Has Kevin Garnett gone NUTS?
KG made some waves this week debuting his new ANTA-brand shoes, that has Boston’s all-time record against Los Angeles on the tongue . What’s dumber than taunting the NBA’s defending champions? Etching an ever-changing series record into your shoes.
In a game against the Phoenix Suns with 4:07 left, Channing Frye, with Garnett guarding, went up for a 3 point shot and on his way down Garnett moved in and taps Frye in his lower groin area. Going to the floor grimacing, Frye immediately jumped up to confront the obvious intentional nut-shot. Garnett played the “what did I do” , role which is even more infuriating from a mans perspective. If you have ever taken a shot to the junk, you would know, even the slightest of taps can result in pain that is indescribable. KG, I don’t care how tough you are, there is a man code. Even in street fights, its a well known fact, the “boys” are off limits. Not only was a man’s manhood violated, he got under him while shooting , which could too cause serious injury. Total bitch move KG.
Winter X Games are in full affect and Ill admit, unless I’m at a sports bar surrounded by 200 TV’s, I rarely care to take notice. However, things that are deemed Extreme , usually do not disappoint. Like Torstein Horgmo, whom on Friday became the first snowboarder in X Games history to land a “triple cork.” Whats that you ask? It would be hard to explain in text exactly. Take a look..
Landing this trick on his final run in the “big air’ competition cliched the gold for the ballsy Norwegian.
KEVIN LOVE, GETS NONE?
In an obvious ploy to get Kevin Love voted into NBA’s coveted All Star game, the Timberwolves PR department sent the following video as a DVD, along with a bottle of Numb#rs cologne to every Western Conference coach. Making up a cologne is not going to cover up the stench of that team record, or desperation. I think the Wolves may be overestimating Loves star power. Sorry pal , give it a couple of years. We all know the All Star game for the most part is a popularity contest. Ask Asia who continues to vote Yao Ming into the game every year. Does they know Yao has not played much? Not sure they care.
Brady’s Hang It Up, Keep it up
Keep it Up: NHL
“Awesome idea having captains draft all-star teams. Way too go! After Friday night, you’re now almost nearly relevant!”
Hang it Up: Anaheim Ducks
“The Ducks have been accused of anti-semitism by a former player. Though in their defense, they may have just been paying tribute to their original owner, the Walt Disney Company.”
Keep it Up: Tracy Morgan
“The best part of the best sitcom on television, Tracy Morgan is pure gold. I don’t think anyone’s ever been as uncomfortable as Ernie Johnson looked”
Hang it Up: TNT Being Mad At Tracy Morgan
“Putting Tracy Morgan on live television is like putting Kanye West in the front row at an awards show. You’re asking for it!”
Keep it Up: Blake Griffin
“I don’t know what the basketball rims of America did to piss him off, but his journey for vengeance has been highly entertaining.”
Hang it Up: Robert Burton
“Donation: “a free contribution”. Free, as in you don’t get anything in return. Next time, use some of that money to buy a dictionary.”
