Hello America, Sorry for the delay on things but I been super busy so much stuff is going on but you know I couldn't forget my favorite fans I love ya! things here has been OK. We live in a big big place called the Olympic Village that's were all the country that competing in the games live and it is beautiful the people that built all this stuff really did a great job! We have a lot of security here so it's safe around here and there very strict about certain things but there cool. We have a laundry room, a game room were every one of all types of country hangs at; how cool is that and we have "The Danger Zone" I call it. The danger zone is were all the food is and the grand slam they have an 24 hour McDonald's"Fat Land"I can't stay out of that place it's awesome.I'm meeting a lot of people here even though I get mob by people every day because they thinks I'm Lebron James is crazy but is fun and funny.Here is some pic of the Village.

Hey America were finally here,were in china the moment,the excitement,the hype we all been train so hard and waiting for. We were the first American team of all sports to arrive in Beijing. Once we got there it was off to the game plan to be the best in shape in the games which no question ask we are; Training,training and training that's all been on our schedule. It is so hard been an elite athlete,been on top of your sport and staying fit its so much an Olympian go through beside the wonderful people you meet--the training all so many times a day, the studying films,the job some still have to get to pay for other thing, the schooling and education we still try to get beyond the hours of training,the different people and situation we encounter upon and the hardest of all the love ones you have to leave behind especially our children; the main reason against other reason we try and work so hard for; but in the end when your on your knees and tears is at a constant flow down your face and heart is pounding so fast as if it's about to come out your chest;you sit back and think and say to yourself "it was all worth it"! These are thing that is going to go through my head as well"It was all worth it"and then finding myself with the biggest cool aid smile ever been made while saying "Thank you GOD and I love you!--"GOLD MEDAL BABY GOLD MEDAL"

Hey! ladies and gentlemen Boys and girls I'm back your one an only Big D!I got the chance to see what it was like living as an Argentinian and it was alright! Myself and the other Olympian Boxers had a blast of fun. We got to experience an see other Olympic sports train and see their Olympic Training Center which is Known as the "Cenard". Even though we were far away from home we don't worry about the different types of food because I brought home to Argentina; coming from Alabama and all, lucky I'm a great cook and know what it takes to prepare a meal.On one of the nights spent in Argentina I cooked Fried Chicken,Home made Macaroni And Cheese,Sweet Cream Corn and for dessert a Big Chocolate Brownie Pie; it was yummy in our tummies boy I tell you! All the guys ate it all up they knew I could cook but, they didn't know I could get down like that! they complimented me all that night and the next day as well. . We trained and sparred with the Argentina Boxers; We enjoyed each others company and different ways of training and at the last day of seeing those guys, they wanted to trade some of their stuff for ours; so we did; they were so happy. I think we made new friends.
