There are 116 comments on the Lowell Sun story from Nov 21, 2010, titled City honors its real-life 'Rocky'. In it, Lowell Sun reports that:

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.

Yeah, because we all know that most cities have no gangs, drugs, etc etc. Why are you people so f'ing miserable?

As soon as you cross the city line you're handed a crack pipe.
You're ridiculous! When did you live in Lowell? When was the last time you were in Lowell? Now you live in Maine with all the large foreheaded people who are all inbread.There is only a small minority of nitwits that give Lowell a bad name. There are a lot of great and good people in Lowell. You have no idea what you are talking about.Don't dump on Lowell until you've walked in a Lowellian's shoes.

Well, you obviously don't know him. So many people say they "know" him...but really they don't. So many people here say they don't like him, trash talk him and his family, but then when they see him, they're the first people to smile, shake his hand and strike up a conversation with him. The "loser" place he frequents is THE GYM! If that's a "loser place" where do the cool kids go?

Funny how everyone turns Mormon when it comes to the guy having a few beers! I'm sure you and almost everyone on here has had their fair share of beverages containing alcohol. Who cares?

Even funnier, there's always one that has to attack someone's post for the way it's written, or spelling errors. That says "You had no good point to make, so attack wording!" You didn't even proof your own post.

we make sure you get your facts straight. Micky was never in jail or smoked crack. He use to work for the DOC in Billerica!!!! I'm not saying he has never done anything wrong but he is human. HE donates his time and money back to this city. He never asked anybody to put the rock there. Why do people have to be a hater about the fact he set goals in life and ended up going beyond his dream. Best guy you will ever meet. All you talkers out there will be the first to shake his hand if he walked into a room and ask to take a pic. PLEASE!!! Time to leave the guy alone and enjoy his life. Congratulation MICKY WARD!!!
nicely said, i think micky should be recognized for being a good roll model for children and true hero of lowell!
