Listen: Dennis Rodman’s Aural Pleasure
Several years ago ESPN journalist Bill Simmons coined the term “the Tyson Zone,” named after Mike Tyson. To make it into the Tyson Zone you had to be known for such ridiculous levels of bizarre behavior that no matter how seemingly unbelievable a story is, when applied to a member of the Tyson Zone, it’s then believable.
For example, if during Tyson’s peak of getting arrested/giving crazy interviews/biting opponents’ ears off, you heard that he ran through a Las Vegas casino with two loaded handguns while wearing nothing but a rainbow afro wig, your reaction wouldn’t be “no way,” it would be “yep, that’s Mike.”
This week Dennis Rodman (pictured above in more innocent times) lived up to his billing as a first-ballot Hall of Famer in the Tyson Zone. While being interviewed over the phone on the “Jorge Sedano Show” (790 the Ticket in Miami), Dennis introduces the interviewer to a female friend named Teresa. It’s difficult to explain exactly what happens next, but after a few minutes of giggling, mumbling and deep breathing, here’s a quick quote that pretty much sums the interview up.
Interviewer: Dennis, are you getting it on in the car right now or what?
Dennis Rodman: I won’t lie dog, bedroom.
Interviewer: Oh you’re in the bedroom, are you getting it on right now?
Dennis Rodman: No, she’s just sucking something [laughs].
