Commentary

Fuckin’ A. Looks like 40 is the new 30 as athletes destroy the bar on physical limits.

Let’s start by saying that there’s ample evidence today to suggest that if you pay attention to it consistently, the human body can continue to improve well-past any modern notion of what society considers as a point of no-return for the body. But it takes cumulative work.

Motorcycle maintenance motherfuckers.

A Youth’s ability to chalk-up the strength of his physical capabilities to the fact that he is young, is quite endearing. And naive.

Firstly, this Youth clearly, hasn’t put in the work to get strong enough to tackle at the present moment. Meaning, his youth has given him the false impression that he is somehow strong as a consequence of his Youth. He is strong. Not that he built himself to be strong.

And this creates, in his head, a second fallacy as he grows older.

That, somehow, his body is now getting weak because he is getting older. Not that he brought it into this phase, weak. That everyday, from his beginnings, was a steady deterioration of the body on a day-to-day basis from blind ignorance of the fact that the body craved physical-challenges and needed to keep every actuator it has, firing.

Manny Pacquiao is well-over 40. He’s just beat the daylights out of two 25 year-old World Champions, back-to-back over a span of 6 months. Like, gave them a proper beating. His calves are thick as a mule. And then he went back to being the political leader that he is for the Philippines. That’s a proper comic-book hero. R-rated, gay-bashing, comic hero. Marvel has no answer to this Ace of Spades from the Boxing business.

Both the fallacies I mentioned at the beginning may have had a role to play in the examples Manny’s opponents set. But there definitely was this third-one they displayed; the idea that there’s such a thing as having learnt a skill. That, that task was complete.

END.
