Analysis: Was Being Punched By Mike Tyson On A Plane Actually A Smart Life Decision?

Stop and think of those holiday weekends when you've been drinking a few and someone in the text group wants to play a game of, 'How much to let Mike Tyson punch your brains out on an airplane?'

We've all been there thinking about a dollar figure to allow that man's fist to meet up with our own skulls. There's always the "1 million dollars, no less" guy who actually means he'd take $250k cash so he could pay off the boat and the lake trailer.

This week a moron decided to play the game, but he was willing to do it as unpaid labor. On a flight from San Francisco to Florida, a passenger decided to taunt Mike Tyson to the point where the former heavyweight champ had enough and pummeled the guy.

Now, I need you to take out the fact that the guy is a complete douche for harassing Tyson to the point where he needed a beatdown. Forget that part. That's a separate discussion.

I'm here to argue that surviving a Mike Tyson two-piece -- it looks more like a four-piece -- is actually great for this guy's social life.

This isn't like one of those First Take shows where I'm arguing just to argue. Let's think about this for a minute.

I get the initial reaction to such a moment in pop culture history is not admirable, and it's not, but I think this story is going to age gracefully for Chad (or whatever his name is), and text groups around the world will continue to debate 'How much to let Mike Tyson punch your brains out on an airplane?'

*Disclaimer: It's highly not recommended to taunt Mike Tyson into pummeling your brain. Do so at your own risk. I share absolutely no blame if he breaks your skull.
