World’s Greatest Dad

I have been accused many times of saying things that are, at best, inappropriate. It could be because of circumstances (making a lighthearted death joke in a terminal cancer ward), audience (trying to make small talk with a barely-English-speaking Japanese foreign exchange student by bringing up a recent documentary I saw on a Japanese-American WWII […]

Earnie Shavers Power pt. 1

Let me start off by saying this guy could write a golf ball through a garden hose. He clearly doesn’t know s- about boxing, and the fact that he’s got a blog or alternatively is writing on someone’s boxing blog is categorical proof that the average intellectual level of published content is about that of my […]

Just for closure, here is some crap that, particularly given what I’ve just written, I don’t think I can even begin to address. However, I will try simply because it will show two things: 1. How right I am 2. How idiot here does nothing but exactly prove my points over, and over, and over… […]

Do Not Question the Power of Earnie Shavers.

My brother sent me a link to a particularly sad blogpost from a blog that is dedicated to heavyweight boxing. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t give the time of day to 90% of anyone else’s opinions on boxing unless there was some good reason.
