* Boxing & The World.

If I said to you, Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Floyd Patterson, Sonny Liston, Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, Larry Holmes–I’ll bet a buck, that most of you -would know exactly what I’m talking about. Now, real fast-tell Jeff Eats the name of the current World Heavy Weight Boxing Champion.

The Point?

Not really sure, but it has something to do with computers, the internet, social media, cable and satellite tv, Facebook, Twitter- just too much stuff hitting the human brain all at once.


Jeff Eats was recently at a food truck event- 54 vying for my attention. Now don’t get me wrong, progress is good- but I fondly remember the days when it was simply a fight between the Good Humor and Bungalow Bar men.

Sometimes, too much of something is not a good thing.

Don’t know exactly where I intended to go with Boxing & The World…but it had something to do with enjoying the “moment” -not making every move you make a complicated decision and that you can’t- ever go wrong with a grilled Hebrew National Hot Dog topped with some deli mustard/ warm sauerkraut in a soft or lightly toasted hot dog bun.

For what it’s worth, Ali would have destroyed both Louis and Marciano!

    I hear you.
    No question about it that Ali would have destroyed Marciano. Marciano was way too small to handle Ali. Louis would have been a drop harder but he would have been a loser too.

    Marciano would have been knocked out within 5 rounds. He would have been way too small to beat Ali

    Ali, Ali, ALI; I’m sure many of you remember when Cassius Clay AKA Mohammad Ali was a very hated man for not fighting during the Vietnam War on grounds of his being a conscientious objector. I met him many times and sadly the last time was when he had advanced Parkinson’s disease…RIP
