Hey Fight Freaks, when Froch-Dirrell is over, I'll be right here and we'll chat about the Super Six and anything else you want to discuss. Enjoy the rest of the fight.
Hey Freaks, I'm back. What a night of fights. Let's get right to it!
Boy...Arthur Abraham really let it all hang out tonight!
Not really. Not until the last round!
Hey Dan- Im sorry but I feel like Jermain Taylor is DONE- stick a fork in him. I think he seriously needs to consider retirement before he starts to sound like Roger Mayweather
Jermain has something thinking to do after such a brutal knockout. Two bad KO losses in a row, although he fought a pretty good fight. Just can't seem to finish strong.
Do you think Taylor will continue in the tournament?
I do think he will go on at least to the next fight, which will be against Andre Ward.
I don't know what was uglier- Arthur Abrahams entrance outfit or Andre Dirrell's boots.
Imagine them both on the same guy?
What are the chances that this bad decision throws a wrench into the fight of the tourney?
It wasn't a bad decision. There's a difference between a bad decision and a legitimately close fight. I also had Froch winning 114-113.
Do you agree with the decision in the Froch fight?
how do you feel about that dirrell fight? Thought he one, thought the ref did a poor job of controlling the fight.
The ref was not so good but Dirrell did it to himself by running and holding so much early on. He gave up too many rounds. Had he fought like he did in 10-12, he could have won the fight.
Has there ever been another top level fighter who has gotten kayoed in the last seconds of two consecutive fights?
I'm sure there are but I can't think of any off the top of my head.
DTM, do you agree that to be chmapion you really have to BEAT the champion? It seems to me Dirrel edged it but he is the challenger and there were many close rounds.
No I don't agree with that nonsense. When the fight starts you score 12 rounds one by one. Period. The notion of "taking the title" is BS. You have to win 7 rounds.
Did Showtime really need to zoom in on Arthur Abra-Can.
That was hilarious. I wish they would have spent more time zooming in on Froch's grilfriend.
What do you think would have happened if Dirrell fought the whole fight like he did in the 11th?
He woulda won.
Do you see Carl Froch winning the Tournament?
No, never have. But I give him credit for beating a very tough guy to fight.
i thought the tourney's been pretty lame so far. neither fight was very good except the last couple rounds of each.
Figures you'd find something to complain about because you always do.
Dan, I don't know how I have overlooked this...what would happen in the case of a "no decision?" Or even, for that matter, a DQ?
Those things are covered in the contratcs. A no decision is a draw so each guy would get a point (although not a no decision because of a failed drug test). A DQ is simply a win for the guy who wins and he gets one point.
Is King Arthur is contention for KO of the year?
It goes on the list for sure.
Do you see anyone but Arthur winning this tournament? I dont its going to be easy for him to get out of this tournament in a clean way
Why don't we see what happens in Kessler-Ward first?
Total disagree with you, I thought Dirrell landed the harder cleaner punches. Did see froch land much at all. Dirrell won the fight even though he did hold far too much.
You can disagree. So did one judge. I saw Dirrell give up too many rounds by running and holding. But it was a legit close fight and I don't think Dirrell hurt himself much at all. He'll win some fights in this thing.
Dan, put your tv on mute, rewatch and rescore that fight.
You are entitled to your opinion, as am I. I had Froch winning by one point and I stand by it. I don't need to (or want to) rewatch the fight. You go rewatch it and let me know how it turned out.
Why won't Abraham engage more. Seemed like he could have had that ko by mid rounds if he wanted it.
That's the way Abraham fights. He is tremendous late in fights. He has tons of late KOs.
dirrell would beat him if they fight agian
If you had wings you'd be a bird. If, if, if... Whatever.
I see why Ward is glad he doesn't have to fight in Europe
Any chance Joe Calzaghe comes back to fight the winner of this tournament?
I think it's possible, but obviously it would have to be at 175.
did you want froch to win
LOL. I didn't care who won and, in fact, I picked Dirrell to win ahead of time.
What were the punch stats? I didn't see any on the broadcast. Who was more accurate and who landed more?
Showtime does not keep punch stats because CombuBox is exclusive with HBO in terms of premium cable fights.
Bat Phone. Be right back.
Hey guys, I'm back. That was Lou DiBella on the phone from Germany.
