pull
 v.Gloss: to participate in an arm-wrestling contest. «Arm wrestling—or “pulling,” as the devotee knows it—has its subtleties, believe me.…Bean is a massive, radiant, heavy-booted man in his 50s, with a white handlebar mustache and, like other senior pullers whose hands I have shaken, a walnut-sized bolus of muscle at the base of his right thumb.…The victor meanwhile is expanding in rosy magnanimity. “Nice pull, nice pull,” says everybody.» —“A Hello To Arms” by James Parker Phoenix (Boston, Massachusetts) Oct. 17, 2007.
