Only 47 Left…Let’s Live Blog Most Of Them

Saturday night? That was the first Lang fight.  The Stallion showed a glimpse of push-back the first twenty seconds and then he was overwhelmed by the sheer, animal strength of the hungry challenger.  Don't forget. Clubber Lang lived alone, trained alone, ate alone, washed alone, raised pigeons alone and said horrible things to Adrian at an event that was supposed to be Rocky's Big Day.

And then he laid waste to Balboa.  Demoralized him.  

Unlike Rocky III, perhaps the greatest true story in modern boxing history, I have little hope of a miracle.

Holy hell.  It wasn't just a "fail to compete," or a lot of lost "puck battles".  There was no competition and there was no battle.  That Blues team is really good.  And our Wings team is really, really mediocre.  Slow. We looked plodding compared to Clubber Lang.  

I offer you no hope for 12. Not now.  Not after that.  Mickey's dead.  Adrian's lost faith.  All is lost.  

Appollo?  We need you.  And bring that fat drunk Paulie with you. 

It's a Live Blog.  With BJs.

Man, Dorsett is an ugly sack.

Of course, he makes more money and gets better looking women than I could ever dream of, so there is that.

I prefer to interpret his lips as having said “I’m a fuchin homo” - it’s hard to tell the difference sometimes, you know?

Brunner looks like this generaton’s Bill Lochhead.  Lots of flash, not much cash

Impressed with the Lochead reference. I don’t feel so old now, and can still remember his OT winner against Atlanta in the 78 playoffs.
