Bob Weir Talks About Wanting To Continue Touring For The Rest Of His Life [Watch]

first_imgYesterday, Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir was a special guest at the Einstein Gala in Toronto, ON, both to perform and to speak about the importance of innovation in both science and the arts. Ahead of that scheduled appearance, Weir appeared on local news affiliate CP24, talking one-on-one with host Travis Dhanaraj.The interesting conversation touched on a number of topics in a short time, including Weir’s presence at the gala and the connections between science and the arts, the foundation of the Grateful Dead, and Weir’s plans for the future. He mentions that he believes STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) should really be STEAM, with the A for arts, because of the importance of the creative spark. When the conversation turns to the Dead, Weir tells the story of meeting Jerry Garcia before the conversation turns to Weir’s plans for the future. In the discussion, Weir cites Count Basie and Johnnie Johnson as inspirational musicians who toured until their final days, saying “I’ve got nothing better to do” on multiple occasions.Keep on rockin’ it Bobby!

Who really won the Canelo vs. GGG rematch? SN re-scores the fight

first_imgAlthough Gennadiy Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez fought to a controversial draw in their September 2017 outing, many felt GGG won handily.One year later, in September 2018, the score was to be settled.  There you have it. SN disagrees with all three judges almost eight months later, as we scored it this time around 115-113 for Golovkin. Looking back, it was a much better fight than the first one. Alvarez changed up his plan of attack and came out the aggressor. He appeared to have Golovkin, who looked old and slow, on the ropes. But “GGG” finally stopped fighting from the outside and let it all hang out.  While the 12th round was closer than originally thought back in September, it’s still hard to see how judges Dave Moretti and Steve Weisfeld scored it for Alvarez. Golovkin controlled the majority of the round and only came on in the final 45 seconds. That doesn’t win a round. If Moretti and Weisfeld flipped their scores, then you have a draw which wouldn’t have been the worst thing in the world, and one verdict fans could have lived with. How did you have the rematch? But more controversy ensued when Alvarez won the rematch by majority decision. Judge Glenn Feldman scored it a draw 114-114, Dave Moretti and Steve Weisfeld each had it 115-113 for Alvarez. Sporting News had it 116-112 for Golovkin. ​Moretti and Weisfeld scored the 12th and final round for Alvarez even though the consensus among boxing pundits was Golovkin won it going away Join DAZN to watch Canelo, GGG and 100+ fight nights a yearDid Golovkin do enough to defeat Alvarez once again? Or did Alvarez counter-punch effectively enough for his hand to be raised?As rumors swirl around a trioly fight between Alvarez and Golovkin, SN decided to re-watch Canelo-GGG 2 for an updated round-by-round breakdown.Round 1 to Golovkin (10-9)A tactical opening round. Alvarez came out firing and looking to press the action, while Golovkin was content to stay on the outside and fire the jab to the body and head. Alvarez settled down and started utilizing the jab, but too little, too late to secure the round.Round 2 to Canelo (10-9, 19-19)More aggressiveness from Alvarez. He landed the harder shots, as the left hook was starting to find a home and also began throwing short hooks and uppercuts. Those punches caused some small swelling under Golovkin’s right eye. Round 3 to Canelo (10-9, 29-28 Canelo)Golovkin is throwing more punches, but Alvarez is the more active fighter. He’s landing the harder shots, making them count. Golovkin needs to press a bit more. He cannot stay on the outside and expect to win.MORE: Gennady Golovkin can’t hide vitriol for Canelo Alvarez even if he triesRound 4 to Canelo (10-9, 39-37 Canelo)Alvarez is bringing the fight to GGG and not the other way round from what we saw in the first fight. Golovkin needs to keep ripping the body. He did one time in the middle of the round and never went back to it. Alvarez is bringing the aggression and willing to let it fly. Time for Golovkin to do the same. Watch for a small cut above Alvarez’s left eye. Let’s see if Golovkin does something about it.Round 5 to Canelo (10-9, 49-46 Canelo)Alvarez is quicker to the draw and is the fresher guy up this point. He has been more successful with the power punches and is making Golovkin fight tentatively instead of dictating the pace which has caused Golovkin to tire.Round 6 to Canelo (10-9, 59-55 Canelo)Alvarez continues to come forward and let Golovkin know he’s in charge. The body shots are starting to take their toll on the unified middleweight champion. A bright spot for Golovkin in the last 30 seconds, as he began to come forward and connected on a combination.Join DAZN to re-watch Canelo Alvarez’s biggest fightsRound 7 to Golovkin (10-9, 68-65 Canelo)A good bounce back and much-needed round for Golovkin. He’s following up the jab with power shots upstairs which is making Alvarez starting to miss and swing wildly. Golovkin needs to continue to do that if he’s going to make a comeback. Round 8 to Golovkin (10-9, 77-75 Canelo)Golovkin’s head trainer Abel Sanchez told him before he got up from his stool to begin the eighth round that he was losing. It was an even round until the final 30 seconds when Golovkin connected on a jab followed by a short right hand. Round 9 to Golovkin (10-9, 86-85 Canelo)Golovkin is in a rhythm. He is finally using the jab effectively to allow him to land power shots. He decided to take a risk and go power for power with Alvarez, and it’s paying, as he has now seized control of the fight.Round 10 to Golovkin (10-9, 95-95)The best round of the night for Golovkin. It didn’t start that way as Alvarez began the round very well, connecting on a combination to the body and then a three-punch combo upstairs. The rest of the stanza belonged to Golovkin, though. He rocked Alvarez with a thunderous right hand and tried to finish him off and then unloaded a barrage of shots. Alvarez showed he’s got a chin made of granite by eating some of the most massive shots from one of boxing’s most lethal punchers.Round 11 to Golovkin (10-9, 105-104 Golovkin)Golovkin came out a man on a mission, as he kept pressuring Alvarez with the jab and landed heavy power shots. With 21 seconds left, Golovkin sent Alvarez back with a left hook. All that did was wake Alvarez up as he blasted Golovkin with a straight right hand followed by a left hook. All comes down to the 12th and final round.Round 12 to Golovkin (10-9, 115-113 Golovkin)Golovkin did the one thing he didn’t in the first fight — went after it in the final round. He fought like a man possessed and kept the foot on the gas pedal. To the testament of Alvarez and Golovkin, they left it all on the line in the center of the ring. They were dead tired and exhausted, but they went toe-to-toe In the final seconds and traded power shots to the closing bell.last_img read more
