    If i reach 86 I will be throwing it down my neck if I am still able - so fair play to him

    86 Yrs old, he still has his wits, can speak clearly, still has his memories and looks to be pretty healthy. What is sad about that, the attention probably helps keep him going and feeling good.

    I have spoke to old blokes the same age who were sober and sounded worse so didnt think that was too sad. After the abuse his body has taken it's good to see him as well as he is.

    For the amount of punishment that man has taken throught his career and to still be alive without any MAJOR motor-neurone disorders is nothing short of a miracle.

    Shit, we've all been there. Just minus the camera and high profile career. At 86 he's earned his keep. Cheers champ.

    Nothing sad about that. Just watched a family member half his age snuff it.

    Some of the dummies on here ain't as coherent as that.

    sad not because of any punch drunkenness which he doesnt seem to have, sad only to see as the story of ths lfe goes round and round, over and over, how we all of us do indeed pass from stage to stage, spring, summer, fall and winter. the story of life as measured at times by the state that one familiar to us is currently occupying.

    C'mon, man... there is nothing to be sad there, it is just a boxing legend gracious enough to share his wit with us fans...

    Despite the impromptu scenario, I believe Jake La Motta did carry himself very well, all things considered. In fact, on any given boxing topic; inebriated/celebrity or not, many a pug nowadays, of course minus the name and status to that of Jake's, under similar circumstances, will come across not even partially as illuminating and informative as the eighty-six year old ring giant was.

    There is no comparison. These new breeds in search of their own niche in the sport, shall pale in contrast eleven out of ten, for simply, there is no equal to pillars to the sport like the "Raging Bull", and likewise, there is no equal to legends.

    86 and drunk. That man is pretty cool.

    I doubt I will ever be drunk at 86 nor even live until 86. LaMotta has had a long innings and can still handle his booze.

    He is pretty hardcore in a funky way. Good on him.
