Patrick Ewing Is Still an Underachiever

September 10, 2008

Patrick Ewing is on the long list of people who Michael Jordan jacked rings from.  The Knicks never fully had that killer instinct with him on the squad and have been a debacle ever since.

Big Pat got enshrined into the Basketball Hall of Fame recently…uhhhhhhh…and apparently he thought it was a casual affair.

Come on Patrick, you didn’t know they were going to hit you with the commemorative blazer?  You knew Pat Riley was coming smooth, even coordinated the black shirt with it.  Dickie V hit em with the collegate look, and you rock the shorts, untucked shirt and Mandals?  You know how you know you are a complete asshole?  When you are so ridiculous that the professional photographer, your fellow inductees, and your former coach don’t tell you you got half a collar popped like you feel like dancin’ buuuuut just half way.  That is terrible.  Step yo game up.

Man Up Monday: Brad Daughetry

April 21, 2008

Now that the NBA Playoffs are on, I’m watching even more ESPN than normal. (Is that possible?) So all the networks have their A-Team rolled out for coverage. I’m watching Sportscenter and see this man on screen.

That’s right, Brad Daughterty. The Number 1 draft pick in 1986 to the Cleveland Cavs. Five time all-star. Career 19 and 9 guy. Solid, solid player. So I’m expecting some in depth analysis of the big men in the hunt for the championship, but nooooooo, all of a sudden we’re talking about the Road Track at Talladega or wherever the hell NASCAR was racing this weekend. NASCAR? Seven foot tall Brad Daugherty is the NASCAR correspondent?

How did this go down?

Hey Brad, you want to work for ESPN?

Yeah? Great. Ummmmmm, we need you to cover NASCAR.

I feel you Brad. That is why you should have manned on up and said. F That! I’m not doing it. So here’s what I want you to do. Head to Bristol, Connecticut. Go find whoever gave you this crazy ass assignment. raised your right hand up as high as you can (it should be right around 9 feet in the air) and slap the shit out of that dude Then report directly to the Cavs-Wizards game tonight at 7.

MAN UP!

Someone Need a Mascot?

April 17, 2008

Japanese TV is great. Honestly , I don’t know the common thread to whatever turns them on, but it is consistently great. Ninja Warrior, crazy ass game shows, tentacle porn, hey I can’t call it.

This right here is pretty hot though.

I don’t know what yokemeidashundelaschwieke means. But, I’m using that joint from now on. It takes him a long ass time to get ready, but he commits once he is ready to go.
