Cant wait until the movie comes out so it can fail and I can stop reading about how "wonderful" he is. Im embarassed to live in a city where white trash is glorified.

How many times can one person say 'Umm' in a two minute span. Not taking anything away from Mickey but do we really need to refer to him as Lowell's favorite son ? The names Kerouac or Tsongas ring a bell to anyone ? The 80's called, they want their turtle neck sweater back.
OMG, Deb Belanger is THE worst public speaker in history! And, did you notice that she cackles when she laughs?

Not sure how old you are but to consider Paul Tsongas a nobody is really short sided. I don't expect you to even understand Jack Kerouac, but both brought positive energy to Lowell's history, not appearing in the arrest log for bar fights throughout their adulthood.
and their children continuing the legacy of white trash-ed-ness? IN and OUT of the dailies much? Seriously! Mickey & Dickie - if you two were truly contributor to Lowells, you'd ensure that "you'se" and your family stayed out of the dailies, the court system and ACTUALLY improved the lives of your families.

Spend 75 dollars for a ticket and pray you don"t sitt in front of the Ecklunds and wards family. and if you do do not tell them to keep it low, you will get a beating guarantee. be carefull they love to sucker punch.

Don't usually comment on blogs but just want to wish Mickey luck and congratulations on the film. Nice to see someone make it. Don't pay any attention to the negative people enjoy the film.

I used to serve Dickie freebies at Cupples Square Liquors...nips and half-pints of ginger brandy... He never caused any trouble with me, but he sure was hanging with some real losers. I wish him and the family the best... I hope the film is a hit.

Does anyone really know who inspired Dicky and Micky......because I do!!! Seems like you all forgot who the real boxers were in Lowell...what a shame!! Maybe some of you old timers out there will remember who I'm talking about and if you don't, shame on you!!! I been around Alice and her family for a long time and I'm disappointed that credit was not given where it ORIGINALLY started!! Give credit where it is deserved and take credit when due.
