This "Mayweather-Pacquiao" Fight they're calling the "Fight of the Century" is uninteresting to me. I assume Floyd will win, he's undefeated and Manny has been starched in recent years. It's sorta like 2 old characters on the downslide. The Unwashed Masses make a big production out of the most trivial things. I sold my '74 Dodge to someone who will restore-it to a Classic. I was going to donate it but wanted it in the hands of someone who would do right by it. 15 years ago, I had it totally-restored, that was then this is now, it's been somewhat vandalized and other things. My Mother bought that new 41 years ago, the engine lasted 214 thou, but that's the original transmission, a torque-flight 6, and it has 246, 650 miles on it. They don't make 'em the way they used-to (I hear a chorus of "Amens"). The Car will be very-happy to be restored to a beautiful Classic. What, just 2 and a half weeks ago I would have been badly-injured when that irresponsible Filipino Woman smacked-me in the rear, except that I was in that steel-car, which is much safer than any car with air-bags. Say Banzai to this Noble Car
Tommy Lasorda was the long-time Manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers. One of the prizes given-out at Dodger Stadium was "Dinner for Two" at Tommy's restaurant, "Lasorda's," which eventually was shut-down by the Health Dept. for, amongst other violations, "rat-infestation"

I'm ashamed to say that since I've returned to watching "Jeopardy" that I'm only getting a third of the Final Questions right, prior to my 12-year hiatus I got half right, and that's the same as the Contestants do, on the average the 3 Contestants get one and a half right. I play the same way the Contestants do, no looking anything-up in the 30 seconds and I don't kid myself saying oh, a few more seconds and I would have had it, or, that was a stupid mistake on my part, sure I had it, you can't fool yourself and I don't try. I'm on a six in a row losing-streak, what, I've gotten so old that my brain has shrunk and that's the best I can do? I feel like I'm getting sharper all the time, but for sure not in "Jeopardy." Maybe eat alotta fish or something. I can't imagine Life being worse than this, I need to restore the blush to my cheeks. Alex went down a couple nights (I fell asleep and missed last night) ago, Alex was a tall, nice-looking Jewboy who won 6 times for a great amount, Alex would go double or nothing for 15 thou or so, he had big ....., I liked Alex, I bet his parents are proud of him. Chase Maddux, the son of Greg and nephew of Mike, just signed with UNLV. Chase is 6'2" and 140 lbs. and goes 85, when he gets some meat on his bones he'll go 115. I just re-visited a real fine Blog from Feb. 11, 2009 (sounds like I gave up on Valentines early).
A couple days ago I got the 2nd most Hits ever. Once again, a lot were from Russia, if my own country doesn't want to employ me, I'll work elsewhere, that's reasonable. I have no respect for anyone I see on TV, as they're all bought-off, they all know that Kelly Ripa is gay, this they've concealed for several years. I put-up with the TV Folk as I'm a kind person but (See My Blog for Sept. 2, 2010). To be a member of the American TV Media would be horrible. This trial in Germany of "93" year-old Oskar Groening is stupid. Apparently all this guy did at Auschwitz was go through the prisoners' belongings looking for cash, which he sent-on to SS Headquarters. His involvement was minor. I've been to Auschwitz and nearby Birkenau, in Auschwitz they had a room full of suitcases, I mean just full to the ceiling, and they had another room full to the ceiling of Hair, presumably women's hair. And I was in a basement where they first tested the Kyclon-B Gas on 600 Russian prisoners-of-war, I was the only one there and it creeped me-out thinking of these guys clawing the walls and such. History reveals that human nature is flawed.
This Sat., Vladimir Klitschko is facing undefeated Bryant Jennings at Madison Square Garden. The last I noticed Jennings was a plus 900, that is, if you bet a dime on him and Bryant won, you'd get your thou back plus another 9 thou. Dr. Klitschko is one of the best of all-time, his long left-jab is thrown piston-like, not sticking-out his elbow, and is hard to see, and feel. After awhile the good doctor's jab turns over a left-hook, setting-up his concussive overhand-right. If Jennings has any religious convictions, and if he makes it to the 6th Rd, he'll think he's in with the Devil.

Of late, half my Hits have been from Readers in Russia (?). Vlad, get off your fat-butt and hire Ed, having a great telepathist in one's employ is a wonderful thing. I'll work for anybody who pays me exceptionally-well. Over the past week I've had 3 Hits in Nigeria, ha.
I didn't know who was Britt McHenry. I used to sell BBB memberships back in Ohio, and apparently this tow co. has an "F" Rating which means it's "Condemned" and considered a dishonest stable, a criminal enterprise, if you will. This co. will tow anything that doesn't move. Britt's dealings with this tow co. has nothing to do with sports reportin', it's a NonStory. In her line of work, the obese, dentally-challenged Hag has heard a lot worse than Britt's comments. I like spirited women, pretty Britt, remember that Ed stuck up for you.

