Chad Dawson and Bernard Hopkins meet the press for April 28th fight. Dawson is talkative, Hopkins not so much.
Comment on this video
Nice coverage, Mike. ya know, human beings are bored with or threatened by reality, so they replace it with something imaginary that gives them what they wish for, e.g. Obama is a Muslim and a socialist, when he's really a Christian, business-friendly moderate. Pacquiao is on 'roids, right, in spite of all available evidence pointing to the contrary, and none pointing to the fantasy. Problem is, those facts bore people who need to hate, so, replace them with a spicy fiction and convince yourself that you're justified - we call it rationalization, giving a rational sounding justification to something that exists only in your mind. Some people say Dawson had his way, but this is imaginary - he landed , what, 5 punches? Some people, including poor dull Chad, say that Hopkins pulled a stunt, and that he should have fought with one finger - sorry, reality is that Chad tossed him, the injury was medically verified. Simple verifiable facts. Dull to those who need sizzling salacious silliness in order to get through the next five minutes. But, reality is someone will beat someone in the ring that night; fact is that talented Chad is a mild-mannered underachiever who is clumsily trying to create a new appearance for himself by acting like "Bad Chad" and talking low-quality trash. Know-wa-ah-mean, know-wa-ah-mean? Reality, baby, as close as you can get, I recommend it. Then, when the magic happens, in reality, it is so much sweeter.
I don't know what this guy does for a living, but I can only hope he's tremendously compensated. Great, great reading. (Of course because of great writing). Props.
