You know I was thinking about all this MMA vs. TMA stuff that is popping back up here on MT (again :rolleyes:) and how tired of it I am getting of it and then I realized maybe just maybe I am jumping to conclusions and it is not about Mixed Martial Arts vs. Traditional Martial arts so I went to see if there were any other meanings for those acronyms and there are so my apologies to those that posted MMA vs. TMA posts and you were actually talking about

“Mobile Marketing Association vs. Turnaround Management Association” or “Metropolitan Museum of Art vs. Tampa Museum of Art” or possibly the RSBD vs. MMA “REM (Rapid Eye Movement) Sleep Behavior Disorder vs. Monorail Manufacturers Association” or any of the other possible combinations listed below.

So as to cut down on the confusion and avoid unnecessary flames to any further MMA vs. TMA post it might help if you spell it out first.

Really Beautiful Salsa Dancers win every time, though.

That's ok...but do you mind if I call you Bruce? :D

Oh and I now feel that CMA is my FAR inferior to MMA… Of course I am talking the Cleveland Museum of Art vs. Metropolitan Museum of Art. As a Matter of fact MMA is by far superior to anything TMA has to offer. But again I am talkig about the Tampa Museum of Art :D
