Ceai Complet: Commenter Shout-Outs

Anytime you can make "Cornbread" Mayhugh laugh for 10 minutes and it's not a Ziggy cartoon, you've done something right. In that light, this one's for you sir - similar hairdos, similar masculinity:

Next week: Is Skip Bayless more Orko or Stinkor?

Mark said...

That separated at birth is better than Cavs coach Mike Brown and Grimace...

TJ said...

[Googling quickly]

Laughter.

Whitney said...

There was a W&M girl during my time that was nicknamed Grimace, and it unfortunately (for her) stuck for 4 years. And man, did she resemble that crazed purple beast.

Daily Dose of Sad Misogyny...

Favorite actual nicknames* for co-eds:

5. House Box
4. Wild Woman of Borneo
3. The Little Tomato
2. The Keg
1. Bus Face

*The "One-Eyed Sri Lankan Woman" was rendered ineligible for this list because it's more of an accurate descriptor than a nickname.

mayhugh said...

"Bus Face" - that is spectacular. That poor girl.

I'm guessing #4 was in reference to Deep Purple...

Mark said...

So who makes the first joke about Derrick Coleman needing a heart transplant?

Geoff said...

I think from our years my favorite was "I Can't Believe It's Not Butterface."

TJ said...

Second.

"Mt. Fuji" was pretty good too.

Whitney said...

I spotted Bus Face in a farmer's market in Wayne, PA last year. My wife said, "Isn't that . . . ?" and I jumped in, "Yep. Bus Face."

Honorable mention of our era goes to "The Antenna Woman," "The Librarian," "Brownstar," and G:TB fave "The Hammer."

rob said...

ahhh, the hammer. good times.

remember also the exceptionally cruel but sadly fitting 'regrigerator with butt zits'.

i'm sending my daughters to a convent.

MGL said...

I've gotta find out what this Deadspin/Costas deal is all about. But I can't until I wipe the tears from my eyes at the visage of "Bus Face." Permission to reuse?

Oh, and I interviewed Bizzinger once. He didn't seem arrogant; rather, that he was smarter than everyone else. And better looking.

TJ said...

I'm not sure how many of you have caught this, but the White Sox' Alexei Ramirez can't travel with the team to Toronto because he's Cuban and has all sorts of visa issues.

Apparently if he crosses the border with them he won't be able to come back. Stupid Cubans.

TJ said...

And this is a good idea why?

Former Indiana University coach Kelvin Sampson has agreed to become a Milwaukee Bucks assistant under Scott Skiles, sources told ESPN.com's Marc Stein and The Associated Press.

Mark said...

TJ...I commented on it at the Wheelhouse but you've got to read about this Marvin Harrison shooting...there's some crazy shit flying around.

TJ said...

The Wiz, so confusing - how can they play so damn well in Game 5 on the road and then let Wally Szc#?*_)'iak of all people kill them in Game 6?

TJ said...

For the love of god KG use your left hand just once.

TJ said...

Celts/Hawks...here we go again...

TJ said...

Al Horford should have at least been Co-Rookie of the Year with Durant.

TJ said...

I'm just putting it out there, but the 2008 Celtics sure look a lot like the 2007 Mavericks right now.

TJ said...

This game is fucking awesome.

TJ said...

Can Ray Allen cover anyone?

TJ said...

Joe. Johnson.

TJ said...

Um, who takes the last shot here - Sammy Horse Balls? KG? Ray?

TJ said...

Ah Ray...not so good pal.

TJ said...

There's no way Doc drew that up on his Etch-a-Sketch.

TJ said...

Miss one Bibby...

TJ said...

What an AWFUL final posession by the Celtics.

AWFUL.

The Drizzle said...

Da Hawks Rule ... much like Da Moon.

It's been rather hilarious to watch Phillips Arena "rocking" with all these "fans." My current prediction is for 5 straight sellouts to begin next season, followed by a return to 25% capacity when they invariably experience their first 3 game losing streak.

TJ said...

Welcome back Driz - you a big time lawyer yet?

TJ said...

And I have been to Phillips Arena actually...for a Georgia Force game. I thought the facility was extremely nice.

TJ said...

Can someone explain to me this new obsession to fuck up beer? I just walked by a huge display of Bud Light Lime - are you fucking kidding me? If you're dumb enough to put a lime in your own Bud Light, fine, but why in the world would you make an entire product line of this shit?

TJ said...

Why is Jose Mota in the penalty box?

The Drizzle said...

You're right, it is quite nice. Unbelievably enough, I've actually been for a Hawks game. I've been for a few concerts and such as well.

We're getting there, finish up the 2nd year this week. It hasn't stopped me from dropping by every few days to see what you guys have to say, but has obviously caused me to pretty much give up on the writing. Of course, what is there to write about?

