Latest in the Metro

My latest column is on Philadelphia legend Joey Eye, a Pennsylvania’s 7-time Cut Man of the Year. He’s the guy that literally stops the bleeding in a boxing match, ensuring that the boxer he works for can keep on fighting, even if blood is pouring down his face. One thing he said that didn’t make the column was what he tells boxers when they come back to the corner with a bad cut. “Gotta keep ’em calm, so I never tell ’em how bad the cut is. They could be bleeding like a stuck pig, and I’ll say, ‘Ahhhh, that’s nothin’. I’ve had worse cuts shaving.'” The photo above is not of him of course. If you wanna see what Joey Eye looks like, check out the boxing video I recently did. (he’s at the 1:03 mark).
