Carlin Yetts reports from San Francisco's WWB III wrestling tournament: part 2

You may remember Carlin Yetts as our 700th Facebook fan. Carlin is a wrestler from Columbus, Ohio, and in part to prepare for Gay Games 9 in nearby Cleveland+Akron, he has launched a new LGBT wrestling club in his town. 

He's now in San Francisco for the third WWB wrestling tournament hosted by Golden Gate Wrestling Club, and will be reporting on his experiences there for the Gay Games blog. 

Here's his second installment:

It's my second day in San Francisco. After Eddie made me some awesome oatmeal for breakfast, Roger and I went to Berkeley Bowl. It looks like the North Market in Columbus on steroids. Then after dropping off the groceries, Roger took me
to Muir Woods National Monument. To see these trees is amazing. Just gigantic redwoods towering over you... all you can do is go "wow". As we were walking through the park trading wrestling stories of past wrestlers, coaching experiences, and our own wrestling triumphs and disappointments, I realized how fortunate I was to be able to share and hear stories from such a great man as Roger.

Back in the car we got a bite to eat then headed across the Golden Gate Bridge to San Francisco, where I was able to take in some of the amazing sights.
