Still all very present tense here, but the words 'extremely critical' suggest Tyson's gonna be in for a large helping of TOAST with his breakfast in a day or two.

Sadly, she did. According to CNN, Tyson's daughter died earlier today.

It even made breaking news on CNN... (which i think says a lot about the dearth of celebrity deaths lately ... in fact, the lack of actual celebrity deaths this year).

It says more about how serious you have to take the news when it's "Breaking News" on CNN.

Unlike her boxer father, she obviously couldn't take a belt to the head. :)

That's tasteless even for this board.

Aye, but here's the dilemma....tasteless for sure but I laughed out loud when I read it.

Q: What's brown and sticky?

 

A: Tyson's treadmill.

Err... I got pulled for making a soft remark about the APTLY-NAMED "Exodus" (ie she exited the mortal coil).

 

I don't think what I posted was as bad....what do you think Carol Anne?

Sorry - was AWOL for a while.

 

My problem was with the "belt to the head."

 

As far as "brown and sticky" - that is disgusting. However, I know that one reason MPFC put that up was to get a reaction out of me so I have a conflict with buying a ticket to England to smack the brown and sticky out of him and not giving him the satisfaction of a reaction.

"Iron" Mike Tyson's appearance seems to have changed dramatically. Weight gain, the tragic death of his daughter, and a recent "Freak out" may hype up they who keep a constant eye on Hollywood's troubled personalities. Maybe it's just me but his life is the ideal example of one that would end in tragedy and it would hit the headlines hard.

"I'm on the verge of dying". I groan the same thing most Sunday mornings, Michael, but a few aspirin and a long lie-in usually does the trick.

 

Nah, we're in Gazza-land here. One to watch; because he's got massive guilt/baggage about terrible things he's done.

I'm surprised this thread has only had one post since 2013; shows what a relatively reformed character he's become.

 

Which seems to be borne out in a Bruno v Tyson documentary being broadcast on Friday, with the two of them supposedly on good form. 

 

I was wondering if Frank is the only living former DL candidate without his own thread? Not that I'm suggesting anyone starts one, please.

I doubt George Lineker has one but not searched.

I’m sure thread creator extraordinaire @The Old Crem can help if he isn’t too busy hitting the refresh button on #PrincePhilip on Twitter.

I try to forget about him, since I was part of the discussion that led to his appearance on the list. I may even have suggested him, but that's lost to time and memory. As for Red Rum, that sounds like one of mine. Sorry.

Red Rum of course is dog food/Tesco lasagne now so wasn't covered by your living former DL candidates.

Yes, I'm aware of that. It was an aside, a passing thought, I was set adrift on memory bliss.

 

Red Rum is actually under the winning post at Aintree, so they say. I met him at his Southport stables once.

I doubt Mike Ditka has one, same for David Jenkins

Rex Williams, from the 90 deathlist?

Ray Kennedy from 93 DL?

Edmund White, 94 DL?

Terry Waite has a thread, but shares it with John McCarthy

Interesting. I had to look up who David Jenkins is. Assuming he’s the athlete, maybe we added him because he was involved in steroids and criminal activity?

Not the former Bishop of Durham?
