Knuckle Up #363: Condit-Alves, Don't Cares into Cares, the analysis of triumph + what the doctor ordered

Literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" "perspective" to CONDIT-ALVES UFC Fight Night, the assorted failures of triumphalism, why the 21st century's celebration of losers makes us winners, Don't Cares becoming Cares [Oliviera, Bektic, Rony] and helping erase the stink of the last few weeks, the Nazis' failures to generate any art of any substance and a long look ahead. And shit.

In Round #363 irrepressible "cut-up" and beloved KNUCKLE UP host EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Stymie"] takes the lemons of a previously Don't Cared card and turns them into the lemonade of the waiting roomed CARLOS CONDIT + THIAGO ALVES, a meditation on why though the winners write the histories they can't write hit songs, why drinking on the air is better than drinking off the air and the vitriol of a rabid and frothing inveighing against intemperate mother-in-law speech.

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 (and yes, a Cosby story is in the works), a Miller Genuine Draft commercial, and had his own TV show in Germany called? "The Eugene Robinson Show."
