Friday's Alright For Fighting
Apparently, Gleason's gym cam was aimed in the wrong direction this morning, so if you tuned in to gofightlive, you missed us women boxing. Hopefully, though, you stuck around for the other offerings on the channel, such as "Top MMA News" and the "iNeed A Smackdown" wrestling show. I made it onto yet another camera later in the day, some promo for some band. The old school headphones they had me wear worked well with my Adidas windbreaker. Otherwise, it's been drills, drills, and more drills, which is exactly what I came for. Learning the relaxed style of Alicia "Slick" Ashley, one of our trainers and the current bantamweight world champion, is tricky for us uptight types, but there's no trading the experience of learning it right from her, or watching the video of the championship bout with her at your side, narrating. And the great Jackie Atkins, my sister in arms. Michelle Obama, you got nothin' on us.
