Since a lot of you know Boomerhiker and Mrs.KatieBear I assumed most had heard his tale of the recent adventure he had when he posted it on his blog and talked about it on facebook.

I didn't want to hijack the OK Tornado thread but this is a tale worth reading

I'm surprised the ex didn't jump on boomer as he was trying to defend her.  That's the way it usually happens on "Cops"

Wow.  I guess some of us missed the whole Chuck E. Cheese boat and will now just have to living vicariously.  Think Boomer has the start of a multimillion dollar Hollywood script though...

Wow.  Very close to the last time I got into an altercation.  Men abusing women will generally get me involved.  WTG Boomer.

Cool reading and kudos to Boomer -- even if he smacked his B-I-L by mistake!!

Never into fighting -- nor sports -- had to google Ryan Howard.  :D

Way to do what was necessary, boomer.  It is sad that your little girls had to see firsthand that the world is not always a nice or safe place, but they also saw firsthand that it's safer with their daddy around.

Pretty sure I would get in a fistfight with anyone who tried to make me enter a Chuck E Cheese.

"Showdown at the Chuck E. Cheese"

For those who've never been here is the "Chuck E. Cheese Experience", ... actually have heard it's a place for kids to run wild while the parent soak themselves with pitchers of beer (drown their sorrows?).  Not as bad as the biker gang turf fight at a San Jose Starbucks however.

If you've never been in a Chuck E. Cheese, just watch 'Event Horizon' while eating awful microwave pizza...

It's sort of like that.

Let me get this straight.  Boomer got drunk at Chuck E. Cheese and was riding a broom around the establishment when he knocked over this young lady and the guy in the photo beat him up.  He then threw the kids in the car and went to a cheap casino to gamble for 16 to 20 hours.  Oh yeah, he gets my vote for father of the year.


:D

Apparently, fights are no uncommon at this fine establishment.  Classy!

Tragically the local Chuck-e-Cheese establishment does not serve beer. So I have had to endure it all sober.
