It’s All Fan And Games: Jeremy Conn Makes Awesome Reference To Mike Tyson’s Punch Out
By Ray Atkinson
I love when I hear video game references on The Fan. There was a great one on Scott and Jeremy Friday. This was around 3 p.m.
They were talking about Chad Johnson receiving an arrest warrant for violating probation. Johnson was arrested in August for allegedly headbutting his former wife Evelyn Lozada. Jeremy read a text, “Just goes to show, nobody wins in a headbutt.”
Scott, who used to be a ring announcer, replied, “Well in wrestling sometimes they do. Like Bobo Brazil, that was his thing like BOOM!” Hilarity ensued.
“Do a little dance with a rose in my mouth,” Jeremy thought of his wrestling gimmick, “kind of like Don Flamingo [sic] from Mike Tyson’s Punch Out.”
This is who Jeremy is referring to if you don’t remember or never played Punch Out. I can totally picture “Jerry Love” doing this:
He has got the gimmick, but I don’t know if Jeremy has Don Flamenco’s attributes. According to his profile, Flamenco is 6’1″ weighing in at 152 lbs. Flamenco is also more of a defensive minded fighter who baits his opponents into leaving an opening for an attack. Jeremy is more of a guy who will just come out swinging. Thing about Flamenco though, his punches are easily dodged leaving him open for an attack. Kind of the opposite of the original plan if you ask me.
Remember kids, it’s all fun and games until it hits The Fan, or in this case, until Don Flamenco hits the canvas.
