At 12:08 pm yesterday, the following missive was sent into the twitterverse:
Real Tracy Murray, UCLA Bruin, Washington Bullet/Wizard, '93-'94 NBA three-point shooting leader. Not some ersatz Tracy Murray, or a Tracy Morgan, or a Traci Lords (though that might've been interesting in its own way). And @gheorghetheblog responded as only he could, running through the early 90s Bullets roster in an extended comic riff. My personal fave:
Team G:TB has extensive experience with NBA players, to be sure, but even we didn't expect the response we got from Murray. After a multi-tweet extravaganza that featured Don MacLean, Jim Lynam's cabbage smell, Rod Strickland's hot dog fetish, Cluj University, and Lost plot lines, real Gheorghe's former teammate gave us this:
As @gheorghetheblog later told me in an exclusive interview, Tracy Murray is a "good dude". (Contrary to what his twitter persona might lead you to believe, @gheorghetheblog is a man of few words.) Looks like we've got a new FOG:TB, one that actually happens to be a FOG, to boot.
