P.S. About this period I and my dad shook Jack Johnson's hand at a small Carnival in NYC....He wore a beret at the time, I recall...Time marches on...
Good stuff to shake hands with a legend like that.

One of my fav pics...
Has this mixture of hope and sadness.

Damn, Jack Johnson was 67 in that thread. He's in damn good shape for a 67 year old with or without a big ass head.

Taken while, Oscar De La Hoya, was visiting the American troops stationed in Iraq and Kuwait during early, March. De La Hoya, along with some young prospect boxers from Golden Boy Promotions, went to the Middle East on March 8 and visited eight military bases during the tour.

A remarkable shot.

The photo above is one of the most stunning photos I have ever seen of a boxer away from the ring. I was thinking of what the captured shot scene reminds me of....Something out of a Star Wars movie, anyone?
