From the recap:

Former failed figure skater Tonya Harding combined minimal movement with perspicacious [?] punching to score a third-round TKO over past political pawn Paula Jones Wednesday in a bout that signaled either a promising beginning for Fox Television's fledgling People You Never Wanted to See Again Doing Things You Never Wanted to See Them Do division or the end of civilization as we know it. Possibly both.

What's kind of funny is the author says for them to "get a job" and the media has been calling them has-beens but if they checked their facts some they would see Bonaduce (of all people) has a top-rated LA morning radio show as well as a syndicated tv show. Not exactly king of all media, but certainly moreso than his fellow combatants.

Apparently wearing advertising body art is the key to victory. I hope you arenít questioning the legitimacy of the noble sport that is Celebrity Boxing. Personally, I liked it just because it was untrained people fighting each other on TV. It was Jerry Springer without the pretense of being a talk show.

I enjoyed the part where Vanilla Ice got punched in the face repeatedly. Several years too late, but better late than never.

I can't imagine wanting to do this. It's like volunteering to be ridiculed. And then Vanilla Ice acts put upon because he couldn't use his real name! Listen, man, you're in a celebrity boxing match! Going by your given name is not going to salvage any dignity; there's just nothing left to salvage.

I hope you arenít questioning the legitimacy of the noble sport that is Celebrity Boxing. Absolutely not! Just the other day we were talking about how the temporary tattoos are a constitutional right, and the Salon article says "Bonaduce, Bridges and Harding, wore body-art advertising for a Web site." They all won, right? So clearly the temp tattoos are responsible.
