    I did not know this and in some ways having a Basque centered recruitment policy makes sense and there is proof also that it makes sense because Bilbao have never been relegated to a lower division. The interesting thing for me is that when they reached the 2012 Europa League final, they did that with a foreign coach (Argentina's Marcelo Bielsa).

    I especially take note of Biesla, because one of his greatest young proteges is the current manager of the club I support i.e. Mauricio Pochettino, an Argentine football manager of our club Tottenham Hotspur. Pochettino is using the same methods as Biesla - so at least here, we can see that Atheltic Bilbao did benefit from relaxing their policy.

    What they don't gain is the kind of players that Real Sociedad have produced but again, it comes down to how well their youth system is developed. In Belgium, the youth system became a priority about a couple of decades ago and these many years of youth focus has produced a rich supply of world class footballers.

    It is important to get world class advisors and even the odd world class player to inject something new. For instance Johann Cruyff the Dutch superstar became a fervent support of Catalonia and their independence quest, so much so he went on to manage the Catalonia national side. For sure the reasons for Bilbao are cultural rather than political and they are looking at intangibles lost with cheque book football teams - the biggest one being a sense of loyalty and spiritual devotion.

    So I can well understand that a love of Bilbao is a feeling and not just fan support. It all comes down how important is European success - at least it was important enough for Bilbao to have hired previously an Argentinian manager.

    First things, first, we need to deal with the emoji because I have seen @Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín use this one as well, and some emoji's mean one thing like a muscle being flexed, but other people like me see totally another thing, here is what I mean.

    We must deal with the Sloth Emoji :-)

    When it comes to running the bit I don't like about running is the running, but I did check out a video of this run, and the place is too nice for me to run past it (and I can 20 meters certainly not 15Km), and if I was there, I would walk it, breath in the fresh air and enjoy the scenic pathway all the way :

    #8 The kids saw the game, I gave up in the third quarter after Atlanta made it 28-3 and then went upstairs and was commenting at beBee - by the time my kids knocked on my bedroom door I had realized I had just missed the greatest comeback in Superbowl history. Did see the overtime phase and one my kids took the shot above of me celebrating, the cool thing is that the projector light cast my shadow against the screen, so at least I was there for the spectacular ending. The last time I was this excited about a Tottenham game was in 1981 -and the FA Cup Replay - that was a legendary 100th FA Cup Final.

    Señor José Ramón López in football there may be ends but there are beginnings also. At the height of the crazy gang, Wimbledon had their greatest moment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQsf2fDhFUs

    This is a team that joined the big boys with a small ground and after all that success its owners moved the team to another town calling the Dons - Milton Keynes Dons. Wimbledon no longer had a football club.

    Yet the fans of Wimbledon did not mourn the theft of their team and so a few of them got money together to buy their own club. So was formed AFC WImbledon - who now had to start life 9 divisions below what is now the Premier League.

    They founded the club and then began an incredible devotion of fan and club relationship and they kept climbing until today they are back in the professional leagues. Maybe only 6 divisions better but back where they belonged. Díter Zafra need not be a footnote to Spanish football, after all it has a longer history than both the old Wimbledon and new Wimbledon combined - it all comes down to those fans who look for a way to keep the dream alive.

    There are no R.I.P.'s in football when there are still die hard fans.

    So I will not say R.I.P. Díter Zafra

    There are sports people who are defined by work ethic and Nadal is a primary example of them. In the field of NFL Football, the great Walter Payton is a good example and the under appreciated Rodney Harrison. There work ethic is at a different dimension to us, that is why I marvel not at their accomplishments but what they put in, sacrifice and suffer for - so that we give our fleeting and brief appreciation. The best appreciation is to learn from their work ethic and transfer it to our own lives - not to be clones of them but truly embracing the word inspiration as the breath of life we inspire - and when we have done that, we have truly appreciated people like Nadal.

    I finally saw the match and what a 5th set battle! I am glad that I did not watch this final set in the wee hours of the morning because this game was so gripping, I can't help whooping and hollering and 5am in the morning this is a different proposition to 5pm when I also knew the result.

    Nadal played very well and looked very sharp, but it is Federer who played a game of his life - at times matching Nadal's intensity and then there was that memorable rally near the end of the game that was breathtaking.

