      ...and nothing connected to boxing.

      Indeed.  I was thinking we would see some of this from Obama, some day.  I stopped holding my breath a long time ago though.

        I'm probably one of the few old boxing fans on the site!

          ...when Max (huge boxing fan) was still hosting?  The final question on one show was...name the greatest athlete over 40 years old.

          Kevin Blackistone (IIRC) named Archie "The Old Mongoose" Moore, who had a great career through his 40's.

          Woody Paige said, 'Okay, since you mentioned boxing, I have no chance whatsoever.  So I'll go with a great performer, who's remained active well into his 70's....Hugh Hefner.'

          I'm more in Woody Paige territory than Max territory.  :)

            Didn't see that one.  To be fair, Hef didn't spend his career getting punched in the face.  There may have been a few pretty rough pillow fights though!
