Friday Fun: Uli Hoeness, the Fighter

In last week’s in-match post comments, reader A Kap asked about my match-opening tweet of “Let’s get it on!” A catch phrase of boxing referee Mills Lane, I had totally forgotten about how the phrase got popularized outside the world of “real” boxing: through the MTV show Celebrity Deathmatch, as A Kap sharply remembered.

So in tribute to being reminded of that show, and in honor of Uli’s latest rant against 1860, I give you: Uli Hoeness, the fighter!

One part of the dialogue worth translating:

A few of Uli’s teeth are knocked out and hit the canvas

Announcer: “Hoeness has lost more teeth than the number of balls Rensing has held on to.”