    Nadal looks like he has got past his years of injury and in this form and on his favourite surface of clay, when the French Open comes, he now must be considered a strong favourite to win it and thus surpass Pete Samprass into 2nd place for all-time grand-slam wins. What a match it was and for sure this game was really important in completing the accolade of Federer being the greatest player in history, with Nadal not that far behind.

    I have huge admiration for both these players. I love watching their different styles and temperaments on the court. Federer is cool, calm, moves about gracefully and makes it all look almost effortless. Nadal is the power player and feisty fighter who refuses to ever give up. Two old rivals on court again. Two tennis legends!

    You could not get two people one can admire at the top of their profession than Nadal and Federer. Obviously @Mamen 🐝 Delgado will be ecstatic if her man comes through, but the actuality of this match is it completes Federer's resume - because as dominant and record breaking as he has been, Nadal has been his achilles heel. and he Nadal has the winning record against Federer and will probably still own the head to head record - but defeat tomorrow will give Nadal five straight finals wins against Federer - whereas for Federer this could be one of his last forays into winning another title. Clearly Nadal has overcome his injury woes and there are possibly more finals to come for Nadal - but I think it a road which is shortening for Federer being much older than Nadal - and since Federer has been a great athlete but also a supreme role model for the sport - it would be nice for Federer to win this year.

    #14 #20 I couldn't be more impressed or grateful for your ability to "get it" and "communicate it" in your unique and powerful way @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. It is because of what you have connected to that I went into the field of Music Therapy and trained in collaboration with Art Therapists and Dance/Movement Therapists. That was over 30 years ago. What has been exciting to witness is that using, in this instance, the body through movement and dance, and taking it out of the health and mental health institutional community and into the mainstream and flow of our lives, enables us to return to our organic nature and get our bodies "in sync" with our minds. Anyway, you said it better than me. Thanks again Manjit.

    #18 Virag, this is what Naharin is quoted as saying about fear :

    [ ..." I don’t think I’ve gotten rid of my fear. I’m actually aware of the fear. Sometimes I enjoy being afraid. It’s less a matter of getting rid of the fear and more a matter of knowing that it’s all right to be afraid "... ]
    from http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/famed-choreographer-still-feels-the-fear-1.423779

    You have already confronted the primary fear and stepped forward, what I am enjoying tonight finding out about Naharin is that his thoughts recognize the body is alive and that he see's dance as a living expression. That is why when he says "sometimes I enjoy being afraid", he is so in tune and touch with his body that he reads and recognizes what his body tells him - this is a marvelous faculty. In discussing these things we use our head rather than our body - but when I think I notice most my fingers moving - my brain then serves my fingers and in that I know thoughts have traveled up both my arms to deposit thoughts.

    There are very few people who think of the body as vessel of intelligence, Bruce Lee was one of the rare people who understood putting great meaning to body and this is explored in The Art of Expressing the Human Body" http://bit.ly/2g4GuUb whereas Bruce Lee took that body intelligence into martial arts, Narahin has taken it into dance - and that is why I grasp his greatness.

    When we are scared, it is the foundation of what we are walking into that matters, the foundation that you have had the courage to walk into is full of meaning and spirit, courage that takes us into emptiness is blind folly, courage that takes us into life is why I am happy for you - this form of courage has meaning and in that meaning one finds their freedom, and then sometimes as Narahin says he enjoys being afraid and that it is all right to be afraid.

    #14 Ohad Naharin is a genius who goes against all mainstream. Making his dancers go out of the ballet training towards a movement that is fully pushing their bodies into unknown areas, is simply courageous. And it works. The video clip you've shared with me is incredible, and I have seen it before. Thank you for sharing. Going for a Gaga class for me was scary --- especially after 8 years of no training. But stepping into the 'scary' is where is start to grow.

    Oh! Virag Gulyas what have you unleashed here ! You have just put the name Ohad Naharin smack bang into my vocabulary, for when you mentioned freedom, it overwhelmed me to know the extent of freedom as dance philosophy this is. Incredible! I just ran the film trailer for Mr.Gaga and a whole new world opened up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6gd8xpFMsM a world that I love where freedom is tattooed as a way, as an expression, as a force that is born from a rigid culture, freeing itself from a constraint.

