2. Being 10 or so, and my Dad and I turning on HBO to watch Mike Tyson maul some new hapless sap, except the hapless sap hangs in there, and starts landing some punches here and there, and now Tyson's down, what's happening ... holy crap, did he lose?

4. NEW FOR 2009: Tommy Tuberville, as it turns out.
Tuberville will talk about Southeastern Conference football on BusterSports.com next season. The Web site said Thursday he will contribute on multiple shows each week, including Internet podcasts.Give Tuberville this: apparently he won't be alone amongst the ungracefully-departed at BusterSports, what with them having also signed on Jim Donnan, Dave Odom, and ... wait for it ... Terry Donahue. So he won't quite fit right in--Tubby was miles better than any of those guys ever dreamed of being--but at least he's not slumming it with, say, Curley Hallman.
Tuberville said Buster Sports, based in Raleigh, will allow him to interact with SEC fans. They will be able to talk with him through chat rooms, message boards and call-in questions.
Still, I can't shake the nagging feeling I should have made him an offer. I mean, come on: "Buster Sports." Whatever you think of the name "The Joe Cribbs Car Wash," you've got to admit it's got more dignity in it than that. (At least, I'm pretty sure it does.)
