Here I go again! I can’t help it! I am so impressed by Gerard Whateley’s superb usage of the English language, that I must share it with you. Read, and marvel at, his introduction to the Fight of the Century between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao:
“Hello and welcome to OFFSIDERS.
There was a time when the Fight of the Century was not only an essential part of sporting lore, but a worthy social study offering a snapshot of oppression and struggle, or political change. Now, with boxing’s flagging appeal, today’s Fight of the Century seems reduced to garish pantomime doused in celebrity, excess, and money. Actually, the more you think about it, perhaps it is a VERY accurate depiction of our time.”
