venting... what would you do?

So I'm having a few drinks some friends. then a fourth guy shows up. I let him know I've had a few to drink. after a while he says he can out run me, I say "no way". He says he can "out bike me". My friend says to him that I race bikes. I'm standing a this point, because I do race bikes and the friend tells me to sit down... so I do. I sit down and then the foruth guy says he's a "boxer" and can out box me. I stand up again ready to go out side. Not that I know a ton about boxing, but obviously the guy is full of himself. The other guy is still siting down, my friend is saying to calm down, so I get really pissed and walk out and go home.

sorry just venting....

I think you did the right thing by walking out. If you were having a few drinks and were a little buzzed, it would have been easier to puff out your chest, he to puff out his, thus becoming a manly man contest. But by walking out, you came home unscathed and he did too. I'd say you won here. You were the bigger man.

Don't get pissed, race the guy. And if you're so confident, wager a good sum of money.

No no no. I say spray him with flourescent pink icing and set him outside.

I think you guys should race to see who can grow up first.

I think you two should race. The man who wins gets to buy the other man a beer. (shrugs) I don't know. I'm thinking about it as if I were being called out in a game a pool. I hate when people call me out and say that I can't do something. I then would put money on the table and then they shut up...

So, I guess, my answer is changed to racing each other and putting money on it.

Tell him he has to drink as much as you've had to even the odds. Then race him. Then box him. Then phone an ambulance for him.

I think that you should have ignored him and carried on about your business...even though you went home...he still won because he annoyed you to the point where you had go go home...You shouldnt let morons bother you and you shouldnt be so ready to fight over something so stupid...if he was a good boxer he might have handed you your ass.

Testosterone and alcohol are a bad mix

On another note: What is this obsession with Pheard's genitalia?

So is the point here.......
You race bikes so that means you can whup a boxer.
So ,you stood up getting ready to back this all up & attempting to prove it. Then, your friend ordered you to pop a squat on that attitude of yours & upon that public ordering you have a baby tandrem & run home,that showed 'em . I bet he wont mess with you again

What would I do?

I'd pack up and move to a small hicktown in Wyoming, where I would fit right in with the dick swinging, bar fighters.

Maybe you should lay off the booze. Sounds like you are a violent drunk, and it could end up biting you in the ass (or wallet) one of these days.
