The Squared Circle


They always have wrestling at Cinco de Mayo, the faked and staged American commercial version. Often it's the Mexican variant, lucha libre, with its colorfully masked contestants. Not this time, at least while I was there. But anything goes, as long as it looks violent but really isn't. It is a field trip in cultural anthropology.

Nice action shots.

Fake though it is, it does provide good action shots!

All I can think of is the amount of bruises I'd have just watching this.

That's definitely different. Great action shots. Bob.

Fake, but fun for sure. Pardon the sort of pun, but I get a kick from watching wrestling or kick boxing.

Never really understood the point of fake wrestling, but people seem to like it and I hear it is spreading to Sweden as well!
