Pearl Harbor. The Great Depression. 9/11. Tim Duncan's birth. Herpes. It's time to add Gilbert "Hibachi" Arenas' recent knee injury to that list of most tragic events in US history.
Gilbert is not just the best basketball player ever to breathe air, he's also the best guy ever. In a poll of the world, Gilbert was voted #1 overall greatest person, with Mike Sellers and Dave Grohl tying for #2. Gilbert will now be out for at least a couple of months, but the pain caused by this setback will stay with us forever.
Maybe this is karma for the Manu Ginobili post from earlier, but I really think it's God's way of leveling the playing field. The only question I ask is, when the fuck are Tim "Fagboy McGee" Duncan's knees gonna give out? Hopefully, within the week.
I'd also like to give a shout out to Hurricane Gustav for doing work down south. Keep it up Gus.
He finally did it! Chad Johnson has parted ways with his bland last name and adopted the much flashier Ocho Cinco. Personally I don't know what took him so long to make the switch. I mean who would you rather meet, another Mr. Johnson or...Mr. Ocho Cinco. Congratulations Chad on making possibly the best decision of your life, we all know you needed something to make you stand out from everyone else.
The above graph shows Teddy Michaels' progress before and after shaving his epic mustache. As you can see, Teddy's performance has gone downhill since shaving the stache. Factors going into these statistics include overrall demeanor, ability to procure fake IDs for Jake, decathalon contributions, and MIA frequency. The results supports our hypothesis that mustaches=greatness, lack of mustache=disappointment.
Praise the lord, it turns out Manu Ginobili needs knee surgery. Ginobili is not only unAmerican, he's also teammates with Tim Duncan. Thus, by his lack of association with the U.S. and his association with Duncan, Ginobili is a huge piece of shit. I guess your knee injury is karma for bringing your gay Argentine, pseudo-European style game to the NBA.
TO ALL THE OTHER FOREIGH PLAYERS IN THE NBA: Let Manu's injury serve as a warning for any of you thinking about coming to the states. If you come to our league, we will fuck up your knees.
I regret to inform that at about 2 am on August 9th, comedian/actor Bernie Mac perished from complications of pneumonia. For those of you who were familiar with Bernie Mac know that the world lost one of its best. Coming soon will be a list of the top 10 Bernie Mac moments.
