    Lovely picture Mick. There was a jazz opera written about the legendary Griffith, called "Champion" I think. It was an American production. Not sure if it's still running anywhere or if there is any video footage of it but now he will be remembered as a great fighter by boxing fans everywhere, and a few others who do not follow the sport.

    Question.

    Exactly what race or ethnicity is Latino/Chulo? Never heard of it that's why I'm asking.

    @Greenbeanz the opera just recently premiered in June I'm sure it's still showing...

    I watched Ring Of Fire today in pieces throughout the day as time permitted and it's still #2 in my top 10 list of boxing documentaries.

    Busting my balls a little bit... and then you tell me relax...
    All I did was play along with you and you're telling me relax.
    Kinda defeats the purpose of busting someones balls and then asking them to relax once they play along doesn't it?

    Also I don't got PC on anyone, never have and never will the trash usually takes itself out in time.

    I'm 1/5th Mexican, 2 and 3/4ths American and 5 and 7/8ths Puerto Rican kind of a mixed mutt as we all are nowadays.

    So what's good with you? Are you 100% Rican? Where do you stay at? (I don't need an address a city is fine hell I'll accept a state if you're that shy)
