But couldn't you argue that the Rocky statue - or at least the one on display in Philly - was a leftover prop from a movie and wasn't a truly dedicated statue?

Heard a comedy bit years ago about how silly using the Rocky music is at Philly sports events. He was like, "You're never gonna go to a Bruins game, and after they score the PA comes up, 'Making your way in the world today takes everything you got...'"

After dealing with a couple friends with dementia, if I had a choice I think I would rather go the Covid-19 route.

Other than hypertension my family doesn’t really have any diseases that get passed down, but I have one grandparent on either side who has had it. My paternal Grandfather and all his siblings had it. Going through it now with my maternal Grandmother. My former boss got it young and went downhill incredibly fast. It’s awful and I hope I go of something else before I get to that point.

He was first when I was a kid. Henderson was a coke head so his numbers are dubious.

If you can hit a fastball on coke you should get bonus points.

Meh. How many of the "heroes" of the game in the 50s-70s used amphetamines?