    This reminds me of the antonym side of the movie Whiplash - where Whiplash dictates a passionate man who loves drumming and is grounded into submission by a ruthless teacher - and the antonym here is Mr.Gaga - a dance expression that releases the ruthless world of dance. We already know what it takes to become a professional ballerina, the immeasurable sacrifice, the dream that is chased by many girls but then funneled into a excruciating and demanding test to emerge with the few and not many. Cue the movie Flashdance - but Flashdance was not about creating something new, but another recital of the hero's journey. For sure it dealt with class but it was not a philosophy and it certainly did not offer any form of freedom.

    You should feel justifiably liberated because you are clearly an early adopter of this transformation, this giving dance back to the people, the loosening of rigidity, the renewal of form and function, to exercise what one actually loves about this passion. The more I read http://www.danceadvantage.net/questions-about-gaga/ and http://gagapeople.com/english/ the more I honour your post and I thank you for opening the curtain for me and I say kudos to you for embracing this, for this is truly freedom.

    You are a great storyteller @Virag Gulyas and it always feels like it's coming straight from the heart.

    Because one of my pillars of life is movement (paradox intended), you made me think that it is not simply the freedom to move but how to move that makes the difference; the freedom lies in choosing the how.

    The other thing that I found "moving" in your story is when you say, "I understood more about my body today than during my whole rigorous dancer education.". Again, here the education lies in the freedom of movement and the understanding that results from that.

    Wow! Thank you for sharing your amazing life experience Virag and wishing you from strength to strength.

    Kudos to you Virag, for taking that leap after so long. I think your conclusion nails it: "So many of us stay in that tight leotard we force on ourselves - because, we get used to it, we feel too comfortable to leave. But don't stay because you got used it; because it is too comfortable. Wear that damn loose t-shirt and go free."
    Life is too short to be running around on a hamster wheel road to no where. No one ever got anywhere by running (or dancing ) in place. Moreover, I think it would be great if you did a Live Buzz (when ready) from your dance studio. I'm sure you're very good. Remember, we are all our worst critics. Good luck and dance on...

    Whenever I read health buzzes, it is like post-convention bounce that Democrats and Republicans experience and I might last a couple of days drinking green tea (not just because the health benefits are outlined here but a large number of my family members choose green tea), unfortunately I have never took the taste of green tea. So normally I go back to regular tea - the kind I grew up growing up in England - and even though I know that putting milk in black tea neutralizes some of it's health properties, I have not got to used to sugarless black tea either - but I sure like my cuppa tea butI wish one day it might be way more green.

    #2 I take around 4 cups of tea daily but I mix them. In the morning Earl Grey, after lunch red tea and the other 2 used to be green tea, but now I prepare a mix of thyme (which is great for the throat) and agrimony (which is called "the voice over plant") ;). I LOVE also Darjeeling tea but it dries as well the throat membranes, so... I mean no problem if I have a cup of green tea every now and then, but not possible 2 cups a day as it used to be.

    Thanks for your appreciation @Mamen 🐝 Delgado that is really unfortunate, yes one can take the capsules as a supplement, as with anything we eat or drink it should always be taken in moderation and never excessively.....by the way I'm not saying you were consuming too much green tea Mamen! the ideal intake for green tea is around 2 to 3 cups daily according to the University of Maryland Medical Center!

    I LOVE green tea but I had to stop taking it because it really dried mucous membranes of my mouth and throat, and when I went to the recording studies that caused undesirable noises to vocalize. I was thinking of taking green tea capsules to take advantage of all its properties. By the moment I can not drink it because of that secondary effect... Great article @Andrew Porter!!

    Sounds a brilliant idea, Dean-san, wrapping your roast beef in Yorkshire pud. Brings me back to my batchelor days in London when a group of us used to go down to the pub on Sundays then take turns at hosting Sunday lunch, which was a heavy meal back in those days. I had many, many futile attempts at making batches of Yorkies to go with the roast beef, until my mum steered me in the right direction over the phone from Scotland. I can still smell the aromas in that Kingston upon Thames kitchen - some good - some not so good. This was the same apartment that my girlfriend's cat got high on eating the leaves from a home grown 'pot' plant. 😻

    Great information Mark. Too often, I believe, the people doing these studies start with the end in mind, then only see the results which fit the conclusion they need. I've seen this same type of thing in other areas of science. Too often I think it has more to do with getting published and getting funding than getting truth.