I saw "The Imitation Game" at Tropicana Cinemas, $2, the biographical of Alan Turing, that sure was a sad ending. Jerry "Irish Jerry" Quarry (May 15, 1945 to Jan.3, 1999) was a big-name Heavyweight Boxer during a Golden Era of Heavyweights. From a boxing-family in Bakersfield, Ca., Jerry first put-on the gloves at "5." His parents were Oakies, his father had HARD LUCK tattooed on his knuckles, I used to see this in Akron on old Hillbillies, also LOVE HATE. At "19," Jerry won the National Golden Gloves in 1965 and was on the cover of S.I. in 1966. Jerry fought all the Best who would fight him (53-9, 32 KO's) amongst them Muhammad Ali, twice, Joe Frazier, twice, George Chuvalo, Earnie Shavers, Ron Lyle, he was known for an Iron Chin but would cut fairly-easily. In 1969 he fought Joe Frazier and was stopped on cuts in the 7th Rd. but was praised for not going-down, this was the "The Ring's" Fight of the Year. Jerry was generally successful and said his Life was ...Better than changing-tires at the Greyhound... Mike's Frat at UNLV was hired to be ushers at the Hilton for Jerry's 2nd Fight with Muhammad Ali (6-27-72) with Quarry entering 2nd-Ranked HW. He was stopped in the 7th Rd on cuts, Mike commented ...Jerry Quarry, human punching-bag... Jerry had some good moments, when he fought the great Earnie Shavers, one of the hardest-punching HW's of all-time (Dec. 14, 1973), he stopped Earnie in the 1st Rd. By 1983, Jerry was found to have an irregular CAT SCAN revealing the effects of "Dementia Pugilistica" but despite a number of retirements kept on fighting until 1992 when he was "47." In Jerry's last few years he had to be fed and dressed by relatives, dying at "53" on Jan. 3, 1999. Randy Gordon was the Chairman of the New York State Athletic Commission from 1988 to 1995 and knew Jerry quite well when he was up and coming ...Jerry Quarry could consistently do "The New York Times Crossword Puzzle" in 15 minutes, and I don't know anybody who can do it in 15 minutes...
I have a lot of Hits today and I haven't even done a Blog for 6 days (oh, be still my beating-heart, Ed is doing a Blog). McKayla would like to smack me silly, seems like in Life you've always gotta be walking on somebody, Vladimir Lenin, Father of the Modern Russian State whose plasticized Remains I've seen in Red Square ...All of life is a fight... I didn't sleep with a pillow until I was "11" as my Mother was afraid I'd grow-up to be slope-shouldered. I'll be "68" in June but still have a lot of blonde-hair, it's all on my face, my eyebrows and beard, it's surprising. The past 2 months there's been some real-good Boxing Cards on NBC, with Big-Name Fighters, and getting Good Ratings. Sat., Danny Garcia was lucky to get the W over Lamont Peterson, Peter Quillin and Andy Lee fought to a Draw in an entertaining Middleweight Contest. Andy is an Irish Traveller (See My Blog for Aug. 25, 2013) and the Cousin of Luke Fury who's currently the 3rd Ranked Heavyweight after Vlad Klitschko. Boxing is a great sport, you just gotta get-out before you go Puncharoo

Before he left for Asia, Mike told me to take his NV license plate, only need one on the rear, and turn it in to the DMV. So I washed it with hot, soapy, water, dried it, and put 2 gallon-bags around it tying them with a twistie. I go to the DMV and walk up to the front of a humongous line and offer the license plate to a DMV guy who looked like he was from India. He said, you can't just walk up here, you have to wait in line ...Do you want it... As I was walking away, to smooth things over ...It's washed... For the past 3 months I've owned 2 cars, the Avalon and also the '74 Dodge. I drove the Dodge to the gym and afterwards was driving down Maryland Pkwy. towards a pizza and then home. I was just going the 35 mile limit in traffic when I felt a horrible jolt from someone hitting me in the rear. I pull over and this Filipino woman also pulls over in her SUV. I had never felt anything like that in my life, it was a terrible feeling. I expected all kinds of damage but all I had was some marks on the bumper and the aluminum strip between the rear lights that says DODGE was pushed-in in the middle. It was the slightest of damage. The woman was going to her job at McDonald's dressed in their livery, I didn't talk bad to her or even raise my voice, but indicated disappointment in her driving (how could she be so careless), and let it go at that. That's a steel-car with big steel-bumpers, had that been the Avalon the trunk would have been in the back seat.
His Politics aren't mine but I'm truly sorry about Harry Reid being blind in his right-eye. It was probably an old machine, and the band that broke wouldn't be expected to last forever. In a Country of 340 mil occasionally a Cop will murder somebody, Law Enforcement isn't a perfect thing by any means, and I'm appreciative for the protection from the Low Elements that I'm afforded. You can make it such that nobody will want to be a Cop, make such a big production over a Rogue Cop. Years ago in Las Vegas there was a Cop who within a 5-year Period killed 3 people, all Street-People where he was the only surviving Witness, in one instance he cut the guy's throat. In all 3 instances he was found to have acted justly. I said by the time this guy retires he'll have killed half the People in Las Vegas. Eventually he was fired over a technicality. The Sergeant who for a while briefed the group that he was a part of prior to beginning their Shift ...He'd sit in the back and constantly fold and unfold a big Buck-Knife, the guy gave me the creeps...

