Ya he does. In the RB script which was in issue the first 3 issues of Sly magazine, Rocky, Marie, and Steps go to the animal shelter, when they get there, Rocky points and says, "Thats a good one." In the magazine it says: "He points to an ugly, flat-headed mutt."

Hi Everyone...

I know this is a Rocky Balboa Blog, and not a Contender Blog, but does anyone know WHAT TIME it's on? I checked ESPN Tuesday night and didn't see it.

Anyone have information? Thanks...

It's been 30 years, I doubt Butkis is still around.

Contender comes on at 10 o'clock eastern time zone.

I heard that if Rocky Balboa is a go at the Box Office that a part 7 could be in the cards. PLEASE tell me this ISN'T true. Let's end the franchise on a high note. This movie looks awesome. But let's not over do it.

Thoughts anyone?

For an earlier blogger, Butkus has been dead since 1981.
Rocky loves his animals and it's fitting that Punchy looks down and out as Rocky has been there himself and with the underdog (pardon the expression)
What a genuinely beautiful picture.

At the end of the trailer it says Rockythemovie.com, which redirects to here.

Butkus can do exactly that to me, lol, Punchy rules, looks real old, scruffy and worn down, Rocky looking at himself almost, except with big ears and a collar

Blogger lovinrocky said...

I guess I am just not getting this "Punchy" vs. "Butkus" thing. Do you people not realize that Butkus was in the Rocky movies 30 YEARS AGO! Ya think he's still around? Let it go. Butkus was a great dog but let's let him rest in peace and let's move on. K? K.

Stallone rocks-I think he is brilliant, not just an actor as some may think; but the whole package- a very underrated actor as far as people mocking his return to this final installment.
The whole idea of doing it his way from the beginning has inspired me to follow my dreams. Success is the best revenge-but never forgetting where you came from is even better.
I predict only greatness from here on out-now if him et Schwarzenneger would get together

God damn, that's one ugly dog. If I saw that mutt in the street while driving my car, I'd be doing a disservice to the world to not run over it.

Jesus, is it related to that ugly ass Sam dog (ugliest dog in the world) that died a while back? Christ almighty, that dog was the spawn of satan.
