24/365 Y2 - UNDISPUTED

Day 24 of 365 – UNDISPUTED

 

Like most people; I like certain things on certain occasions. I don’t watch baseball unless it’s the world series. I don’t watch a lot of football unless it’s the Superbowl and I don’t watch boxing unless it’s a big fight. I’m just not the hugest sports fan out there. I have my moments, but for the most part, I’m content just watching the highlights. Now if you get me to a game that’s a whole different story. I’ll go to a game any time of day to watch pretty much anything. It’s a whole different experience when you’re actually at the event. There’s something about the smell in the air, the crowd, the energy……the excitement. I think it has to do with the people; being with the people. On a grand scale, I’m in an arena with 50 thousand spectators watching pucks rocket down the ice; on a smaller scale I’m in a living room with nine friends and family watching two boxers go the distance of 12 rounds. Either way it makes the event that much more enjoyable; the people.

 

Tonight we spent the evening with great friends enjoying the fight between Shane Mosely and Floyd Mayweather. Unfortunately the trash talking, cocky, and over zealous titan won the bout. Although Mayweather is a great fighter, his PERSONALITY leaves a lot to be desired. It is VERY possible to be a great contender AND have the demeanor of a gentleman. I could word it much differently; however I won’t stoop to his level….(wink).
