    The documentary?

    I thought it was really good. Tyson is surprisingly insightful about himself.

    If Cus Damato had lived another 20 years, Mike would have had a very different life.

    He probably wouldn't have fallen into Don King's bullshit empire and been fed a bunch of subpar opponents that left him ill-prepared for the guys who beat him later on.

    Yeah man. He was the only guy who ever looked out for Mike or seemed to actually care about him.

    I often agree with you (about Tyson). I hated him back in the day. I'm starting to view him now as a poor dumb kid who started out with an amazing mentor who turned his life around, but who eventually fell to the wolves.
