    My 11 year old asked me recently who would have won this theoritical match and I had a difficult time answering.

    I think that Ali was a much better boxer, but no one in history punched harder than Tyson. That would have been some fight.

    Their earlier stuff was great. Paradise theater, equinox, crystal ball. I still have several of their albums on vinyl.

    It's a very popular movie in this part of the country. Best movie ever? I don't know about that.

    Some day you will realize just how wrong you are. It is inevitable.

    I'm not from the PacNW originally. I remember this movie being out, but never heard anything about it until we moved up here. It is a regional gold standard. I've seen it several times because it's always on for the kids at a house party or projected on a building in the summer at a neighborhood outdoor movie gathering.

    It's ... fine. o_O

    Tyson was a wrecking ball earlier in his career. A big reason why he was such an explosive puncher was because he always had clean shots. He always slipped, got to the right angle, and just unleashed. His head, shoulders, and feet never stopped moving.

    Then it because unquestionable that he was the hardest puncher in the world and he could knock anyone out with one punch. What did he do? He stopped moving, stood straight up and became a glorified punching bag for anyone with a decent reach. Watch his movement against Spinks, Holmes, etc. and compare it to vs Lewis, Holyfield, etc. Sure those guys were much better competition, but just focus on Tyson’s movement. It became relatively nonexistent. I honestly think he wouldn’t have had much of a problem with those guys if he kept moving like he did earlier on in his career. D’Amato, Atlas and Rooney kept him hungry and motivated. After D’Amato passed away, Tyson slowly surrounded himself with “yes men.” Guys who wouldn’t challenge his work ethic and training methods. He allegedly trained less than a week for the Buster Douglas fight. And it caught up with him.

    As I read this, I was putting toothpaste on my toothbrush. Squeezing the middle of the tube to do so.

    Dude.
    Toilet paper is supposed to hang from the front.

    There are legitimate sanitary reasons for this.
    Here's the patent. Sorry.
