Believe it or not, I once knocked out a guy.

I was 17 and working away from home, retulrning home only every two weeks. One time when I walked into my bedroom my 15 year old brother came in from the other room and without a word grabbed me by my shoulders and began pushing me out.

I am saying, What are you doing? This is my room? What are you doing

He says, only: Out. Out. And kept pushing.

Outside the threshold I'd had enough and brought my fist over my left shoulder and punched him in the jaw. He was slightly shorter than I in height and it connected solidly.

Down he went. And down on my knees I went too, babbling, Oh, I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

After a memonet he staggered to his feet, mumbling It's all right. It's all right.

Years later I asked him what was going on, and he said the only reson he can think of is that he hated for me to be gone so much.

I never went pro though.
