Updated picks

Real fast before Game 1 starts, so I can show you all how wrong I am again, here are my picks for the Championship Series.

ChiSox over Angels in 5.

Astros over Cards in 7.


"Awesome is an overused word in the 1980s, but Mike Tyson is absolutely awesome."
-Tyson/Young fight, 1985

It's Tyson week on ESPN classic, and they're showing some oooooold school mid 80's gems, back when Mike was an up-and-comer, and he could really be called Iron. The man was a fucking god. I don't know why, but every time I see a "Behind the Glory" or "Sports Century" about him, I end up weeping in commiseration, especially during the part when Cus D'Amato dies. If ever there was a real life tragic figure, Tyson is its embodiment.

Oh well, time for baseball.

I don't care how far he falls from the land of normalty, it will always be "Mike Tyson's Punch Out!" to me.

Dude, no less than three times a year I'll try my hand at beating that game, and I always fail miserably once I get to Tyson. One punch knockout! Wtf! There's no time to memorize his moves!

Mike Tyson's life really was a tragedy. He could have gone down in history as the greatest boxer ever.
