I think I have seen Rocky III at least 200 times. Well, the training montage and fight scenes at least. As a child of the 80’s it was a mandatory text 😉 At one point during highschool, I was watching it every afternoon at my best mate’s house. Eye of Tiger still gets my heart pumping. Is there a better song to play when working out? I doubt it!
Now? Nearly 30 years on? The arena may have changed somewhat, but the emotional connection of the “fight”, I think was captured in Aaron Sorkin’s “The West Wing”. Rocky Balboa with a suit on. Rocky is the glory of the underdog and made me think I was invincible on the football field. Bartlett reminds me that my capacity is often beyond my initial comprehension. Then again, so does the Bible 😉
