Throw Back Thursday ....The "famous and the infamous"

For "Throw Back Thursday" ...for the start of "The Chicago Golden Gloves Finals tonight" .....for the jurors in the Boston Marathon bombing trial finding "Dzhokhar Tsarnaev" guilty on all 30 charges including 17 that carry a possible penalty of death ...For the celebration that the state of  Massachusetts carry's Capital Punishment ( I believe be-Heading with a dull knife would be a proper punishment ) ..

Pictures below are some of the famous and the infamous images I have captured over the years. Everyone will recognize Senator Obama but few would recognized Tamerlan Tsarnaev from the Salt Lake City 2009 Golden Gloves National.  Tamerlan Tsarnaev (Dzhokhar is his brother)  was most likely the driving force planning in the Marathon Bombing who was shot and died while being apprehended on April 19, 2015.

I pretty sure when the police (rightfully so) filled Tamerian Tsarnaev full of lead and his brother ran over him , that stupid grin went away.

The plan was to show a few more famous and few more infamous (I know I have a couple shots of  Rod Blagojevich that are golden around here ...But I'm running out of time. Time to pack up and head to Cicero Stadium for the beginning of the three days running of the Chicago Golden Gloves.

See you there ...First bell 7:30 ..
