Ceai Complet: June 5, 2008

1987 is getting a lot of love this week, and it just so happens we here at G:TB have unearthed a classic 1987 Converse ad. Enjoy.

Not sure a sneaker called the "Weapon" would be such a great idea with today's NBA players.

And filming that same ad in 2008, preserving the choreography with people putting their shoes on other guys' heads and gently pushing people's faces . . . you've got an advertising studio brawl/shooting of epic proportions.

Ah, I miss the golden era of a gentler NBA. You know, with Ralph Sampson slugging a guy a foot and a half shorter in the face, Micheal Ray Richardson ingesting more drugs than a pack of mules, and Jeff Ruland actually having a job.

jeff ruland is the current coach of the albuquerque thunderbirds, his agent will have you know.

TJ said...

Wow.

Greg said...

I like those Weapons. I think I'll get a pair in every color.

Whitney said...

Greg, go here and you can pretty much get what you're looking for...

Geoff said...

If every post is going to be a ceai complet, I think you should probably just make that the name of your blog.

Whitney said...

Thanks for the advice.

Seems you are having trouble with the concept of the recurring Ceai Complet segment. This may help:

According to the Romania Travel Guide, Ceai Complet is "a light breakfast meal of rolls and butter, to which a salty cheese or long, unappealing-looking skinless sausages can be added."

I'd say Jerry and his Jersey contrarianism is definitely the salty cheese. Sorry about what that leaves you as.

Is the phrase "long, unappealing-looking skinless sausages" a reference to G:TP?


wait for it...

rob said...

i'm not waiting for that, freak-o.

TJ said...

I can't wait until we hit #1 on google for that search:
"long, unappealing-looking skinless sausages"

Rhymenocerous said...

Whit was the one who first typed the phrase "long, unappealing-looking skinless sausages," so he's the sicko.

rob said...

great news from out here in the sticks. power's back on after almost exactly 24 hours, and the 6-pack of dale's pale ale in fridge remained cold.

Whitney said...

So fucking drink it already and stop building a shrine to it, you short, unappealing-looking skinless sausage.

Sorry. I need a beer.

rob said...

somebody's got a case of the mondays.

Whitney said...

Some dudes are coming over for beers, poker, darts, foosball, and beers tonight in my garage. You folks are all welcome to join us.

I'd encourage the OBX girls to make it up to Norfolk, but it's going to be a long, unappealing-looking skinless sausagefest.

Ugh. That's probably about enough of that phrase's usage here, no?

Zoltan said...

Elaine Benes had a whole schtick about how she disliked sausage with the skin on it. I think it was the briss episode.

I would like a revisted mustache post from the sleepy Rhymenocerous. Giambi's stache is rude.

will leitch is stepping down as editor at deadspin. i've replaced their regular coffee with teejay's resume. let's see what happens.

rob said...

and after those motherfuckers stole our youtube idea, giving teejay the job is the least they can do to repay us.

rob said...

pretty good baseball fight pictures over at misery loves company, for the bloodthirsty amongst you.

1b michael sheridan from w&m just went to the rays in the 5th round of the mlb draft. great story - made himself into a good player by working his ass off. shame i have to hate him now.

rob said...

sox just took hs of peter hissey from unionville, pa. pretty good fit.

Rhymenocerous said...

Live-blogging the major league draft is really a cry for help.

You fighting with the missus and sequestering yourself in the computer room, Rob?

rob said...

now that's funny
