Taking your 11-year-old son to be the benchwarmer on his tackle football team every Saturday for an entire season is infuriating. That’s not why we paid $300 for him to join a tackle football team and it’s not why we take him to practice three times a week for two hours every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Yesterday, following a second consecutive game where my son did nothing but sit on the bench, his coach privately told me Jonathan wouldn’t be playing. Actually his coach said something much more depressing about him but stay with me here because this story has a surprising twist. (more…)
“For the thousands in attendance and the millions watching around the world…ladies and gentlemen…let’s get ready to rumble!”
Now here’s a party with the guys in mind (and of course, all of you boxing loving ladies!) As you know, the Mayweather vs. Ortiz fight is right around the corner. This is one of the most highly anticipated events of the year and will be watched by millions around the world. Three world titles are at stake, including, of course–Floyd Mayweather and Victor Ortiz, who will face off in a 12-round fight for Ortiz’s WBC Welterweight World Title at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
