Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

A favourite of mine. Used to play regularly at the coffee shop me and my childhood mates go to. Now they have LCD screens and satellite TV and **** because another shop opened across the street and now they have to compete for customers.
We still hang out there most of the time though, that place is older than I am.
I personally preferred when they had just the radios.
Man...Good good memories.