3 men in S. Africa were sentenced to a minimum of 30 years in Prison for the murder of Corrie Sanders (See My Blog for Oct 21, 2012). S. Africa with all the violence and AIDS is worse off than when under Apartheid. Prominent Black S. African boxers were Courage and Ginger Tshabala, Ginger was killed in a Carjacking. When I was in the Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth, on the site where Mary was told by the Angel that she was to be the mother of Jesus, a Black S. African Priest was nice enough to speak with me, and hearing that he was from S. Africa I started talking about boxing and mentioned the Tshabalas. The Priest told me that his last name was also Tshabala. I said, Father, it's probably been a long-time since someone came into the Basilica and happened to mention your surname. The Good Father was lamenting the Moslems beheading people while using the name of God, I could see his point. Cedric Kushner passed at "66" from a heart attack brought on by obesity. I had seen Corrie fight in one of Cedric's "Heavyweight Explosions." The S. African who described himself as a "disobedient youngster" who only reached the 7th Grade, was for a time one of the big-players in Boxing. Cedric was a kind man who did a lot for the People and is missed.
McKayla is a pegleg old veteran, they have a fresh team every 4 years. She revealed herself to me to be a Tramp and a Queer, so I wouldn't be associating with her. But I really do care about her, and I'm glad that she's been able to make a fortune off the Pub I gave her. When one door closes another opens, on Sat. at the gym there was a really cute girl that I had seen in there a couple times, I went over and introduced myself, I could be a hundred and there'd still be some girls and young women interested in me. She's a paralegal and has other aspirations, she has a nice personality. I'm not going to be around for a long time, she's a futures hedge.

For the past few months nobody has tried to Friend Me on Facebook, is it because I haven't Friended anyone, I haven't. Previously I had all these people who remembered me from high school trying to Friend Me, now nothing. There should still be somebody, must be because I Friended not. Brett Anderson, who I saw pitch for Oakland in Oakland against the Indians in June, 2011 (See My Blog for June 9, 2011) signed with the Dodgers, a 1-year Contract for 10 mil, nice work if you can get it. Relating to my brother, Bob, and High School Wrestling see my Blog for Feb. 10, 2011.
I'm tired of you Moochers. Anyone who has read my Blog more than a hundred times isn't allowed to read it henceforth. It was 30 years ago today, as I write I was taking-it, that I passed the Federal "Series 6 Futures" Exam, and buddy, that was a hard test, no background. I just read that Lincoln was killed on Good Friday, didn't know that. When you watch "Free TV" you're bludgeoned with Commercials, decades ago there'd be a Commercial or 2 every 15 minutes, tolerable. Lubitz' forebears were bombed into the Stone Age giving rise to people like him, Germany is just some place where a lot of things are produced, sort of like a big Factory. A couple times lately I've seen this story on HLN where some White Marine went out to get Fast Food and when he got back he found his wife had been bludgeoned, not with Commercials, and was now brain-damaged and told Authorities that it was her husband who had done this to her. In reality, a Black Marine had snuck-in and raped her and this other. The husband was made to do 18 years in Prison before DNA testing showed that it was this other guy, who was already in Prison. One day in Prison would be horrible. What, SNL had a Skit where Dakota Johnson was some girl whose father dropped her off at the airport so she could join ISIS. Amanda Knox said that she'd like to visit Italy some day. She must have been in Shock to say that, she was Convicted, she was declared Innocent, she was Convicted, she was declared Innocent, I'd leave well-enough alone. On June 8 it'll be 50 years since I graduated from Akron Firestone in the lst Graduating Class and they're making a big deal out of it. The aunt of Patrick Carney of the "Black Keys" was in my Class and she was the best-looking I've seen, and she died at "50" from Breast Cancer, she was the most important one, this thing would be like a Wake or something. I haven't been to any Reunions, my older brother, Bob, went to his 10th, I was in the Akron Area at the time of my 10th and I was in the Phone Book, maybe I would have gone had they called-me, I never thought about it.
