Opinion | Wood column: Jack Dempsey, the painting and St. Patrick's Day

Mid-March of 1969 found me traveling to New York City with college friends for the St Patrick’s Day parade. Held every year since 1762, the parade and festivities could be compared to Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras in New Orleans. As a prelude to the parade, we found our way to Jack Dempsey’s Restaurant that was located on Broadway between 49th and 50th in Manhattan. The restaurant had been a landmark since it was opened by the former heavyweight champion in 1934.

Downtime with… Glasgow No 8 Jack Dempsey

Really well. In terms of off-the-field stuff, it’s been really great. It’s a massive change, going from living five minutes from the beach in Sydney to Glasgow, but I got here during the summer so I could ease my way in and it wasn’t as dark as it is now.

Tunney rose to his feet at an official count of ‘nine’, but was unofficially down for 14 seconds. Tunney would go on to triumph via decision, with The Long Count being remembered as one of the most controversial moments in boxing history.

100 years ago in Spokane: Boxer Jack Dempsey gave a crowd of fans advice on staying fit

More than 1,000 fans showed up to greet heavyweight boxing champ Jack Dempsey when his train pulled into Spokane. “Then Jack stepped from the train,” said The Spokesman-Review. “The greeting was hilarious. … As if by magic and from nowhere a crowd of small boys appeared along the station platform and they elbowed and battled among themselves to get as close as possible. In the waiting room, the shoulders of the champion served him well and football tactics were almost necessary before he was able to wade through to the limousine which awaited him.”

Old School Mentality? Jack Dempsey Went Three Years Without Defending His Title.

He was, without doubt, the most popular fighter of his day. In fact, he may have even been the most popular ATHLETE of his day. That’s right, 1920s era heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey may even have been more famous than Babe Ruth at the time (and Ruth was wildly famous). Yet Dempsey, the great Manassas Mauler, went three years – that’s three years – without defending his title. That kind of layoff is the sort of thing that would shame even the most easygoing contemporary ring stars. Or perhaps they might actually see it as something to admire. It’s hard to tell anymore, really.

In Search of Jack Dempsey: A bar and a nail

Can a Jack Dempsey and an Oscar Fish Live Together?

I enjoy pet fish and have kept a variety of smaller and larger species. I am particularly fond of cichlids. One of the banes of any fish-keeper's life (and perhaps one of the joys, too) is putting together a tank of fish that don't slaughter each other. Large cichlids, such as Jack Dempseys and Oscar fish, are known for levels of aggression from mild to very aggressive. So, can you keep them together? The answer is yes, providing a couple of conditions are met.
