Better late than never

     Due to unforeseen complications, I was not able to post this week's podcast on time, but one day late is better than never. I want to be consistent on having weekly shows so I'm putting one out regardless of the slow week in MMA news.
     This week Ski and I talk about Bellator, Randy Couture's relationship with the UFC, "Showtime" Pettis' injury and we even make a mention of Lorenzo Lamas. Hope you enjoy, reply the the post or tweet me (@rolowankenobi) or Ski (@ski5163 with any suggestions for a show name.

The Great Return of the Bloggin Guatemalan

     After a year and a half hiatus from my beloved blog, I have made a return in an evolved form. Since my last post as the Bloggin Guatemalan, this chapĂ­n went on to write for North Lake College's News Register where I covered Soccer, Basketball, and Baseball. There I became the sports editor and received a chance to cover the Dallas Mavericks and the PGA tournament the HP Byron Nelson. In my time with the Register, I won two Texas Intercollegiate Press Association awards for best sports feature and best sports news story. I also won a first place Texas Community College Journalism Association award for best sports news.
     In the Fall of 2012, I transferred to the University of North Texas to complete my bachelor's degree in journalism where I had planned on joining the North Texas Daily and continue my writing career there. Unfortunately, due to my conflicting schedule, I was only able to write two articles for the Daily before I had to step away. Since then I have been inactive in both wring for a news paper and for my blog. I still watch MMA religiously, and it saddens me that i have not been able to share my opinion with my 12 followers.
     Well today I make my return along with the help of my old friend Brent "Ski" Crawford, we have recorded a podcast talking about MMA, we will attempt to make this a weekly occurrence and hopefully I can back in the swing of thing as far as posting on my blog. Enjoy the first edition of the Rolo and Ski show (show title is subject to change and open for suggestions)
