Five Life Hacks from Rocky Balboa

I'm a child of the Star Wars generation. Lucas' sci-fi blockbuster came out when I was 12 and I saw it—I think—about 20 times that summer (pre-VHS mainstream, so I had to go to the movie theater every time). But as I've grown older, it was Rocky, the Best Picture of 1976, that resonates with me still today. I own all six of the saga on DVD and, even though I'm willing to admit that not all of them are real winners and offer in some ways the egotism and airbrushed cheesiness of 1980s Stallone, I still love the creation of Rocky Balboa and his particular outlook on life.
