Pan Ams Sunday Results, sloppy report. Written at the event trying to do some kinf of play by play with six mats going on simultaneously. Just because we love you. Pan Ams Sunday Results Well, apparently i didn’t resolve my registration problem in time (didn’t show up to the event until Sunday) and the cut off for fixing these things and paying was Friday at 6:00PM. I feel a bit better in that they enforced the policy across the board, apparently several brazilians traveled from Brazil and were denied entrance. I feel a little bit worse in that Papa John came up to me and said that the brown belt medium (my division) would be the division to watch. I feel way worse that Scotty went out and partied his ass off last night (as of right now no one is sure where he is) while I went to bed early for a change. I have a nice seat in the stands dead center to the mats, so I’m going to do as much of a play by play of the matches I possibly can. My brackets are a little less complete than what is actually happening, so if there is a ???? I’ll try to go back to fill the blanks later.
