Like The Beach Boys sang in 1964, I Get Around.
Old Naughty Polly The Parrot sang The Night They Tied Old Mike Tyson Down. A parody of 1971's The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down. I still assert that those naughty people tied old Mike down reprising Clint Eastwood's role in 1991's The Rookie scene as he was tied up with that Street Walker. Then Naughty Polly The Parrot pooping on the canvas to allow Tyson to slip as he was searching for his mouthpiece in round ten against Douglas in Tokyo, Japan. That hit man for the Japanese underworld Octavio Meyran, the designated referee assails Tyson by counting while he was yawning at such a one sided fight in favor of Buster Douglas, the hit was in, let's revive The Warren Commission, to conclude that Meyran was the sole assassin. Ha, Ha.
Naughty Polly The Party Parrot (En-Triple P) was actually a Russian sleeper who defected.
Real name: Natasha Fatale. Spy reference: 003 1/2 (Double Oh, three and a half).
She went rogue and offered her services to the highest bidder - in ‘90 that bidder was of course the Japanese Underworld who contracted Meyran - as you’ve already cleverly detected.
Some background profiling on Meyran. Prior to boxing, he was an official timekeeper in Athletics and specialised in the 100 metre sprint. He showed his usual disdain for stop watches and counted the seconds manually.
The amount of records being broken left right and centre with sub 10 sec times being achieved aroused suspicions and raised many an eyebrow - not least for the fact that Meyran only ever officiated at the Under 12 yo school children level.
During lead up to Tyson vs Douglas, the Naughty Parrot flew under the pseudonym Tokyo Polly
She even had her own pirate radio station via which she broadcast antagonistic announcements intended for psychological damage and secret messaging.
One such encoded message was: If you have a “yen”, then put it ALL on Big Buster Man..you be rich for looong time!
Do you remember the famous boxer/ref “Jack” Ruby Goldstein?
Though he passed some 6 years prior to Mike’s own pugilistic demise, I’m pretty sure he was involved in all of this also. He needs to be “worked” in.
Oops, my alarm just went off…time to take my meds.
That was a really cool truthful post. Give my best to Polly. You mean it is time to take your daily vitamins. Lol.
Haha, yeah vitamins, that’s what they are.
Tyson after training with King Kai and training in 100x Earth's gravity would have knocked Douglas out in Round 1.
Typical Tyson mythology bull hockey.
Mike raised pigeons as a youth.
Just because he could give some seed to a bunch of pea-brained pigeons and put them in little cages doesn’t mean he could train a parrot to sit on his shoulder.
Buster would have employed his double jab quicker than you can say ‘Polly want a cracker’ — one to knock the bird off Mike’s shoulder and the other to Tyson’s mouth.
Probably would have ended sooner, and there would have been no knockdown of Buster because Tyson would have been careful not to dip to set up the uppercut knowing the bird would have fallen off and flown away.
Naughty Polly want a cracker? A man past his prime at 23? The choices Tyson made came back to haunt him, getting rid of the trainer that brought him to the big dance because Robyn Givens and her looney gold digging mother Ruth Roper said to, it must have been made of gold, you know what I mean. You seen one like her, you seen them all. Not worth it, I am a practical man, money does not grow on trees. I was taught to respect people and money.
Cus should have taught Mike that money can be exchanged for goods and services.
True but it is too bad that Cus D Amato was gone by then. My grandmother used to say that what a woman possesses under her pants is the most powerful weapon in the world, it has created wars, gotten people killed, turned politicians into crooks. We were wised up at a young age, I do not think Mike was wised up, he missed a lot of lessons as a youth.
I don’t think Cus was Odin-level powerful.
I think what happens if Cus was around still happens. Mike’s a young man with fame and money. He’s not living in a little room in Cus’ place in the Catskills anymore. He’s still out at all hours buying gobs of jewelry and cars and carousing and such. All the temptations are there.
Just like most young people when they taste a little freedom (not to mention a lot of money and fame and people telling him how great he is and how he doesn’t have to listen to some little old man), Tyson rebels. He isn’t going to listen to Cus telling him not to marry when he’s caught the love bug.
Poor Mike she got her claws into him. Makes me glad I was wised up, walked away from gold diggers before.
I couldn't agree more. Cus spent half the day telling Tyson that after he won the title he would have fields full of Rolls Royces and countless naked women at his feet. He spent the other half of the day brainwashing Tyson to be whimpering under his complete control.
Eventually those things would have collided, and it would have been the ugliest divorce in history.
Watch Tyson talk about D'Amato today; he can't do it without breaking into tears and alternating between saying Cus made him feel like a POS and Cus saved him from death row.
D'Amato was brilliant and talented in many ways, but he made Patterson into a headcase and created a monster in Tyson.
Having Norm MacDonald on his shoulder in Tokyo may just have made all the difference.
If it wasn’t Givens and her mum it would’ve just been someone else standing in line to take advantage.
Even the parrot, and a female parrot at that, would’ve manipulated Tyson to achieve its own ends.
Parrots are very smart you know. Straight after the fight in Tokyo, without blinking an eye, Polly would’ve just flown from Mike’s shoulder to Buster’s (assuming Polly wasn’t crushed when Mike hit the deck).
Mike wasn’t scrambling for his mouth piece, he was looking for a cracker so Polly wouldn’t desert him “come back Polly….,!!” alas, it was too little, too late.
Some years later Polly was contracted by Derek Zoolander to carry out a hit on rival super model, the really, really, ridiculously good looking Fabio.
Chameleon Polly was cleverly disguised as a goose on this occasion and Fabio’s career took a nose dive thereafter. La Femme Fatale.
Norm MacDonald was sooooo funny.
