Last Time You Threw a Punch?

    We had this discussion at work today at lunch. I realize that it's been more than 10 years since I threw a punch at someone.

    Playing hoops at my gym in about '96 or so. I had a relatively open layup and a regular in the game pretended to dive underneath me as I was in the air. I went to protect myself and missed the shot. As I landed, he said that there was no foul because we didn't make contact. I lost my mind and literally saw nothing but red. He was way stronger than me, but I got about 6 or 7 good shots in and drew some blood.

    In high school I kicked a guy who was coming at me with a knife. Does that count?

    In 1998, still young (22) just out of college, bar brawl - literally like one out of the movies. They locked the bar's doors, and people were breaking chairs and pool cues over people's backs. Total insanity.

    Ha. I was on one of those at a bowling alley when some of my drunk friends mixed it up with a couple guys over a game of pool.

    Spilled out into the parking lot and I had to keep dragging the girlfriend's of the other guys off my buddies. The gals were giving it to my guys pretty good.

    I think Ace was hanging with Allen Iverson in high school. I've seen the video.

    The last time I threw a punch was when I tried to break up a fight between Alyssa Milano and Ashley Judd. They were fighting for the right to date me, and when I stepped in, Ashley's bodyguard came over and tried to restrain me. Two hits. Me hitting him, him hitting the floor. Then, I turned around and said, "Hey babes, you can share in my greatness." So I started scoring with both hot chicks at once. Whatever.

    Four or five years.

    At my local pub, I used to be the guy assigned to watch the bartender's back when he was breaking up the occasional fight. I didn't work there, but the owner and bartenders trusted me to watch their backs.

    Another SJer actually happened to be in my city once when a bad brawl happened. He wound up watching my back while I watched the bartender's back as some frat boys brawled with some locals on the sidewalk out front.
