Doesn’t everyone wish he could fence?.....It is violence refined into beauty, it has associations with love, honor and suicidal pride. We think of great fencers-unlike great footballers or junk-bond salesman-as superior beings: air and fire, rather than earth and water. We think of Cyrano, Zorro and the Three Musketeers.

I am sitting in a Vegas hotel. I will be here all week.
There will be no fencing for me prior to the Divisional tournament.
I think in the initial seed I will be around 6th from the bottom.
All I can do is fight the good fight and try and have some fun.
