2 EAST VILLAGE BEE YOU TEEZ! ZOE HANSEN & ANN HANAVAN
For people who don’t understand my relationship with this man, the "INTERNET SENSATION" JIM TIESO, let me explain.
Jim and I love to one up each other with torturous pictures making fun of each other.We have become very good friends.Our private messages, belie our true friendship. Out public posts are for “ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY”. It is a relief from the daily stresses of life. Nothing more, nothing less,
If you get it, and think it’s funny, good. Enjoy the laughter. If you don’t, well, then don’t.
Jim was supposed to come to NYC this weekend for a UFC fight, and a coupla’ tree dinners. Sadly, his dad passed away at 92 years of age.
Jim’s dad won a Purple Heart from duty served in WWII. He was at Iwo Jima. He was as tough an old school Italian man as there was.
I am taking this moment to thank Jim’s father for his service, and for helping spawn a wonderful son, who is as generous, gracious,selfless, and loving as a good friend could be.
The MANITOBA FAMILY loves the TIESO FAMILY .
We wish you all strength and love at this time….
..and I am putting on a straightjacket for a week or so, so I can’t post anymore photos making fun of Jim…
Some people stay in shape all year ‘round. Some get into shape for their “fights”
It is said, in boxing parlance, that Roberto Duran, (TOP)”walked around @ 90, or 200.” He came into the ring @ 60, Middleweight, in the latter part of his career.
HDM:(BOTTOM) I have 2 weeks to go until “MY FIGHT”, a DICTATORS NYC gig at BOWERY ELECTRIC, THURSDAY, JANUARY 23.
I walked up 44 flights yesterday, whipping myself into shape
Today I go for 53.
I stayed a quarter mile down the road from THE CONCORD HOTEL, on KIAMESHA LAKE,at a bungalow colony called, “RYKE-INN”..Them Jews are so creative…Owner was SOL RYKEIN(or SOMETHING LIKE THAT)
Needless to say, me and my sister, in OUR ULTIMATE COOLNESS came up with the name, “KIKE-INN”
Sol was a nasty unfriendly guy, a bah humbug, nasty to children kind of guy…That is until it was time to sign up for the following summer. Then he would stop off to everybody’s bungalow with a bottle of scotch, proceed to get you drunk, laugh, connect, be jolly, and get you to sign on the bottom line to take a bungalow for the next summer.
We had one of THEE great JEWISH characters in the HISTORY of JEWISH characters, and Mr. Friedman, I know that’s saying a lot…He was,
“RUBY THE KNISH MAN”..The announcement would come over what is now, an antiquated PA system…There would be “3 Breaths, blows”, into the microphone, to make sure the mike was on and reaching all the renters,The announcement was then made…”RUBY THE KNISHMAN IS NOW ON THE PREMISES, RUBY THE KNISHMAN IS NOW ON THE PREMISES”..All the kids would come running. A Brooklyn, Borscht Belt LEGEND…..

But perhaps nobody was as livid about the outcome as UFC president Dana White, who took the Nevada State Athletic Commission to task for the judges’ 48-47, 47-48, 48-47 decision in favor of GSP.
Here’s what White said in an interview during the UFC 167 post-fight coverage on FOX:
“I gave Georges St-Pierre the third round, that’s it. … Nevada is a very scary place. This is the worst commission on the planet. I am afraid to bring fights to Las Vegas. I never thought I’d say that. This is the city I live in; this is the city I love. This is the worst commission on the planet.”
“This is the thing that makes people not like fights. I don’t even know what to say. I’m still so blown away by it. Georges knew he lost, his corner knew he lost. Hendricks knew he won, his corner knew he won. … These guys, this commission is just despicably horrible.”
White even cautioned against the NSAC ruining MMA in the same way many believe it has boxing:
“The Nevada State Athletic Commission has a lot of work to do – a lot of work to do. And it makes me sick. They better get to work, and they better figure out how to not destroy, not only the sport of boxing, but this sport, too.”
In case it wasn’t clear, Saturday night is one White would rather forget.
