A few beers in a bar with a guy with a confrontational personality and proud history of bar brawls!? I wish I could take a shot of that!!! Photographic shot, that is.
Well, geeze, since I am surrounded by 2 now-friendly former antagonists (
), let me relay a relevant story that yall might find funny:
Back in the day, I was at a sports bar in Los Angeles watching a fight and the fellas were all pretty into it (I think it was Chavez vs. Rosario). One of the guys there took exception to something I said regarding Rosario's boxing technique (imagine that
) and so we decided to "take it outside" to prove our points ... well, he bounced a few points off of me, and I bounced a few points off of him, and after awhile we both realized that we each knew what we were talking about, but just "did things different." (I felt I was pretty far ahead, but I am sure Kenny would tell a different version
Anyway, to make a long story short, we both shook hands and (though a little chopped-up and winded) decided to go back in and see if there was anything left of the fight we were watching. The bouncer shook his head and let us back in and I think we caught the last two rounds.
Anyway, that was back in 1988, in my last year of college, and this fella and I have been friends ever since (he's a German Jew and I am German-Irish). We still get into "interesting" disagreements, twenty-something years later, but to me it just adds "spice" to the friendship--and so it just goes to show that good things can come from butting heads originally
Slobodan, he also has never shot anybody, so it's probably safe enough for me
Well, Pegelli, if you and I ever do go to a pub together, and we happen to get into it, I am still gentleman enough to make sure you get home safe after it's over. Of course, if it turns out that you whip me, then I may just have to shoot you
(LOL, that's a joke!)
