Wednesday's Whips Vol. VI

As the Summer of 2010 winds down, it's time we look back. Superteams were formed, superstars were made, legends walked away and icons passed on. A King abdicated his Clevelandic throne and took his "talents to South Beach." A pair of Old Mariners, Sweet Lou and Junior Griffey both ended their hall of fame careers mid-season. Brett Favre retired, returned, retired, returned, retired, and then almost took his talents to south beach before returning yet again. Brock Lesnar returned from near-death to retain his dominance over the UFC heavyweight division by outlasting Shane Carwin. The Los Angeles sun is now setting on "Mannywood" as that bad bum b-movie comes to it's inevitable end.

Just wondering?

How much money would a Mike Tyson-Kimbo Slice fight in the UFC make on pay-per-view? Yes, I know, it would be a garbage bout between a former legend and an overhyped street brawler, the ol' has-been vs. never-will-be scenario. But selling PPV buys is all about selling hype and drama. And this fight would have more hype than a Strasburg start in D.C.
