  • All I know, Genevieve, is that you feel good in the ring when you've got the man where you want him, when he's had a punch up both sleeves waiting for you and you've never given him an opening to land 'em, when you've landed your own little punch an 'he's goin' groggy, an 'holdin' on, an 'the referee's dragging him off so's you can go in an' finish 'm, an' all the house is shouting an 'tearin' itself loose, an 'you know you're the best man, an' that you played m 'fair an' won out because you're the best man.
