  1. I was at a cook out at a family members house. Actually it was at their neighbor’s. I remember we were all inside that evening waiting for the Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield rematch to start. I think me and my cousin were playing some weird board game and listening to music before the fight came on. Most of the adults were in the back room watching the fight while most of the other kids were out in the living room with us along with a married couple that I have never met. All of us in the living room wanted Mike Tyson to win while most people in the back wanted Evander Holyfield to win. Everyone in the back room started chanting Holyfield to mess with us and we ” Tyson! ” and it went on back and forth for a few minutes. Then the fight came on. It did not go past the third round because this is the fight where Tyson bit off a piece of Holyfields ear. One of the best nights of my life. Except for the ear biting that wasn’t so great. This was two months before my fourteenth birthday.


Tell us a story.