Lou said Jermain had a severe concussion and is in the hospital for precautionary reasons. He has had short term memory loss. Lou said he'll stay in the hospital for several days as a precaution. No decision has been made about his future in the tournament.
If Taylor pulls out, does the replacement fighter take Taylor's 0 score?
Do you have the Yankee game on now?
Yes. Of course.
What do you think will happen with Jermain?
Really don't know but I actually think he'll probably withdraw now.
if Taylor cannot continue who is in line to take his place?
Probably Allan Green.
How do the semis work? 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3 based on points?
Yes, the semis are seeded.
Prayers for Taylor- He needs to RETIRE for his and his family sake....
I think we saw tonight why Pavlik's people never wanted to make that fight with Abraham.
You could be right about that.
I thought every fighter that has been KOed needed to be checked by a doctor. Is going to a hospital an rare thing?
It's not rare to go the hospital. It is to be admitted and stay for several days.
Do you think Allan Green in the same class as all of these fighters?
He's a legitimate guy to be in there if a replacement is needed. Bute is very unlikely.
Mosley vs Berto done deal yet?
No, but Lou said likely within the next week.
I think we're in for another ugly fight between Abraham and Dirrell. Abraham's style is similar to Froch without all the fouling.
We could be in for an ugly fight no matter who Dirrell fights, but Dirrell has that speed and power and he can box. He might make it ugly but it works very well for him most of the time.
Do you think Froch's arms are sore from patting himself on the back after tonite's fight?
Now THAT is funny.
DO you think after this tournament is over they will do this every year? And do you think it should be in different weight classes every year?
How about we get through one of them first. Plus, this thing will go about 18 months anyway.
How did the Love Child do tonight?
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, the Love Child. Julio won a shutout six-round decision last night. It was on Telemundo.
LETS GO YANKEES! They sure are making it dramatic this playoffs.
Tell me about it. This game is killing me.
As Teddy always says it takes two to hold in a fight. You can't put all the blame on Dirrell.
You are 100 percent right. But I do put most of the blame on him. He was going right into Froch and tying up or leaning on him.
America's best hope in the tourney: Ward or Dirrell?
That's a tough one. Dirrell already lost his opening fight and Ward is in very tough with Kessler, the toughest first-round match. Really a toss up.
How did you have the Taylor fight scored before the KO?
I had Abraham ahead 105-103. I gave Taylor 1-4 and 11 and Abraham the rest plus there was a point deduction from Taylor in the sixth round.
Froch threw a lot of rabbit punches.
Yes, he did. And elbows and hit on the break. It was a pretty chippy fight. Dirrell did some of that as well.
Did showtime urge espn not to report the outcome of the abraham fight? It was not up on the website till well after the fight?
I have no idea. I shut off my cell, did not go on my computer and made my wife screen all the calls coming in so I could watch Abraham-Taylor without knowing the result.
Andre Dirrel won the fight!
Actually, he lost a split decision.
antonio tarver called froch "crotch" one of the funniest things I heard
That was pretty funny.
Did you agree with the point deduction towards Dirrell?
I didn't have a problem with a point deduction from either one of them but at that exact moment it seemed odd.
Can we please ban that ref who was trying to count down Taylor? It was clear Taylor needed help immediately
That's a good point. I agree. He was out. Coulda counted to 100.
Seriously, can anyone in this tournament neutralize the defense and power of Abraham?
Guess we will find out.
Everybody knows Dirrell won. You just lost credability bozo.
Actually EVERYBODY doesn't think he won, including me and two of the judges.
Is Tarver as good as Lennox?
He's already better as an announcer.
I think this tournament is really missing Bute and Pascal...two more titles could have unified the division
You're not that smart are you? Pascal is a light heavyweight titleholder. Bute has another fight scheduled. And as good as Bute is, it's not like he's so overwhelming he just HAS to be in. The only reason you even think that I would imagine is because he happens to have a belt.
I don't recall Lennox calling anyone "Croch".
I recall him calling somebody Malignoogiaey though.
Dan, who has the best "chin" in this tourney?
I think Abraham's chin is terrific. I think Kessler's is also very good. Froch's is good, although he was down against Taylor in April and Dirrell rocked him a few times.
Dan, do you think the winner of Andrade-Bute should replace Taylor?
That would be fine if Taylor is out, but Showtime has clearly stated that Green is the first alternate.
