Witches' Brew: Mike Tyson Reps For The Pigeons

Mike Tyson Reps For The Pigeons

It’s not everyday that we can report Mike Tyson has a new job. Consider this one of those rare days...

Tyson is set to star in a new Animal Planet reality series about pigeon racing, tentatively called Taking on Tyson.  The former champ –who has raised pigeons since childhood– says "I feel a great pride acting as an official representative for all the pigeon fancier's out there.'' (now, re-read that with a lisp and then contain your laughter)

Tyson will co-executive produce the show, which will focus raising and racing pigeons, a largely unknown urban sport.

I'm happy to see him getting back on his feet. Taking on Tyson debuts in early 2011 on Animal Planet. So, will you watch?

Iron Mike does have mad love for his pigeons. I remember seeing a press conference for one of his fights once and a reporter stood up and asked him if pigeons were the niggers of the bird world. I was thinking that the crazy bastard would lunge across the room and take a bite outta his neck; and yet, the two of them ended up striking up a lively conversation.

I would watch, it's Mike Tyson teaching something that he loves. He's the Cus D'mato of pigeon training.
