    You bring the scene alive here-- yup, I can imagine this unfolding, as well as the adrenaline rush-- watching matches like these can sure be riveting as well--but yeah, sometimes one can't help but feel sorry for the one losing, especially when there are cuts already and yes, that is a good motivation, of how you ended this, of turning it around with the last couple of lines...

    Somehow I missed this one! There you go again, with those cool endings of yours. I agree with Timothy - this made me think of the Roman Colosseum, especially when you used the word "barbarians." Of course, it also brings to mind boxing or UFC. AND I figured your avatar was a picture of your daughter. She looks like a hilarious girl! A kid who can be goofy usually = a happy kid, so good job haha :)

    I enjoyed reading this very much this morning. Winners are great, but a good loser don't ask for revange. If you go fishing with Jesus, I want to go to. Have a great day..... Lucilla

    It has that tone of something "epic" going on. I imagine a duel in the Roman Colosseum, the image is quite clear in my head. Loved the ending!