The Falcons have ceased to exist. And trying to convince me that Ryan/Sam Baker is a better combo going forward than Dorsey/Henne-Brohm (and any of the 4 or 5 OTs that went after Baker) is not the best way to change that. I watch enough ACC football to know a standard Matt Ryan line for a big game is going to be 14/31, 210 yds, 2 TD, 3 INT.

The Braves are giving me the same shit they have for forever, a revolving door of injured crap in the bullpen and a week that normally involves three 5 run victories and four 1 run losses. I guess we'll see what the Smoltz move does, if his arm doesn't just fall off.

Watching Lawson, Ellington, and Hansbrough prove that they were no Felton, McCants, and May was fairly surreal. The first half of that Kansas game is both the longest and shortest 45 minutes I've ever sat through in my life, and frankly, I'm not comfortable with a world where Sasha Kaun makes any sort of a contribution to a national champion. On the other hand, getting to take in the Sundiata Gaines/Dave Bliss experience in person was fun.

My last great hope is that my 3L year of law school can coincide with something special for Georgia football this year. So there's pretty much a 0% chance of that happening.

And major Atlanta law firms are now laying off associates and some are delaying incoming associates start dates. I assume this to be my fault somehow.

But you know me, I can't complain.

TJ said...

Gary Matthews Jr. loves waffles.

And PEDs.

Mark said...

The Magic are down 15 in the 3rd quarter in Detroit. Yep, this is going about like I expected...

TJ said...

Win or lose today, I think it's safe to say the number of Joe Johnson #2 jerseys in rap videos will skyrocket.

TJ said...

Steve Phillips just referred to himself as "The Phil-diggity".

TJ said...

JVG, I do not think it is a good idea for the Hawks to be involved in any gang-related activities, even if it is just "gang-rebounding".

Mark said...

You're just mad b/c you wanted to start calling yourself Teej-diggity. I recommend T-Boogie in its stead.

TJ said...

So, this game is already over, eh?

Mark said...

Josh Smith is losing free agent $ by the minute...

Mark said...

Seems so TJ.

TJ said...

He's definitely stoned.

Mark said...

Whats the over/under on the number of times KG drops a 'motherfucker' in the average playoff game? 400?

Mark said...

Maybe he ISNT stoned TJ...have you thought about that?

The Drizzle said...

Josh Smith has progressed past embarrassing himself and is now embarrassing the entire state of Georgia and anyone who was born or ever lived within its borders. Wow.

Mark said...

I look forward to Matt Staffored doing the same on the last weekend of October.

TJ said...

Much like the Dinks in Spaceballs, it's the only word he uses.

TJ said...

You just blew my mind.

TJ said...

Well, at least I can turn over to the Blue Jays/White Sox game on WGN and scream profanity at Hawk Harrelson.

It's very therapeutic.

TJ said...

Ah, the Rangers attempt to stay alive on NBC...excellent alternative to this hoops debacle.

The Drizzle said...

Ryan Freel just applied a flying forearm to a Francoeur line drive, in lieu of trying to catch it. After the last 3 days, all this talk of him diving too much is really starting to gain some traction with me.

TJ said...

He tried to superman dat ho last night and did the exact same thing...it must be the crazy voices telling him to dive (kind of like Manu Ginobili...zing).

And on a totally unrelated note, how 'bout that weather?

Mark said...

Fucking beautiful indeed.

TJ said...

Nats/Pirates on MASN - get excited.

TJ said...

Oh Marvin Williams...

rob said...

that's a high-character flagrant foul.

TJ said...

Yep - classiest flagrant 2 I've seen in a long time.

TJ said...

The Hawks realize they have to finish this game right? It's not like our softball league with the 15 run slaughter rule.

TJ said...

If the refs aren't careful, ZuZu Petals is going to commit a Flagrant 6 pretty soon.

Mark said...

KG just tried to beat him to it...

TJ said...

DOC - WHY THE FUCK IS PAUL PIERCE STILL IN THE GAME?

TJ said...

Thank you.

rob said...

that was a pretty hockey goal by some talented hockey players.

TJ said...

Jerry doesn't want to hear that.

rob said...

no, because mr. crosby was prominently featured.

TJ said...

Well that's a pretty good start to the 3rd period for the Rangers.

TJ said...

Jerry is not going to be happy.

TJ said...

Way to make a first impression Fred:

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins second-round draft pick Fred Davis did not show up for minicamp practice Sunday, having overslept on just his third day in the NFL.

The team sent security officials to track down the tight end after he failed to arrive as scheduled from a local hotel, where the rookies were housed during the three-day minicamp.

"Everybody was scouring," coach Jim Zorn said after the practice. "Nobody heard from him, so there was one of two scenarios: either there was some real trouble and we needed to find him, or he screwed up. I haven't even got to talk to him yet. I know he has been found. I believe it is more in the 'I screwed up' category."

rob said...

chris cooley's blog is an underrated gem. from his draft q&a, in response to a question about the skins selecting a punter:

"I know really. A punter? Hopefully he can kick the shit out of the ball. I mean he did win the Ray Guy award."
