I survived Latin dance lessons without injury. It was actually a good time and I am glad I went. Of course there had to be some excitement though. I was outside the club cooling down and a car came really fast around the corner. Guy must have been drunk or something because he plowed right into the curb where I was standing and jumped it. Only the forewarning of The Force and my ninja-like reflexes allowed me to jump out of the way and escape any injury. The driver just kept going down the street but I could hear the left CV joint on the car clicking like it was broken. What an asshole.
A few great moments from various sports for a Sunday.
Jimmy Connors vs. Aaron Krickstein, US Open 4th Round 1991
Have I stated how much I love YouTube? In 1991 an aging Jimmy Connors goes deep into the well against Aaron Krickstein and wins an unforgettable 5 set match in the final set tiebreak. The below clip starts the ties break (Connors says "Is this what they pay for? This is what they want!". Scan ahead to the 8:50 mark for the end and the crowd goes crazy (cannot embed, sorry):
I remember that Connors was so jacked up after this match he had to walk around for 3 hours to calm down. Epic.
Marvin Hagler KO 6 Tony Sibson
Marvin Hagler brings the world middleweight title back to Massachusetts and stops Tony Sibson in 6 rounds at the Worcester Centrum:
That guy was amazing.
Tracy Porter and The Saints Win The Superbowl
My beloved Saints win the big one on a killer interception late. AWESOME find on YouTube:
Dale Earnhardt Wins at Bristol, Wrecks Terry Labonte
From 1999, this was nasty but that's Bristol:
The Man in Black.
Ending to "Searching for Bobby Fisher Film"
Ok, not sports but I do love this ending of a chess tournament:
Mike Tyson KO 7 Tyrell Biggs
In 1987 this was actually a huge fight and many thought Biggs would win. Not so much:
I am doing screening homework, but so close to vacation I probably will not buy anything. I like NCT here and I love RPM once again.
Have a good night.
