Sleeper Pick

YOOOOOOO Sports!!!!!!!

If you thought the Knicks were dysfunctional

because some of their players refuse to play, wait until you hear about the recent accusation that Nate Robinson has committed a hate crime  in front of 20,000+ people . . . . against Yao Ming. And apparently the People’s Republic of China is none too pleased about it.

To learn more about the matter we brought in an expert, Jerry Hu. Not only does our guest star provide insightful analysis of this accusation and the inner workings of state-run television but he also chimes in about fantasy sports trading etiquette. FYI, etiquette’s etymology: French, étiquette, literally ‘not acting like Don Nelson’.

I know, I couldn’t believe that Merriam-Webster is as into Don Nelson as we are. They must have dated back in the 1920s when Don Nelson was running the “No rebounding, no defense, NO PROBLEM” system (sometimes known as “Nellie Ball”) at Iowa U.

I don’t know how this is defined in online dictionaries but our expert knows it when he sees it:

COMMANDMENT ONE OF TEN : THERE IS NO LIFE AFTER TOM BRADY.

(still debating on whether “COMMANDMENT ONE OF TEN: THOU SHALL NOT LIVE A LIFE AFTER TOM BRADY” was funnier)

I’m gonna give it to you raw right now (that’s what she said): The Patriots dropping 14 million on Matt Cassel is the biggest slap to Tom Brady’s face since Bridget Moynahan found out 12 wasn’t going to get back together with her (even though she pulled the goalie on the quarterback (2 for 2 on mixed sports analogies) to try and pry Mr. Cool from the  richest supermodel in the world (but, but I was in IROBOT!)))
