Last night I am watching the Rachman vs. Toney fight on HBO. Was highly looking forward to it because I have not seen a good heavyweight bout in a long time.
So the fight begins and it started off pretty good, both fighters are going toe-to-toe and putting in some great punches. First round ends and I think to myself...hmmmm this could be good.
Round two starts and it gets even better than round one. Both fighters are unwilling to give up their ground so they are set to just stand there and see who can take the best punches. It was great.
Round three, now the fight ends for me. See everytime I watch a big bout like this I tend to look at the crowd behind the boxers to see who is there celebrity wise. Why? I have no clue but I do it. So I am scanning the crowd, and I notice a fella look straight up. And he is staring straight up, then I see him elbow his friend next to him and he points up. His friend looks up and they both start waving. Not a peace sign, not a a little shake of the hand but both arms up like they are trying to flag down the last taxi of the night. So I just chuckle, but then the row behind them sees it and they start doing it. This goes on all round 3.
Round 4 kicks in same two buffons doing the taxi wave. All 4 rows behind them start in, and they are all waving. And all I could think is "wtf am I watching? The WWE?" This goes on all round. And it was impossible to tune out. These people were acting like idiots. Then the rows ahead of these guys catch on and they start doing it. The whole effing section is doin it. No one (including me) is watching the fight. They are all starring straight up.
Now the fun REALLY begins. Buffoon one and two are at it again at the start of round 5. EXCEPT NOW they have their damn cell phones glued to their ears and talking to their idiot mates, all waving at the camera, all starring straight up, and all not watching the fight. Everyone grabs their cell phone and starts doing it, and if they did not have one, they were borrowing their friends cell phones.
So this goes on into the sixth round, and I figure the novalty will wear off. Nope the whole damn fight. Yep twelve rounds of watching stupid people pine for the camera, jump up and down for the camera (yes two guys were doing that), all with their cell phones stapped to their stupid shaped heads.
I think Rachman won, or it was a draw or something. I was so mentally tired from all the things I was thinking to do to these people it was just down right disturbing.
