We learn that you can lose but still win…
Late Night Restaurant “Grilled Short Rib Patties” Episode 9 Recap
The boxer is older, 34 years old, and has been winning less and less.
His manager finds signs him up for a major fighting contest. If he wins he could hit the big times.
His weight class was filled, so he has to enter in a higher weight class. He needs to gain 2 kilos, 4 pounds, so he eats often and a lot at the cafe.
During a training run, he sees a pretty nurse asking people to volunteer to give blood. He thinks she’s cute so he volunteers. The nurse remembers him from another event, so it looks like she’s crushing on him too. He gives blood regulary and they become a couple.
The boxer wants to confess his affections for the nurse like the Rocky did in the movie “Rocky”. In the movie after the fight, in the final scene, Rocky’s girlfriend Adrian reaches the ring, throws her arms around Rocky, and they both declare their love for each other.
The boxer does well in the contest and reaches the final. Everyone at the cafe is cheering for him to succeed.
At the final fight, the boxer gets in some good hits but falls to the younger fighter. His girlfriend attends the fight and finds it hard to watch him get hurt.
The morale of the story was you can lose but still win. I liked the drive and work ethic our boxer had. It was reasonable that he realized this was his last chance to make it and accepted that fact. He gave his all. Just when you thought his girlfriend might have walked away from the fight, he sees her waiting for him. Sweet scene in the cafe.
The charm factor for this episode was medium high. The boxer worked hard and found love. Sweet!
