    I say the hobo,

  2. Mexigogue says:

    It’s time for him to fade into Bolivian.

  3. guy in the UNLV Jacket says:

    Is that in Bolivia

  4. Mexigogue says:

    Ostensibly.

  5. Phelps says:

    It’s a good thing that the hobo won and is getting press coverage, because I’m pretty sure that I saw Glenn Reynolds hiding in the crowd in the photos. If he just faded into Bolivia as just another Tyson victim/snack lunch, he’d be a goner.

  6. Mexigogue says:

    Hooray. Two miles for me today. Now repeat every other day from now on and metabolism should kick in nicely!

  7. HMT says:

    metabolism goes through the roof with CORE training (getting more of your muscles to become active) mexi.. talk to me if you want more on this.. there are things you can do to suppliment your running that would really get yer shit firin’…

    back to tyson – did any of you actually pay for that shit?

    Yay! Pizza dipping strips for me today! Damnit, I need to stop being a lazy asshole already.

    Mexi, wanna be my work-out partner? Since you seem so motivated and all.

    I like the new picture, too. My son was all, “Who’s that?!” “Did you give him that mask?”

  9. Mexigogue says:

    HMT, I’m lifting weights (heavy ones for building mass) so that my body has to continuously burn energy in creating muscle mass. I’ll post a progress picture in 10 days (that’s 30 days after my initial “before” picture.

  10. Jenn says:

    Did you watch or no?

  11. Mexigogue says:

    Haha Jenn, I was wondering if you were going to mention the picture.

    I didn’t watch the fight. When I got PPV to watch the Tyson bite off Holyfield’s ear I told myself that was the last time.

    A couple or three weeks ago, I was supposed to go to Tulsa and work a corner for a boxing match. I chose not to because boxing promoters are liars and I value truth over money…usually.

    Anyway, one of the reasons offered for me to attend was that Mike Tyson would be there.

    I said that I did not want to meet Mike Tyson because he might bite me.

    Hey. Is he kin to the Tysons that sell chicken frying parts?

  13. Mexigogue says:

    Work a corner? Would you be the guy who stitches people up between rounds? I always thought it would be keen if they stitched a guy up and put mascara on him real quick in between rounds!

  14. Phelps says:

    They should have you in the corner, Mexi. That way if the boxer says “cut me” you would be in there with a switchblade before the trainer could argue. You could be a boxing ninja.

  15. Citizen Quasar says:

    “Working A corner” in one easy lesson:

    1. Lift a stool up off the floor and place it in the corner of the ring so the boxer can sit down.

    2. Pull out the boxer’s mouthpiece.

    3. Squirt water in the boxer’s mouth.

    4. Lift spit-bucket up to boxer’s mouth to remove excess salivation.

    5. If boxer is cut, smear/pack crab salad in the injury.

    6. Wipe boxer’s face with towel.

    6. Remove stool from ring and place on floor.

    DING! DING!

    PS.
    I was also supposed to help assemble and disassemble the ring.

  16. Phelps says:

    Remove stool from ring… can’t the guy take a bathroom break? “Ref, I need to go BM!”

    I’ve assembled rings before. It’s work. (Back when I was hanging out with the backyard wrestling dudes.)

  17. Phelps says:

    And where is the part where Mexi cuts the guy?

  18. Citizen Quasar says:

    Woos. Setting up a ring is easy.

    There is a local venue at a Mexican joint called “El Dos Mil Dos.” Have Mexigogue contact the owner, Salvadore, for his cut.

  19. Phelps says:

    I didn’t say it was HARD work. Just that it was work. The one that we put up was done with 2x6s, and my brother got a splinter that was like 6 inches long in the palm of his hand. He says to this wrestler guy, “I don’t want to do it — will you pull this OUUUUUUUUUUUAAAAHHHH!” Cuz the guy grabbed his arm and started yanking on it before he even finished the question. It was almost surgical, too. And the guy was like, “hey, that feels better now, huh?”

    My brother was like, “You crazy fuck! It hurts like hell!” And it turned out that he didn’t even get it all. There was another inch or so really deep in. He popped it like a big zit, and there was a shot glass worth of pus that came out with it.

    I’m not sure what my point was, except that it is cool to hang out with pro wrestlers as long as they are hurting someone else.
