guillotine-grapevine-350The first official episode of the Guillotine Grapevine takes us to two local campuses in the Twin Cities as we visit Augsburg College to meet with three-time Greco-Roman World Team member Jordan Holm to get a little bit of insight into the Minnesota Training Center and the performances of Storm athletes at the 2015 World Championships in Las Vegas.
Holm breaks down his own performance and identifies what he has to do to put himself in a position to make the Olympic Team in 2016 and win a medal. He also breaks down the performances of Andy Bisek and Bebeto Yewah, both Storm wrestlers who participated in the World Championships.

We then move across the river to the University of Minnesota and talk with four-time All-American Dylan Ness, who will be continuing his career on the senior level in Greco-Roman with the Storm. Ness breaks down what he had to do to separate himself from the comparisons to his older brother Jayson and why he’s picking Greco-Roman over freestyle.

Ness also looks back on his career at The U.

WORTHINGTON — Twin brothers Hser Eh and Hser Moo Pwae were 9 years old when they arrived in the United States. Life was very different in Burma, their native country, where a civil war had been raging. In America, they needed to learn English. They needed to make friends. They needed to find a way to fit in.

“It was hard,” said Hser Moo. “We didn’t know the language. Especially school. School was hard. The way we made friends was being involved with sports. That’s how we made friends.” Continue reading at

When is last time you took a risk?

When is the last time you truly evaluated your life? It’s often a terrible thing in life to wait until you’re ready. There’s really no such thing as ready. There’s just NOW. With this being said, I’m excited about a plan that gives you inward significance. I wish more than only 40 people would see this. I want to shout it out to the world! If you happen to read this, pass it to someone you care about. Here’s why – Goals add meaning to your life and ensures that your spirit and sense of purpose remain healthy and in some cases, alive. It’s spiritual suicide having no goals. Goals are a blueprint for growth, achievement and conquering your desires. Goals give your day value, structure, and purpose.

McKee’s goals are much higher now than they were when he invited his friend over for a weekend play date, but big goals always have to start small. Continue reading »
