Yo, I Wanna Eat Your Children!

On this day back in 1997 Mike Tyson utterly shocked and amazed the world (yet again) by disqualifying himself in the third round of the Tyson vs. Holyfield II fight by taking a nice healthy bite of Evander's ear. I'm not quite sure where to start with this guy. In my opinion Tyson is probably one of the most entertaining people to watch on the planet. As much as I hate reality TV, if there was a show on 24 hours a day that just followed Iron Mike around I'd probably watch it (by the way, why hasn't this been done yet this is an absolute fool-proof slam dunk). I mean how can this guy still be walking the streets and not have been tossed in the looney bin? Nevermind his comments about wanting to eat children, if any of you were lucky enough to catch the skit on the Jimmy Kimmel Show when Tyson was taking care of his pigeons you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. Just knowing that Iron Mike is out there somewhere, mingling with society, makes me both chuckle to myself knowing that he is completely defying all the rules of common sense and reason but also scares the hell out of me because at any point he could pick up a little five year old and take a bite out of his thigh and think nothing of it. So here's to you Mike..."Your style is impetuous and your defense is still impregnable"!!!!!!!!!

This is one of my favorite interviews with Iron Mike where he pulls out all the favorites. One of the best parts of this interaction is the absolutely horrified look on Jim Gray's face when Tyson snaps "What!" at him. Gray doesn't know whether to sh*t himself or just run away as quick as he can. God, just think, Tyson probably does this to people on a daily basis. We need to get this show together.

You're preaching to the choir, bro! I've been calling for Tyson's 24/7 reality TV show for years now (ever since his week on Kimmel) -- see the 4/7/07 posts about this subject.
