The B-Town Globetrotters

I think I might get todays date tattooed backwards on my forhead, just so every time I look in the mirror I'll be reminded of what went down on this day. The Manly Mustaches validate their existence, all in the space of two games.

First game: We won. On D we smothered them like mushrooms on a delicious patty melt, and we had an opponent leave with a broken ankle (Keller, our prayers are with you). We didn't really have anything to do with his injury, but it's still pretty ghetto. Oh, and Dirk chipped a couple of teeth. Gangsta.

Second game: Here we go. We took on the Hub-City Savages, so it was kind of over before it started. But something happened to the Mustaches this game. We finally started believing in the Manly Mustache style of play, and some special things happened. At the risk of being ripped into tiny pieces by the Showstoppers propaganda machine, I'd like to declare this the single most ghetto game of intramural ever played. I kept waiting for someone to start whistling "Sweet Georgia Brown" or throw a bucket of confetti on Hill. Sure the showstoppers were good, but can they match this list of accomplishments in a single game?

1. Not one, but TWO half-court shots from Muslim Magic, sporting his freshly shorn new head with the headband, Bibby style.

2. The entire offense run through our worst player (Sorry, Nick. But you did have 7 points total and too many turnovers before this game.) 7 points (thanks kurt) on the season, until this game where he dropped SEVENTEEN. Welcome to the big time.

3. The Chef pulled a slip n' slide at the top of the key, then ooped it to himself from the three-point line.

4. A HUGE DUNK! Last play, as time expires, The Chef and All-Day run down on a final fast break. The Chef goes down on all fours, All-Day runs up, highsteppin', both shoes untied, elevates, hangs in the air just a moment, and throws it down one handed. Holy Hell, ya'll. Holy Hell.

The bad news: The Janitor forgot his camera, so you'll have to listen to the accounts of all the witnesses. They will sing songs of what they have seen this day. All you G.P.A.ers, just talk to Nick Nathan. Kim and Carolyn were there too, huge shout out. And yeah, we did lose the second game, but who cares?

Top of the world baby, top of the world.

I have to say as a witness and player in the game I have to agree. Tom "All" Day's dunk wasn't just any dunk, he threw it down hardcore, hit the gound and the floor boards quivered in fear. Everyone in the gym got on their knees and praised the mustache gods. Chuck Norris round house kicked himself to the face to make sure he was awake.

Max you have to sort out your facts Nick had 6 points the first game. Then he didn't score again until our game against the sophs in which he had one, before dropping 17 this week.

To all Showstoppers, All Day's dunk was amazing. You guys just had a weak two handed slam. The one today was suspended, tounge-flailing, grabbing quarters off the backboard dunk.

This dunk should make Jesus give him the miracle of walking on water, it was that good.

BTW when I say Jesus, I am referring to Carl Sneep.

PS: No link to the official blog of the Stoppers? (IHOB)

Weak Max. Weak.

Chuck Norris and Chet would have approved of the stache's performance.

Check out this sweet pic, it is dedicated to the Warrior Nation- "It's a great day to be alive in America! You could be dead and buried and nobody would care about your ass!"- Tom Idstrom

You've got your damn link, eric. Happy now?


And while stoppers may have come first, this was no doubt a better dunk. The earth shook. I think all the women in the gym now carry tom day's children.

Yes, I'm content.

I'm pretty sure that Chet would not approve of ANYTHING related to the Manly Mustaches.

Pretty sure chet saw a mustache shirt and liked it. He thought it looked like one of the other football coaches.

Although I'm not sure if chet would approve the team. We don't exactly follow the Warrior Way. So many people want to get strong without working...
