I rode my bike to Barns & Noble and picked up both the April and May editions of The Ring magazine. I had to plunk down $8.95 a pop to get 'em though. But to make it easier on those of you who would like to get the latest boxing scoops I'm offering a 3 day rental for only $2.99. And if you make a reservation within the next 20 minutes I'll enter you into a drawing for a chance to see a VHS recording of Ali v. Frazier. (Offer available while supplies last.)

F.Y.I. - this little known fact I learned from the cashier while checking out. Both Barns & Noble and The Ring magazine were founded by John F. Kennedy Jr. in the run up to what would have been an illustrious political career. Who would have thought?

Doug Kleven here. What do you say to a Joe Louis/Mockinbird throwdown on April 16th at the Great Steak Grill at 7:49? I'm shooting for somewhere that looks rough around the edges. The kind of place disgruntled men go to to eat mediocre food and get in fights. If any of you know of another joint where the odds of assault are higher, please send a shout out.
