Inhibition: I’ve never really understood the interest in boxing. I’m a little squeemish about the whole idea.
Betty’s Response: It’s a sport! Played by two consenting adults…who train to fight!
Experience: July 17th I attended The Schlitz Bouts, in conjunction with Chicago Boxing Club and The Inconvenience, held at Logan Square Auditorium. The theme of the event was the roaring 20’s/30’s and “boxing’s golden age.”
What I didn’t know: Wholly cow! This event was SSSSOOOOO much fun and was an unbelievable $17 bucks! I had NO idea how exciting boxing is. Granted no one got really hurt or looked badly beaten up (each match was 3 rounds) so that may be why I enjoyed it so much. Still the enthusiasm of the fighters was thrilling and in no way did I ever feel like one was a victim or abuse was occurring. It was awesome and couple the great fights with dance, burlesque, comedy, magic, beer, and incredible music makes for a very awesome night and has kept a smile on my face ever since.
Woo!!! Ok now! Betty and I are off but first extending a big ole invite to get out there and SHOW ME WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW!!!
