Come Out And Watch A Bunch Of Financial Services Hacks Get Voluntarily Punched In The Face

Next Wednesday night is the annual Corporate Challenge Boxing tournament, and beyond the fact that the event is for charity, $45 (or $1,400 for a ring-side table) seems like a pretty reasonable fee to be at least mildly amused at the sight of your “colleagues” taking to the ring. The participants hail from Morgan Stanley, Barclays Capital, RBC, and Chimera Securities, among other firms, have give themselves nicknames like “Plastic Paddy,” “The Huntington Hammer,” “Dragon Fist” and “Mister Softee,” and have prior boxing experience as diverse as “several tournaments” to “My friend once punched me in the face on a weekend in Prauge.” Let’s meet them now.

Peter Williamson AKA The Huntington Hammer/Barclays Capital/27 years old, 5’11, 195 lbs:

David Doherty AKA Plastic Paddy/RBC/27 years old, 5’6, 142 lbs:

Scott Shuryn/Morgan Stanley/25 years old, 5’10, 205 lbs:

Greg Tran AKA Mister Softee AKA Dragonfist/Chimera Securities/31 years old, 5’10, 140 lbs:

    So how irrelevant has Gossiparino become. This used to be one of his favorite events to pretend that he was almost important – not to mention maybe a hack boxer who never had the balls to try to make something of himself. He has been reduced to a FBN Blowhard who has to tweet his stories out in advance to get any audience whatsoever. Boy, did FBN do CNBC a favor – not to mention the rest of us who don’t have to listen to the moron any longer.

    And I see that “Bought and Paid For” has now sunk in sales to the level of the “Sellout” (that book that had no shot of selling out despite constant promotion by CNBC. They’re both hanging at the 50,000 mark on Amazon.

  62. One other issue issue is that video games are usually serious in nature with the most important focus on mastering rather than fun. Although, we have an entertainment feature to keep your children engaged, each one game is usually designed to work towards a specific experience or curriculum, such as numbers or science. Thanks for your post.

  63. Thanks for your submission. Another item is that just being a photographer consists of not only problem in capturing award-winning photographs but in addition hardships in establishing the best photographic camera suited to your requirements and most especially issues in maintaining the grade of your camera. That is very true and visible for those photography fans that are directly into capturing the nature’s engaging scenes : the mountains, the particular forests, the actual wild or seas. Going to these adventurous places certainly requires a dslr camera that can live up to the wild’s nasty area.

  84. One thing I have actually noticed is that there are plenty of common myths regarding the lenders intentions if talking about foreclosure. One fairy tale in particular is the fact that the bank wishes to have your house. The financial institution wants your hard earned dollars, not the house. They want the bucks they lent you with interest. Staying away from the bank will only draw a foreclosed realization. Thanks for your publication.
