Knuckle Up Round #452: EUGENE S. ROBINSON ["S" is for "Snake Pliskin"] struggles back from the depressive side of the manic-depressive seesaw of ROUND #453 [yes, he runs his numbers backward. Email him and ask him why if you care: firstname.lastname@example.org. WE have no idea.] and jumps feet first into the cooling depths of FOUR HOURS OF PROFESSIONAL BOXING: yes. The highs, the lows, the interminability of the 12 rounds, the masterfulness of boxing masters and the tie-ins back to MMA, the racial underpinnings of combat sports and the comparison between ANDERSON SILVA and FLOYD "MONEY" MAYWEATHER, JR. If last week did not cause you to kill yourself? Enjoy.
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." And in a weirder moment yet? Co-hosted with ESPN's STUART SCOTT a Superbowl fashion show in Tampa. [free t-shirt to whoever can find that video for us.] AND appeared on MIDNIGHTCALLER with GARY COLE. His latest movie Mother Mortar, Father Pestle just opened.
