Open Thread, “What Do You Want In The New Year?” Edition

Happy New Year errbody. I hope you had a glorious moment as Dec. 31 became Jan. 1. Holiday weekend over, it’s time to get back to some boxing business at hand.

Some of the changes I told you we might be making are in full bloom, some of the others are still flowering. I expect you’ll see more posts that don’t have the name “Tim Starks” on them this week as I continue with my vacation and as some folk start to contribute more. I’ll fill you in on the developments soon.

Enough meta. It’s Open Thread time. Conversation starter: What do you want from boxing in 2010? It could be anything — a certain fight, a certain business practice, some wackiness that you don’t actually mean.

Then, as usual, speak whatever is on your mind. Whatever. Anything.

Your musical selection is a complete coincidence given the initial subject of this Open Thread. It’s just the song that’s been going through my head.
