What’s basketball? And why are those nice ladies wearing those terribly-loud shirts with numbers on them?

I demand a Congressional investigation into Courtney Lee missing that fucking layup. Subpoena Nick “0 for 4 free throws, any one of which could have clinched Game 1 of the 1995 Finals” Anderson, if necessary.

Where’s the turkey being beheaded in the background?

It’s not a real fight unless someone takes their earrings off.

I love how they stand there awkwardly for the first few seconds of the video. It’s so, “live from my parents’ basement”.

The true tragedy of the Cavs loss to the Magic – being denied a trash-talking Dennis Kucinich.

DATE: JUNE 8, 2009




Please stop with these stupid, annoying and completely tacky dog-and-pony show sports “bets.” You know what? No one really cares–and no one has ever cared. And it’s just dumb. And who cares if Mr. Maine Governor bets a crate of Maine lobsters vs. Mr. Texas Governor who bets some “TEX MEX HOT SAUCE AND A CRATE OF TEXAS BEEF!!!” for some dumb, over-priced, steriods-fueled, only-for-the-rich dumb sports game? Who cares?

Most people can’t afford lobster or steak, so these dumb bets likes this are wrong on about 100 other levels.

Politicians: No one cares. Do something about the economy, jobs, housing, over-priced sports, public safety, affordable mass transit transportation, lower taxes, and education, and then we’ll care.

freakishlystrong June 8, 2009 at 12:47 pm

Nah…I want neck rollin’ and “talk to the hand, cuz the wrist is pissed”. And shoe throwing also.

loudmouthredhead June 8, 2009 at 12:50 pm

[re=333994]thefrontpage[/re]: Is “TEX MEX HOT SAUCE…etc etc” code for something involving illegal immigrants and/or male prostitution and/or condiments? Classic GOP good times, right there.

S.Luggo June 8, 2009 at 12:51 pm

Basketball groupies swapping tales of their sexcapades with the Fort Wayne Pistons and the Washington Capitols. It doesn’t get any better than that.

[re=333994]thefrontpage[/re]: um are you talking Maine red claws? cause only then would you be right.

[re=333994]thefrontpage[/re]: You’re just pissed off because the [your city's professional sports franchise]s didn’t make it to the [your favorite sport's championship tournament]. Next year you’ll be all, “I’ll give you a (bucket, crate, case) of _____________ if the ____________s don’t win the ______________!”

I prefer Mr. Federer myself – the Quentin Tarantino lookalike is a true champ.

d4g33z June 8, 2009 at 1:02 pm

And then Lebron James smacked them both upside the head and walked away without speaking to reporters. It’s the death of sportsmanship in Amernica, I tells ya.

Goddammit, when are they going to make out?

takes12no1 June 8, 2009 at 1:13 pm

I heard this morning that my un-governor Sanford and Alaska’s un-governor Palin had a bet over a AA hockey championship. Sanford won, gets some king salmon and gets to keep his shrimp and grits. Maybe he can give some of that salmon to the state’s teachers.

Von Qui Qui… is that you girl? ummm..welcome to King Burger…where you can have it your way, but don’t get crazy.

Hey, when does the White House replace its bowling alley with a hoops court? That was a campaign promise or something

Aloysius June 8, 2009 at 1:23 pm

Must be a slow news day.

lmj June 8, 2009 at 1:24 pm

There was no gambling. Where was the gambling? They are supposed to bet something. Like, I dunno, an LA mortgage backed security vs a Florida mortgage backed security?

What about Congresswoman Inhofe?

proudgrampa June 8, 2009 at 1:28 pm

This just does not do much for my opinion of Congress…

bonghitsforjesus June 8, 2009 at 1:30 pm

It’s a great day for equality in America when black women in congress can kick back and be as irrelevant and useless as their white male counterparts. You’ve come a long way baby!

lmj June 8, 2009 at 1:32 pm

[re=334019]TGY[/re]: I think the Obama said that the bowling alley is staying on some late night talk show. He said he’s been practicing, secretly, late at night, improving his game at the top secret underground WH bowling training command center/bunker. He is aiming for total domination at voter sports. Watch for a shuffle board being installed on the WH grounds, then you will know he is going after the oldsters -the only group that has not been overwhelming Hoped out.

No. 12 clearly didn’t come to play. She had every opportunity to bring up Kobe Bryant raping a hotel clerk and she didn’t use it.

You know what would be cool? A professional basketball league for women. I’ll bet that would be great and as far as I’ve never heard nothing like that exists.

problemwithcaring June 8, 2009 at 1:53 pm

And don’t tell Rep. Brown that Obama is on the bandwagon now too- he picked the Lakers in 6.

El Pinche June 8, 2009 at 1:55 pm

Where’s the torn out hair/weave? Where’s the blood? This is LAME.

queeraselvis v 2.0 June 8, 2009 at 2:12 pm

[re=333995]freakishlystrong[/re]: YES. I totally forgot about the shoe throwing. At least one of these chicks needs to have her eye put out by the heel of a size 10 Blahnik knockoff she BOGOed at Payless.

takes12no1 June 8, 2009 at 2:18 pm

[re=334046]S.Luggo[/re]: that could be either Alaska or SC…they only difference between the states is about 70 degrees.

pat robertsons personal trainer June 8, 2009 at 2:52 pm

the look on Brown’s face when Waters starts naming the names of Lakers not on her jersey is fucking great. She really summed up the Orlando fan base with that one. “Um, who, what? Where’s the tapioca?” I really hate the Lakers, with every fiber of basketball loving being, but I’m ok with them winning this championship precisely because of the look Brown (the quintessential Magic fan) shot when Waters went Gasol on her.

For more of Brown’s take on fantastic moments in sports, check her take a stab at a shout out for the Florida Gators.

Unlike idiot republicans, she’s mostly harmless. Being this dumb in the republican caucus gets her a chairmanship.

dijetlo June 8, 2009 at 2:59 pm

Sisters don’t get serious about fighting until they take off their jewelry, they was playin.

Not_So_Much June 8, 2009 at 3:00 pm

Well this *is* an important series. If I’m following the sports talkers correctly, I think a Lakers win would mean that Kobe isn’t an (alleged) rapist any more.
