Comments: Concussed...

Can I just say "OWww..." However, I did predict your response to be short and sweet like that :)

I answered all your quiz questions on my blog by the way! Thanks for the good questions :)

That was always the weirdest thing to me when I woke up after being knocked out. I KNEW what had happened, and I felt just fine afterward.

A hard head can be a blessing sometimes.

Okay... here's something I've always wondered...

Do those guys (the Brass) laugh when you guys (Non-Brass types) say funny shit like that, or do they have to remain all stone faced and constipated looking?

Some of those things I read in the Reader's Digest "Humor in Uniform" make me laugh til I cry and I just wonder what the DI's and those like them do in cases like that.

Had I been the dude who kicked you, I'd still be pissin' myself laughing at your first words...
(Even as a civilian, I can't quit giggling...)

HAHAHA! Awesome story. I can totally picture it happening too! Thanx for giving me a great laugh to come back to.

I got knocked out once...a very strong girl..who I think was taking steroids pitched a softball at my HEAD and knocked me flat out. I don't think 15 yr old girls are supposed to have facial hair right? Cause this girl had a moustache and some Popeye forearms..it just wasn't right man...

Wow. Yet another luxury in life I seem to have missed. I've never been knocked out...

I've had head stitches but never been
knocked-out. Believe I'll pass on that experience. As far as the enlisteds vs officers thing, we enlisteds can say damn near anything to an officer as long as we preface it with, "With all due respect sir...." That phrase kept me out of trouble many times.

Football practice! I was a sophmore. Every Wedesday the JV squad would do a 30 minute drill with the Varsity squad. I was 160 lbs and the senior fullback of 220 lbs came around the corner. I woke up a minute later and they asked me how many fingers, I said blue. I've got about four or five others too!

I saw a PVT knock out a PFC the other day... apparently during MCMAP the PVT didn't notice the tap out of the PFC while practicing a blood choke... so you've got a PVC laying on the deck passed the fuck out... are you still looking for a challenge coin I can hook you up with a MATSG 21 coin if ya want...

I've been knocked out twice in my life. I slipped on my driveway when I was 11 and the first thing to make contact with the cement was the back of my noggin.
The second time I was pitching softball in gym class when I was 15 and the batter hit a drive smack dab into my forehead hard enough that when it bounced off the catcher ran up and caught it for an out.
I distinctly remember seeing the stitching on the ball in amazing detail right before I went black...

Okay, first thing when you get off the plane, I'm carding you for insurance and a bond card...I'm enough trouble on my own.

Just kidding.

Mostly.
