Okay.. so.. this may not be an actual moment from history, but it’s a moment from MOVIE history. But, this is not just a movie, it is a SPORTS MASTERPIECE. In Rocky I, final fight, Rocky Balboa takes on Apollo Creed for the World Heavyweight Boxing Championship. Balboa, an amateur at the time, lost the match by split decision, but as Creed stated “I won, but I didn’t beat him” and my favorite line: “There ain’t goin be no rematch”. Which opens up a sequel, duh. As much as I would have liked to photoshop my face onto Rocky, I feel like it would have done him a great disservice for all the work he did for the world, for example; SINGLE-HANDEDLY WINNING THE COLD WAR (circa Rocky IV). ds106assignment
