and a happy new year.

Anyone get any boxing related gifts? I was given the "Muhammad and Larry" DVD and the book "Hugh McIlvanney on Boxing." Both look great.

Merry Christmas all.
Got a gold chain with a boxing glove pendant which has ''N'' in diamonds apparently used too belong to Naseem and I got the books Icons of our time: Muhammad Ali and 100 Years of Boxing: Twentieth Century in Pictures.

Merry Christmas guys.

Didn't get much really. The usual, socks, gloves and few other things :lol1:

Boxing related got a documentry on Joe Louis I've yet to see so that's good.

My 'main gift' off my partner she's said she's not giving me until after dinner so hopefully that will be something Boxing related :lol1: :lol1:

Boxing related gifts? A Pac biography by Gary Andrew Poole, that's about it.

Yeah man, just the little 4 seater stunt planes. Sat in the back when one of my mates took one before - Awsum! U get to do a few stunts, one's called zero gravity and basically u just nose dive the plane towards the ground and u feel urself just rising out of ur seat lol i'l be honest i screamed like a school girl! Which was especially embarrassing as the instructor was a stone cold little spanish chick!

Good laugh though

U get anything nice this year pal?

this is tuckerman's ravine. you cant ski there until the late spring. it's just too treacherous and cold. you also have to hike up (its not a ski area, but a hiking trail on mount washington, the highest peak in the northeast and the location of the highest sustained wind ever recorded at 230+ mph .)


unexpected. my brother works as a rep for a brand new company called "Ramp." this is the first season the company will be producing skis.


got some bindings on christmas day and they should be mounted by tomorrow!

cant wait to use em, man.
all we need is the snow haha! most of the local mountains are less than 25% covered. dismal for near january

these are the first real pair of powder skis i've owned in 20+ years skiing

first big storm and i'm calling in sick for two days

it's like clockwork each year, lol
they know exactly where i'm headed

I had a good friend of mine die up there in the early 90's. Beautiful but treacherous area.

Derrick Tinkham was my boy.
