Whimsical Windows - Ringside Rays


It's time again for the preponderance of portals in the meme Whimsical Windows-Delirious Doors. For me, I revert to last Saturday and the Triano-Rossi Youth Boxing Tournament, developed and promoted by the Mayor, Dave Cassetti (with a 4-6  amateur boxing record in the early 1980s), of our small city of Ansonia CT. The development, determination, discipline and dedicated work of all the kids participating is rewarding to see. What of the venue? It is the Naugatuck (CT) YMCA, opened in 1924. These views are ringside at wheelchair height, and the charm of building such as steam radiators and old windows is easily seen, the late afternoon sun filtering in. Retro venue, determined kids - it was a good time!
