What’s the Story Behind the Mick’s T-Shirts?

You may have seen a lot of different people sporting the Mick’s T-shirts. For some that are in the new generation they may not know the real story behind this which is very intriguing. This is they T-shirt that will bring back to memory the Rocky film series. This is one of the characters that was taking on a very important role in this series. It is a character by the name of Michael Goldmill which was shortened for Mick or Mickey. It was actually Sylvester Stallone himself that created this character.

For those at that have followed the Rocky film series there is no doubt they will fondly remember Mickey in his outstanding role. He was played by Burgess Meredith. Throughout this series the story behind Mickey is that he was born to a Jewish family and was a boxer from 1922 to 1947 in a professional sense. Although he was great at what he did he never reached any level of fame. Upon retirement he opened the gym in Philadelphia that was dedicated to boxing only and it was called Mighty Mick Boxing. The goal of Mick was to be able to train fighters. Here is where the famous Rocky Balboa comes into Mick’s life. Rocky don’t forget didn’t give himself much credit for having any potential and Mick didn’t give a much respect either, however Mick knew in his heart that Rocky had what it takes to be an exceptional boxer.

While Rocky was certainly the star of the series there is no doubt that without Mick playing the role throughout partial segments of the series that it would’ve been as powerful as it was.

After all, it was Mick’s work that brought Rocky to fame and the attachment the grew between these two created a powerful impact in the storyline. There are plenty of T-shirts that revolve around this series but those that became equally as famous and important as those that depicted Rocky were the Mick T-shirts. These strike a real chord with those that are into boxing and particularly trainers who perhaps had a deeper respect for Mick then perhaps they did with Rocky himself. If Mick had not taken a chance on Rocky who’s to say that this series would have become as popular and famous as what it was and the storyline itself really hits home with reality in the boxer’s world.