    #3 Manjit, Kind words - thank you they are appreciated. My intent is to convey some perspective to health & wellness discussions. Often in this social media world, we are more focused on the sensational headline rather than explore the complexities of life, when it works and when it is dysfunctional, and from there make decisions. It is challenging to make that "voice" stand out. I am hoping that beBee is a vehicle to do that.
    My perspective is a little unique, culturally, academically and commercially. At least the blend is unusual. My research has changed how medicine is practiced in many areas but now my focus is on those critical final steps that link knowledge to consumers. Better information leads to better decisions and superior outcomes.
    Looking forward to more interactions and yes, please help promote beBee and its efforts to be more than a headline.

    As a layperson I appreciated the scientific explanation of food here in relationship to the body, and this demonstrated to me how much I am ignorant of the very inner biological processes that occur every single day of my life. It introduced many areas of human biology I would otherwise remained ignorant of and so this was quite an educational read for me.

    Dear Mark, a belated welcome to beBee. I do look forward to reading your contributions here on in, especially since my primary purpose of being here is to learn and the insights here open up new vista's regarding my own understanding of physical intelligence - so I personally welcome a reasoned approach to our health and inner biology very much.

    #1 Solid points Elizabeth. What happens in these association research studies is the labeling associated with what is in the diet but NOT the complex interplay as to what is ABSENT from the diet. In the case of heavy meat eaters it may be fiber, fruit or both, that can drive the data askew.
    The Saturated fat story is intriguing and evolving. Most certainly it was labelled as a BAD BOY for the last 40 years. But there are questions that certainly rose to the top this last year with a publication in the BMJ. What it detailed was a huge RCT that was done in Minnesota in the 60's. Not an association study but a true dietary RCT (subjects were in institutions). The comparators were (1) a group fed meat/butter etc so the higher amounts of saturated fats (2) vegetable oils . The goal was to lower cholesterol and LDL. And YES the vegetable oil group achieved that objective - lowered LDL and cholesterol - but paradoxically heart attacks strokes etc. increased dramatically. When this data was presented to the AHA it was basically shunned and despite its size never published. The dogma was already entrenched. But the BMJ resurrected it, after the Sydney Heart study data in 2013 found the exact same response. So LDL and cholesterol were not predictors of CV disease despite the massive industry that surrounds them as has happened in the 40 years since. I detailed this information in a LinkedIn post - here is the link - Bon appetit http://bit.ly/2ddAqaO

    I have never been one of those dietitian's to hop on the proverbial band wagon of total abstinence when studies suggest that a particular food is "bad" for you. I have always steered clear of radical recommendations that say "never eat this or that". I tend to eat a more vegetarian based diet, but this is a personal preference and it works for me. It would not work out well for my husband or many of the men that I have spoken to over the decades of my career in acute care dietetics. I won't challenge you that red meat is not a dietary no-no, but I will challenge you on the amount of saturated fat laden foods that American's consume. The problem is not red meat, the problem is the amount of red meat (and other sources of saturated fats) consumed in opposition to your sited instances of low fiber, low fruit, low vegetable consumption in the typical Standard America Diet (SAD). Additionally, the food we feed our cattle adds another layer to the red meat issue, grass fed cattle have a much improved saturated fat profile versus their grain fed counterparts, even down to the individual fatty acid complex with stearic acid being increased in grass fed cattle.

    It was great watching Usain Bolt win the 100 meters gold for the third straight time, a piece of history making we all expected barring the stupid rule of disqualification on the first false start. What escapes more unnoticed is the achievement of South Africa's Wayde van Niekerk everywhere except of course South Africa. Niekerk broke Michael Johnson's 17 year old 400 meters record to win Gold, and did it by winning from unfavourable lane 8 - it was nice seeing Usain Bolt embrace Niekerk after his own historic 100 meter victory, which is Bolt's way of saying the South African also did something rather special today.

    #12 Dear Lisa, I do have tip my hat to Wayde also because athletes will distance themselves from troubled people when it can affect their brand image, but Wayde was also inspired by Oscar Pistorius. He is friends with Pistorius and acknowledges his awful crime but he has not abandoned him and distanced himself - instead he acknowledges Pistorius's contribution and not condemn his friend to a lifetime of social judgement. One cannot have a movie worthy script without the moral dilemma http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/olympics/rio-2016/2016/08/14/wayde-van-niekirk-lashawn-merritt-usa-track-and-field-mens-400-meters-final-results/88737134/ here Wayde's thinking is not the norm, it is thinking fit for the 21st Century.

