Random News of the Day

Who is Emanuel Steward and do I care that he has died?

 

 No, I do not.  Why? Because, according to his family, he is not dead.  He IS recuperating from surgery. 

 

Apparently, he is the Godfather of Detroit boxing.  Now, because of this wording, I’m imaging a boxing Mafia.  Men in long silk shorts and boxing gloves trying in vain to hold onto their tommy guns while clinging onto to the side of old cars with wide running boards you can stand on. 

 

Boxing gloves are not conductive to this kind of activity.

 

He supposedly ‘nurtured and guided’ people to world titles in the 1980’s.  It seems to me that boxing has been around a lot longer than that, even in Detroit.  If one is a ‘godfather of boxing’ shouldn’t one have been involved with it for a LOT longer than that?

 

A town in Florida is declaring war on baggy pants.  Despite the photo’s of people in generously wide pants, what they really mean in pants that are below the waistline and expose the undergarments or the skin. 

 

Some people say it is really to give the cops more ability to do ‘stop and frisk’ activities.  If they are really trying to cut down on crime, leave the baggy pants alone.  While it may not STOP crime, it will make it easier to catch people as they trip and stumble because of their own clothing.
