Well who does not love a good old-fashioned bar fight? Anybody have stories? Somehow I avoided them in my youth despite a lot of activity in bars and clubs. Angels maybe? The offseason drags on ...
They are best in the movies or on TV compared to the reality of course, for what you get out of it at best litigation even if you win. And then of course there is soreness or injury.
I'm well old enough now to know better than to even get close to this kind of situation though last summer on my job was well close to a few such situations. And no it was not work in a bar, which is dangerous enough. Mercifully no blows were exchanged just a lot of hot air directed at me or others working with me. I happened to have been on break when a fight did break out with some colleagues, and of course I would have helped.
Well this tale from two weeks ago has made its rounds. Judge for yourself. The football players no doubt had it coming and had done this before.
Notice also the weight difference but the football players still got their butts kicked, and for the critics out there on the side of the bullies, the football players, yes the guys they provoked sure did show restraint because without it and their superior skills, this ends in permanent disability or death.
Skills beat physical advantages almost every time.
An elbow or knee to the face or body is also more effective than a typical punch when somebody without skills lets you get that close or tries to close the distance with you, and there you have it the first strike.
And I tried to find a clip without an ad at the beginning, but this is the best I could do plus it has subtitles.
