What to do when the pool gets closed down early? Start your own boxing ring, of course! These two boys were very enthusiastic, if a bit windmill-like with their arms, while pummeling each other.
The audience (sometimes heard to yell, "Hey, gimme the gloves! I wanna try!") was less enthusiastic, but planted firmly along the benches.
I particularly like the juxtaposition of the boys and the mom with baby in stroller. The baby is actually pointing to the boys with interest.
The gloves look pretty new; perhaps we'll be seeing more of this impromptu behavior.
At least they weren't waving machetes around like the boys in Sunset Park around 11 PM last night. I'll take padded gloves any day.
