Default just seen Joe Calzaghe on GMTV a few minutes ago...

He was being interviewed & he was sitting on the arm of his couch with all the belts he has won on the seats of his couch. I didnt catch the whole interview, but once again Joe was talking about being bullied at school.

The presenter was asking him questions about it & Joe was a bit uncomfortable, but I have to take my hat off to Calzaghe for admitting he got bullied as a youngster. That takes as much balls IMO as winning a world title. Its great to see Joe proving that you can overcome ****ers who try to take you down in life.

Between Joe Calzaghe beating the bullies to become a british legend & reading about fellow ESB'er Stuey climbing back into the ring with a pacemaker attached, its enough to bring a tear to the eye of this scotsman!

So before I do, Im offski. Catch you all next time Im on.

Calzaghe is an inspiration to anyone who has had to deal with wankers trying to bring you down.

Goooo Joe!

Exactly. us scots have our own unique way of looking at life that only fellow scots can understand...

& of course, Im only human. When I have had a few tumblers of wine, I can get a bit emotional. & yesterday, reading about posters coming back from adversity, hearing Joe talk about the shit he had to go through as a kid to get to where he is now... Im not ashamed to admit it tugged on the old heart strings a bit.
