Mike and I are G-Chatting while watching Gameday on ESPN. Because I'm lazy, I'll do a copy and paste:
Michael: oh man
this should be YCS gold
the college gameday crew is going to come back from break an "try to define 'toughness'"
me: yeah, i'm watching this
Michael: i loved bobby knight's commentary earlier
"i never thought id get out of this building alive...i needed digger to protect me three different times...the hell with green."
me: even better they just screwed up, came back from commercial too early and got cut off
i have the volume on sorta low, and about three different times when they said Digger, i swore i heard "n****r"
[The analysts pick guys in college hoops that are "tough." Hubert picks Tyler Hansborough and Blake Griffin. Jay picks Stephen Curry.]
me: i love how hubert's two guys who are "tough" also happen to be like the two best players in college bball
and jay's being the third best
nice sign: "luke eats huskies for breakfast"
Michael: (forehead smack)
me: i guess he's mongolian now
[Out of nowhere, the Harlem Globetrotters appear on screen to preview an upcoming segment as they go to break.]
Michael: harlem globetrotters? WTF?
me: hahaha yes!
just because i love that music
[After commercial, the crew segways to a piece about the death of Kay Yow.]
Michael: ah, the obligatory human interest piece dovetails nicely with the "ok, the segment we just had was completely irrelevant. because 'toughness' on a basketball court can't hold a candle to a cancer battle."
me: of course
psh, big deal
pretty much every woman gets that
Michael: did she have cancer cancer or just cancer?
me: if she was so tough she'd have survived
[The screaming student section has gone silent as they've done the Kay Yow segment.]
Michael: man guys, way to suck the wind out of the building
me: hahaha, no foolin
Michael: i want to hear the nd band play "every time we touch" like the last time i went to the JACC
something inherently hilarious about a techno song sung by a german vixen being played on a tuba by a fat kid from renssallear
me: i also like the sign "Thabeet can't spell ESPN"
typical ND elitist / borderline racist slam
Michael: i also liked the thoroughly unoriginal sign "what was the price of the laptops?"
what a timely slam
got any hanging chad or judge ito signs too?
me: yeah, what the hell
a) we covered that one better than they ever could [refering to cardboard laptops with Marcus Williams's mugshot on the screen, crafted by friend-of-YCS Mach for the Marquette student section during our 2006 battle with then-#2 UConn] , b) i don't think they would have any remaining players from that team, and c) that guy's a fuckwad
Michael: yea no kidding. that was 3 years ago. anyone from that team 3 years ago, have either graduated or gone to the NBA.
[Harlem Globetrotters segment begins.]
sweet georgia brown!
me: i wish this music just followed me around all day
me: i would probably do everything with a lot more flair and style
do little 360 twirls before i put stuff on people's desks at work
flip my kitchen utensils in the air while i'm cooking and catch them with my toes
'twould be badass
Michael: i dare digger to pick either uconn or mu
[Digger submits his pick of Notre Dame, citing some rubbish about Harngody playing big or something.]
me: digger shocks the world
Michael: that almost reads like an onion headline
digger shocks world, picks ND to win at home when ND hosts college gameday
...Here you go, Mike:
