Just as the other sconnies slouch and shuffle their way off the blogging train, whining and spitting on the conductor as they pass, Martine has hopped onboard by starting a blog of her own. One recent post talks about the game "Knock Your Socks Off." She makes it sound like a fun friendly party game, like a more rowdy variant of Twister. As a two-time NCAA KYSO champion at the University of Iowa, I can assure you that it is anything but. KYSO may be "the sport of the future", as it is often called, or "the kickboxing of the new millenium", but it is not for the fainthearted or weakankled. Not only do nice people finish last at KYSO, but they don't even get their socks back. Ever. You can't pussyfoot around if you want to keep your socks on and your toes intact. Instead, to win, you have to first break your opponent psychologically, and then podiafabrically.
