Looks like I'm going to have to wait awhile to see Michael Lohan get his ass kicked. Remember how Michael was all gung-ho about his charity boxing match? Well, a guy pledged $30,000 to get into the ring against Michael and I have no doubts he would have laid him out repeatedly. I was looking forward to watching it repeatedly on YouTube. I was going to make it the permanent top spot in the blog. This is something I was really looking forward to. Not as much maybe as Paula Abdul singing live on a morning show program which still has never seemed to happen, but I was counting down the days until Monday when the fight was going to happen.
I can't even blame Michael for it, although he did seem really pleased that it was not going to happen. Apparently since Michael is still on parole for a violent crime, the State of New York decided that he shouldn't be allowed to climb into a boxing ring and potentially put into another violent encounter. The only thing violent about it would have been when his head hit the floor of the ring, but, who am I to argue with a state government?
Lohan, for his part said he was really disappointed but understood why the decision was made. Yeah, I bet he was disappointed. He got what he wanted out of this whole thing. And, instead of setting up something for when his parole ends with the computer guy for some other charity he instead says now he wants to fight Mark Ronson. Whatever. The good news as you can see is that I found a close-up of his mesh shirt. Enjoy.
