OK, is that not your favorite photo of your day, or week, or maybe month?
Bob Dylan, the legendary rock/folk icon, standing proud with the fighting Congressman, Manny Pacquiao, who took an extra couple of minutes from his training regimen to shoot the bull with Hall of Fame singer-songwriter at the Wild Card Gym in LA today.
No offense to Floyd Mayweather, who is known to pal around with the Biebs, but in my book anyway, Pacman gets the win in the comparison game of who hangs with cooler crooners.
Our Wild Card source tells us that the 72-year-old Dylan was waiting at the gym for Pacman and when Manny arrived for a session with Coach Roach and company, The Bobfather–sorry Mr Arum, I'm talking Bobby D, here–and the hitter chatted for a couple minutes.
In case your mind was blown and you can't quite wrap your brain around that Jpeg, it's actually not as weird as you might think. Dylan's actually a huge fight fan, and knows his stuff. He used to train and get tutorials from Bruce “The Mouse” Strauss, a resumer builder type who went 77-53-6 fighting (and sometimes half-fighting) from 1976-1989.
