Them's Fightin' Words (Willamette Week story)
Posted September 6, 2011
G. Xavier Robillard: Ro-beast.
Scott Poole: Poetor The Destroyer 7th Prince King of the Free Versians.
Fiona McCann: Me Hoop McCann.
Cheryl Strayed: Vavoom, after the character in the old Felix the Cat cartoons who shattered everything by simply bellowing his own name.
How are you preparing yourself for battle?
Robillard: Whenever I'm stressed for any reason, my body's immune system goes on the offensive and attacks itself. The morning after I was invited to participate in this LDM my mouth was rotten with canker soars. Like a minefield. Now I'm nursing a sore shoulder, lockjaw, and hope to slip into a brief but restorative coma before the bout.
Also, I'm polishing my skull scar.
