Up, Up and Away

mcgeescola1230.jpg

This AP Photo of rookie JaVale McGee colliding with Houston's Luis Scola last night caught my attention. I usually like to put funny cutlines under pictures, but this one had me lost for words. Any suggestions?

(Keep it clean, people)

There's just no way to keep that clean. No way.

You have to read this "article" by the grade-schooler that the *Examiner* hired to blog for the Rockets.

http://www.examiner.com/x-1154-Houston-Rockets-Examiner~y2008m12d29-These-woeful-Wizards-have-a-little-fight-in-them

Here's my favorite excerpt:

Regardless, similar to the Detroit Lions, both the Lions and Wizards face the same problem — both teams have played poorly. However, for either squad, their lack of success isn’t due to a lack of effort. Similar to the Lions, the Wizards face the severe lack of competent personnel. When you look at the Wizards' supporting cast, one word comes to mind — pathetic.

With players such as Juan Dixon, Etan Thomas and Dominic McGuire coming off the bench, I feel confident in my declaration that none of these after-mentioned players would spend any time in the Rockets rotation.

mike...you put that picture up and ask people to keep it clean....hahahaha

at the risk of not being clean:

JaVale: "Bueno Luis, want a drink?, or some nuts?"

How 'bout this....

An avid soccer player in his youth, JaVale McGee has had trouble adjusting to the NBA's rules allowing players to use their hands.


Guess not. (Hey, I tried, OK?)

Second of back to backs, last year we swept them(Hornets)and that was because of EJ's excellent work with the X's and O's phase of those two contest,well no chance of that happening with Etap's coaching them up,looking for a big game from Blatche,question who will D-MAC guard tonite? hopefully McGee will get some time tonite.

I think caron's words of wisdom for all the lakers fans last year after hitting that clutch three would be the best quote possible, but that doesn't pass the cleanliness test so here's a not so honest effort to clean it up, Luis:"I went black and can never go back." Javale needs a girlfriend.
