I owe rob a Tribe hoops post


Our fighting hoopsters take on Howard this evening.  Pasted above is a screengrab of this matchup.  Yeah, sooooo...there are only 347 teams in Division 1 hoops.  We appear to rank 342nd in scoring at 52.2 ppg.  That, my dear friends, is a steaming pile of poo.  But guess what, as you start to ask "Who's possibly worse than us?"...BAM, I give you that list:

347. Binghamton (47.7)
346. St. Peter's (50.3)
345. Howard (51.3)
344. Arkansas-Pine Bluff (51.8)
343. Centenary (51.9)

Oh wait, double-take, who do I see on that list at #345?  Ah yes, tonight's opponent, the Howard Bison (not to be confused with my awesome high school alma mater the Shaker Blue Bison).

So I guess what I'm saying is get ready to enjoy a 47-45 barnburner folks (with the good guys triumphing of course).  Tribe Pride, it's contagious (and a tad itchy).

NFL, rodentia, tribe hoops . . . something for everyone.

rob said...

and to amplify the teej's sentiment, the wrens really need to find someone other than marcus kitts and quinn mcdowell who can score the basketball. the two of them average a combined 25.3 of the tribe's 52.2 ppg. nobody else, even the esteemed johnmark ludwick, gets more than 6.3. our 59:95 assist/turnover ration really isn't getting it done, either. i'm looking at you, kendrix brown.

zman said...

Ralph Wilson should unleash his GC on Howard for trademark infringement.

Mark said...

That's great that the Tribe are playing tonight, but we're all more excited for Michigan State-Duke, right?

I mean, Florida is playing UCF (leading scorer: Marcus Jordan) at the Amway Arena but that's a just a side dish too.

T.J. said...

Jordan's kid with a good start to this game...

Igor said...

Tribe up 35-22 at the break. Monster first half for the Tribesters.

Big Blue at home against the white-hot Spiders, down 1 at the half. Either of these teams holds the Tribe to single digits in the first half.

Igor said...

Guess what NBA first-round draft pick is providing color commentary for the ODU-Richmond?

Mark said...

Cal Bowler (Bowlder)? Drank with him once.

Igor said...

Mark wins. Cal Bowdler.

Eric (Extra P.) said...

It's worse than you think. Centenary's in the process of re-classifying to DIII.

Danimal said...

Brent musberger and Bobby Knight on the vatech Purdue game....

Mark said...

Florida sucks. UCF and Jordan's kid win.

T.J. said...

Final: Tribe 76, Bison 62. Next game - Sat at noon vs VCU. That's gonna be a rough one.

TR said...

The name of Pepsi's CFO: Hugh Johnston

Carry on.

Igor said...

Weird stat of the night: Richmond made 100% of their free throws against Old Dominion last night . . . or I should say free throw. 1 for 1 on the night, and that one shot came with a minute and a half to play. Wild, wacky stuff.

TR said...

Is there a porn movie called Pandora's Box? There should be. They could spell it like this: Pandora's Boxxx.

Danimal said...

why is "weird" spelled wEIrd and not wIErd? it doesn't follow the rule. wordsmiths?
dukes - 6-1
had my first martini of the season last night...with the blue cheese stuffed olives. so choice.

T.J. said...

Thanks for that update Ferris.

rob said...

qatar, huh?

Igor said...

Thanks, Rob. File Under: Comments that make me execute madly curious Ghoogle and ESPN searches to see what the hell happened.

Danimal said...

nice qatar.

T.J. said...

I'm an air qatar champion.

mayhugh said...

I love that game - Qatar Hero.

TR said...

One neat thing about Qatar is that there's no generally accepted way to pronounce it. Some say it like "kuh-TAR." Others (including all senior executives in the oil industry) say it as "cutter".

It will be FASCINATING to hear this played out over the next 12 year. We should revisit The Teej's air qatar joke at that time to decide if it was truly funny or not.

TR said...

Mayhugh's too.

T.J. said...

Mayhugh, wasn't Diamond Dallas Page's finishing move the Diamond Qatar?

Dave said...

i am guessing i am the only g:tb staff member who has been to qatar. dcs varsity soccer played its tournament there. it was really hot. in november.

went to the mall there-- there was an arcade, and i saw two women playing air hockey and they were wearing the full black chador-- covered from head to toe. of course, i didn't have a camera. who brings a camera to the mall? even if you're in qatar.

Danimal said...

oil executive: she's got a nice turd qatar.

T.J. said...

Can you guys imagine how absurd Dave's 2022 World Cup previews are gonna be?

Igor said...

Dave, how did they pronounce Qatar there?

And I'm glad your soccer team forgot all about that macho shit and learned how to play Qatar.

T.J. said...

First song they learned?

"While My Qatar Gently Sleeps"

Igor said...

Wow, was I waiting for that one. Sharing the brain with the Teej.

Igor said...

Dave, at the mall, did they have a Qatarget? You can get cloaks for very, very cheap there.

Igor said...

