Basketball Jonez

So I'm listening to the radio this morning and they're interviewing one of the Boston Celtics.

It went something like this:

RADIO GUY: "Pretty impressive win...what are you going to do in game 3?"

BASKETBALL BRAINIAC: "Well....I'll tell you what we're NOT gonna do...we're not gonna rest our laurels."

------------------

Now as a sports fan this concerns me. I get nervous when my sports heroes have tired laurels!

(I'm resting my laurels right now)

SO TO SUM UP:
Play the game, don't speak.

Just don't rest your laurels too long. I hear that's how you get the special constables.

Sports Reporter: "So, after this big win, what will you do?"
Afhelete: I Be Going To Dibney World!"

Does this mean they'll be resting on their hardy's?

Dear Cousin Saul,

Thank you once again for breaking down racist barriers.

Love,

It isn't racist...it's a commentary on atheletes who can't speak correct english.

Damn, I get stuck in a meeting and someone else beats me to the Laurel and Hardy joke.

*sulks*

I'll tell you what I'm NOT gonna do. I'm not gonna leave a comment.

Damn. Too late.

cake said...

Well, I'm definitely not going to leave two comments.

Nope.

Oh...damn.

Bruce Willis was at last night's Celtics game. I think that his presence will finally bring credibility and notoriety to the National Basketball League (I think that's what they're calling it).

TAKE OFF!

No real ath-a-leet rests his (or her)laurels! If you rest your laurels, they'll atrophy! Same goes for your pectorals, your deltoids, your triceps, etc.!

So, to sum up:

A trophy, Good.
Atrophy, Bad.

David'Z RantZ said...

And there's nothing racist about Dibney World. Just ask the Elongated Man.

No, wait. That's Dibny. No "e."

(Why do I even know s**t like this?!?!)
