For some reason I believe ‘a couple of drinks’ to Tank Abbott means ‘absolutely paralytic’ for the average person. A ‘couple of drinks’ for Tank Abbott has the ability to destroy entire solar systems. Therefore when Tank Abbott told Sherdog Radio that each timed he penned his new book ‘Bar Brawler’ after a couple of drinks, we should admire his ability to be productive. Check out this excerpt from the radio interview in which Abbott also said that each fight in his book was ‘written metaphorically.’
I made sure I had a couple of drinks in me before I’d start taking pen to paper.
There could be 10,000 pages of fights if I was going on my memory, but … every fight in the book has a purpose and a meaning and it’s written very metaphorically,” Abbott said. “Everything has a purpose. It’s not just like a biography where someone says, ‘Oh, I was wrestling in high school and then I went to college and I dropped out because my girlfriend wouldn’t write papers anymore,’ that kind of stuff. … It’s not one of those things. It’s kind of like ‘Old Man and the Sea.’ It’s about finding your meaning in life and being lucky enough to live it.
Props to Tank Abbott comparing himself to Ernest Hemingway and then following it up with his book is about ‘finding your meaning in life.’ If Tank Abbott’s book was a thread on The Underground, consider me ‘in’ (followed of course by a hilarious ‘In’ .gif).
