Mike Tyson's Rant Writer Profiled (VIDEO)

If you watch sports (or are even slightly aware they exist), you know that athletes have a tendency to go on seemingly off the cuff (and insane) rants. It's like they get a bonus every time they tell an opponent that they'll eat their children. But what you probably didn't know is that all these glorious rants actually come from the brilliant mind of one writer, Charlie Hoard.

Played by Ty Burrell in this FoD sketch, Hoard details his career and how he comes up with his legendary "monologues," which have been performed by everyone from Mike Tyson to Brett Favre. Referring to Dennis Green's classic tirade: "'They are who we thought they were' actually came to me in a dream."