Yanks have winning run on third with two out in the bottom of the ninth! Hold on a minute.
Damn, Cano couldn't do it!
Who has a better chance of wining...The Cubs winning their first world series next year or Jermain Taylor winning this tournament?
Lets bring Kelly Pavlik in the mix to replace Taylor.
Why? He's a middleweight and has a massive fight in December. Pavlik isn't going to be in the tourney.
Is Showtime anti-Canadian?
That's the dumbest thing I've seen in this chat tonight. Of course not. They televised some of Bute's fights. They've done several fights from Canada (more than HBO, for example).
So Dan the Man, you vote for Naz on your ballot yet? Don't forget to do it!
I haven't done my ballot yet. It's due in a couple of weeks.
What do you think of Adamek fighting Golota? Desperate Adamek?
Not desperate. It's called a big payday when there is no other really big payday. And for Adamek, he can test heavyweight, get paid big and not risk his cruiser title. I totally understand it since the Hopkins fight couldn't get done.
Do you think King Arthur can make a name in the US?
If he keeps getting knockouts like that and his fights are seen here, I think he can gain something of a name. But it's hard because there is no big US star for him to fight.
Joe CAzlaghe is a fraud!!! Fight nobodies then beat Kessler and past their prime Roy and B-Hop. Legend my a**!!!!
Do you have anger management issues?
Dan, had Hopkins come down to 168, do you think he would have won this competition?
I don't think he would have any interest in entering. Not nearly enough money, too many young guys to tangle with. BHop has made his legacy and made his money. For what purpose would he be in this thing? Please think before you ask.
What kind of purse is there for these Super 6 fights? I don't remember seeing any details.
I don't know the exact numbers but at least for these first round of bouts Taylor I am pretty sure made the most, probably in the 1.3 neighborhood.
Kessler VS The "King" will be the championship fight! By far they are the best two out of the bunch!
I think when the Super Six was put together they were purposely kept apart in the round-robin part of the tourney. I think they could very well meet in the final and would not at all be surprised.
Did you sense anything wrong with Jermain during the post-fight interview? Obviously he shouldn't have been on camera after that.
I didn't. He spoke clearly and seemed OK other than a swollen eye and being disappointed. But a lot of times if a fighter has an issue you don't see it. It takes tests to reveal issues.
How bout a tourney with the best of the batamweight and lighweight divisions. They would be action packed bouts.
You could pick any number of divisions and have exciting fights with a field of six guys. You could add 122 to your list or 140 too.
I just wanna take my hat off to showtime once again, a great show they put on tonight........Showtime is back on the boxing map. This was a great night of boxing.
Did you know the 2 & 3 rounds of the tourney have already been drawn???
Ummm, yeah, since the day I wrote about the tournament happening back in July.
Do you think taylor has made enough money to retire comfortably.
If he does retire, he has made tons of money. Probably at least $15 million, probably more.
At least Froch won in the hottest wife or girl friend category, because he sure didn't win the fight...
I don't understand how anyone could've wanted to see Dirrell rewarded for repeatedly grabbing Froch around the waist and dropping to one knee to avoid exchanges. Dirrell wasn't in there to fight.
No Dan... im saying the match ups have been officially drawn.
They've been set since Day 1 back in July.
Are you going to the Cotto-Pacquaio fight? Wondering why you weren't at either one of these two fights.
Of course, I will be at Cotto-Pacquiao.
where can we find a list of all future round matchups, and are dates already set?
Look on the boxing page and look at the story called "Primer" that I wrote the other day. It lists all the matches and approximate dates and locations.
Note to second basemen everywhere: When turning two, you still gotta touch the bag.
Is Quintana Clottey official?
Yes, it's set for the Pavlik-Williams undercard.
Do you have any idea if and when Dirrell vs Froch compubox numbers willl be available?
They won't be because they didn't track the fight.
What do you think of Odlanier Solis? Does he have a shot to unseat one of the Klitschkos in the next few years?
I liked how he attacked Barrett. He needs a bit better conditioning, but he has a lot of talent and looks like he can bang. But at this stage of his career, the Klitschkos would be too much. He needs a top contender to fight and beat first.
what about sakio bika surely he should get a go before green
I'd be fine with Bika in there as well, but why does he deserve it so much more than Green? They're about on the same level.
