He Fought Like a Large Mountain Cat, A Puma Perhaps?


sm_hud0322zJohn Mellencamp ruined sports for much of America with his “This is our country” travesty that was featured in EVERY commercial break of every sporting event for several months. That song was and is the worst.

However, let’s move past that to where the now former-Cougar Mellencamp is a proud papa cat of one Hud Mellencamp who, Thursday night, took home a division title in the Indiana Golden Gloves boxing tournament. The 14 year-old won a 4-1 victory in the 132-pound senior-division.

Thanks to his victory, Mellencamp will represent Indiana in the national Golden Gloves tournament May 4-10 in Salt Lake City.

After his victory Mellencamp was given a trophy and a big hug from his dad; truly he’s just an American kid, growing up in the heartland, doing the best he can.

    in defense of that song, it’s pretty well documented that mellancamp is like “go nuts paying me so i can give it to farmers and shit.” i could be paraphrasing.

    also, all of the dark verses are missing for the chevy commercial. and mccain tried to use it during his campaign and mellancamp was all like “please, no.”

    the bottom line, it’s not really his fault. and it’s sorta funny because that whole album undermines the jingoism portrayed in the truck commercials.
