Ali Ruth Hendrix

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Babe Ruth, Jimi Hendrix, and Muhammad Ali are three people enshrined for greatness. Many MLB players have hit more homeruns, Kurt is better than Jimi, and Tyson in his prime would have KOed Ali, but enshrined for greatness is only partly a factual status. Through some emotional process working in mass people get enshrined, and it can’t be undone. George Foreman sort of borrows from Ali’s status and for me he’s a legend of boxing, and given the rise of MMA coupled with the decline of boxing Ali and anyone who fought him will be forever a legend. Added is the fact that George Foreman reinvented himself when disastrously few athletic stars remain celebrities outside of their athletic prime. George is also handsome and charming compared to the general population. Compared to boxers George is Hollywood handsome. All this preamble for one point. Americans like me (English only in my childhood home with no known family outside of the US) don’t know what a plancha is. Well, grazie George, it’s a George Forman Grill. I always order my plancha tostada_ed baked goods at La Gran Via with a visual clamping movement with my hands and both: ONE: George Foreman Grill TWO: en la plancha. I privately pay tribute to George as I use his name, but my smile is always in solitude . . . not today . . . grazie goes to Hector for hearing this whole story. »» about me 302-990-2346 nearlincoln@hotmail.com contact us
