ShavingRyansPrivates - TTT for Evan to someday make the UFC HOF...

 "the UFC HOF"......

Quite possibly the best idea I've heard all day.  How do we even begin to make this happen, any ideas?

I saw the thread with Evan's name on it and I immediately had a sense of anxiety in my stomach.  Such a shame what happened.  Evan had something special about him that attracted the interest of so many, myself included.

RIP.

Every time an Evan Tanner thread is bumped I feel a little sad, a little nostalgic, but most of all I feel inspired.

Thanks for everything. Phone Post

Believe: It's really quite a triumph, just his personal impact on me. He brought so many people together, changed lives, and showed the kind of heart that only a true warrior poet could display in the cage. He was open about his demons to us as fans, and actually took the time to talk us as individuals. I know, it's one of the most terribly hokey things, but when he seemed to be swinging in the wrong direction with his alcoholism, I would write him little poems about how, being such a public and well-loved figure, that even his failures help light the way out of the dark for those daring enough to dream, and every single one, I would get a thank you, or a question about a line, or he would ask if he could use a line or two in his blog. We exchanged a lot of emails back in the Myspace days, and we talked a lot about drinking and how it affected our personal and professional lives.

I can say with certainty that if I had missed those golden moments, I would at best still be a hopeless drunk, but it's been nearly two full years. When I'm tempted, or hurt, or lonely, or depressed, I don't count my clean days or close my eyes and wait for the feeling to pass just to be able to continue to tell the ones I love that I have yet to falter. Every time I ride out the temptation, a consciously give credence to a man whose hand I never shook and whose voice I never heard speak my name. I cannot go so far as to say my abstinence is in total my honoring the man's spirit, but upon reflection, I consider my continuing to try, a fleeting monument to a man that personally made it known that he believed in me. Haha, he said, if you can still believe in me , I'll always believe in you.

A small part of that fire still burns within me, I'm a better man for it, and I'm not alone.

Miss you Evan
