hometown hero

way back in september i showed you a photo of a beautiful chain-stitched boxing jacket that had been worn by pasadena's hall of fame boxer, canto "tnt" robledo.  i had mentioned way back then that the villa park community center had a display honoring his legacy, but until this past week i hadn't seen it.

tucked back in a corner of the community center is this incredible installation.  if you'd like a closer look you can click on the image above to zoom in, or better yet, stop by and see it for yourself.
