Walt Disney World 2022 August 2- 11

So It Was Kind of a Fiasco, But Somehow It Worked Out Anyway
Against Oom-Pahsible Odds, the Return of Our Disney Loving Horde

Though there were a myriad of reasons for it to fall through,
somehow Grandma returned...

the McGinley and Luer families en masse to Disney World for a successful and fun trip, 
where nobody actively tried to injure each other.
(I suspect Grandpa watching over us)          
It was a Disney Miracle!
 (With our first ever visit to StarWarsLand, a reference...even a lame one...was needed.)

Clash of Fictional Champions

As my cheesy "talking about a video game and making it somewhat informative by adding real world information" posts continue, its time to hit a new low - substituting one fictional character for another.

My absolute favorite boxing movie is Diggstown.

The Other Italian Heavyweight Champion


After playing Rocky Marciano through the Rocky movie fights, I've adopted that "Gauntlet" as a way to enjoy myself with Fight Night Champion for an evening without having to spend time picking bouts. Since there's a lot of variety in the opponents, it makes for an interesting evening.

Classically Conditioned Champion Comparisons

I spent many a weekend night playing video games a while ago instead of writing…
Which leads to the inevitable group of posts about Fight Night Champion again.
Since I have no ability to stop the flow of usless information from my bucket like head, game information will me mixed with real world boxing history as well.
To highlight my laziness, this first bit lacks videos, and I was only watching the game have A.I. driven fights, not playing.
For a while, I wanted to see the outcome of putting the three shorter heavyweight champions known for their conditioning and damaging swarm punching against each other:
 Joe Frazier, Mike Tyson and Rocky Marciano.
