The other side of sports

Trash talk is the mental beauty of sports. And every player bit at the chance to dish some back to Charles Barkley, one of the more controversial figures to play the game. Even if it’s overly enthusiastic over a single play from Kevin Hart Tim Hardaway.

By today’s standards, that excessive celebration would easily be a technical foul. Oh, how I miss the 90’s.

With respect to the NFL, I’m sure fans forget exactly how brutal football really is, and I think this inside look from Brian Cushing mic’d up last year reminds people just how physical the game is – and how tough Cushing is. Oh, and Shawn Lauvao (#66) is a little bitch.

Finally, no sports post is complete without Tim Tebow Jeremy Lin, who last month was trying to get settled in his new home in Houston after signing a 3-year, $25.1 million contract.

Lin texted the above to his new Rockets teammate, Chandler Parsons, who then tweeted

Amusing, yes. Cheap? Are you kidding me? (As the Yahoo! writer suggested.) That’s sad when a million dollars suddenly doesn’t allow you to sleep over at a friend’s place and you have to go to a hotel.

How do hashtags work? Can I just make up my own? #Linsanityforever

Jeremy Lin: The man off the court

Before Jeremy Lin blew up and the subsequent advent of Linsanity, the New York Knicks point guard made some YouTube videos with a friend. I haven’t seen them all, but here are some funny ones I have seen. Who said a Harvard grad wouldn’t have humor?

And one.

I always knew how Morgan Freeman felt about Black History Month, but it’s great to see the transcript. I think it’s safe to say most non-blacks find the idea of Black History Month ridiculous; if only all blacks felt the same way as Freeman on how to end racism, though, I admit that’ll never happen.

A perfect example of girls being over-analytical.

Replace “death star” with house/bank account/’65 Chevy/life/marriage/etc.

One of the few wise Asian insults. Not to be confused with “chink eyes” or making your eyes small with your fingers.

Is it internet picture week? There’s been an explosion of internet pictures the last couple of days so I’ll post my favorites. Thanks to all my Facebook friends.

Of course, a big chick posted this one, and while I have nothing against the right-leaning set, I do have to disagree with the caption for this picture:

“Just because you’re skinny doesn’t mean you’re hot! Bring the curves back!”

Well, let me say this:

Just because it’s the national average doesn’t mean it’s ideal.

While I almost don’t believe our fat country produces an average heavyset girl, I would guess the other two labels hold true.

Nothing like taking a shot against Asian stereotypes. Although it might be a poor choice of picture. He honestly looks like he’s struggling to drive. Doesn’t he?
