In the end, though, the desires of the downtrodden can’t be completely fulfilled by reality show king Mark Burnett’s trifle of a revenge fantasy due to deeply discounted production values, overscripting to the point of preciousness, and an utter lack of reality.

Westbrook Punching People Again - Now For Profit

When you hear the name Michael Westbrook, you might think, “Hey, he’s a pretty good running back for the Philadelphia Eagles.” And you would be wrong, because that would be Brian Westbrook. No, Michael’s main claim to fame is that he’s the former Washington Redskin who beat up teammate Stephen Davis during practice.

Well, Mike figures if he’s gonna fly his fists into other people’s faces, he might as well get paid for it. So now it’s come to this - Michael Westbrook, cagefighter!
