    Never was a bleeder, then again as a H.S. student I was a skinny 5'9" 114 lbs. at 17, yet was blessed/cursed with a 69" wing span. About the only way anybody in my weight class could whup me was to get inside, and I wasn't about to just "let" them. (Nobody could beat me in the rope dance). ;) Continued to grow after I joined the Navy - another 3 inches - and finally grew into my arm length/reach, but spent entirely too much of my early Navy pay trying to keep a sea bag full of bell bottom dungarees that weren't "high-water". ;) My ship finally made it to Taiwan and I loaded up on cheap Kaohsiung dungarees, (we pronounced it "cow shung dungs").

    Had quite a scrap (gloves on) with a kid that transferred into my school that later went on to the pros after HE finished growing - had to keep him off of me because he could hit like a fargin mule - name was Jerry Quarry. That day, and a couple other times, I was damn proud of my long arms. :D

    well, I doubt anyone else in here can claim that fame of going up against a man that has fought against Ali, not once, but twice, so I have a greater appreciation of you now Ol'Fella !!! ..... very cool !!!

    Good thing I caught him while we were still teenage boys eh? :D

    Even then, about the only thing that saved me was our coach/ref was enforcing Olympic boxing rules - if he had allowed Jerry to maul and brawl I wouldn't have had a prayer - it was silly for coach to put both of us to be in the same ring as he outweighed me by over 20 lbs even then. As it was, it came out a draw according to coach because I just slightly faster with both hands and feet - and believe me, I kept all 4 of them moving. The whole gym expected me to just lay down, and when that didn't happen nobody was a surprised as I was. (At one point I thought I'd broken my right hand hitting the top of his damn head). ;)

    He had a hell of a powerful hook with either hand, and even taking them on the arms made them feel like lead after a while. It was a gratifying experience for me - not so much for him, but may have inspired him to work harder on his hand speed in Golden Gloves competition.

    In my opinion, Jerry never could get over blinking and ducking his head every time he was jabbed and I always thought that was his downfall far more than turning into a bleeder later in his pro career, that caused him to take a lot more punishment than he should have - but damned if the very next year he didn't go on to win the National Golden Gloves championship, (about the same time I made Radarman Seaman in the Navy and married Heidi). Can't say I was surprised, damn that guy could bang!

    Great story Dave, Quarry become legendary himself after those Ali fights, there haven't been to many like him that could take punishment the way he did and he was always known for the power in his punches.
    Very impressive !!!!

    I can damn well vouch for his power - even as a kid. ;)

    We had another kid named "Lars", (for the life of me can no longer pull out his last name), that graduated the year after I did. Had a lot of fun sparring with him because he kept himself under control. He kept bugging me to join him in Golden Gloves, saying his Dad would transport me in with him, but I had other priorities - (primarily graduating, joining the Navy, and getting off of my Grandparent's backs in that order). Have never regretted passing on that - an awful lot of good has come my way courtesy of the Navy, and at this end of life, it still is. Lars competed, but did not make, the Olympic team - then later was killed in a single car crash up on Mulholland Drive. Jerry and his brothers are gone now except for the youngest who was only a baby at the time. His sister kept to herself, and you can bet *I* was careful to stand clear of her. :D

    I'm still around.
    Life is good! :tup:

    Charger Dave, you win the "Man's man" award for the week.

    I loved the sweet science, but none of the 5 guys (4-1) I fought were anybody.

    I always liked you...but now I fear you a little bit, too. :sick:

    I thunk ya did OK Mate :tup:.......... definitely made the right decision, you could count on one hand how many Pro Boxers get out of the game with all their faculties intact.......and most don't even start the game with many to begin with to be honest, not to many Rhode Scholars take up boxing as a career, do they !!! ;)

    Aaaaaahhhhhhhhh, its the dreaded enemy !!!

    you sir, are going down! I have put a fair bit of effort into fielding my team this week (ok, a good minute, but that's more than usual)

    the Spoogers will "blow you away" with ease, Peyton shall take his revenge this week and may well have a triple digit game. :D

    I have never played a Man U. player in my round FF Al Abbas. Drafting a Donko QB (nevermind a Manning) is equally bad taste. No victory is worth that kind of indignity. :roflmao:

    Besides... Rodgers is going to cut through those sad sack Vikes like a solid member bludgeoning dripping Ghee. QB points are going to be a wash at best. You are going to have to find your glorious victory elsewhere.

    No, I do see your point regarding "Manning", but I wasn't about to let Pumpy snap him up, which was an absolute "cert".

    I do live with the shame, but then again, I live with plenty of shame already, so what's a little more gonna hurt I say !!!!

    Oh yeah, Rodgers could well rack up more than Manning against that horrid lot of Vikings, they are an abomination presently.

    Frankie Gore will have to go berserk for me and it wouldn't hurt if Mighty Mouse pulled his finger out either... ;)

    A lot of these matchups are decided by one bizarre circumstance or another. I need the Bungles D to have a bad day and some obscure bum like McFadden or Fred to step it up. Helu got 3 tds last week and the Donko D is horrid. Who knows? I'd say the odds favor you, but not the 4/1 like the FF Gawd says.

    Hahahahaha, I have no idea where those odds come from! they do seem slightly out of wack every week.

    And there are so many variables that can't be accounted for also........it's a toss up from one week to the next, that's for sure.

    Oh do I know THAT drill well - entered H.S. at 4'9" 114 lbs, (yep - shortest in my H.S), by my Junior year was 5'9" and didn't gain a pound, (of course with the sports I had taken up, it was to my advantage to remain light). My arms were extraordinarily long already, and Heidi used to call me "ape" as a result. (She was 6" taller than I at that time, but never grew any more). Now I hug her and rest my chin on the top of her head just as a reminder of how she lorded it over me in our early teens. :D

    Little but loud, poor but proud, stringy but with enough speed and strength to surprise those that don't know ya - oh yeah Bro, I know that song very, very well. :tup:

    Charger Dave, X FACTOR and Lance! I checked into this place a couple of times and was shaking my head in manly disgust until I read your testimony!

    Dave, How old are you?

    Jack and others not mentioned, can you please stop talking about what colour of toilet paper you'll be having at your company Christmas party while rare warrior stories are being shared? Thanks!

    I'm not pro or have heaps to brag about but I fight and that's worthy by itself. Every other pursuit in life is richer when it's judged on its own instead of it being a surrogate for physical bravery. So many have it backwards.

    I'm fortunate enough to still spend 3 to 4 months of most years on wilderness/adventure retreats :D...no boxing, though
    since my teen years. Interestingly, there's one or two guys on here (whose most noteworthy "activity" is on a game console)
    who've given me crap about my age (I saw my first Charger game--that I remember--in '69, when I was a zygote) :p
    I still remember being a kid, hoping to represent the USA in the Olympics, like (a bigger, slower!) Sugar Ray Leonard.

    ATTENTION EVERYONE LIVING IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA!!!

    Please be advised to stay away from all McDonald's locations, as it may not be safe. The McRib has just been relaunched, and Jackfrosting is on the hunt. If you happen to come face to face with Jackfrosting, and you are holding a McRib............slowly, put it down, and take several steps backwards.......then run for your fargin life.

    You have been warned.

    May I add.... always take several steps backwards if you see Jack, McRib or no McRib!
