Mike Tyson got into the Boxing Hall of Fame. So did Rocky. Who's more deserving?

First of all, what is the Boxing Hall of Fame? Where is it? And has anyone ever visited it? That said, we're in no position to make fun of them selecting Rocky since we've got his hideous statue outside our art museum. Always thought Tyson should be in the dental Hall of Fame.

I'm thinking it's not a destination location, like Canton or Springfield or Cooperstown. I'm also not sure which is worse, having a fictional character in your Hall, or a convicted rapist who mauled someone's ear in a fight. Either way, I certainly won't be visiting it, wherever it may be.

Tyson should also be in the Face Tattoo Hall of Fame and the Eat Your Children Hall of Fame.

How dare you besmirch Rocky's good name, Fitz. Did you avenge your mentor's death by bashing Mr. T? Did you save Democracy by punishing Ivan Drago? And did you come out of retirement to do something no one remembers because no one saw the last (two) movie(s)?

The man is an American hero on par with George Washington and that male flight attendant who grabbed beers and slid down the safety ramp.

I'm officially bowing out of this conversation. Have at it, Fitzy.

Rocky was a great movie. But it all should have stopped there. Instead, our film history and our parkway's artistic integrity are forever besmirched. And, coincidentally, I have bashed Ivan Drago and smacked around Mr. T, but I was much younger then.
