I’ve decided to spin off a new sports-oriented blog, FourPointers. Go ahead, subscribe.
Actually, I’m not exaggerating. It’s a bit unconventional to make a blog post about a thread on a sports forum (I think), but this one is truly something special. It started with a series of captioned pictures, often featuring Antoine “Because there ain’t no fours” Walker, and it has now turned into a monster. As of the time this post was written, it was at 54 pages of gut-busting humor. Someone find this guy an agent, because his stuff is far more entertaining than 95% of what I see on TV these days. Read it all for yourself.
So the Danny Ainge trades away his entire franchise, and gets himself the Big Ticket. Now the Celtics have Garnett, Pierce and Allen. And frankly, not much else: A sophomore point guard who can’t can’t shoot worth a lick (got his tail kicked in a shooting drill by an eighth grader in practice). Who’s that guy that’s supposed to be their starting center again? That’s right, you’ve probably never even heard of him. (If you guessed Kandi-man, you guessed wrong.) Someone explain to me why this three-man team is supposed to be an instant favorite out of the East again? I ain’t buying the JV league argument, even though the East is incredibly weak.
By the way, the aforementioned eighth grader is the son of Doc Rivers, who seems like a genuinely nice guy who just gets utterly outmatched and out-coached every night, as far as NBA contests are concerned. But fear not, for the Celtics have a savior for their non-existent bench: Reggie Miller, armed with loads of Geritol!
SR610 is a local sports talk radio station in Houston. From time to time they do these “on a mobile” impersonations, with Rockets coach Jeff Van Gundy being a favorite target. Recently second round rookie Vassilis Spanoulis has been complaining to the media about his lack of playing time. And this morning, John & Lance pounced on the opportunity.
Click here to listen to the interview. Absolutely hilarious.
Texas high school football game in 1994, Tyler vs Plano East. Tyler is up 41-17 with 3 minutes to go. Watch what happens.
The announcers are hilarious. My favorite quote: “I done wet mah britches!”
Patrick Hruby examines the legacy left behind by Andre Agassi in the world of tennis fashion:
The look: Lace headband, frilly, floppy-armed top, knee-high bow-tied socks.
Inspired by: Too much free time; scissors.
Resembles: A nightgown caught in a paper shredder.
Sartorial statement: Toga! Toga!
For best results: When accepting Halloween candy, hold bag firmly.
Possible complications: Stadium security mistakes you for a male figure skater.
A day that will forever live in infamy in Houston sports history. The Houston Texans may have committed one of the biggest draft blunders in the history of professional sports by passing up on both Reggie Bush and Vince Young to sign Mario Williams. This better work out, or else Bob McNair, not Bud Adams could end up being the greatest traitor ever in H-town.
The Houston MLS Franchise name has been leaked, and they will be called the Houston 1836 (or the 36ers, I think). Pretty cool, I think. Looking forward to being a fan.
By the way I’m a Reggie Bush supporter. Just in case you were wondering. Kubiak + Carr (who really is a star quarterback waiting to happen, IMNSHO) + Bush + Davis + Johnson + Mathis = defensive nightmare. Yes sir.