I'm sorry. That last joke was Qatarded.

T.J. said...

Just wait until Greg starts quoting the Stoneqatars episode of Simpsons.

Danimal said...

ya know what i just love on my fish? qatar tar sauce

Danimal said...

there used to be a pretty decent line of golf clothing back in the 90's....qatar & buck

zman said...

Get your collective minds out of the Qatar.

Danimal said...

obama on the income of the wealthy man: qatar'n half

T.J. said...

Remember UNC hoops player who cried fake racism on a Utah player? Makhqatar Ndiaye?

Danimal said...

whale fishermen from said country....
QATAR SHE BLOWS!

T.J. said...

My favorite 70s detective show?

Qatarski and Hutch

rob said...

girl in my office is having some pyschological issues. seems she's a qatar.

zman said...

I saw a Ukiyo-e exhibit at the Smithsonian once. Impressive display by those woodqatars.

zman said...

Mariano River has an impressive qatar too.

zman said...

As does Mariano Rivera.

Igor said...

Coors Qatar is the worst of the N/A beers. Bill Walton says it's Qatarrrrrrible.

zman said...

Unrelated to Qatar.

rob said...

alternative pronounciation of qatar is qatar.

as in 'i bowled a qatarball'.

Danimal said...

this Assange dude from wikileaks deserves to be qatarred and feathered.

rob said...

nice, danimal - way to combine current events

zman said...

Wasn't QaTar Burton on Reading Rainbow?

rob said...

booooooo

T.J. said...

Is their national anthem the Qatar Spangled Banner?

Igor said...

[degenerating quickly]


Remake of Qatarzan, Lord of the Desert coming out soon. Qatarantino is directing. Word is full frontal nudity (meaning ankles) from Qatara Reid.

Danimal said...

the word after tar in the dictionary is qataradiddle...or am i qataradiddling?

zman said...

Qatar? I hardly know her!

Danimal said...

yes. i am now done with this game. unless i think of something else that's decent that is. i qatarnt do it anymore.

Squeaky said...

Just got off back to back to back conference calls.

Russia and Qatar. What the hell. I guess oil money does all the talking these days with FIFA.

Side note, Dave, check out www.bandsoup.com. You can upload greasetruck songs for the world to hear.

That is all.

Mark said...

Qatar? I barely know her!

Mark said...

Damn you Zman!

When I see an attractive girl, I often think I want to Qatar up.

Danimal said...

way to go honey, you clogged the qatarlet again.

rob said...

danimal's disregarded all rules at this point. he's scatting and bebopping all over the place.

Danimal said...

hunkerin down for an all day'r is a qatarsis for me

Igor said...

Danimal saved the best for (I hope) last.

Danimal said...

yes...done now...seriously...i quittar.

zman said...

After proclaiming "I just wanna dance!" TR qatarug at the corporate Christmas party.

Dave said...

guys, wish i saw this earlier. they pronounced it "cutter."

i really thought we were first in line for the 2022 world cup, but i guess we got beat out by a qatar.

Igor said...

From the looks of some of Dave's pictures, a lot of people over there look like they could use a trip to the Hair Qatary.

Dave said...

a lot of teenage girls were really upset by the US losing the bid.

i hope they don't turn into qatars.

Dave said...

i am going to dig up my e-mail update from qatar and start working on a world cup preview.

what is the status of jazzfest?

rob said...

-1 for dave for repeating a joke.

Igor said...

Jazzfest is a go for me, weekend of may 8. See you at Igors.

Dave said...

i figured no one would be tasteless enough to do a cutter joke, but i guess i'll have to read the comments more carefully.

zman said...

We're known for our tasteful sensibilities around here

TR said...

Any good NBA games on tonight?

mayhugh said...

TR - You may want to check out Phoenix at Golden State. There's a lot of buzz.

Mark said...

Mayhugh and Steve Nash tell the same jokes.

zman said...

So to rob and Dave!

TR said...

You suck at typing today, Zman.

TR said...

You shouild try my Tall & Fat store. No offense.

T.J. said...

Thorton Mellon joke?

Marls said...

If that dress had pockets you'd look just like a pool table.

mayhugh said...

I did catch the very beginning of the game, but LeBron looked pretty relaxed a few minutes in. Now he looks like he's coming close to savoring the role. He's going to put up 25 shots minimum at the pace he's going.

mayhugh said...

Eric Spoelstra does not give good interview.

rob said...

you didn't like 'it's not his first rodeo'?

rob said...

this cam newton thing is some bulllllshit. it's more than a little fishy that the only thing standing between a non-aq school and the bcs championship game is a half-assed investigation.

and it was nice of the cavs to show up this evening.

T.J. said...

So, ASU wants to win the "SPF 30 Civil War Cup Axe" more, eh?

mayhugh said...

38 points in 30 minutes. That's pretty doggone impressive.

The Cleveland signs I saw for pretty overwhelming, though the one that said something like "Looks like you left your talents in Cleveland" was kind of ticklish.

Marls said...

RIP Ron Santo
