    You could say that Bernard Hopkins has been hit in the head many, many times throughout his life. And you wouldn’t be wrong.

    A few months ago, I thought I’d wait out the Conan tickets thing. They went on sale at the height of his revolutionary status, and I wasn’t enough of a Conan regular to buy them up so soon in advance. Then came the Flyers run, and as the show approached, I was looking forward to…
