I used to think that phrase was figurative. You know, fighting for your rights. Fighting for good. Fighting for a cause... like animal activists, or people who picket or write to the editors of newspapers or protest book burnings or chain themselves to trees that are scheduled to be bull dozed.
Well, tomorrow night, my husband is fighting for a cause...literally. That's right, tomorrow night is the annual Battle of the Badges, where cops and fireman square off in a ring and box. The money raised from ticket sells will go to fallen and wounded soldiers, as well as police officers and firefighters who need assistance because of illness or injury.
Hubby is all about helping people. He's also all about "hitting a cop and not going to jail for it." With his bad luck of getting pulled over, I can see that. haha. At least he's honest. =)
All in all, its a fun event, a fundraiser, and for a good cause. That's why I can't argue.
I can only sit in the stands and chew my fingernails off while watching the match between my fingers. (still not sure how I'm going to manage to chew AND watch between my fingers but I'll figure it out.)
So pray for Hubby tomorrow night, that the event is a success and he doesn't get hurt too bad. Actually, no one needs to get hurt. Kinda defeats the purpose of the charity event, if you ask me - money going to injured fireman??? lol
Hubby has always been big into MMA and fighting and all that, and has been training more or less these last few months. I know he'll be fine.
Chew, chew, chew....
