Ebirt Og

Since G:TB just broke through into the mainstream with a mention in one of the nation’s most prestigious collegiate alumni magazines, we felt it appropriate to step up our game...to new heights of ridiculousness. Hark upon the gale, friends.

rob apparently can't view the Tubes of You at work, and asked me to describe this. This is the best I could come up with:

um...it appears to be a chuck e cheese animatronic bear band performing usher's latest jam "love in the club"

TJ said...

And he also just made me change the lead-in text...what a fascist.

Dave said...

i can't view "youtube" at work either, and i need a bit more description. who is usher? i also want to point out that my sentence of dave is brilliant today-- i fully expect my new term to become part of the american vernacular.

"Tupperawareness"

Nice work Dave. Rich Hall has nothing on you.

"You know how I be," Shaq rapped. "Last week Kobe couldn't do without me."

1 - Have you listened to this "rap"? Shaq Diesel it ain't.

2 - Shaq, hate to tell you this, but you wouldn't have a title sans Kobe if it weren't for Dwayne wade. Settle down big fella.

3 - Shaq, you might also want to thank Dirk and the Mavs for choking away that series.

Dave said...

when i was young, i wanted to be just like rich hall. i figured: there's a guy who gets all the hot chicks-- clever, funny, and really good looking to boot.

Greg said...

Also, Shaq's "rap" certainly makes him look a little too obsessed with Kobe.

Oh, and Shaq, how did your team do this year? Right.

Mark said...

Shaq is obsessed with Kobe in the manner that junior high girls are obsessed with their rival who stole their boyfriend. He might as well make a MySpace slam page of him.

Shaq may want to throw a "shout out" to Bennett Salvatore in that "rap" as well. He's as responsible for Shaq's non-Kobe championship as Wade and far more than Shaq.

You just know Saban waited as long as possible to dismiss him:

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama linebacker Jimmy Johns was arrested on felony drug charges Tuesday and kicked off the team, the latest in a string of off-the-field problems for coach Nick Saban's squad.

Johns, who moved to defense for his senior year after playing running back and receiver in 2007, was "pretty wide open" selling cocaine to students on and around the University of Alabama campus but tried to hide what he was doing from teammates, police said.

Barry Melrose is the new coach of the Tampa Bay Lightning. That's good, I like Barry...but how the hell did he get away with hiring Rick Tocchet as an assistant coach? Wasn't Tocchet one of the major players in that huge gambling sting a few years ago?

rob said...

only if by 'major player' you mean 'ringleader'.

TJ said...

In other news, Pete Rose is now an assistant with the Islanders.

Rhymenocerous said...

For the record, the Bill Simmons-Chad Ford draft article is absolutely unreadable.

Two guys who don't watch any college basketball cyber-yelling at each other about decisions that can't be fully evaluated for 3-5 years. Ugh.

TJ said...

Chad Ford trying to be funny is indeed painful to read.

rob said...

wonder how much was wagered on davydenko's match today. i'm just saying.

TJ said...

Did he tank it again?

TJ said...

Chad Ford trying to hang tough with SportGuy:

Bill, Lou Dobbs called, and he wants his xenophobic international diatribes back.

TJ said...

OK, this made me laugh A LOT:

PHOENIX -- Shaquille O'Neal will lose his special deputy's badge in Maricopa County because of language he used in a rap video that mocks former teammate Kobe Bryant.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said the Phoenix Suns center's use of a racially derogatory word and other foul language left him no choice. Arpaio made Shaq a special deputy in January and promoted him to colonel of his largely ceremonial posse earlier this month.

Mark said...

Meanwhile, there are approximately 300 meth labs operating in the wilds of Maricopa County and this idiot of a police chief is busy handing out and rescinding ceremonial deputy's badges.

No wonder the Hell's Angels relocated their American headquarters to Arizona a few years back.

it's a pingstorm in omaha.
