So we were watching Rocky last night (Not babysitting for a kid named Rocky, watching a movie named Rocky)
So it's near the end of the movie. Rocky and Apollo Creed are boxers and are duking it out in a championship match.
A vicious battle.
Back and forth.
Blood. Sweat. Tears.
Round 4. Round 8.
Beating the crap out of each other.
12th round. 14th.
The end of the fight.
Rocky has fullfilled his dream...he's gone toe to toe with the champ for 15 brutal rounds.
He looks for his girl in the crowd.
She is making her way thru the stands.
She gets to the ring.
She climbs inside the boxing ring.
She embraces a bloodied Rocky!!
The music swells! The credits rolls.
One of the greatest movies of all time ends.
My heart is pounding.
And then my Wife speaks:
