Mike Tyson to Race Pigeons on TV

Did you enjoy seeing Mike Tyson pal around with The Hangover guys at the Golden Globes as if he was an actual member of the cast? Us too! Good news, then: The champ will be getting more televised exposure via Take on Tyson, an Animal Planet reality program in which he’ll race pigeons. While Tyson has never raced the birds before, he’s owned pigeons since he was a kid, and now has a few hundred in his possession. (There’s no premiere date, but the show starts shooting in Brooklyn next month.) This is the most excited we’ve been for pigeon-centric television since the fourth season of The Wire. [NYP]
