Mickey Rourke was a big heartthrob after "Diner." He wasn't boxing that much, was he? I think it was just really bad plastic surgery. Glad to see that he's had a career resurgence. 
Would like to hear some other cuts from this LP.

Try as I might, I cannot understand the adulation Bruce Springsteen continues to receive. His "I'm just a common guy speaking out for the common man" act got real old for me years ago while his current music sounds like variation on a previous theme. Yawn.....

God, I loved The Wrestler!  Mickey Rourke's moment ... every bit as powerful as De Niro in Raging Bull (which I thought was a masterpiece).   And I applauded Sean Penn's nod to Rourke during Penn's acceptance speech for Milk.  Those two knew ... better than anyone in the room, or any of the millions watching, who deserved to be up there.

This song (during the closing credits) captures the spirit of the movie nicely.  

One-legged dog? Really? Time for a GIS. {#Think}

Looked more like he was dropping his own load off at the Superbowl. This song is right in line with his Guacamole Dip/Chicken Fingers performance on Sunday....  {#Stupid} It's Boss Time! {#Frustrated}

 

The "load" is actually that comment, but to each his own, I guess.

I've been a loyal Springsteen fan since the very beginning.  Based on what I've heard from this album so far it doesn't sound like one of his best ones.

Watch him blow the roof off the dump at the Super Bowl tomorrow, though.

What a strange song, kinda sounds like Bruce Dylan but have to admit its growin' on me
Hmmm...

I kinda like this one.

Nothing new.  Same Bruce for the past 20 years.
Nah. No way. C'mon. This is tripe.
