    and training saved this guy's life.

    Lucky Dog vendor, threatened, puts Marine training to work | New Orleans Metro Crime and Courts News - - NOLA.com

    Knife wielding robber chooses a Marine to try and rob. Marine kicks his *** in a manner that would make most action movie stars jealous, all is right with the world for a moment.

    He should have given him a Lucky Dog. Geeze, those are dangerous things. In my younger days I had spent more than my fair share of time working around the New Orleans area, and I am afraid I have to admit spending more time than I should have at venues of ill repute in the French Quarter (although Rick's was an interesting exerience).

    There were a few nights where a Lucky Dog at 2AM was the only chance of food before having to get up and get back to the fabrication yard at 6:00 AM. Those Lucky Dogs will clean you out in no time at all.

    BTW, if you can find a copy of "A Confereracy of Dunces" as referenced in the OP, it is a hilarous read.

    So much for the robber starring in the movie of his crime. Excellent move by the Marine. Don't just push him off...slam his face into the ground! OOO-RAH! Semper Fi, Marine.
