Still, yeah: "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. His hands can't hit what his eyes can't see. Now you see me, now you don't. George thinks he will, but I know he won't."
LOL Mrs. P - always one to start a tempest in a teapot and then try to wriggle out of it -- this time by blaming the poor husband.

This happened how many years ago? Of course at that time, people were condemning Johnny. Why bring that up now?

Why you insist on painting me as some sort of troublemaker on these boards is a complete mystery to me.

Yes and no, though. I mean, yes his physical state is sad - but I don't think he really is a "fraction of his former self". I've given this a lot of thought, and it seems to me that, in a sense, he has prevailed. Everything he used to boast of - his speed, his strength, his looks - have been taken from him. And yet he remains, in essense, the same person. He's not given up on life or himself. Now that is mental fortitude - that is greatness!
