Nah, man. My arms ain't long enough to hit nothin'. Too many hammers; I would get nailed. And they IZ a lot of cheaters ou there. **

Only long enough to discover I'm no boxer. I'm reasonably good with a ball bat to the knees though.

All the time. Seems as if I'm not in the process of moving myself, I'm helping someone else move. Lots of boxing things up involved.

What a stupid question. I'm pretty sure everyone has had to pack their stuff in boxes for a move.

Yup! Nanny Duver used to make us box as part of gym class in the upper floor attic of the old Manual Junior High Building on 9th Street (where the Douglas County Bank building is located). Seems to me that I was on the loosing end of most of these encounters, fortunately, the gloves were very large.

I went to a Golden Gloves match in KC several years ago. Found that I did not like watching flying blood. Also scoring did not appear to be fair. Can't imagine what a bare knuckle fight was like. Much have been a bloody mess.

My dad was a Golden Gloves boxer in the 30's and he taught several of his children how to box. My brother was a boxer in the Marines. I loved to spar with both of them and would take on any age of competitor as a child. Loved to listen to the boxing matches on the radio and would anger my brother when I picked the winner. So long ago.

Not professionally, Was best amature for my weight class at the school yard though.

Did the sweet science, GG as a teenager. I had nice form and could pile up points but kept getting knocked on my butt. Then I found out about shotguns and hunting and that was the end of that.

I boxed GG in high school and enjoyed it a little. I fought a younger kid at the YMCA once, hit him pretty squarely and hurt him badly. I enjoyed the excercise, but didn't like the hurting of others. Seemed unfair as I was quick but not tough and quickness wins every time, especially with points.
