Note to Self

Note to Self

There is a small but essential difference between a boxing competition being held under the banner of the Junior Olympics and one held under the watch of The Special Olympics.

Tommy, please learn to read signs a little more carefully.

I didn't read the sign right.

I spent the better part of the afternoon pondering the logistics of putting Special Olympians in the boxing ring. What's training like? What kind of protective gear is there? How many rounds? What do you do to rile the fighters up?

I'm a little sad to admit that I was, indeed, quite curious. Curious enough, even, to head out by the Regional Park, where they were holding the event.

But it's Junior Olympians.
