Boxing Day

  1. An allusion to the film “Rocky” (1976), in which Rocky is so badly beaten during the fight that his eyes are swollen shut. He pleads with his trainer to cut his eyelids open, saying “Cut me, Mick, cut me,” to drain blood and relieve the pressure, so he can continue on to the final round.

    Lou here is willing to do the same for his boxer, but the guy is so swollen everywhere that he can’t decide what to cut.

  2. Is the boxer supposed to be McCain?

  3. Ah, good thing you posted before I did. I thought he was saying “Cut me” as in “take me out of the game”. In that case it would be funny because the trainer takes it literally and asks where to physically cut him. My money is on #1’s guess. Any other bets?
