Nutz

Like a 2004 Yankees AL Champions t-shirt, today's originally scheduled post will only see the light of day in sub-Saharan Africa, adorning the dust-streaked screen of Manute: the Blog's readership. Shame, really, because our exposition of the movable object versus stoppable force conflict scheduled for Sunday in Cleveland was quite an effort by our standards. Cleveland's victory over the Clippers last night dulled the shine on this weekend's Wiz/Cavs battle of dipshits, but since everything happens for a reason, we soldier on, Kellen Winslow-style.


So we don't get to declaim extensively about 0-25 against 0-27. We'll still celebrate, for yesterday marked a milestone. Happy first birthday to Nutzy the Squirrel, mascot of the Richmond Flying Squirrels. Season opener is April 7. I believe a road trip is in order.

BONUS: A rare clip of Nutzy in action:

Dammit. I can't wait for someone else to use the "van der Waals forces" tag.

I found video footage of the birthday boy.

Speaking of post tags, what do you guys think is the most often used tag at GTB -- besides "Filler" and "The 12 Days if Gheorghemas"?

Florida-Tennessee at 6 pm. Going for a massage first to ease my Vol related tension.

T.J. said...

Probably with Tenn is they're so Jekyll and Hyde. I say the crap version shows up tonight.

I've been listening to Digital Underground ever since Mark made the Sex Packets call last week. Some of it holds up really well.

Not getting the Highcheese commentary on the sevens tourney. What's up with that?

Dave said...

T.J. said...

Ohio St undefeated no longer.

Cole Norris of Cleveland St. Remember the name come March.

J'mison is not a fucking name.

zman said...

Doesn't rob owe Mark a bottle of J'mison?

Mark said...

Rob ditched his wife and kids and sprang for drinks when I was in DC this summer. So we're even. For now.

TJ...you crashing my wedding as Greg's date or what?

Danimal said...

Antawn J'mison led Cavs to a win last night.

Mark, when are the nuptials? I'll make sure Greg and I get the Dumb and Dumber tuxes.

Two weeks from today, Teej.

Between Norris Cole's amazing game/stat line & Scotty Hopson continuing his habit of stellar play against UF, it's high top fade day in CBB.

T.J. said...

Mark, who did Parson bump into early in this game? He has been gimpy ever since..

Mark said...

Ran into Alex Tyus. Who is have a very underwhelming senior season. Still, Gators are 9-2 in the SEC. Aww-fucking-yeah.

Mark said...

I'm fairly psyched for Nova-Pitt. Nova's kind of my go to fave Big East team of the last 5-6 years and I really, really like this year's Pitt squad.

T.J. said...

I wish blogger would stop sucking so I could comment on all these games...

rob said...

just saw what norris cole did. gracious.

T.J. said...

Hopefully for your sake you've missed Digger's performance right now.

T.J. said...

Spurs scored 71 points, total, last night.

They have 72 at the half vs the Wiz.

rob said...
