December 8th is Take it in the Ear Day, something I am fortunate to only experience a few times in my life. An occasional elbow while playing basketball is expected, but getting punched in the face has to suck so hard. I don’t know how many of you have taken a punch square to your dome-piece, but I haven’t…and that makes me happy. Looking through galleries like this make me count my blessings that I chose a career path other than boxing and that I have never gotten in a real fight. I don’t know if that makes me a p*ssy, but frankly I don’t care. If you have taken one in the ear and can relate, or if you just enjoy seeing pics of people getting messed up, check out our gallery of people taking it in the ear below.
