A Denny Moyer Sidenote

By Bill O'neill

Here's a little "tag" to the Denny Moyer story:

A cousin of mine was a reporter on the Portland Oregonian newspaper back in the 1970s, and he worked with a fellow named Dennis Moyer--no relation to the famous boxer who shared the same name. One day a guy carrying a pistol barged into the Oregonian newsroom, looking for "Denny Moyer." It seems that Denny Moyer the pugilist was having a steamy affair with the guy's WIFE, and the guy wanted to "have a little talk with him" about it. By the time the police arrived, people in the office had the guy pretty well convinced that it was a case of mistaken identity, and that their Denny Moyer was not the guy who was screwing the man's wife.
