Punch From the Past

I thought he had gone on long ago. Happily, no. In the Tampa Tribune sports section this a.m. there’s a photo of Jake LaMotta at the Trop before Tuesday night’s Rays game. He’s sitting in his wheelchair and looking very old and frail, while talking to Rays’ third-baseman Evan Longoria. He has a right to be a bit frail at 94.

But he wasn’t frail back when he had those great brawls with Sugar Ray (the original – not the extra crispy who later fought Roberto Duran).

Keep on keepin’ on, Champ.
