Happy Birthday Iron Mike Tyson

Iron Mike Tyson turns 45 today. At one time he was the most feared boxer on the planet, now he is making cameos in The Hangover and doing the reality show thing. A series of missteps in his life have made him one of the most fascinating and at the same time most tragic stories in sports history. A lot of it was his doing, some was the people around him giving him bad advice. In the end, I think his story is the best example of “what could have been” in sports.

Here is hoping Iron Mike enjoys the current stage of his career and that he can reinvent himself yet again.

Just so you never forget just how dominant he was, here is a compilation of his knockouts.
