Knuckle Up #440: UFC Fight Night 33 Breakdown, the greatness of back-to-back gloat + a French tickler

In Round #440 KNUCKLE UP host EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Slice 'Em"], delivers a ragged-assed tribute to life on tour in the French military garrison in Bayonne (not New Jersey) with the estimable band L'ENFANCE ROUGE while meditating on the MARK HUNT v. BIGFOOT wheel of eternal justice, SHOGUN's continued relevancy, the BADER refusal to receive his LOST BATTALION commission and how he knew all along that despite his love for PAT BARRY that Barry's GICTA status would rule the day, and it did. Add to this copious amounts of red, red wine and you have a show that Robinson will be begging us to take down as soon as he wakes up. But we won't. No we won't. Because if there's one thing we learned from him it's this: there's no better time to kick a man than when he's down. Specifically passed out on his bed at the Best Western. So let's have at it.

Eugene S. Robinson host of Knuckle Up and author of Fight: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You'd Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking [Harper Collins], A LONG SLOW SCREW [Robotic Boot] and a play called THE INIMITABLE SOUNDS OF LOVE; A THREESOME IN FOUR ACTS [Southern] also sings for a band called OXBOW and appeared in Bill Cosby's Leonard Part 6, a Miller Genuine Draft commercial, and had his own TV show in Germany called? "The Eugene Robinson Show." He has two new records out now"SAL MINEO" with JAMIE STEWART from XIU XIU and STRANGER BY STARLIGHT...you should buy them. Or any of the ones by Oxbow for that matter.

OR....you could dig his garage sale: http://theconnextion.com/oxbow/garagesale/
