When his right connects with your mandible
I stayed with Moore once in his house in San Diego. In the backyard he had installed a small swimming pool in the shape of a boxing glove, with the steps down the curve of the thumb. Inside the house the bathroom faucets were gold leaping dolphins. Archie flushed every one of the toilets to show me they were in working order. In the living room a large picture window looked out on the heavy flow of traffic on the interstate. "What I like about the view," he said, "is that it is always changing."
That was like him, to put the best light on things. Boxing had been good to him, and he to it. More than once he said that when the time came, they could put on his tombstone HERE LIES ARCHIE MOORE—SMILING.
Down! Set! Swish!
Mark Rodenhauser, the Pittsburgh Steelers' long snapper, can hike a football through a basketball hoop. He says he averages 60% from half-court and 20% from full court. Rodenhauser developed this Stupid Snapper Trick during the bitter winters in his native Chicago, when he was often forced to take his football into his high school's gym. "I couldn't shoot a basketball, so I figured I might as well bend over and do it," he says.
Has Shaq tried this?

Owners You Can Trust
One thing the NBA lockout has proved is that there's no shortage of greed on either side of the dispute. At least two owners, however, will be giving generously when, or if, the dispute is settled.
Ray Chambers and Lewis Katz, part of a group that paid $150 million for the New Jersey Nets last month, have placed their shares—roughly 35% of the team—in a trust for inner-city youth in New Jersey. (Several of their co-owners have also agreed to contribute.) Any profits the trust realizes, from continuing operations or from the eventual sale of the team, will go to scholarships, mentoring programs and other services for youth in Newark, Trenton, Camden, Paterson and Jersey City. "We have enough money," says Katz, a parking-lot magnate. "What we don't have is enough time to solve the problems that affect inner cities."
