Oy Vay are you going to hear it today…Sorry for my absence as of late RSR readers, but my darling Sadie (Queen of all Bagel Breakers) has had me doing Honey Do’s and if my putz worked anymore, trust me, she would have enlisted him to do some major work too. What’s an old Jew in his middle 80’s supposed to do when his younger yenta wife hits her stride? I’ll tell you what, send her on a vacation! Oy to the triple Vay…. Let’s get to some boxing already.
Canelo “Catchweight” Alvarez… Good one Bradley… I saw a video the other day where he was I think at his brother’s fight against that piece of garbage Antonio MargaCHEATER who won and the Mexican fans were giving him more grief than a five day old Lox on bagels gives me.
Kell Brook… I know this one will get me plenty of emails. He’s beating “GGG” by a hard fought split decision in the range of 115-113. Crazy? Maybe, but I have won many a crazy bet over the years and placing this one too!
Rubin “Hurricane” Carter… No matter if you think he was guilty or innocent, that SOB was one tough fighter and I would take him back in the ring today over many. RIP
Kris Kristofferson… An absolute underrated actor. Here are my top five Kristofferson movies.
5. Blade Series
3. Fire Down Below
2. Semi Tough
1. A Star Is Born
My Pal Al (“Bad” Brad’s Father)… Al would be so disgusted at the injustices in our country at this time in our history. He would be the loudest voice of them all as he was in the 60’s with Martin Luther King, JR. I can remember phone calls from places many would not venture into, but Al did and at a cost many times.
The Chutzpah Award… The Chutzpah Award Posthumously goes to Myer Lansky. Years ago, I used to have breakfast on Miami Beach at a hotel I will not name, but it was on Collins Ave. There was a little elderly Jewish gentleman who sat at the lunch counter and we would kibitz. One day, he says to me. “You don’t know who I am do you?” I said, “No”… He proceeds to say, “I’m Myer Lansky”. I reply, “I’ve seen you on TV many times”. He says, “Don’t believe everything they give me credit for”. We laughed and shared many more times at the lunch counter. He was a mentsch and they don’t make guys like him anymore.Contact the Feature Writers
