The Freak Fights – A Night of Live Local Boxing

Well Saturday night was the night that i watched a 45 year man make his pro debut in a boxing match.  You may have read a tale or two of the Freak when I was tracking his eating adventure in the Wing Bowl this past Feb.  CLICK HERE TO SEE THAT TALE.  Frankie feels like a local celeb and if you heard the two hundred people at the event on Saturday you would have trouble not believing that.  FREAK FREAK FREAK the crowd chanted as he made his way to the ring.  You could tell he was a bit nervous going into the fight but he managed to get through that.  The Freak stood in his corner swaying with that anxious movement that looks like you’re trying hula hoop.  DING DING the bell rang and these two men ran into each other like two rams going at it on a mountain side.  Holy Christ!!!!!Continue Reading

Relax It’s Sunday

It’s like 3 O’Clock in the afternoon and I am just getting to this.  I wish I could feel my face.  So as it goes, I drank a bit last night.  Wait before you start to judge me I did attend a Fancy Ball.  That’s right I am a bit sophisticated.  We got to see some awesome friends, the governor, and had us a great time.  We left after the social and dinner so we could bar hop a bit.  For all those parents out their having a night with no kids is F@#$ing amazing.  Sorry I love my kids but damn they are needy little humans.  Here is a look back at another great week.Continue Reading
