Subject: RE: Paul Simon's 'The Boxer' on SNL, 29-Sept
Take a real good look at the last verse when you click on the blue blicky at the beginning of the thread.

Also, I'm wondering if the boxer may be a metaphore for NYC, its' love/hate relationsip with itself. then the final verse is a sort of release, finally coming to grips that it is what it is and keeps on. Just an observation.
