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.

Zombie News of the Day

Brains!

The Zombie Apocalypse has arrived.  It starts inMiami!

I was running late to work this morning.  By taking the interstate, I managed to get to work on time. But getting the computer started and clocking in took me until 5 after.  The upside is that I heard a very strange news story on the car radio.  I would have missed it if I had left on time. 

A naked man near an off-ramp attacked a homeless guy and started to eat his face off.  Police arrived and ordered him to stop.  He ignored them.  An officer shot him once but he continued to eat the guy’s face.  The officer had to fire five more shots to take the naked man down. 

These morning guys can be a little crazy sometimes.  So I’m totally shocked that neither one bothered with the most obvious comparison.  Naked guy thought he was a zombie. 

Apparently there is a cocaine theory.  Cocaine induced madness and it makes the person feel very hot, which may be why he stripped down to nothing. 

Who knew?  Cocaine is the trigger for the Zombie apocalypse.
