Ok... Rocky movies molded my childhood... so I'm in on this...
I still get teary eyed, wanna hit the gym and and wanna beat some bad-guys ass... all at the same time... in Rocky 2, when Adrian wakes from her post-birth coma and says to Rocky, "I want you do do something for me." Then Rock asks what. And Adrian says, "Win... I want you to win!"
Damn... I'm gettin jazzed just from typing this.
It's hard for me to pick a favorite Rocky movie because I was a different age at each one.
Rocky I - Toddler
Rocky II - Elementary School
Rocky III - Elementary
Rocky IV - Middle
Rocky V - High... really high... but I was in High School too
Rocky 6 (my roman numerals only go so far..lol) - Adult
So each movie affected me differently. I thought each movie was the best, when I saw it for the first time. However, I think... if backed in a corner and forced to choose a favorite... I'd pick III. The element of Rock loosing, then being trained by his enemy who becomes his best friend, after Mickey died... well that was pretty bad-ass!
And who doesn't remember Rock beating Apollo, for the first time, sprinting on the beach.
Every day God gives me, is an opportunity to take another step closer to my spriritual, personal and professional goals. I will use today so that tomorrow... next week... next year, I may look back and be proud of the choices I made, the people I've touched and the goals I've accomplished.
