Busy week, including a couple of podcasts. One was recorded last week, and one published this week—live episode with my friend Patrick O’Shaughnessy. We discussed longevity, Marvelous Marvin Hagler (my boyhood inspiration), quality of life, and moving to what I call Medicine 3.0.
Speaking of Hagler, I wanted to set the record straight: we’re coming up on the 33rd anniversary (not the 30th as I mentioned in the interview) of “The War,” between Hagler and Tommy Hearns. If you’re a boxing fan (or not), watch this. You won’t be disappointed. In my opinion, the first round of this fight is perhaps the best round I have ever seen in my life (another one being round 10 of the first Holyfield-Bowe fight in 1992).
And, speaking of boxing, and Easter, I filmed a brief primer on one of the most underappreciated sports of all time, egg boxing. No April Fool’s. Like the Earl of Sandwich, I have been referred to the Earl of Egg Boxing on occasion, which is one of my crowning achievements. I can’t take the credit, though. The glory goes to those little oval competitors putting their shells on the line for that championship belt. RIP, my Ramanujan.
