              >Mike Tyson would be Ben Johnson

              I realize that this is all in fun but, despite Johnson's pariah status, that is actually an offensive comparison. Tyson is a psychopathic criminal that has spent some time in the big house. Various assaults and rape. Maybe there is a sprinter that can be compared to him but it certainly isn't Ben Johnson. Tyson bit a body part off another boxer for crying out loud.

                          how about anthony hembrick and miruts yifter, hembrick did not show up for his fight at the olympics, because he missed the bus and yifter in the 1972 olympics, missed his race because he was in the bathroom when it started.
