No, that's not the pitch for the next Rocky movie. It's how Christopher Rivera's family chose to remember him at his wake Friday in San Juan. The 23-year-old fighter (who at 5-15 is likely used to being dead on his feet) was shot Sunday; no arrests have been made.
The funeral home has staged similar wakes for others, AP reports, with one featuring a deceased man riding his motorcycle — which suddenly seems a mighty popular way to send off the dearly departed.
