So Girls Wrestle Too?
This weekend my step son Adam had his very first wrestling match. To my surprise there were several girl wrestlers. I was kind of shocked & wondered, "Why would a girl wrestle? I'm mean, it's a "hands on" sport." I don't think I'd want my daughter to, but there was this girl on my sons team who was really cute, had a nose ring, wore make up & was all suited up & ready to go.
She kicked butt! She did this move where she grabbed them, tripped them & then landed on top of them & pinned em'. She RULED...I think she only lost one match. Imagine how embarrassed the boy she pinned felt.LOL!
the take down move
I HAD to take pics of her for you guys!
a shocked boy
Now on to Adam...
He's only practiced for about two weeks, but he did really well & took second place. He looked like he was "backyard" wrestling with his brothers because he hasn't learned very many technical moves yet, but he's naturally athletic & only lost 1 time. He kept saying, "I hope I don't have to wrestle a girl!" And was really happy that he didn't.
I kept teasing him & told people, "He only lost once, to a girl!" He said, "I DID NOT! I never wrestled a girl!" Then we all started cracking up, "It's okay Adam, you can just admit it!"

If you had a daughter, would you let her wrestle?
