Whomever the morons in the BWAA submit as nominees. These rump swabs are clueless. And they don't know shit about history. Or Asian fighters. Or ones from the UK. You feeling me on this?
But have fun. It's not what it used to be. Now they even have security guys walking around. It used to be very fan-friendly. I hope it still is. You can have a lot of fun and get great photos at the Cocktail Party and the memorabilia show is neat. Also, it's kind of interesting watching some of the suck-ups mingling about like the sickening syncophants they are. The parade is OK but it's usually hotter than hell so bring something cold to drink. And have a good camera and maybe alawn chair to sit on.
Where are you staying? Graziano's has good pizza and is across the street. Out by Lake Oneida, there are some interesting spots. The best plave is Vernoin Downs. Lots of the guys hang out at Graziano's and gamble in Verona at the Turning Stone Casino. I once met Oscar in the elevator there. Christ was he ever small. But he was very accesible and humble. By the same token, Norton is verg big.
The best part of the weekend is seeing and talking with the boxers. Guysd like Harry Arroyo, Alen Minter, Jeff Fenech, etc. Hagler is unaccessible but not SRL. If you are lucky, they might engage in a rematch.
The weekend is what you make of it. Plenty of things to choose from., Hearns will be the BIG show this year.
