    Yeah, that's more or less why I brought up this subject. Reading that article brought a few ugly memories...

    I used to play little league baseball back in Honduras, and one time, when it was my turn to take the bat, I was hit with the ball right under my left armpit. That **** cracked my ribs, and I felt like everything stopped inside me. Scary ****. Years later, the exact same **** happened, but this time when playing soccer. And when I was 22, I hit this guy on his **** during a mindless altercation... right where his heart is. I though he was going to die, and that was when I decided never to let an altercation get the best of me.

    Anyways, this should serve as a reminder to adults to be extra careful when it comes to putting kids in contact sports. Most coaches are anyways.

    I'd rather let my kids risk their lives playing contact sports then have them waste it away in front of a TV set.

    I was gonna say win by car crash or dropkick.

    or the metaphorical "35 MPH car crash" only a Muay Thai champion could deliver. if you guys have watched fight science, you'll know what I'm talking about.

    i help coach a local high school wrestling team and this one poor child got slammed by this gnarley floating hip throw... it completely caught this jr. varsity kid off guard and he landed wrong with the thrower landing right on his chest cavity compressing it hard. Not only did it crack ribs and knock the wind out of him; his heart went into defibrilation and they had to shock him to get it started again. all while during practice.
    The coach wanted him back in practice a week later because he needed the practice and they didn't have a 135 in the j.v. spot. Its assholes like that who give contact sports for kids bad names.

    I would have to say such an experience will give your kids a lesson in humility and on how hard it is to make money... which is not a bad thing at all for kids nowadays :evil6:

    Well, Poop Loops said he was going to retrofit a particle accelerator/collider into a baby accelerator/collider. So maybe it can collide a baby on a kids' chest and record the results... I'm going to hell for sure.
