Marching Thru 30 Famous Faces - Number Twenty-five: Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa

Rocky was such an inspiration for athletic focus back in my younger days. I'd watch one of the movies and/or listen to some of the music to set my mind on the race ahead of me. I used to be a runner. The Rocky theme and Eye of the Tiger really got my heart pumping!

Even today, from time to time I'll play one of the Rocky movies (except for number 5) while I draw and it provides a focus for producing artwork too. However, I do have to control myself when the Rocky theme comes on and force myself to stay seated and not jog around the room boxing the air. But other than that, it's not the distraction you'd think it would be! I mostly just listen to the movie when I draw anyway.

I haven't seen one of the Rocky movies for a while. It may be time to watch one again! Yo Rocky!
