Every once in a while, you cover an event where you leaving going, “Oh my goodness, I hope I can write well enough to do what just happened justice.”

As strange as it sounds, the evening I spent covering celebrity boxing marked one of those stories for me.

See: Inside the Celebrity Boxing Federation.

It reminded me of that Mark Twain quote: Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities. Truth isn’t.

My night began with me talking to Rodney King in a hotel hallway, after which I sat ringside with Michael Lohan (actress Lindsay Lohan’s father and an “interesting character in his own right), and I concluded the evening by interviewing Jose Canseco at a strip club. You can’t make things like that up – and they make for a great story.

Anyway, I think the Page 2 piece turned out really well.
