Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

I see where boxing legend Jake “Raging Bull” LaMotta has died at the age of 95.

One of Mrs. Robbo’s cousins married a niece of his.  Ol’ Robbo attended the wedding (which was at a catering hall – a compromise, I suppose, since he is Jewish and she is Catholic) and the reception (which was at the niece’s parents’ house, I think) out on Lawn Gyland.

The two things I remember (this was better than 20 years ago) were a) that copies of the couple’s pre-nup were set out for the guests’ reading pleasure in the loo, and b) the presence of a large number of attendees who looked like extras from “Goodfellas”.

I do not recall that LaMotta himself was there, but then I was trying to stay well in the background the whole time, so I really wouldn’t have known.

The couple are still married, by the bye, so apparently the pre-nup was unnecessary.
