Andy Ruiz is why we love sports

Aaron Bodus

Pssst! Hey, not sure if you heard, but there was some pretty big sports news that hit our sunbaked vale a couple of weeks ago. We had a local boy, Andy Ruiz Jr., punch the lights out of a British fella to claim the heavyweight championship of the world.

What’s that? You have heard? This very paper’s put out a half-dozen stories on the thing?
