Bert Sugar, The Fedora and Cigar

There are times you get on a train, sit down and enter into a conversation with a man, a most amazing man who begins to tell you a story, about a candy bar jingle, being a lawyer and how boxing was his life now.  You have no idea who he is so he asks you to take a picture of him, it’s obvious your a photographer (you have all your gear with you).

You go to snap the picture, he stops you and says wait: puts on a fedora and grabs a cigar, places it all just right then says okay.

He shakes my hand and tells me his name: Bert Sugar and tells me to look him up.

I head back to the hotel and google search him

Mouth open,  I was honored to take your photo sir, simply honored.
