Bas Rutten? Cradle? Why does Jeff Glover call it the Suzanne Somers?

I realized while writing this blog post, that most newer BJJ practitioners haver never heard of Suzanne Somers.  Well, to me I first heard of her way back in the 80s when she played Jack Tripper's brainless, blonde roommate in the provocatively popular 80's sitcom, Three's Company.

Years later she gained even more popularity being the face of the this amazing As Seen on TV piece of "fitness" equipment, the Thigh Master!

What does this have to do with Jiu Jitsu? Mmmm not a whole lot other than an 80s/90's pop culture reference. Although, it could be Jiu Jitsu's long lost secret to incredible closed guard retention. Anyway, check out the video below and it'll all be clear.
