    Translates as "Meet me in bathroom in 5 minutes. I'll be tapping my foot in the stall.... huh? Who is Anthony Weiner?"

    I think I read an article about it first time in Oui magazine, back in the 70s...

    I also read some of Delaney's novels and short story's, but never knew he was gay/bisexual until recently.

    Not that it would matter, but some of his works made more sense to me after that...

    the technique that Mr Flores lost too; involved grabbing him by the shirt with one and straight punches to the face with the other... hockey wins again.
    Even for hockey it was crap technique... the shirt needs to go OVER his head.

    Yeah, Tuan handed him his *ss. Dropped him twice.

    I seriously think any anxiety any of us have is mainly jealousy. How often have the collective you dreamed of doing the same thing
    It did not always work out that well for Doug and Jimmy in FIGHT QUEST. They generally managed to find some big locals to put against them. Except for the WC guys, IIRC.

    This guy, Francois Flores, seems to have several videos of his challenges floating around YouTube. Haven't watched many, but I have yet to find one that doesn't involve him mixing it up with an older, Asian man that is about half his size.

    I admit it. I am jealous and reaaaaaaaalllll pissed off that a Chunner is getting to do it... logistically it is the only way to do it. No WC or Kung Fu master is going to be like ... "yeah sure I accept your challenge" to a BJJ brown belt who isn't going to slap his feet on the tile or clap his hands for dramatic effect and play along with the nonsense as it works.

    I about died laughing when one of the little dudes started a really nice sprawl but then fucked it up by keeping his feet too close together.

    I never realized WC had head height roundhouse kicks, thai clinches and so many hooks.
    huh.

    It looks like karate or basically whatever other striking marial art excluded for the weird hand movements, that however disappear when he gets in range. He even keeps a fairly sideway stance, that I tought was a no-no in Wing Chun?
    I also tought that WC kicks were straight kicks, not roundhouses?
    I also see some rather high kicks.
    I see some tipically chunnish anti-grappling at 6:25 of the first video, but that's it.
    The older guy looked to be in much better shape. I wish I was that fit! He did not seem to punch at the face, however. When they closed in, it all became a crappy clinch and useless flailing.

    I feel bad for the older, smaller guy. He landed a couple solid kicks, but did not have enough power with the jumpy lead lunge sidekick. But it is fun seeing how in the wild scramble at a corner he instinctively went to grab for the legs in a sloppy takedown attempt.
