It was almost 10 a.m. and The Fighter was nowhere to be found. "I just got him on the phone," said Frank Muldoon, just moments before Lowell boxing legend "Irish" Micky Ward was supposed to appear at the Industrial Avenue rotary yesterday for the unveiling of a rock in his name.

This is not enough for this hero who will soon be a great legend from the City of Lowell.How about a parade down town during the festival of lights? How about renaming a highway after him , or even better let's rename the City to "Wards Town" LOOK AT ALL THE PRAISE AND CELEBRATION WE PILE ON THAT BUM & ALCOHOLIC JACK KAROWACK (sp.). but the difference is that Jack is loved and embraced by all the liberals and pin heads of Lowell, and Micky is loved and revered by the working blue collar class, with little or no political clout until the next big local election. God bless Micky Ward

Mickey was not the alcoholic drug abuser, that was his Brother. He does a lot of charity work for people in the city that he does not brag about and he donates a lot of his free time to helping kids who would otherwise be on the streets after school, up to no good. He is a good person with a good heart. He set a goal for himself and has achieved it. He stayed in Lowell because he loves the city. Most people who do well leave Lowell as soon as they can, at least he gives back to his community.

Please don't fight over which brother has been arrested the most times. Let's just call it a "split decision".
