For anyone not checking the comments, I have been busy attending to a very serious medial emergency in the family. I can gladly say tonight that things are looking good, and the area of major concern is being pushed back. I thank you all for the kind sentiments and concern, I really think my favorite part of this blog has been the great people I have "met" during writing.
I have some free time tonight (the patient is resting very comfortably across the river 5 minutes away at the best hospital north of Boston) and I am in need of a mind changer for a brief period. No financials tonight, but a few selections of various sort.
As a pick me up, I often think of great fights. Most of my own boxing matches I try to forget (did I really get hit that much? I was 47 (30 by KO) wins and 2 loses!) but super fights are all time classics.
Enjoy perhaps the greatest single round in the history of boxing, Marvin Hagler vs. Thomas Hearns round 1:
I still, to this day, get chills watching that round.
When Julio Cesar Chavez stopped Meldrick Taylor with 10 seconds to go in the 12th and final round of a fight he could not win on points, lets just say I was extremely excited that Chavez saved the day, video of an HBO special on the fight (listen to the crowd noise!):
Chavez, while behind, effectively finished Taylor as a top flight fighter. Please just listen to the crowd noise, very special!
Mark, from Illusion of Prosperity, has the speech from "V for Vendetta" up tonight, and I would point you that way to catch that item. Very meaningful and moving message. My own dialogue that gets me through the harder times comes from the film "Matrix Revolutions". I have featured this item before (here) but feel I needed the lift again (ignore the subtitles) and I might add that Hugo Weaving does the acting for both clips:
Maybe a little music, yes?
For the Mom, her favorite song "Pretend You Dont See Her":
In no more logical order, I would appreciate opinions on all these songs. I close the show with the greatest song ever recorded live, so enjoy and thanks!:
Have a good night.