Dan, I know you mentioned in Friday's chat that you covered your first live fight in 1997 I believe. Who was the main event on the card? Any fighter that actually became known or was it just a small club show?
It was 1996. The main event was Buddy McGirt vs. George Heckley in Saratoga Springs, NY.
Bigger Robbery Dirrell or Malignaggi?
A one-point split decision is not a robbery when it was clearly a close fight, so obviously Malignaggi was bigger, especially given the dumb 118 scorecard turned in.
Why are people saying Dirrell got robbed? The guy ran practically the entire night landing a few punches here and there and held too friggin much and goldbricked taking a knee so he wouldn't be hit. You don't win fights like that, PERIOD!
it wasnt a close dan can u honestly say with a straight face that froch looked good? he got taken to school
Did I say he looked good? Neither guy looked but the right guy got the decision.
Do you think these first two bouts say anything with regard to the difference between US fighters vs European fighters?
Obviously, the Europeans are better and more experienced in this tournament overall.
I agree with Walter. Ran too much.
I know you had Froch winning, but do you think 115-112 is too wid a margin?
I had him winning 114-113. 115-112 is one round difference and I can see that.
If Dirrell got awarded the decision, you'd have Froch homers coming out of the woodworks crying foul. Get over it. Close fight and someone had to win.
No one can say it was a hometown decision either for Froch. All three judges were from other countries so anyone thinking it was a hometown decision need to do their homework.
Dan. I feel like you haven't said much about Ward and mentioned Kessler and Abraham a lot. I actually have Ward going far in tourney. Do you like his chances?
Do you read what I write? I think Andre has a great shot to go far in this thing. He has a very tough first bout, but he also has two more after that at least.
Any news on Z Gorres? I saw that Arum signed him.
He is on an upcoming Azteca card on Nov. 13 in Vegas the night before Cotto-Pacman.
Dan, you say the right guy won, but you scored the fight by a one point margin--one that included a controversial deduction. Why are you acting like it's so hard to believe that one single round went another way?
I'm not acting like anything. Had Dirrell won it on a close decision I wouldn't have complained but he didn't. He got a point taken away and it hurt him. He should have had a point taken away earlier for the excessive holding.
Never saw Abraham fight on TV till tonight. Good defense, and he punches like a beast to the body. Can't see any of the other guys beating him.
Punches like a beast to the face also.
Even in losing, I think Jermain showed heart and class. He was fighting up until the very end - unlike Andre Dirrell who held, ran, flopped, etc.
Dan, do you think Kevin Johnson has a chance to rise to the top of the heavyweight division?
No, because I think Klitschko will handle him.
Abraham's great, but he gives away too many rounds early a lot. He doesn't want to have a four-round hole against Kessler.
I couldn't agree more. But when you can erase anyone with one punch, you're never out of it.
Dan, do you think Mayweather will ever fight Mosely?
I really don't know. I would hope so eventually.
Hey Dan, although I felt Dirrell won the fight, I also feel it was his fault he lost the decision because he kept the fight close by holding and running and not using his superior athletic and boxing ability consistently enough to dominate each round like he could've. However at least he can learn from this loss and improve.
Finally, an intelligent comment about it.
How do you think Devon Alexander matches up against his fellow trinket holders at jr Welterweight?
Very well I think. I'd favor him against Urango and probably Khan. Bradley would be tough but a good fight.
Dan - I never saw Kiss w/original members (have you?) If so, how does this version w/Thommy Thayer, etc. compare?
I have. The originals are great but I enjoy the current lineup also. Frankly, Eric Singer is better than Peter Cris anyway in my opinion.
Hey Dan I think that Juan Manual Lopez lookes vunerable and that is why they are not bringin up a mathup with Gamboa as much as before his last bout.
You're wrong. Gamboa is still the intended match for the summer. They were always intended to fight in 2010 against different opponents before fighting each other.
Tyson v Holyfield 3 who wins?
They didn't look like they were in the mood to fight when they were on Oprah on Friday.
I need to change my pants.
Its an A-bomb from AROD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How come B-Hop & Lights Out never fought? Didn't they almost do it, why did it fall through?
They were close several years ago and then BHop changed his mind when he was really upset with the deal with King.
A-BOMB from AROD. Let's end this so I can got to bed!
A-Rod is definitely in beast mode in these playoffs! Even though he was 0-4 before. Who will remember that now.
