they took my cigarette lighters

yet let me walk in with DOZENS of boxes of matches. i don't get it. the whole place is made of concrete. wtf would burn?

tons of police and security AND you have to walk through metal detectors AND have your handbags rifled through.

what am i talking about? the boxing match at the
connecticut convention center in hartford.

addy was supposed to box first, but her match ended up being fourth. good thing because her match only lasted 35 seconds! yes, that's right 35 seconds. those women hit MORE than the men did in ALL three prior matches.

i'm so very happy for you addy! congratulations!

(and oh yeah, i got to see a fighter who got popped in the gut, just STOP in the ring, bend his head down, spit his mouthpiece out, then go to the ropes and puke over the side. good thing i didn't spring for the $500.00 seats!
