There were petition drives all across the city of Chicago. Who can forget some of the names seeking ballot access: Rob Halpin, Congressman Danny Davis, Rev. Wilfredo De Jesus: M. Tricia Lee, Tyrone Carter, Jay Stone: Ryan Graves, Fenton C. Patterson, Frederick K. White, Tommy Hanson, State Senator (Reverend) James T. Meeks, Roland W. Burris, John Hu, and Howard Ray. And others.
The way I trained for Rocky III was a bit of an overkill. I would run three miles in the morning, then go straight into 15 rounds of sparring, followed by two hours in the weight room, pushing tons of iron. Then I’d usually do 500 sit-ups before jumping rope for 10 rounds (30 minutes). I’d eat, nap, and start again.
.The Lords of Flatbush in the early seventies. I needed to morph into a hulking Brooklyn thug, so in the weeks before shooting, I went from 160 pounds to 200 pounds. It was probably the easiest weight-training regimen I ever had on a movie. Every day, I’d gorge on whatever was cheap and fattening. I didn’t know better.
.while its fun and even smart to give some thought to the WHAT, HOW, and when of our happiness, constantly tinkering around at that level of detail isn’t always good.
I was informed that a yogurt diet alone (or any other pure protein diet, for that matter) won’t provide enough fiber to build muscle, especially for the kind of muscle I was using that day.
Proper nutrition was an absolute mystery to me back then, too. All I knew was that fighters were strong, so i took the old-school approach and beefed up on fried chicken and potatoes, burgers and fries, spaghetti and baked ziti, whatever I thought would build muscle mass. If you recall, Rocky calls himself a “ham and egger,” but he just as easily could have been an “ice cream-and-milkshaker,” because that’s what i was eating at the time-which made about as much sense scientifically as that cocktail of raw eggs I drank for breakfast in the movie.
Child Custody – Probably one of the most important divorce rights to keep in mind is child custody. This is a right that you have. There can be joint custody or sole custody. However, even if your spouse was to get sole custody, unless you have a criminal record or you are dangerous, you still have the right to see your kids, where the time period you are allowed to spend time with them is determined by the divorce judge lawyer as part of the divorce proceedings.
Most days, I’d eat little more than tuna straight out of the can for protein, a slice of burnt toast, water, and gallons of coffee.sometimes have more than 30 tiny cups of [espresso] coffee a day to help speed my metabolism. It was only later that I realized I needed all that caffeine because I wasn’t getting enough energy from food.
