Ankle Dragons

I almost didn't get to this post...my phone has been ringing off the hook since midnight. Blue started out his post by saying he is not going to talk about NBA free agency, but he did anyways. I am going to talk about NBA free agency.

Jug's prediction: LeBron, Wade, and Bosh are going to join forces and start their own NBA franchise. I believe we have mentioned this before. This team will be in Temhio. LeBron and Wade have enough extra money from driving up the price of their MSG stock and then selling high to invest in this new team. The Temhio Ankle Dragons will dominate the NBA for years to come. Other NBA players will want to come here because rumor has it they have a connection for some suite apartments.

The Ankle Dragons will also hire an unknown UPS worker from Wisconsin to run the shipping department handling the millions of orders for new Ankle Dragon jerseys and other merchandise. This lucky UPS worker won a Woessay contest which outlined why he deserved to be hired for this position. Sadly, no overtime will be available for this position.

*NOTE: The Ankle Dragons are still looking for a team logo...the person who submits the winning logo gets 2 free courtside season tickets in the new AXE Arena, and a team bed skirt with the new team logo.

AXE Arena will have a suite bronze statue of Patrick Chewing getting dunked on, just because its funny.

tem said...

" I find this picture much sexier than I should. Am I the only one?"

it is a good picture.

i feel my sexy level assessment of the photo is right where it should be.

BLUE said...

i was disappointed in the photo

her nose is fucked up

tem said...

tem says her nose is ok

BLUE said...

blue thinks EA's nose is ok, we obviously have differing nose opinions

tem said...

yes, yes we do

tem said...

blue will not be offered a position on the ankle dragons if it involves nose assessment.

tem said...

softball ruling question:


two outs. bases loaded.

batter hits a ground ball to the short stop.

short stop field the ball and throws it to third.

the throw is bad, so the third baseman comes off the bag and ends up tagging the guy going from 2nd to 3rd instead of just touching 3rd for the out.

the runner from 3rd to home made it home before the tag was applied.

does the run count?

tem said...

the ump says yes, because the baserunner was tagged and not forced out.

umps says the tag made it a timed play so the run counts if it scored before the tag.

the fact that the runner was in a force situation didn't matter. so the ump says.

i have no idear whats right.

Meiz said...

log in comment

jugdish said...

i think the run does count...was the tag a rough touch type tag?

tem said...

actually there was no tag. our 3rd baseman did step on the bag, but the ump said he tagged the runner.

it was a phantom tag.

tem said...

i have found this gem on the google machine:

"All runs scored before the 3rd out is actually obtained will count if the third out occurs in a tag-out situation."

tem said...

but not sure if tagging a guy makes it a tag out situation. it was a force situation, but we tagged him anyway.

BLUE said...

I would count the run

because I can

BLUE said...

the knicks should hire barkley

BLUE said...

the best question is why did he throw to 3rd instead of 2nd or first...that's awkward

BLUE said...

I would count the run, just for that reason alone

tem said...

he threw to third because the second baseman wasn't on 2nd base. because the second baseman is an idiot.

also the runner running from 2nd to 3rd was 55yrs old with a knee brace on.

Meiz said...

Bucks overpaid for Drew Gooden. I'm cool with that. Needed a 4 to play alongside Bogut.

tem said...

add lebron to that team and you have your new NBA champs.

I don't think the bulls should be telling Lebron, "we have joakim noah"

noah's a douche, i don't think that's a positive.

BLUE said...

"can't sign people until the 8th right?"

shhhhh

correct though, but guys can verbally agree though

BLUE said...

sounds like joe johnson is going to stay in the ATL

El Padrino said...

looks lile JJ to stay in hotlanta with a max deal

and bron will have a decision by monday

tem said...

it'll make lebron look more attractive by comparison.

tem said...

you know, if lebron was feeling down about his looks

El Padrino said...

is that your excuse for being scooped on the Joe Johnson story?

jugdish said...

i verbally agreed to sign lebron.


once the Ankle Dragons form, there will be an extra team in the East. Since the dragons will have all those suite players...the Knicks will have none and be rendered obsolete. The Russian Mark Cuban will buy them out...move his team to Brooklyn and rename them the Knets. Lp will become a fan.

that's just damn funny

TheBethWhite said...

"The Russian Mark Cuban will buy them out...move his team to Brooklyn and rename them the Knets."

I originally thought the name should instead be The Nyets, but then (if my Russian is accurate) remembered that would mean they are called The No's.

no means yes

-YES; this has not been mentioned enough during the WC. It's really nice to be able to root for the same team as friends I'm used to sports-feuding with (whether they're Packers fans, White Sox fans, etc.). We've been lucky in 2010; Olympic hockey and the WC were pretty great.
