Even though you always lose? How cute.

Seriously, I think it's one of the better arguments, because I honestly think both sides are very valid positions. I don't always like arguing it per se, since so many are close minded about it, but from a strict debating sense, I think it has great potential. Unlike the DH for example, where everyone knows that it's stupid, and there's no real argument.

Never heard the one about boxers before. Seems silly considering boxers are some of the best conditioned athletes on the planet.
