve always loved this little guy.

This design was just because I wanted one. I thought it would be a little funny to say “Happy Holiday” at Halloween. That and who doesn’t love a skeleton in a giant, flowery hat?

One for my fellow Irish.

Halloween T-shirt

Same as the first shirt, but sans moon. I like them both. Maybe I should do one with Sophie carrying a bone? Not sure how I didn’t think of that before now.

Click here if you would like to see all the Dog eat Doug shirts available on Amazon.  Hopefully soon they will add the ability to have a separate storefront. For now, I’m thrilled with the quality of the shirts and how easy it is for people to order them at Amazon. Only had on hiccup so far. If you do have any issues, or an idea you’d like to see on a t-shirt, drop me a line!
