I think I will never learn to appreciate those kind of sports I think.
I don't get the point of kicking the s**t out of somebody, really.  :Confused:

The quotes are very good tho  :)~.


Haha; I feel ya' bro'. It's not a sport for everyone, to each their own.

It's funny; most members on the boxing forum I am on think tennis is gay and tedious; it seems on here most think very little of boxing or combat sports in general and view it as some form of barbarism.

I must be the only one who loves both sports, and only these 2 sports, because of the similarities I see in each one that are required to be a great champion: great footwork, speed, fantastic conditioning, timing and above all mentality and the will to survive and thrive. I am a weird one though so whateva' :)) I love chess; and tennis and boxing, when at their highest levels, are frantic, frenetic chess matches that require mind over matter. My Truth :cool:

No, no, Pacer also loves boxing as much as I hate it. I just don't get it. Oh well.

I do like chess although find it to be very time consuming but should play at least one time with MT. I also love Cricket but gotta admit, don't get to watch as much because the sport is so unknown to North American people. It's a beautiful game and very stylish too. I love any card games and I like to think I am very good at it too.

Couldn't Brad Gilbert-ian tactics be used in boxing as well as tennis?  Fighting a bout to your strengths and your opponents weaknesses?  Avoiding an opponents real strength or something?  Like a right hook?

Alot of fighters do do that; watching alot of tape on an opponent and working on a gameplan during training camp to capitalize on an opponents weaknesses. Some fighters, like a Floyd Mayweather, are so good they don't watch tape and only do the usual: speed bag, heavy bag, sparring, etc. just to get on point; then go intothe fight and pick their opponents apart. Some guys actually do worse trying to get a gameplan against an opponent, as they have styles that they can't really adjust, and always en up reverting to type. Some guys have tremendous abilities to absorb punishment, and try to win through attritition and mentally wearing an opponent down late in the fight; but they usually lose to top notch boxers who can avoid getting into a punch out and outpoint them. Baskin Robbins in boxing, as it is in tennis.

I used to love to watch pro boxing back in the late 60's thru about mid 80's.  Boxing is a great sport.  Most have no idea how physically taxing it is.  Shadow box or punch a heavy bag (not OSU  ..-)) for a 3 minute round and multiply that by 12 rounds (or 15 in the old days) and let me know how you feel.  It is EXHAUSTING!!!!!!!!
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

Yes it is taxing. It's very taxing sparring, especially when you do 3 minute rounds and at the end of each round a fresh sparring partner is put in front of you. It's very mentally challenging trying to think when another peson is trying to take your head off; especially when you get tired. But tennis is as bad mentally, especially when you go into epic 5 setters, adrenaline dumping tie breakers, etc. I haven't played tennis in a long time but just watching those Baghdatis/Hewitt type matches is taxing enough sitting on the couch. Good stuff.

The quotation above the players’ entrance to Centre Court:
If you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two impostors just the same...
is an extract from If by Rudyard Kipling.

Benjamin Franklin:

Who is wise? He that learns from everyone.

Who is powerful? He that governs his passions.

Who is rich? He that is content.

Who is that? Nobody.

There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.

Life is never boring but some people choose to be bored. The concept of boredom entails an inability to use up present moments in a personally fulfilling way. Boredom is a choice; something you visit upon yourself, and it is another of those self-defeating items that you can eliminate from your life.

I know a man who gave up smoking, drinking, sex, and rich food. He was healthy right up to the time he killed himself

A few lines from a few songs from Jesse McCartney, one of my favorite singers, makes me chuckle. Sounds like an album of pick up lines. :rofl_2: I'll bet any of you guys $10 if you use any of these on a woman and find success. :rofl_2:

"I don't speak Spanish, Japanese or French, but the way your body's talking definitely makes sense."

"You're bangin' like a speakerbox."

"That body's like music to my ear."

"Ain't no rehab gon help me cuz I'm fadin out of control. You're the medicine baby, write me up for one more dose." (This is probably one of my favorite lines :rofl_2: )

"Baby you're a star, I'm rolling out the red carpet for you".
