Hugh Fink goes through all the ethnic sports team names. (2:27)

THAT WE'RE ACTUALLY NOW ROOTINGFOR MIKE TYSON

TO GET BACK IN THE RING.

WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN?

AND TYSON-- I WILL SAY THIS:HE'S GONE THROUGH A LOT

AND HE'S FINALLY SPEAKING OUTON ALL ISSUES BESIDES BOXING.

MIKE TYSONON THE SPECIAL OLYMPICS:

( high voice ):YOU KNOW, I THINK IT'S GREAT

THEY LET THESE, UH, HANDICAPPEDKIDS WHO WERE TAUNTED

IN WHEELCHAIRS, YOU KNOW,BOUNCE A BALL.

PUT THEM IN THE RING,I'LL FIGHT THEM.

( audience laughing )

MIKE TYSON ON MAYA ANGELO:

( high voice ):YEAH, MAYA ANGELO IS LIKE THISREALLY GREAT POET, YOU KNOW.

SHE'S CONTRIBUTED TO FEMINISMAND AFRICAN AMERICAN FREEDOM.

I'LL BASH HER FACEAND I'LL KILL HER.

I'D DECK HER.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS CONTROVERSYIS STILL GOING ON IN SPORTS

OF TEAMS THAT HAVE INDIAN NAMESBEING PROTESTED.

THAT'S CRAZY.

LIKE, UH, ST. JOHN, THE REDMEN

ARE NOW CALLEDTHE RED STORM, RIGHT?

Man:RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

THE COACH IS THERE.

YEAH, I THINK THAT'S CRAZY

BECAUSE LET'S FACE IT--

A LOT OF TEAMSHAVE ETHNIC NAMES.

NOTRE DAME, THE FIGHTING IRISH.

MINNESOTA, THE VIKINGS.

YESHIVA UNIVERSITY,THE PRICE-SLASHING HEBS.

WHAT THE BIG DEAL?

I THINK THE SADDEST THING RIGHTNOW IN PROFESSIONAL BASKETBALL

IS THE FACT THAT MAGIC JOHNSONDOESN'T DO PLAY-BY-PLAY ANYMORE.

YEAH, 'CAUSE HE WAS GREAT,AND DON'T GET ME WRONG--

HE'S MY FAVORITE PLAYEROF ALL TIME

BUT MAGIC HASTHAT REALLY BAD HABIT

OF SORT OF GETTING EXCITEDAND STATING THE OBVIOUS.

"SEVEN SECONDS LEFTON THE SHOT CLOCK

"WHICH MEANS,AS EACH SECOND TICKS AWAY

THERE'LL BE LESS TIME LEFTON THE CLOCK."

( laughter and scattered applause )

I THINK THE BEST ANNOUNCERIN ALL OF PROFESSIONAL SPORTS

IS CHICK HEARN,FOR THE LOS ANGELES LAKERS.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU KNOW THIS--HE'S AMAZING-- 79 YEARS OLD

AND NOT ONLY CAN CHICK HEARN

TELL YOU EXACTLYWHAT'S HAPPENING PLAY-BY-PLAY

BUT HE ALSO KNOWS OBSCURE FACTSABOUT ALL THE PLAYERS' LIVES.

"GLEN RICE BRINGS THE BALLDOWN COURT.

"RICE, A GERMAN LITERATURE MAJOROUT OF WEST VIRGINIA STATE

"BOUNCED PAST SHAQUILLE O'NEAL.

"O'NEAL, BORN C-SECTION

"AT THE NAVAL HOSPITAL,BETHESDA, MARYLAND--

"FAKES IT OVER TO KOBE BRYANT.

"BRYANT, WHOSE BROTHER TYREL,ACQUITTED OF SODOMY CHARGES

FEBRUARY 5, 1994--HE SHOOTS AND SCORES!"

( laughter and applause )
