It Wasn't Rocky Balboa vs Jake Lamotta

In 1980 Robert De Niro starred as Jake Lamotta in the film Raging Bull.  Likewise beginning in 1976 Sylvester Stallone starred in several Rocky movies.  Since it was raining so hard today we decided to go over to the local multiplex to see Grudge Match where De Niro and Stallone starred as fictional boxers Billy "The Kid" McDonnen and Razor Sharp.  They originally fought each other 30 years ago, but came out of retirement to fight each other again.

During the movie an inconsiderate person started to use her smartphone which created some visual discomfort in a darkened theater.  I asked the person to put it away.  When she persisted Karen went out to get the theater manager to stop her.  If you want to surf the web or text message, why go to the movies?  Just stay home.  I guess some people are just addicted to their phones.
