16 Tasks of the Festive Season: Square 15 - Boxing Day


Tasks for St. Stephen’s Day/Boxing Day: Show us your boxes of books! –OR– If you have a cat, post a picture of your cat in a box.

 

The current feline denizen of my home -- Teddy -- won't be caught dead in anything enclosing him, but Holly loved boxes and was, consequently, in heaven whenever we were moving.  Here are a few impressions from the preparations of our "big" move from California to Germany:

Boxing is a science while MMA is a maul: "McGregor vs. Mayweather" Part 2

 

"Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."
 
 
In Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5 by William Shakespeare
 
As predicted, Mayweather knocked it out of the park. Mayweather controlled it from the 4th. The discipline of boxing is much purer than MMA and McGregor showed his novice skills early. I liked the way Mayweather just put his gloves up and went inside like a relentless zombie attack. Conor just couldn't figure that one out and had no power inside. He was drawn into a trap and he was dumb and greedy enough to fall for it. His cash mattress will cradle him tonight though, soft and luxurious enough to sooth his bruised ego. If Federer retires I’ll try to convince him and the then Badminton or table tennis world champion to play the Ultimate Tennis Match at Wimbledon’s centre court. This wouldn’t be more ridiculed than this "fight" or shall we call it scam. The only thing that made it vaguely interesting was that McGregor is younger, stronger, faster and able to verbally sell a fight, but it showed that experience, conditioning and ring craft can be more important attributes in a boxing bout.

Boxing is a science while MMA is a maul: "McGregor vs. Mayweather"

 

Watching the weigh-in, it does seem that McGregor has some major and unresolved anger management issues. Did Mayweather steal Conor's bike (the shiny new red 5-speed racer he just got for his birthday), or say something horrid and beastly about Conor's Granny (so spiteful, she's such a lovely thing)? Well what I saw was a heavily tattooed man with a semi erection screaming a lot , and a black guy ,slighting shorter , smiling and appearing to enjoy himself. Did I miss something ?

 

If you're into Boxing and MAA, read on.
