Why is a rabbit the icon of Easter? Shouldn’t it be Baby Jesus instead? During Easter, little kids can chase Baby Jesus as it lays colorful eggs all across the backyard. We can eat chocolate effigies of Baby Jesus while painting eggs. If Baby Jesus could lay eggs, then he must be a reptile. That means the Florida Gators is the most holy school in the NCAA. If Baby Jesus were a reptile, Leonardo from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles could be his cousin.
Ah damn. It’s St. David’s Day, not Easter. The Baby Jesus/Reptile analogy still applies, however. Pat Healy strikes me as a guy that is all too familiar with David Icke’s notion that the planet is controlled by shape-shifting reptilians. If that truly is the case, I still can’t imagine that revelation coming between Pat Healy and his opponent at Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey, the undefeated (in Strikeforce) Caros Fodor. Healy is focused, so it shouldn’t surprise you that he spent some time in an isolation tank getting prepped for this weekend’s bout. Check out what he told TapouT radio this week.
“It’s like mental training. You know, it’s great for your recovery. You’re in that isolation tank, and you’re floating in epsom salts, so there’s zero gravity on your body. It recoups your body and mind, lets you focus. After you’ve been doing it for a while, you get some pretty wild effects. Every time is a little bit different. Sometimes it’s visualization, and sometimes ideas just hit you. You tap into that infinite knowledge of the universe. It’s extremely effective for me, and at the very worst, you’re coming out of there with a relaxed mind and body, and that’s pretty good in itself.”
I used to tell my friend humankind’s entire existence is just a preparation for another dimension and when we die, we just transition to another realm of being. That’s a pretty friggin’ deep sentence to read on a Thursday afternoon. My bad. Didn’t mean to make your brain melt out of your ears before Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey comes on this Saturday on Showtime.
