pens. For a news guy like me, it’s awesome. But the Internet can be a dangerous weapon that can spread misinformation like the plague. In the case of Slice, it created something out of nothing. One look at the guy and it’s easy to see why a company would rush to sign him. Slice looks as intimidating as any man I’ve seen. At 6-foot-2 and 235 pounds, with a mangy beard and a clean shaved head, the guy looks scary. It turns out he couldn’t take a punch. Even Petruzelli said he didn’t think he really connected with the punch that sent Slice to the floor. A fighter with a glass jaw and no skill has no chance against a trained scrapper. Look what happened to Mike Tyson. As soon as people started fighting him, Iron Mike lost, and lost a lot. But don’t blame Kimbo Slice. This is about the marketing machine and overzealous greed monsters that thought they found their meal ticket. We get so wrapped up on opinions and so-called expert analysis that it can be dang near impossible to sift through all the bull. After all, it’s America. What did everyone expect? We live in a society where we don’t face our problems and accuse McDonalds for serving coffee that is too hot. The way I see it, if you swim in hypocrisy, you better deal with the hand your dealt. Give Kimbo Slice a break. At least he isn’t making excuses. He did what any person in his situation would do. In the end, he was along for the ride with the rest of us. Why should there be any accountability now? If we had that, we might actually live in a world void of nonsense and golden parachutes and the gap between the haves way too much and haves not a pot to pee in would shrink. America as we know it would crumble. Honest people would roam the country and politicians would do the things they promise when they run for office. We couldn’t have that. We’d actually have a country to pass along to our kids. What fun would that be?
