Daily Loan

It’s Saturday night and I’m home, so I’m watching HBO’s Boxing After Dark. Tonight’s featured fight is between Rey Batista and Daniel Ponce De Leon (which was so short and lame it was over by the time I finished this post).

The winner of tonight’s fight made me think of my 8th grade social studies teacher. When he was teaching us about new world explorers, he of course covered the legendary Juan Ponce DeLeon. My teacher was an ancient man who had an unusual way of pronouncing certain words. Ponce DeLeon to him was Ponce Da Daily Loan. Would it surprise you to learn he retired a few years after my 8th grade year?
