LeBron Apparently Learned His Flopping From Sesame Street
June 12, 2013
Remember the stumbling, bumbling chef on the classic Sesame Street?
Well, obviously LeBron has been watching these old YouTube clips for tips and tricks.
This is a limited reel of his all time flops. He had another one last night in Game 3, which of course got him a courtesy foul call, and then minutes later when he "panther-swipes" Tim Duncan and gives him a face rake with an arm gouge (but hey, did get the ball... WITH HIS ELBOW!) the refs swallow their whistled.
I'm angry that I missed this hour long special last night. But thankfully, it's locked in my crosshairs for next Monday. My god, this little video clip alone give me the golf nerd chills. Awesome stuff. Now dry out, Merion!
The Guy Who Accidentally Sank Jimmy The Greek's Career Has Died
June 07, 2013
His name was Ed Hotaling, and he certainly had no intention of making Jimmy The Greek a truly tragic figure of foot-in-mouth self-destruction.
But he was the guy, holding the mic as a TV reporter in Washington D.C., when Jimmy decided to expound on the superiority of the black athlete, slave breeding, and the need for white guy affirmative action in coaching.
Hotaling was a former CBS Middle East bureau chief and horse racing author. He was 75. Don't blame him. He was just doing his job.
Meanwhile, for a very funny listen, here's Opie and Anthony with the late (and great) Patrice O'Neal, trying to "retro-fit" The Greek's out-of-bounds comments to conform to current standards.
