WASHINGTON — On March 8, 1971, most Americans were fixated on their TV sets as Joe Frazier was about to dance with his nemesis  Muhammad Ali in the “Fight of the Century.” In the 15th round of the match at Madison Square Garden, Frazier landed a left hook that sent Ali crashing to the mat.   The winner was determined by unanimous decision: Frazier maintained his undefeated status and Ali took the first loss of his professional career.  The Greatest — an outspoken anti-war, pro-black activist — had fallen.

Se va el piojo

28Jul

Las malas lenguas dicen que el piojo vive sus ultimas horas como técnico del seleccionado mexicano, la agresión a Cristian Martinoli y a Luis García son la gota que derramo un vaso que ya traia el escandalo de los posts del partido verde, tuits y reacciones fuera de lugar en conferencias de prensa y además los malos resultados deportivos. La pura actitud de Herrera debería bastar para dejarlo fuera de la seleccion, un puesto con un perfil tan alto no se puede permitir para alguien con tan poca vocación de ídolo, menos aun en un país como el nuestro y menos aun en los tiempos que vivimos, responder de manera violenta a la critica es lo ultimo que se espera de alguien que es ejemplo de muchos en este país
