Most of the guys I remember from chess club didn't have a right hook at all. I could take 'em, no sweat.

Too wierd, I imagine this will be followed by the French inventing Cheese boxing. Particpants box a round then sit down and sample some brie then box another round.

hell..... we've been doing that for years around here. We have at least one boxing match per tournament, depending on the amount of sauce administered.

Alan Turing used to play running chess where you would make a move and then run around the house.

Isn't it hard to move the pieces with the gloves on?

Sounds like something those giant stuffed rabbit fallen from the sky people would have concocted to me.

(one of my friends proves a point in paramedic classes by having folks run the stairs near the classroom and then come back in and try to do some basic dosage calculations that she knows they wouldn't otherwise have a problem figuring out. It's to show that you really DO function differently under stress. Takes the wind out of the sails of some of the hotshots too.)

In a couple of the pictures they are wearing headphones. Why? Relaxing music?

Anybody else old enough to have the urge to shout "Body blow! Body blow!!"?

Why they wear the headphones...
"The headphones are to keep out the noise of an unruly crowd that is screaming for piece sacrifices."
