Different eras Anthony! Your obvious nut-hugging on the Klit boys, among others, is flawed. In the 50's and early 60's they wouldn't have been the beefcakes they are now and Sonny may well have been even more chiseled in the 21st century. I've seen the Klit's get that deer in the headlights look when they're hurt and all things being equal Sonny would have reached them and hurt them IMHO. My $0.02
