The hulk of a man with a beer in his hand he looked like a drunk old fool

But everybody they said watch out hey that's the Tiger Man McCool
He's had the whole lotta fights and he's always come out winner yeah he's a winner

You have to love this song. You have no choice.
There's a good lesson to be learned here.
I still Laugh 'til my side hurts!! Everytime! Thank you Shel & Bobby for reinforcing my coping skills formula..... . . Faith + Sense of Humor
OOPS! It got away before the 'punch line'.
Yeah, I grew up 'looking up' to those older guys because they didn't lose fights.
And boy, could those guys fight.
No guns, no knives, just fists.
Bottom line: they all died of less than natural causes.
Although they're dead, their 'legend' lives.
I guess that makes them each
'The Winner'.
Or does it?!

I could listen to this song over and over.
I asked myself why I like it so much.
Then the answer occurred to me:
I grew up in the most urban part of New Haven and all of the 'men of respect' were 'Winners'.
'Whitey' was a winner.
'Midgey' was a winner.
'Pinocchio' was a winner.
'The Winner' by Shel Silverstein.
Of course.
Who else?!
"...my eyes still see and my nose still works and my teeth're still in my mouth.
And y'know I guess that makes me the winner".
Beautiful!
