The Fight of the Century

Day off (actually: night off) from the joe job today. Was sitting on the couch reading a newish book about the first Frazier/Ali fight. Tia came in. Saw me sitting there. Said: "You know, it's not going to turn out any different this time."

I had to laugh. Always good to have a reality check handy (I'm still going to read the book, though: The Fight of the Century by Michael Arkush).

P.S. Just so you know -- In a world of Ali fans, I'm still a Joe Frazier Man. Smokin' Joe. He did his talking in the ring.
