The Theba Thing: Women who like MMA

The Theba Thing: Women who like MMA

"The Theba Thing" is about stepping out of my comfort zone, meeting new people and trying the things that have been on my mind and heart.

I have watched Mixed Martial Arts for years now.  How did this happen?  Well, I was channel surfing one night and caught two men in this cage-like thing - called The Octagon - not just boxing; but kicking, wrestling and engaged in all of these other creative and amazing maneuvers.  I’m sure my interest to stop on this channel also had something to do with these incredibly-built, bare-chested men. I’m not going to lie.  
 


Nevertheless, I was amazed by the sport itself, because it’s so action packed. You couldn't count anyone out.  A guy could be taller or smaller; have major muscles or look like he’s never lifted a barbell. You just never knew who was going to win with a punch, a submission, a kick, or a leg-lock.

One of the brightest moments of my professional life at Today's THV was when Joey The Garden Cat found his way into the Weather Garden.  It didn't take long to recognize he was a show stealer with his adorable antics, photogenic features and commanding attitude. 

The introduction of Facebook helped launch his popularity…not only in Arkansas but all over the world.  And then when Animal Planet featured him in a segment of "Must Love Cats" -- well, Joey's appeal became electric and his fans demanded more.

So, as his primary caretaker I took on the role of Momma/Agent and what a treat it is to hear from and interact with his fans.

For a little girl, a room isn’t just a place to sleep. It’s the inside of her castle. It’s the center of her dance studio. It’s the place where all of her Barbie dolls live.
