Mike Tyson Sure Loves His Pigeons


Mike Tyson is one of the most puzzling characters of our time. On one hand, he is the brutal boxer with a face tattoo who not only took a bite out of a man’s ear but went to jail for raping a beauty pageant queen. On the other hand, there’s something that makes me sympathetic toward him—the childlike lisp, the air of sadness, the death of his 4-year-old daughter in 2009.

“True Blood” Season 4 Is Still A Long Ways Away

These are my favorite shows on television, but each of their new seasons is a ways away, leaving me with episodes of “The Bachelor” that just don’t quite scratch the itch. Sigh. Well, on Saturday, there was a tribute to “True Blood” at the Paley Center in Los Angeles that brought together creator Alan Ball and 16 of the show’s cast members. Entertainment Weekly was on hand and eked out some spoilers of what we should expect in season four, come June. Check them out after the jump.
