Rock on Nicola Adams

Yesterday I managed to temporarily suppress the pre-historic chivalrous man who lurks somewhere inside me and enjoyed an Olympic female boxing match.

Nicola Adams, a Leeds native beat the living hell out her Chinese opponent, Ren Cancan to be crowned a champion and rightly don the gold medal.  And I was amazed by how much I enjoyed it given how uncomfortable I usually get whenever I see women fighting.  It just feels wrong but I suspect its one of those things evolution will eventually sort out for us and a few generations from now men will be able to sit through a female heavyweight boxing match without so much as a flinch.

But can I use this space to send a word of warning to the guy who's currently dating Adams:  If you're even thinking of cheating on her, you better break up with her now.  Trust me, the beatings will be less severe than if you do it a few months down the line.
