Tonight I will go to my first ever boxing event! Not really sure how I feel about that being that D will be in the ring. What's a mother to do? He really wanted to be a part of "Night of Boxing" for a wrestling fundraiser. I just don't understand signing up to have someone punch me...Not really my idea of fun to have someone beat the crap out of me. Hopefully that will not be the case! He assures me he will be fine, they have protective gear, gloves, divided into weight class, etc. Me, on the other hand, am not really sure how I will be about watching. Don't get me wrong, we are extremely competitive at our house. We just have not ever been competitive in a combative (is that a word?) sport. I do think he is prepared, he has been working his booty off getting ready for this. I hate to admit it, but I think he quite likes it. Or at least until the pain sets in. I will let you know the outcome later.
1. Ability to do what you want physically
2. Protective gear
3. hhhmmmm ice?
