They don’t make ’em like this no more…

Today is January 10th, the day Big George Foreman celebrates his birthday. In that spirit let’s enjoy exactly what George was so great at delivering to us: bone-crunching thrills and spine-tingling chills! Here they are in full display in one of his most famous victories, a brain-jarring brawl versus Ron Lyle. This was Foreman’s first fight after losing to Muhammad Ali in Zaire. If you were a Marvel Comics fan growing up, this fight is probably what a Hulk versus Thing fight might look like. Except, of course, these guys center the violence on each other, Hulk and Thing would destroy a whole city block.

So, Happy Birthday, George, and thanks for all the thrills!

p.s. the grill ain’t bad either.
