Brush With Greatness6 Aug 2008 / Paul Epps
You’ll never guess who I saw at the Juice It Up in Aliso Viejo: Sugar Ray Leonard, the famous boxer! He was in line in front of me with a couple of his kids.
I wasn’t sure it was him at first, so I discreetly asked the college-age girl at the register, “Was that somebody famous?”
“Who?” she asked.
“The guy in front of me. That was Sugar Ray Leonard, right?”
The name meant nothing to her, but another gentleman in the shop assured me that it was really him.
Interesting fact: Leonard’s wife, who was waiting outside the shop, is not very attractive. You might think that the great Sugar Ray Leonard’s wife would be much hotter than, say, my wife, but such is not the case. Not even close.
Is it possible that Roberto Duran had just caught a glimpse of Mrs. Leonard ringside when he uttered his famous no más?
