    Was Roosevelt the president who liked to cut down trees with an axe an exercise?

    Shaker Boulevard in Cleveland renamed Don King Way

    Looking at that photo amazing that those who showed up consisted of two white cops, one black female cop. Looks to be about 3, 4 or five people showed up.

    Any truth to this?
    What fighter won the title on a foul?

    Max Schmeling

    Schmeling was the victor after claiming he was hit below the belt by Jack Sharkey on June 11, 1930.

    That is true and didn't Sharkey lose to Dempsey getting punched in the nuts when he was winning the contest?

    I thought so, but need to ensure:

    When Sharkey got hit below the belt in the seventh round, he complained to the referee Jack O’Sullivan. Despite a warning from O’Sullivan, Dempsey hit Sharkey four times in the same area. As Sharkey tried to get the referee’s attention, Dempsey landed a left hook to the jaw.

    Oh, the irony of it!

    This is a long shot, anyone remember what fight did Larry Merchant say "Wake me up, if a fight ever breaks out?"
    Was having a convo about funny comments from commentators.

    If I had to guess, and I do not know the answer, it would be Shannon Briggs v Liakhovich as that fight was awful.

    Maybe it was him because when Washington got caught chopping down a cherry tree he was too young and if you will allow mw the luxury of poetic justice, I think his old man was pissed.

    How did this go from boxing trivia to u.s. presidential trivia?

    I couldn't find which president did that but I also found a very nice quote from Abraham Lincoln:

    GIVE ME SIX HOURS TO CHOP DOWN A TREE AND I WILL SPEND THE FIRST 4 HOURS SHARPENING THE AXE
