When you watch as much sports as I do, you undoubtedly encounter a few athletes who leave you in awe with their physical gifts. I’ve made posts in the past about how Jamarcus Russell is a mammoth human being, but there’s another athlete in the Bay Area who leaves me in awe.
Takeo Spikes. His neck is the size of a telephone pole.
I tried to think of ways to write this post without having huge homo-erotic undertones, but I have failed you all. Here’s a piece of an IM conversation on this very topic.
Chuck Taylor: every time Takeo Spikes is on tv, i marvel at how thick his neck is. ( no prop 8 ) … his neck is like one of the 9th wonders of the world. He should have been a boxer. Mike Tyson had a neck like that
Pearl: i wonder how thick it is.
Pearl: his neck. not his dick. Chuck Taylor: his neck is wider than his head
Pearl: you’re right Chuck Taylor: this sounds too gay for me to continue
Pearl: how do you find tshirts that fit right Chuck Taylor: *throws in the towel*
As soon as I heard the news of Plaxico shooting himself in the leg, I immediately had visions of Eminem’s movie “8 Mile”, where Cheddar Bob shoots himself in the nuts during an altercation.
I’ve been known to side with players when they screw up (T.O., Ocho, Michael Vick) because everyone makes mistakes and deserve second chances. But Plaxico is a certified idiot, this guy is playing for the best team in the league and he’s all but guaranteed that they’re going to trade or release him in the offseason.
It’s officially on this Saturday. For all Sportaphiliacs who live in the Bay Area, this one’s for you!!! It’s my debut!!! That’s right, someone (M. Olivier) had the audacity to give me a mic and a permit to unleash my verbal flavors on 3,000 of my closest lil hyphies.
I remember seeing this play yesterday while stuffing my mouth full of macaroni & cheese and I WOULD have laughed harder than I didn’t have a mouth full of food. Lendale White ripped off a pretty big run, and as he got up he let out a huge taunting laugh..aimed at the Detroit Lion secondary.
“AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! YOU WEAK ASS NIGGAS!!!!!”
And CBS’s on-field cameras picked up every word. Check out the video below, courtesy of Sparty & Frields.
I have been running on C.P. time in everything lately. I realize that these scores are later than my unemployment check last week! In case you still care, here’s how last week’s picks really played out between the NFL Know-It-Alls:
HOU-16 @ CLE-6
Chuck: The Texans sneak up and win one every once in a while…. it won’t happen often. (loss)
Risse: *insert Denzel Washington’s “Training Day” voice* My Texans! (Win)
SF-22 @ DAL-35
Chuck: Terrell Owens showed all the haters that he cannot be covered by 1 man. Defensive backs are going to bracket him for the rest of the season. (win)
Risse: I don’t care that I lost this pick. I’m riding with SIngletary all the way, bay bay. (Loss)
BUF-54 @ KC-31
Chuck: Where in the hell did this offensive output com from? The Bills have been playing like crap for the last month, and now all of a sudden they get it together at my expense. (loss)
Risse: No comment. (win)
CHI-27 @ STL-3
Chuck: Its the same story that we’ve seen all season…. No Steven Jackson… No victories. Hopefully Chicago can get things together and take their division. (win)
Risse: Like I said, no love for the Rams. But the Bears’ Matt Forte, on the other hand, could get all the love he wanted…and then some! (Win)Read the rest of this entry »
