Person Of The Day: Rocky Balboa

Rocky is back in the ring! Sylvester Stallone has signed on to reprise the role of Rocky in the sixth Italian Stallion film which is also written and directed by Stallone. In the new movie titled, Rocky Balboa, the champ who is lonely and retired in Philly, comes out of retirement to fight a few small local fights. He then gets a chance to fight the reigning champ which ignites a media firestorm. The new film is supposed to be in the vein of the first two Rocky films.

"'Rocky Balboa' is about everybody who feels they want to participate in the race of life, rather than be a bystander," Stallone said in a statement. "You're never too old to climb a mountain, if that's your desire."
Shooting is scheduled to begin in December in Los Angeles and Philadelphia.

To understand how excited about this movie I am, just know that instead of having a bachelor party, I watched Rocky 1 and 2 with friends. Also, Adam (of What's Adam Doing? fame) and I are planning a Rocky marathon! That's right, all five movies back to back!!