"I need to change my pants" - next time a freak says something disturbing please remember that quote
Dan - speaking of Peter Criss, did I read the CNN ticker correctly (on Friday) that he'd had a bout w/breast cancer?
Yes and thankfully, he is OK.
Are you chatting until the game ends?
Let's see how long it goes!
Flyout in 29 other parks
Then thank goodness they are at Yankee Stadium, where the other team has an equal chance to hit home runs also.
I'm watching the Yankee game and didnt notice I was 2 minutes behind on the DVR, so when you posted AROD I thought your where calling his shot. LOL
Hey Dan sounds like we both have good wives 2 hours of Boxing and now Baseball aint live great.?
Hell yeah. My wife is watching the game too.
Dave from Boston can go weep with his other inferior dirty red sox fans.
Do you think at this point in time Roy Jones deserves a fight with Bernard Hopkins. Even though he beat a washed up Jeff Lacey
There is no such thing as "deserve" in this instance. They both want to fight. They are both legends. They can make more money against each other than anyone else. And there are quite a few people who will be interested in seeing them fight each other. So what's the problem?
When will Don King retire as a promoter?
Never. He'll promote until he dies.
Are you going to Hopkins fight in Philly? i got floor seats and wondering what you think the atmosphere will be like
I plan to be there. I'll probably come up the day of the fight and then head to AC afterward for the Pavlik-Williams fight, which is a couple of days later.
My grapes are sour...
Obviously. Choke on them.
What do you think of Taylor's promotor and the job he has done? Don't you think a name of this magnitude didn't need a tournament and he shoulda fought some lesser opponents to build his resume back up?
Not at all. I think Lou did a great job getting Jermain big fights for good money even though he had lost 3 of 4 before tonight.
Good point Dan B-Hop and Roy Jones are past their primes, but I am still excited to see them get it on again.
the problem with Hopkins - Jones, is that Hopkins-Dawson is a much more important fight to the sport. That's one reason why MMA is very popular- they ALWAYS make the biggest most important fights
Hopkin-Dawson generates 5 cents and not much mainstream interst. Jones-Hopkins 2 generates 10s of millions and worldwide interest.
What is a good strategy for beating king arthur?
Borrow Triple H's sledgehammer I think.
That was for you Dan. By the way - I thought Dirrell won.
any US tv outlet for Khan-Salita?
Not at this time.
Since there was so much speculation regarding a fight between Pavlik and Abraham, who do you think would win a fight between the two of them (at either 160 or 168)?
I think Abraham would have to be the favorite at either weight.
any chance you'll be attending the next Scorpions concert based on their performance during Abraham's entrance?
Probably not, but I've always liked the Scorps.
dan, in hindsight, do you think it was wise for jermain to be matchedagainst abraham for fight # 1 as opposed to going up against less physical guys in ward or dirrell?
Well somebody was going to have to fight Abraham.
Had Taylor drank his urine, he would have had the energy to finish like I always do.
hey Dan go yankees!!! do you think Pavlik has the power to hurt Williams?
Pavlik has the power to hurt anyone if he lands his best shots.
Pavlik has the power to hurt anyone if he lands his best shots.
Trust someone from Boston to make that irrelevant point. Enjoy the offseason dave.
Dan, do you agree with Antonio Tarver's comment that whoever won the Super 6 would be not only a big name in the sport but also a mainstream star?
That may be a reach. In boxing, the winner will be a star. But to be a mainstream star, it will depend who wins, what kinds of fights they have and if people are watching. It's hard to become a mainstream start fighting only on Showtime, which has a universe of about 15 million.
Drinking piss jokes will never get old.
You are so right.
Does Danny Green have a chance against Roy Jones?
Do you think Showtime has marketed this tournament well enough, seeing as thought he average sports fan would have no clue about a Super 6 Boxing Tournament?
Showtime has done what it can do and done it well. I am disappointed in ESPN's television side because as far as I know there has been zero in advance of one of the biggest events in the sport. Not even a brief preview on ESPNEWS or anything. Really disappointed in that.
How dose Abraham not make Sportcenters top 10?!
Actually, we did not have the right to use the highlight until after the fight airs on the West Coast.
Hey Dan Brian made a good point I bought a USA Today friday(your old stoping ground) and they had nothing on the Super Six I was dissapointed they need you back.
