  • Meticulously, I kept my own world rankings and had the childish audacity to contribute to this small ground-mail community hopeful opinions and values of fighters I could but only read about; being sure to include any souveigner from past or present; fight cards or even newspaper clippings from the local papers so that somewhere out there in a world so distant to me there would be someone who went to their mail-box and found the same sort of Christmas present marvel that made my days.