    Here you need to read the story of Mimi Silbert from San Fransisco and what inspired her to create the Delancey Street Foundation http://www.delanceystreetfoundation.org/circle.php such thinking is not the "lock them up and throw away the key", it is thoughtful and yet the practice Silbert deals with prisoner rehabilitation back into society is not some wall flower, but highly disciplined and based on tough expectations in a era where the psyche of incarceration has made the American prison system a cheap form of labour for corporations and for corporate ownership of the existing prison system.

    Moreover such a movie should not become another Disney feature film - it is best filmed as a serious look at who we are as humanity and what humanity is in the 21st Century, with the backdrop of unethical financial practices in sports and the illegal use of drugs to create athletes as machinery of media and equally the gold-digger mentality it also inspires a.k.a. the sad story of Marion Jones. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/athletics/7184067.stm Then we give full value to the measure of what I find here and strike up not a moralistic view but a human one.

Here in SA Wayde's coach Ans Botha is almost just as big a sensation. The great grandmother, who has been coaching athletics for five decades, last year attended her first IAAF Championship overseas. She watched the other coaches and athletes carefully and had this to say afterwards: “I only stole coaching ideas with my eyes. That is, if I see something that will work on my athletes, I will try it and implement it. That’s how I always try to bring something new in our training. They have to enjoy training; that’s very important. They say you’re never too old to learn, especially in athletics.”

    If this was an American athlete the media would have gone ballistic and heralded this achievement alongside Usain Bolt's victory. They did 17 years ago when they declared Michael Johnson's 400 meters record was phenomenal. Nierkerk just obliterated that record and nearly became the first man to run under 43 seconds - yet Bolt must have known this man's achievement himself because as he was celebrating his 3rd Olympic title, he went towards the crowd and there he hugged who else, but a South African athlete.called Wayde van Niekerk. I am sure that in South Africa they will talk of no one else but Niekerk - and he deserves massive recognition for this massive achievement.

    He still performs but the Billy Idol we remember is this young dude. That he is now 61 years old the only difference is that he used to look like a punk rock singer when he was with Generation X and today he looks like a rock and roller who can easily slip into the Rolling Stone lineup and people assume he was always with that band. Great song and good memories of our days in the playground when punk rock introduced pogo and made the school yard a pin-ball machine of bouncing bodies.

    #32 Presently, Bermuda is a bustling "town" - But quaint, it ain't. Looks can be deceiving. With serious traffic jams at times (daily?), too high driving speeds, cars too big for the narrow streets, drug issues. Cosmopolitan? Yes. More than it was way back when? Yes. I arrived for my first visit (1960s) when the first traffic light was installed. Since then, the British school and administrative systems are gone. The beautiful Bermuda accent more than lost in an Americanization mode. Once, everyone was more educated than most 1st world countries. That's more in line with "us" Lots of school and less content and results.Now, Bda mirrors our north american school systems where more than a thousand kids are warehoused much like in our set-ups. Not more advanced. Just more "efficient". Everything is more modern and better? Doubtful. Bermuda is like the rest of the world in the 21st century : a wondrous place in its own right, wondering where it will be next week, next month, next year. Just j=hope they keep the fast food outlets OUT! Their grocery store "home-made foods" counters are SUPERB!!! - Last chance at "tasting" the real Bermuda.

    #21 I'm sure they do! They were lucky, they traveled all over while living in England for 3 yrs. They spent their first year in a small flat just outside of London (forget the name of the town). My daughter flew there one Christmas and they all took the train to Paris for NY's Eve. On the way back they were the last train and come to find out there was a bomb threat to the tunnel, my son wouldn't tell his sister but she knew something was up. Katz's, will have to keep that in mind. I really want to visit NYC one day soon!

    #16 I think I'd like to join you men the next time you get together in your pink bermuda shorts, Ken in a dressing gown and well.. we can certainly ask a man in a kilt to join us too right? By the way Dean, my son and his wife lived in Surrey England for 2 years, they loved it there. Can you believe I've never been to NYC?

