Grappling isn't a sport where you get paid a ton of cash but if you're good enough one might be able to live on the revenue. The best in the world win international tournaments with some of cash prizes varying from $3,000 to $50,000. In addition to winning tournaments, a top level grappler could get hired by MMA training camps and/or organizations or open their own gyms and charge regular joes a monthly fee to learn.

I, of course, don't compete at such a high level yet. I'm a full time student and a part-time radiologist and pilot. I came close to going to the olympics years ago in Judo though.


What would you possibly be going to school for full time is you were practicing any way as a radiologist? Being a radiologist requires a medical degree.

You know what sport the hurricanes play right?


You mean the Carolina Hurricanes who are on an epic losing streak? Not quite two years, but it sure feels like it.

Kickball is tons of fun. For those that take your rec sports slightly more seriously, I reccomend the Panthers flag football tournament. Nothing like catching a TD pass in BoA Stadium then watching a replay of yourself on the video boards.


went last year to watch.. put together a team but ended up moving. was really hoping to make that happen at one point.

I'm a Technician, not a full Radiologist. It's something to fall back on and earn money while working through school.

Gotcha...good field.

I was just asking because my wife's sister got a PhD in Biochemical Research. Then quickly decided she did not want to work in a lab....like she could not have decided that earlier.

She went back to school and got a teaching degree to become a HS Teacher.

10 years of out of state tuition to make peanuts....not a high return on investment.

But she loves it and is a fantastic teacher.

She's following her passion. I can't blame her but yeah I can see your point. The education field isn't particularly blooming with potential and benefits. I, myself, am not the 'settling' type. I can't be at a desk from 9-5 for the rest of my life. I don't care how much money is offered to me.

Down in Tega Cay. There are teams here that take it way to serious. Part of the reason we have only won one game is because our priorities are
1) Beer
2) Night away from kids
3) kickball


my favorite moment from last spring was when we played the top team in the league and we got a quick 4-0 lead on them through like 3 innings. I was pitching and just to have, I pitched one ball between my leg and the dude at the plate just let it roll by then death stared me lol. i didn't give a fug, i knew we were going to lose eventually
