Suzy Barlowe

...

I was watching a friends post/share on fb. "Women"- of such-an-such "-boxing", a gym he works at.

He posted some videos of women, trainees- several of them, in their workout gear basically chasing him around, beating on him in the ring. He is wearing protective headgear and a body shield but...

the last one in particular brought back a memory of Suzy Bartlowe in the second grade.

This woman throws viscous elbows to the head, a knee to the groin, and finishes with a backward bending arm-bar (grasping the opponents hand /wrist, and bending the elbow back, the wrong direction).

Suzy Bartlowe... I actually started off with a crush on her. She was wild, and athletic - things I was not- strong, and even ( dare I say ?) fierce! Yes...

Then one day, over by the handball court wall, she kicked me hard in the thumb; made it swell up.

Mmm. I still found her attractive, but I think she was too much for me, for my 10-year-old self, to handle.

I suppose she became a prison guard or a lady shotput. Mmm. Quite a gal.

Anyone seen Angela Lee fight? Brawn, brains and beauty, though i guess the latter two are at risk from her career choice.

CTE sucks. At least the NFL is making progress after years of life altering injuries. IDK what Boxing and MMA can do. But they should do something.
