    I really enjoyed reading your article. You put a lot of work into that! Nicely done. :thumbsup:

    A few lines you wrote that I especially enjoyed...

    -Fighting Rocky on the inside was like sticking your upper body into a frontload dryer full of bricks.
    -This is high risk, high reward. One missed shoulder roll means making out with Suzy Q.
    -For the last few weeks of his camp he was dead to the world. His wife and children weren't allowed. Daddy had a war to go to.
    -What he had he had a lot of. He had utter determination. He had unreasonable stamina. Compete insensibility to pain. Nothing stopped Rocky coming forward. Even his nose getting torn off.
