I have finally discovered how Dr. G. got to 10 000 posts. I never looked in this thread, but it became immediately obvious in the last few pages ( Casablanca). Hmm...it seems like this thread is one big inside joke that I don't understand (newbie out).

CN, welcome to The Shang. Have a cup of coffee or tea at the Cafe Chez Marc, on the house, and sit down in one of our comfortable chairs, let a doxie sit by you and start reading this thread from posting #1. Then you shall understand "The Way of the Shang". Paix.

welcome newbie, from still-fairly-newbie.

Yes, the Shang is all one big inside joke. You can tackle the rather amazing feat of reading the entire thread from the beginning. Or, you can jump right in and go with it.

Either way, the coffee is excellent.

How true, Sonal. Have a homemade muffin to go along with that fine cup of coffee.

On June 13th, 1935, in Long Island City, N.Y., at Sunnyside Gardens, Braddock, as a 10 to 1 underdog, won the heavyweight championship of the world from Max Baer. To celebrate the 70th anniversary of this feat, the Cafe Chez Marc will serve free everything on Monday.

Wahooo Dr.G! Kudos to you on the script of Casablanca
You took a big risk casting Ena in the role. Unusual for her to be playing a romantic role

I went to "Cindarella Man" last weekend. It was quite good, very sad in parts, but definately uplifting (ugh overused word). Lots of action too; an interesting mix that kept it fresh throughout the whole thing. Braddock's story is definately an interesting one... Glad to hear you're celebrating it, Dr. G.

CN, I grew up about 5 miles from Sunnyside Gardens in Queens, NY. When I was a little boy my, about 7 or 8, my father and uncle took me there to watch the Friday Night Fights. To be honest, all I remember was the cigar smoke.

My Grandad used to sit with me while we listened to those Friday night fights on the radio, Dr. G.

I remember his excitement and him being a great fan of Rocky Marciano, which incidentally rubbed off on me.
