    Happy and Merry 

    To those who celebrate any or all of the various Western holidays and festivals, may you, your family, and friends have a happy and merry time.

    To those who don't celebrate any of these holidays and festivals, remember that you have lots of company, and you should also make sure to have a happy and merry time.

    And to those who don't respect the rights of others to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as they see fit while not harming anyone else, remember that those of us who embrace tolerance still have the freedom to whip the authoritarian asses (proverbially, of course) of you and everyone else who is as ugly, ignorant, anti-science, prejudiced, devious, divisive, and reactionary as you and your co-conspirators are.

    Very well said.

    I am someone who doesn't want to celebrate and get sucked in by those who live all year for to. Bullshit.

    Happy New Year! We have a good fight coming up a month from tomorrow...Gatti v. Damgaard.
     
    Ever notice how the ones preaching love the loudest engender so much hate and divisiveness? It's like the Martians in the wacky "Mars Attacks" announcing into bullhorns that they are here as our friends while disintegrating people.

    The first few weekends of 2006 are loaded with interesting fights.

    Sat., January 7 at the Theater at Madison Square Garden and on Showtime, Zab Judah defends his welterweight title against Carlos Baldomir. There also is a cruiserweight unification bout between WBC and WBA champ Jean Marc Mormeck vs. IBF champ O’Neil Bell. If you like little guys, veteran Will Grigsby defends his IBF junior flyweight belt vs. Ulises Solis. Two top bantamweights, Gernaro Garcia and Ricardo Vargas, fight. Unbeaten cruiserweight contender Steve Cunningham is also on the card plus others.

    Two weeks later, on January 21 in Las Vegas and on HBO pay-per-view, is Erik Morales-Manny Pacquiao 2. Also on the ppv will be the rematch between WBA junior bantamweight champ Martin Castillo and Alexander Munoz. Castillo handed Munoz his only loss when they last fought. These 115-pound guys provide a lot of action in one of boxing's best and most underrated weight divisions

    There is another card in Atlantic City on Friday, January 27, at the Tropicana, the night before the Gatti fight. This time it is strawweights, with Muhammad Rachman vs. Omar Soto for the IBF belt. Veteran Virgil Hill fights unbeaten Valery Brudov. Also on that card are, in separate fights, Nate Campbell, Stevie Johnston, Prince Badi Ajamu, and Mike Arnaoutis.

    Then on Sat., January 28, at Boardwalk Hall, HBO shows Arturo Gatti vs. unbeaten but untested Thomas Damgaard. This is Gatti's step up fight from 140 to welterweight. Plus, HBO will no doubt also show the previous week's Morales-Pacquiao 2.

    The next week, on Super Bowl eve on February 4, Showtime has from El Paso the rubber match between Jose Luis Castillo and Diego Corrales. UFC is trying to compete with this by showing at the same time, on pay-per-view, Liddell vs. Couture 3 in Vegas.

    It will be a busy month.
