#BackBayBoxing #haymakersforhope #fightcamp #kickedoff Monday August 7th on a massively positive note.
After Sunday's away fixture and #mediaday in enemy territory, I was filled with so many memories from days with my brothers and father growing up and traveling around gyms in Ireland. Early Sunday mornings ain't when you mess with the #irish...there's still an edge, an edge from that one last drop, that #onefortheroad lads as they say, the one that'll help ya sleep.
Post-bout I was, as usual, customarily chewing on a straw. Sucking up the last drop of coffee from a homemade vanilla latte thinking 'Christ my head hurts', 'what time is it again?', 'wow, this place is fancy looking!', 'are ya even allowed bleed in here?', 'we don't have a spit bucket, f**k I need to buy a spit bucket', 'what's with all the pretty girls in #boxinggloves?', then back to 'what time is it again?, and of course 'Christ my head hurts'. All of a sudden it was time to focus. There's a saying in Ireland, 'if you don't know where the toilets at, you're already in trouble!' so I decided I'd better go find it and fill up my plastic cup with some water. Different places bring back the most vivid emotions and memories of gyms for me and as I was still looking around admiring the fancy decor one of my fighters asked me 'so, how do I get into the ring?' All I could do was smile and think #theresafirstimeforeverything. Our opponent was waiting, bouncing about confidently in her #squarecircle. She'd been here before, she even knew where the toilets were! They were about to play their cards, we hadn't even looked at ours yet.
They say that a #littlebitofknowledge is a dangerous thing. On Sunday last, we learned so much, so so much and we #haventevenstarted!
We've #lotsdone but #teambackbayboxing and #coachjohnnyirish are just warming up!
