Anyone watching the Tyson fight tonite?

Boxing is currently my favorite sport. But I just couldn't justify buying this fight. I even had a friend offer to go half, but I declined. I was never a big Tyson fan, his fights were fun to watch, but I think his greatness is way overstated.

Did you watch it? I heard the Joyce / Dubois fight was good, a big upset as well.

Just finished watching the History Channel episode with Eric that I had recorded. As is pretty typical of these kinds of shows, there was a lot of false suspense to carry you through commercial breaks followed by disappointing reveals and evidentiary let-downs. The only real thing of substance was the DNA, and that turned out to be a dead end. None of this is the fault of Eric. He came across as earnest and knowledgeable, and I am sympathetic to him as I am sure he was disappointed with the results of the investigation especially the DNA stuff.

I'll be watching the HBO doc next.

I watched the HBO doc with my 18 year old daughter yesterday. It held her interest more than the History channel doc did. I also found it to be more enjoyable. Nothing groundbreaking, but it was a good overview of the case especially if you weren't familiar with it or any of the suspects. It was fun pointing out to her the people that I knew from the forums.

Is the You Tube documentary that Shutter posted a link to earlier the same HBO documentary that some people are paying $15 to view?

I know it's cruel, but I'm enjoying seeing Georger sweat as he navigates through this blackened Mocha format.

I say let him squirm for another 24 hours, Shutter, then release him from his agony. (And mine....)

I don't know why Georger is complaining.  There are no small letters and everything is easy to read on my 27 inch monitor.

Christmas Grinches pressured Shutter to remove the Christmas theme

FJ, try not to be like Blevins and automatically assume the answer. if you read the thread Bruce was also having trouble with reading the format along with a couple PM's. I believe the post area was white before because I changed the color (background color) in the ini file which I don't remember how to do and don't understand at the moment how or why it switched back. I remember this happening the first time I use that theme a lot voiced out due to it being hard to read. the code needs to be changed so it has a white background where you post.

Some have requested the change already. it's just not seen as the default theme unless I take the time to figure out how to change the ini file again.

If anyone else would like the Christmas theme added to there profile just let me know..takes about a minute to add or remove.

FJ, are you saying you would like to see the theme?
