At today’s Metro:
“Rocky becomes statue in Serbia.”
My first reaction was “WHY?”
Okay, this small Serbian village called Zitiste chose Rocky Balboa to represent itself after years of hardship. Somehow the village people could relate to Rocky’s struggle to win his place in the society.
Everyone needs a hero, a sort of inspiration to go on despite all the hardships and challenges in life. But a fictional boxer from Hollywood?
I won’t be surprised if their official anthem is “Eye of the Tiger.”
