With all of the death that has surrounded the sport here of late, I thought it might be a good time to bring up a topic that is a little more positive in scope.
Has anybody caught this film....The Hammer?
It stars Adam Corrola as a 40 year old washed up boxer that gets hired as a southpaw sparring partner for an up and coming young guy, but he ends up really teaching the kid a lesson and even manages to surprise himself in the process.
It's was written, directed and stars Corrola. I did not realize he himself was a Golden Glove Champion.
The film has the perfect blend of comedy, seriousness and even a little romance for the ladies.
I caught this on HBO at like 3am one week while at a conference in Austin and was totally blown away by it.
I got it on Ebay for $4...post paid! lol
If you have not seen it...do yourself a favor and pick it up.
