How did Nipsey Hussle generate such a fantastic stage name and such disproportionately terrible lyrics?

Marls said...

Let's clear a path for Coach McGrath.

Its pretty remarkable how much gayer men's figure skating has become since the last Olympics. Johnny Weir walked in wearing a women's ankle length North Face jacket and holding a black purse last night. I don't really have a quibble with it, just was a little surprised. These guys make Brian Boitano look like Chuck Connors.

TR said...

Even my wife commented on the gayness of the skaters. It's like they watched Blades of Glory and tried to one-up it. NBC had a brutal segment on Monday where they asked athletes who their Olympic crushes were. They asked Weir and he said his crush was the wookie mascot for the games. Maybe he's into hairy dudes.

Geoff said...

I think we're a couple years away from one gender neutral skating competition...with the pairs competition being a real free for all.

Brian said...

He's a furry.

Dennis said...

Um, someone tell that guy to shut his trap.

TR said...

For those of you shopping for birthday gifts for El Teej:

Fantastic.

I saw a girl wearing a t-shirt that said, "I lost my virginity, but I still have the box it came in."

Keep the volume way way down if you watch this cautionary tale at work:

Revolver over Rubber Soul? Interesting. Perhaps they were electing a pope whilst they compiled this list.

TJ said...

Nate Robinson to the Celts? Um, why?

TJ said...

Vonn Wilder...that over hyped chick skier won, or something.

rob said...

how 'bout a spoiler alert, jerkface?

TJ said...

How 'bout stop caring about these shitty Winter Games?

And so sorry I read espn.com, that hidden web gem that none of us ever happen to stop by...

TJ said...

I mentioned this to Work Jerry today, but when does Mark McGwire resign as Cards hitting coach? Before spring training ends? End of April?

No way he makes it through a full season avoiding reporters' questions at every turn.

rob said...

there are people who might be intentionally avoiding the results, a la jerry and his premiership games yesterday. you selfish prick.

TJ said...

Get a grip whiny...it's the lead fucking story and photo on the most visited sports website on the planet. Go live in a fucking cave if you care so dearly about your Olympic results. And tell NBC to fucking televise the events that matter in primetime. it's not like Vancouver is in some crazy ass time zone we can't handle.

Mark said...

Ace & Gary...take it easy.

TJ said...

Cheech, shut the fuck up.

rob said...

grumpy teejay's way too easy to fire up

zoltan said...

This is all Fios' fault.

rob said...

and are you suggesting they start the ski runs at 5:00 at night? 'cause that's the only way to televise that event live in primetime.

Mark said...

You won't like The Teej when he's angry...

Shlara said...

TR, you stay classy.

And, I'm SOOO going to miss Antawn, but I'm glad he's going to a contender. Go Cavs.

rob said...

i feel like i hardly even know the wizards any more

TJ said...

Rob, I was going to tell you the Wiz made a trade, but I didn't want to ruin it for you...

TJ said...

Nice attendance at the Wiz game...

Mark said...

My lady is receiving an award from the Sheriff's office at their annual awards banquet tonight. Sooooo, I've been sitting in a room full of nothing but cops for the past two hours, clapping and standing to clap every 2-3 minutes. At some point, I really hope all this time spent hanging out with cops pays off because not only is this terribly fucking boring but, shockingly, I'm not a big fan of hanging out in a huge room full if cops. Papa needs a drink.

zoltan said...

To keep the wheels from rubbin.

TJ said...

I have two movie scenes immeditaely in mind...name them.

Geoff said...

The Fred the Dwarf Dorfman scene from Fletch?

zoltan said...

Rounders.

TJ said...

Geoff plus 1...1 more out there...

Zoltan, no soup for you.

rob said...

wow, chris kramer

rob said...

why are speedskaters wearing sunglasses indoors?

TJ said...

"A silky, graceful elegance"?

TJ said...

OK. Wow. That guy is the fucking shit.

TJ said...

Hey Slovenia, nice Bronze. Say hi to Estonia and Croatia for me.

Shlara said...

As you're watching speed skating tonight, look for the Fort Dupont Kids on Ice students--NBC has a camera at the rink to capture them cheering on Shani Davis. I've been working with this program since its inception. It's 100% awesome.

Now, back to the regular snark.

rob said...

notre dame/louisville into overtime

TJ said...

Let's make that a double tiny...

rob said...

how's notre dame doing this without gody?

rob said...

nbc's now just showing ski wrecks to spite people who said they'd only show americans.

rob said...

'cause when i think winter olympics, i think rascal flatts.

TJ said...

This hoops game is absurd...

TR said...

Back to Mark and the piggies - evokes memories of Fear and Loathing. I hope he's on acid. And with his Latino lawyer.

rob said...

shoot the three, mike brey. for the love of god.

rob said...

or do that. guh.

TJ said...

That was one of the worst end of game possessions I've ever seen in my life.

Whitney said...

I'm thinking the scene from Reservoir Dogs when Tim Roth walks into the men's room with drugs on him and the cops and the barking dog are there?

Mark said...

Louie Vito...ayyy! Get outta Louie's way, he's about to snowboard the fuck outta that snow!!

Mark said...

A dreadlocked Japanese guy? Well...that's a first for me.

Whitney said...

Vegas post up... big letdown but that's how it goes. Fittingly, the post will be up all night.
