- Broken right scapula
- Broken left wrist
- Broken right collar bone
- Collapsed right lung (15% collapsed)
So now what? Well he left the hospital today and goes back for surgery on his wrist Thursday.
So I asked him today on the phone, "Are you going to sell your 4 wheeler?" and he quickly answered "No". A man on a mission. He just wrecked it 2 months ago and got away with pretty bad bruises. Get back on that horse Tommy! We all hope you feel better.

So what does all this mean? I am definitely improving each time I go out. Putting this Jeep in major off camber situations, climbing over piles of rocks, trekking through the occasional mud hole, falling off in ruts, driving up and down steep hills, more than I ever had.

2-Fedor Emelianenko. MMA. Current Pride Fighting Heavy Weight Champion. Russian Samba Specialist. #1 in the world right now.
3-Urijah Faber. MMA. Current WEC Featherweight Champion. 20-1.
5-Evan Tanner. MMA. Self taught. Ruthless knees and elbows. Warrior spirit.
Evan wore many hats during his brief life. A baker, cable tv installer, ditch digger, slaughter house worker, an MMA champion and a million more. He was 37 when he was found dead 2 miles from his campsite on September 8. He went deep into the desert when his motorcycle ran out of gas 100 miles from any town. 112 degree heat took its toll on his body and he collapsed until he was found by a helicopter.
This guy lead his life the way he wanted to. He was well respected and liked in and out of the fighting community. He thought of himself as a poet, a philosopher. He was a humble man until he stepped in the ring. This is one of the first major losses MMA has had in the recent past. RIP Evan Tanner. 1971-2008.
Phil Baroni I & II
I personally have seen ever one of these fights and will always consider Evan to be one of the greatest "self taught" fighters ever.

Just in case your feeling down today.
Freaky web stuff
Armstrong has a VO2 max of 83.8 mL/kg/min, much higher than the average person (40-50), but not as high as that of some other elite cyclists, such as Miguel Indurain (88.0, although reports exist that Indurain tested at 92-94) or Greg LeMond (92.5). His heart is 30 percent larger than average; however, an enlarged heart is a common trait for many other athletes. He has a resting heart rate of 32-34 beats per minute (bpm) with a maximum heart rate of 201 bpm.

This will prove to be my hardest pre-season of record. I need to get quite a bit of flexibility back and my core strength will need to improve. I'll turn 37 this month and I'm starting to feel it in the morning. In fact just getting in and out of my Jeep has been wearing on my back. So its back to the chiropractor, no pun intended.

1. Elvis Presley-From his debut release 'That's All Right' onwards, Presley put sex into rock and roll. Country, gospel and blues, he took them all in his stride
2. Aretha Franklin-Said to have a four-octave range, soul star Franklin showed her prowess and power on hits such as 'Respect' and 'I Say a Little Prayer'
3. Frank Sinatra-Renowned for his perfect delivery and phrasing on classics 'My Way' and 'I've Got You Under My Skin'
4. Otis Redding-Fine versions of songs like 'Satisfaction', but loved for '(Sittin' on) The Dock of the Bay'
5. John Lennon-Not technically brilliant, but expressive. 'Imagine' is regularly voted one of the all-time great songs
6. Marvin Gaye-Shot dead by his father in 1984, the Motown star was said to have 'the voice of an angel trapped in a man'
7. Kurt Cobain-Not exactly a beautiful voice but his anguished cries on Nirvana hits such as 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' launched a rock revolution in the early 1990s
8. Robert Plant-As singer with Led Zeppelin, Plant and his feminine high register touched millions with 'Stairway to Heaven' and 'Immigrant Song'
9. Mick Jagger-Jagger's wicked rasp introduced Britons to rhythm and blues and is still going strong after more than 40 years
10. Jeff Buckley-Was barely known during his lifetime, but his only completed studio album is now a classic, especially his version of 'Hallelujah'
What about Bowie? Axle Rose? Freddie Mercury? Michael Jackson or Whitney Houston? In my opinion Kurt Cobain shouldn't make this list. Where's Billy Joel?
