Our story begins at the Olympics, specifically the wrestling event. It is
narrowed down to the Russian or the American for the gold medal. 

Before the final match, the American wrestler's trainer came to him and
said, "Now don't forget all the research we've done on this Russian. He's
never lost a match because of this "pretzel" hold he has.  Whatever you
do, don't let him get you in this hold!  If he does, you're finished!"

balls right in front of my face.  I thought I had nothing to lose, so with
my last ounce of strength I stretched out my neck and bit those babies
just as hard as I could. 

"So!" the trainer exclaimed, "that finished him off did it?" 

"No, but you'd be amazed how strong you get when you bite your own balls!"
