I haven't made a boxing post in awhile

Since I haven't made a boxing post in awhile, here goes:

I sure wish boxing was on TV like it was in the 60's, 70's, and early
80's.  It seemed like boxing was more visable and more competitive.

They don't make women like Lola Falana anymore either. And what ever
happened to Super***?

I've posted this before, but here goes again

It is this glamour of the past, I suppose, that makes old folk talk
so
much nonsense about the days when they were young.  The world appears
to have been a very superior sort of place then, and things were more
like what they ought to be.  Boys were boys then, and girls were very
different.  Also winters were something like winters, and summers not
at all the wretched-things we get put off with nowadays.  As for the
wonderful deeds people did in those times and the extraordinary events
that happened, it takes three strong men to believe half of them.

I like to hear one of the old boys telling all about it to a party of
youngsters who he knows cannot contradict him.  It is odd if, after
awhile, he doesn't swear that the moon shone every night when he was a
boy, and that tossing mad bulls in a blanket was the favorite sport at
his school.

It always has been and always will be the same.  The old folk of our
grandfathers' young days sang a song bearing exactly the same burden;
and the young folk of to-day will drone out precisely similar nonsense
for the aggravation of the next generation.  "Oh, give me back the
good old days of fifty years ago," has been the cry ever since Adam's
fifty-first birthday.  Take up the literature of 1835, and you will
find the poets and novelists asking for the same impossible gift as
did the German Minnesingers long before them and the old Norse Saga
writers long before that.  And for the same thing sighed the early
prophets and the philosophers of ancient Greece.  From all accounts,
the world has been getting worse and worse ever since it was created.
All I can say is that it must have been a remarkably delightful place
when it was first opened to the public, for it is very pleasant even
now if you only keep as much as possible in the sunshine and take the
rain good-temperedly."

That was written in the 19th century by Jerome K Jerome.

That's because you can't write like they used to in the old days.
