Enjoyed this a lot more second time around, after more than ten years… man am I ever old.
Before this review begins, I’d like to just wish everyone affected by the attack in Colorado the very best. I really have no words to express how horrible that was, especially when you read stories like that of Jessica Ghawi’s, who survived a shooting in Canada only for this to happen. . Back to the […]

Micky Ward is the youngest of a large family. All his life he has looked up to his older brother, Dicky, who once knocked down Sugar Ray Leonard in a fight.