    #13 Some things work out in time and place that one can never intentionally recreate, and Kung Fu with David Carradine was one of them. Bruce Lee's wife asserts that the idea for the show was stolen from an idea her husband had for a show called "The Silent Flute" ironically made into a movie later after Lee's death starring Carradine https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circle_of_Iron Even if Bruce Lee could have starred in Kung Fu, it was Carradine that was best suited for the character and made the show, for Lee would have been too intense for such a role, whereas Carradine had a gentleness that helped the philosophy flow and did fit the character of the role. The role of Bruce Lee in coming up with the idea is still discussed http://www.kungfu-guide.com/brucelee.html but the quality of the tv series is now an all-time classic, which actually serves to introduce people people to Lee's own philosophical spirit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPwQbQekk38 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3BKnmtlMco

    #11 Dear @Irene Hackett they don't make TV series like this anymore, there is only time for lots of things and little time for less - the Kung Fu TV series for a show many people watched for the fight scenes also offered a lot to us sponge-people, there was a lot put into that series that now we can squeeze out :

    #7 The sponge reaggregation video brings us back to @Dean Owen because he mentioned Richard Attenborough in his buzz :-) so I call that sponge-worthy synchronicity. Regeneration also vindicates the movie character Groot https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uzn_OgwuVlQ but n terms of laugh-worthiness your "can't kill sponge" link is the tops. Now I did try to find a sponge smiling emoji but all I could find was a cheese wedge 🧀 so it is the thought that counts!

    WHAT'S UNDER UNDERDOGS?
    WHAT'S UNDER UNDERDOGS?In the movies you see some guys who’re bullied around by those who are luckier when it comes to money, looks, opportunities, etc. And invariably enough, whether we do good or bad in real life about these circumstances, we support the lower guys...

    #3 Nice oxymorons there, as things don't make sense but we still fight for what we believe in, and we go for the gusto if we can. No one ever told me to march on so strongly; I never thought I would even go to college. Ha. But my father made me do it. All it takes in life is for one single person to be there at the right time, so that the words they speak are forever etched in empowering them to strive hard. What an icon both Stallone and Rocky became, and yes. They may not have had their dues before Hollywood, but I believe that politics and popularity have more to do with the awards than actual talent. Rocky took responsibility for his own life, and he didn't let anyone lay a guilt trip on him for that. So hat's off to this man and his story!

    #4 In the first movie, Rocky found an opportunity with Apollo's invitation, @Max🐝 J. Carter. Actually it was second movie where he was forced to protect his honor. If you listen to the dialogues between him and Mickey especially in the first movie, you will notice that. In the third movie, he was challenged by both Clubber, and the discovery of his (so called) fake matches, so he was forced to go up the ring once again. In fourth, it was an honor call, in fifth he wanted to go back to his glorious days, and in sixth, yes, he had it thrown at him. But these were just the details of the story; the main question is that he was an underdog, and he did his best to take advantage of the opportunity, becoming a symbol for others in the process.

    #3 Unfortunately, Rambo is not Stallone's original creation, whereas Rocky is. Rambo was based on a real war hero named Audie Murphy, and First Blood (the only movie in the series that wasn't titled as Rambo) was based on his own story and book titled "To Hell and Back." And if you look at it really carefully, you will see that the main characters differs (a lot) from other Rambos in the series. Rambo in the first movie was a real person, others were pop fiction. At the other hand, this article is not about Stallone as an artist (still, I admire him a lot, don't get me wrong), but I used Rocky just as a model; just like you said yourself, there are a lot of other important underdog characters. :)

    Rocky didn't go after it, it got thrown at him in the first film. After that he didn't know what to do with or about it and he figured it out as he went. It was the film ROCKY BALBOA that showed this more than anything with another fight he didn't choose, he had it thrown at him.

    It's the greatness that you have shoved down your throat that brings out what you never thought you could do.

    Stallone did not just make character that drew people in, he created two. Rambo is just as important a creation, which invokes the injustice and betrayal people may unconsciously feel from a system they know profits the system. Today there is a celebration of the anti-hero in Marvel's character Deadpool. There were anti-hero moments during my life when the punk rock movement cut through my youth for a while. What I see is that we fall in love with the character and whether he is the underdog or coming back from Russia victorious, we have made him a part of our psyche. This could be seen in the disappointment in some members of the Oscar audience when Stallone did not win his expected Oscar for his role in Creed. At the same time it is still a shock that Taxidriver finished 2nd in the Oscars to Rocky. On that night the underdog sure did win big.
