This has to be one of the Funniest Sports coverage blogs I have ever read. Ever. I might have to join this site. It's called Deadspin.com and they provided their take on the recent Celebrity Basketball Game Taylor Hicks played a part in New Orleans. Apparently they are affiliated with This site in assembling this fascinating and hilarious story.
One paragraph, one of my favorites, "We'll admit something. We hate American Idol. With the passion of a thousand Bill Waltons. It is turrrible.(sic) But as opposed to most of the participants who were actually trying to act cool, Hicks was over the top ridiculous. He knew he had no place there and reveled in it. The man was wearing his jersey tucked into his shorts, for God's sake. Neyo kept looking at him like he was walking around without pants on. If it seems that we are unnaturally preoccupied with the man, it's just that he was so amazingly out of place, and yet mystifyingly dorky.
I laughed until tears ran. hahahahahaha. Wow, these guys are good! Gave Terrell Owens some love too.
Man, Taylor Hicks, I hope you had fun there, man, you certainly knew how to draw the attention. Apparently they could not take their eyes off of you.
Looks like that's where the Formerly Known as the CL Fan Clubbers were this weekend, as the writer includes, "...the Used-To-Bees. Women, 50 to 80 years old...apparently they would be performing at halftime..." Too it seems they were rocking the comment boxes on Hardwood Paroxysm.blogspot.com. Great little comment on the site. From Anonymous, of course.
I might be in love with these guys. Hopelessly.