I do appreciate it, but they had almost a full page on the tourney in Thursday's paper. I still read it every day.
Dano, Assuming Kessler wins against Ward, will the winner of Kessler/Froch in round 2 win both belts?
Correct. It will be a unification bout.
Going to the Bottom of the 12th . . .I think the Yankees end it here.
This game is killing me.
When will Sportscenter be able to use Froch highlights? Oh, that's right... he didn't have any. Well I guess you can show the post-fight interview. His unwarranted cockiness could be considered a highlight.
Alright, sit tight for a minute, I gotta watch Jeter bat.
How long will it be until Deontay Wilder will fight for the heavyweight title?
Years (if ever, obviously).
Yeahhhhhhhh, Damon! Winning run on third!
Apparently Showtime didn't think this was and important fight. they didn't even air it live on west coast.
They never air any fights live on the West Coast. Get a cable system or dish that offers Showtime East and your problems are solved.
OK, bases loaded, ARod coming up with the bases loaded, two out, bottom of the 12th. This is better than the fights tonight.
Popped him up and we go to the freakin; 13th inning.
If the Yanks win it, I'm shaving Nikolai Valuev's back. You can hold me to that.
Dan I like the multi-tasking!!! Freak King REIGNS!!!!
It ain't easy.
Maybe Peter Gammons will do a boxing chat.
That would be cool.
Good point but it seems crazy to spend all this money to put an event together and then show it to half the country on delay.
That's what Showtime always does and it works for them.
Dan,Which fight tonight did you find more entertaining?
Abraham-Taylor was a better fight to watch in my opinion.
No offense to Jermain, but how incredible is it that he "beat" Hopkins twice?
He did beat him twice. Can never take those wins away from him.
Dirrell all 3 fights on the road. Does he have the power to put guys away? I dont see him getting any close decisions.
Not true. He fights Abraham next early next year in the United States. And after that he fights Andre Ward and they are both Americans.
Dan aside from DLH, do you know any other boxer who is actually successful in promoting. It seems everyone who is or was a fighter wants to get into promoting, but DLH is the only one who seems to have done a good job at it.
He's got the biggest company and has had the most success, but, for example, Roy Jones' company has promoted many shows that did not involve Roy. Ricky Hatton's company has begun promoting some nice shows in the UK.
I wonder how many of the judges scored 9-9 in the tenth after Dirrell rocked Froch?
I don't know how the judges had that roud but I had it 9-9.
Will Celestino Caballero vs Juan Manuel Lopez happen? If so, who wins?
I doubt it at this point with the way the Top Rank folks are talking. Arum made it sound like Juanma will move up to 126 for his next fight.
Is Abraham almost cracking the top 10 P4P list?
I have him in the top 20 but not ready for the top 10 yet.
Who do you feel has the "easiest" path to the final four of the tourney?
Noody since they all have to face three tough opponents.
Why is Caballero in top 10 and not Abraham?
He's not in my top 10.
Abraham has the easyer of the matches IMO.He does not have to fight him self!
And here we go, bottom 13. Will it ever end?
I hope this game ends before the NFL games kick off.
Dan, everyone thinks Abraham wins this tourney, but what about Kessler?
Most folks I have heard from make Kessler the favorite. But there are many excited by the way Abraham put Taylor away tonight. The odds before the tourney began had Abraham and Kessler as co-favorites to win it.
Alrighty, Hairston is on leading off!
And the bunt is good from Gardner, winning run on second, one out.
Intentional walk to Cano.
If Dirrell flies to Nottingham either 21 days or 3 weeks ago, does he win?
I think they made too much of that. Going 6 days ahead of time and staying on his own time zone was fine if you ask me.
MELKY!!!!!!!! THEEEEEEEE YANKEEEEEEEEEEEEEE WINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN! THAT WAS SICK!!!!!!!!
I need to change my pants again.
Just get some Depends.
NICE!!!!!!! Who gets the pie in the face?
YAAAAANNNNKKKKKKEEEEES WIN!! Sing it Frank: "Start spreading the news...."
OK, Freaks, I am totally spent between the two fights, a five-hour-plus game as a hardcore Yankee fan like a nearly three-hour chat. Unreal. Great night. Great chat! Thanks Freaks. Talk you all next week back at our normal time on Friday afternoon. Peace.
