Knuckle Up #453: Eugene S. Robinson goes to a GSP-sanctioned 'Dark Place' + emerges not older, but wiser/bitter

KNUCKLE UP host EUGENE S. ROBINSON in Round #453 warns off casual listeners as he delves into the deeper and darker recesses of the warrior mind, TRAVIS BICKLE, determinism, EVAN TANNER, JON JONES, GLOVER TEXEIRA, JACARE, JOSE ALDO and the realization that there's only one way to get to the grave: kicking ass and screaming.

Knuckle Up Round #453: EUGENE S. ROBINSON ["S" is for "Slayer"] dispenses with the niceties in this round, warns off casual listeners and does a show only for the hardcore, OXBOW fans, or those who think they know pain. Drawing broad parallels between EVAN TANNER, the inescapability of a destiny anchored to DNA, and why one of the noblest callings known to humankind is what happens in the cage every time that cage door slams, Round #453 is stone cold sober, sobering and not for the faint of fucking heart.

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 MIDNIGHT CALLER with GARY COLE. His latest movie Mother Mortar, Father Pestle just opened. And for those who were in any confused by all of this we'll make it quite clear: he will not quit.

And did we mention our sponsors? And have you bought a shirt yet? No? Perfect. Keep offending the gods.
