Quote Of The Day:    “In the actions of all men one judges by the result.”  Machiavelli

And I lost.  But, I take the following away from my fight.  This will be comments about same here at the blog so I can move on to the next adventure.

 

1.                  I give credit to Larry “The Poodle” Shelton for winning.

2.                  For those who thought I would chicken out or it wasn’t real – wrong.

3.                  I’m uninjured and unscathed.

4.                  I take pride that I took him down and nearly had his neck in a scissors hold.

5.                  You can’t announce such a thing before a fight because it exposes you, but I suffered a severe bone bruise in my knee.  (Dr. Colissimo said it would only get better if I stayed off it.  I’ve been limping for two months.  No serious running/cardio for two months.  And, try fighting on a leg in pain.  It sucked.)  Colissimo told me not to fight.

6.                  I lasted the fourth longest of the fourteen losers in all the bouts.  I got gassed and tapped out.

7.                  Remember the “Poodle” is 14 years younger and trained with a trainer and sparred etc.  (I only lifted weights, stretched and hit my heavy bag.)

8.                  The only person who can talk smack to me is Larry Shelton.  He earned it.

9.                  It was fun.  I was not scared.  It was an experience I’ll tell stories about forever.

10.              The police and their wives in the crowd behaved like juveniles.  You wonder why there is police misconduct?  Because behind a lot of those badges are jerks.  They showed it Saturday night.

11.              There are a lot of good police officers and they have my respect and they also understand humor a lot better than those who don’t.

12.              I’m going to heal my knee and keep training.  I love being in good shape.
