|Who says that blatant racism isn't funny???|
*As I eluded to yesterday, my nephews have been staying with us all week as their CHRISTmas gift this year from us was a 3 day baseball camp in Dublin. I’ve been told by many of you how much you enjoy my past tales of dealing with the nieces and nephews that I inherited through marriage. I am sad to report that everything went very smoothly. I didn’t make them cry at all. I didn’t call them by the wrong name (always a possibility). I played catch with them and can say that both of them have way better arms than I was expecting. The younger nephew tried to tell me that TV makes you stupid so I almost was forced to kick his ass but I refrained. He lost all credibility five minutes later by turning on Duck Dynasty (WTF is that shit?). No one pissed the bed or shit their pants so I would say that it was a success. There are Legos all over the goddamn house and the guest room is a fucking disaster, but it was pretty easy. If you want a good way to impress kids, eat a shit-load of food at dinner. They bet me a dollar that I couldn’t eat 3 squares of lasagna. Bitch please, you lost that bet before you finished that sentence. Little boys respect gluttony. So I am sorry to report that “Cool Uncle” was doing work (doggy) but maybe next time I can get them crying again.
*Back to basketball, does anyone else find it odd that Buckets is rumored to have both feet out the door on Champions Lane yet is possibly not even a first round draft pick? It seems like a foregone conclusion that DeShaun is DeGone but no one really ever says why they feel this way. I mean, it’s always better to get paid to play than to not, I suppose, but does it really make sense for him to bolt to the NBA? He could probably set a bunch of records at Ohio and make another run at a national title (assuming that they fall short this year). His stock probably isn’t going to get higher. Ahhhh—maybe that’s the worry. If you have a chance at going in the first round and getting that three year guaranteed contract, that is a hell of a lot better than a 2nd round not guaranteed contract. Another year could allow scouts to pick apart his improving but still questionable defense, non-passing skills, and average rebounding rates. He’ll always be able to score—I’d probably rather do it for the Spurs or Thunder than the Fuckeyes. Did that make sense? I think it may have.
*Speaking of leaving early, and this is a completely random thought that has no basis at all, do you think that LaQuinton Ross would consider going this year? Clearly, he is not there to get a degree and he has been pretty damn good the last 6 weeks. I’d bet that deep down he is thinking about it (because this isn’t a very good draft which you can pretty much say every year recently). He seems like a guy who is dumb enough to think that he is NBA-ready like a Josh Selby or some other flame out.
*Trey Burke Sucks. Mitch McGary-Durham LOL. Never forget. They better remember that soon.
Well, that will do it for this week. Are the Ohio Buckeyes still alive and well and getting ready to play a team that they will be an 8-10 point favorite to beat? Did they lose in hilarious fashion? Does RichRod get to claim this as a win/another loss? How about Crean Pie? Did he cost his team like we all think he will eventually? Will Trey Burke Sucks be able to stop Jeff Withey from being a serial killer tonight? Enjoy the hoops this weekend and come back on Monday where I profess my undying love for Nicky Flash in those AT&T commercials.
