KNUCKLE UP #351 Why being the head of the UFC has got to be the worst job in the world

New, 20 comments

Literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" "perspective" to KNUCKLE UP and this week's counterintuitive take: his heart going out to The Bald One who after RUMBLEGATE, RONDAGATE, JONNYBONEYJONEYGATE and a half a dozen other GATES we ain't even heard of yet, has got to be asking himself "what's it all about Alfie?" So witness a Robinson percentage take on how much of his other bad behavior should be excused for a workload that would kill you or him. But mostly probably you.

In Round #351 KNUCKLE UP host, globetrotter and drinker of fine wines EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "SURLY"] cries salty tears of sympathy for The Bald One and wonders if perhaps he's been terribly misunderstood all along. Oh yeah? Yeah.

And for those purists out there? A 40 minute show necessitated a great piece he had on Nazis but he'll b sure to double down next week when discussing the rat lines that moved from Germany through British Palestine post-1945 but before the creation of the state of Israel.

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."
