The boxer Jake LaMotta, known to many as Raging Bull
has died. He was the subject of the 1980 movie Raging Bull, starring Robert DeNiro as LaMotta.
I seen the movie. Making it to 95 is pretty good. RIP, Jake.
After having watched the movie about himself, he asked his second wife Vikki, who was portrayed in the movie, if he was really that bad. She said, "you were worse."
I went to junior high school with his daughter, Jackie.
I graduated from the same high school as Jeb Stuart Magruder (a few years after he did...he was enshrined on the school's Permanent Honor Roll)
I went to the same high school as Stanley Kubrick.
I went to high school with a skinny kid the other boys picked on and called "Wo-Wo." I never even knew his name.
