Smoot Doesn't Like Your Grandmama

A few minutes after we talked soccer, I found Smoot bragging about his athletic prowess to another blogger.

"I shoot the jumper, I play a lot of good defense, evidently," he said of his basketball skills. "I'm one of those guys, I'm versatile like that. Just put me somewhere. I probably could play soccer if I ever wanted to play it, but I never tried. Could be a shortstop; I don't know, never tried."

And as long as I'm stealing this blogger's material, he then asked Smoot about trash-talking ethics.

"It ain't nothing off limits when [opponents are] talking to me, so there's nothing off limits," Smoot said. "Now, I'm not going to the grandmamas, none of all that, but anything else is open field. You know, I'm going to talk about whatever I can. If I can use it against you and get your mind on me instead of what you supposed to be doing, I'll try."

Later I asked for clarification; if grandmamas were the only thing off, did that mean mom jokes were ok?

"I'll go to mama, but I'm not gonna do grandmama," Smoot confirmed. "I've got a little respect."

So that's mamas yes, grandmamas no, Ronaldinho yes, and Beckham no, I guess.
