Hey, forget it. I was coming from the one stereotype (which I incorrectly
attributed to you) thinking another stereotype (we MNF beer guys) was worse
or better. I could care less what specific sports you like/don't like and
I'm glad to hear that you have interests other than what's on this list.
Not enough of people like you, you know. Honestly, snakebites (beer and
cider together) taste much better than beer. But I'll drink a decent beer
(read: not Bud/MGD/etc.), too.

Back to Gundam, since MS limbs seem to have similar limitations in movement
to human limbs (not counting the alien looking ones) why aren't more martial
arts type moves displayed in the series? I mean during times when a MS is
out of ammo or it is too close to use its main weapon, etc. and it's on the
ground? I'd think some sort of heat saber parry/wrist throw to the ground/
saber to the back attack might work.
