Any fans here? I read in the news yesterday, he was found dead in his apartment in Brazil, and his wife is being charged with the murder.

Yeah I seen that a few days ago. I loved watching him fight in his hay day. back in the late 90's against Ward. Those were some of the best fights in history! The guy was a brawler, RIP!

Yes, the three fight series between Ward and Gatti is some of the best in the history of boxing. They wouldn't stop a Gatti fight, because they never knew when he would come back - unbelievable. And also unbelievable that his life would come to an end the way it did.

When Gatti would fight Ward, a bunch of us would get together every time. Man, those were some good fights!

I heard that they had both been drinking, he had some head trauma and was strangled with the strap from a purse? First McNair, now Gatti, man, some of these sports dudes hook up with some real fire breathers!

Yes, apparently they had been out drinking. A friend said they had not been getting along anyway. The police said she was in the room with him for several hours before she notified anybody, and there was no evidence of anyone else being there.

I'd like to get a CD of that three fight series...

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
