Oy Vay are you going to hear it today… Sadie, Sadie, my little chickadee. For two weeks, I have tried to pen this column, but everytime I tried, Sadie had me popping Viagra because she claimed she had a midlife sexual urge. Midlife? Sadie is in her late 70’s! I am chalking those rumblings up to a bad case of gas. Oy to the triple Vay…. My Putz putzed out years ago. Fact of life. But it has its memories I can tell you that. Enough about putz’s, let’s talk some boxing before Sadie comes up with something else that Ole Packy can’t do anymore!
Gennady “GGG” Golovkin… Look I like the kid, I do. But I know the claim is nobody will face him. Well, maybe his management needs to step things up and have him be more aggressive on putting people out on the block. It has worked many times for other fighters.
Manny Pacquiao… Prior to “ShoulderGate” and Gay Slurs I liked the kid. But his mouth wrote checks his ass couldn’t cash. Look at his welcome back to the PI after his win over Firehose Bradley! Nobody gave a crap. Those streets were lined with PacNuts and now, you are lucky if you get two nuts as in one guy’s sac waving the PI flag welcoming him home and celebrating his retirement. Let’s be fair, sure he should shut his mouth, but he was a damn good fighter, so I’m wishing him the best in retirement.
James Coburn… He was one heck of an actor. Here are my top five Coburn movies.
4. The Great Escape
3. Our Man Flint
2. Bite The Bullet
1. Hard Times
My Pal Al (“Bad” Brad’s Father)…. April 12th was Al’s 88th birthday. I read the tribute Bradley did to him and was moved to tears. Al loved birthdays, but loved others more so he could surprise them. Clear your bladder for this story. It’s 1963 and I turned 33. Al is out in Cali and calls me Person to Person. I pick up, Al says, “Packy, pick me up at Miami International Airport at 7:00 PM tonight.” I am waiting at the gate (you used to be able to do that) and out walks two airline stewardess that were Va Va Voom and in between them standing 5’2, is Al! They walk up to me and say, “Boom Boom” come up with please to security right now”. I know something is about to happen, but no clue what. We get to the security office and Al says to the stewardesses, do it”! These two Va Va Voom broads proceed to strip and on their boobs, one had Happy Birthday and the other had “Boom Boom”. They close me in for a motorboat and Al is on the floor crying! To say I was not thrilled with my Birthday surprise that year, is an understatement. I truly miss my Pal Al….
The Chutzpah Award… The Chutzpah Award Goes to Damien Lewis. This guy is a throwback to actors of yesteryear who had balls to take career making characters. He was the show Homeland and now on Billions, as Bobby Axlerod, he owns the role. I cannot wait until next season to see where the storyline goes. The season finale was outstanding.Contact the Feature Writers
