Because Child Support Doesn't Pay Itself....

...and because he can't keep it in his pants, Evander Holyfield still has to work. Considering the fact that he's embarrassed himself on Dancing With The Stars, and is still climbing in the ring twice a year, I guess his latest idea is less risky than, say, getting your brain further turned to creamed corn.

Evander Holyfield, of Atlanta, is preparing to unveil the "Evander Holyfield Real Deal Grill," a direct competitor to Foreman's famous "Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grilling Machine," which has reportedly earned $100 million in sales since 1995.

"I've got a George Foreman grill. It's a good grill," Holyfield, 44, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "But don't you think the latest grill is supposed to be the best grill?"

Manufacturer CirTran Corp., based in Utah, approached Holyfield about promoting the $99 grill after he appeared on the TV show "Dancing With the Stars" in 2005. Holyfield dons an apron in a 30-minute commercial that began airing last week describing his product's culinary and health benefits.
The sad stereotype of an athlete who just doesn't know when to call it quits (Michael Jordan, Rickey Henderson) doesn't necessarily apply here. With nine children (and counting) to "make it rain" on monthly, as well as a litany of bad business decisions, and shady ex-wives, Holyfield has to keep fighting, literally for his freedom. Sad, sad, sad.

I've said it before, and I'll keep saying it till somebody with the financial support helps me establish this as a legit business: Get Yourself Fixed!!!

Please, please, please, please buy this man's grill!!! Maybe you'll inadvertently save his life in the process.

Jack Johnson is crying inside.
