Going The Distance

Rocky: I can't do it.

Adrian: What?

Rocky: I can't beat him.

Adrian: Apollo?

Rocky: Yeah. I been out there walkin' around, thinkin'. I mean, who am I kiddin'? I ain't even in the guy's league.

Adrian: What are we gonna do?

Rocky: I don't know.

Adrian: You worked so hard.

Rocky: Yeah, that don't matter. 'Cause I was nobody before.

Adrian: Don't say that.

Rocky: Ah come on, Adrian, it's true. I was nobody. But that don't matter either, you know? 'Cause I was thinkin', it really don't matter if I lose this fight. It really don't matter if this guy opens my head, either. 'Cause all I wanna do is go the distance. Nobody's ever gone the distance with Creed, and if I can go that distance, you see, and that bell rings and I'm still standin', I'm gonna know for the first time in my life, see, that I weren't just another bum from the neighborhood.

Me, I prefer Buckaroo Banzai

Perfect Tommy: Why me?
Buckaroo Banzai: Because you're perfect.
Perfect Tommy: You have a point there.

How could she not put up the Italian Stallion being the Sicilian poker queen that she is? Thank you for the link up Josie. Hope your tourney went well. One day I will join FT and my first tourney will be the Very Josie.

Josie said...

Neo, the link was more for me than you. I forgot all about your blog!!!

A week from tonight is The Very Josie - throw a few bucks in and play!! I'm telling you it's the most fun you'll have playing online. I shiat you not.

Josie said...

Oh Neo, Didja happen to watch the game tonight? Sox vs Rays? Get your broom out! Sweep!

The Neophyte said...

Yeah I saw and it was not to pleasant. Almost makes up for the 4 games we took up in Boston earlier this year doesn't it? What does that leave you guys, like 5.5 out still? Trust me you guys and the Yanks have too many problems this year, you better hope you can stay ahead of Toronto Josie cuz they look like a tough team now.
Also happened to catch a bit of the Celtic game as well. What is it with Boston teams this year? Bruins blow a 3 games to 0 lead along with a 3-0 lead in game 7, Celts up 3-0 and lose 2 in a row. They're looking old and tired now Josie. Just like Drew and Lowell and Big Sloppy will look like at the end of this year. You better hope the Sox don't get into the playoffs against the Yanks and go up 3-0. It would undo all of that great Karma (Yankees, only team in baseball to blow a 3-0 series lead hahahahaha) to let them do the same thing to y'all.

Having said all this, I am concerned. Half the team isn't hitting and the manager keeps screwing with the lineup instead of letting the guys who are hitting well play more. Hopefully the Rays will go on the road soon and tear it up again.

Neo, I'm just thrilled they won 3 in a row. They do not look spectacular this year. I don't even know if they're in line to get 95 wins....of course this could be the beginning of a nice winning streak.

Yeah I was flipping between the celtics and the sox although i have zippo interest in the celtics anymore.
And don't forget,
