oh, come on. you know – mortal kombat!
street fighter, then, perhaps? always a good choice. in any case, my saturday night was spent attending lonestar beatdown 12, a competitive mixed martial arts event, at the arena theater in houston. i was accompanied by fellow enthusiasts adam, michael, sergei, kenny, and kenny’s girlfriend, ashley. compared to the last few lonestar beatdown events i’ve been to, this one, unfortunately, had the best finish. after 14 fights, the 15th and final showdown ended abruptly in less than 2 minutes in the first round with a knockout. it’s not everyday you get to see a 205lb man just drop. my only real complaint: in a venue with readily available alcohol, scantily clad ring girls, and an announcer who says, “shit” over the loudspeakers, i think the parents that brought their 5-year olds should have found a babysitter instead. all in all, a good time.
