To be fair, she was sleeping with one of the Washington Generals.

It would be funny if your wife thought you were going to hit her and you threw a bucket of confetti on her. Well, at least it would be funnier than actual spousal abuse.

The sun rise is kind of like sex with Kobe Bryant. Whether or not you want it to, it's going to happen.

I will publicly say that I will never go to any of their games again. They ran this publicity program, promising lifetime free admission to kids born in the year 2000. So when my daughter was born I filled out the registration, sent it in, got a confirmation that they received it and the free admission certificate would be forthcoming, and then they never sent any of them. So, not only will they never see my daughter at any games, they won't see my three others, or me or my wife. That makes 5 paying guests who won't go because they decided to not send one certificate to my daughter. Also, after a few months a bunch of junk mail and spam was addressed to my infant daughter. Classy.

You are the kind of person that takes a handful of candy from the bowl at the doctor's office.

You got it baby!!! I took three free suckers at the pharmacy the other day because they had that Rx on them. But the reason this pissed me off so much was that they promised a free ticket and then just used the sign up to make a list for sale to the junk mail and spammers.

On the flipside, I am not really a basketball fan and probably wouldn't have gone anyway, unless my 2000 baby got in free.

Well, the difference between the Globetrotters and a regular NBA team, is this dude will probably be getting a pink slip soon. They've got tons of guys trying out all the time, and as an organization they put their good will ambassador image first and foremost over almost anything. He'll be easily replaceable by someone that is willing to not be a thug, and represent the team in a good way.

nicely done subby

He was my first guess.

He was a thug when he played at Arizona.

/he was the only one I knew that played on the team too
//2nd guess was Donnie Boyce

Come on you only have to pay a fine and go to anger management classes for domestic violence. So your first time you beat/hit/etc.. you S.O. you get off kinda easy!

Damnit!

About two weeks ago, I was telling a friend of mine about the Arizona team that went to the finals that Edgerson was on. Then, I saw he was on the Globetrotters. I see this link, and think "don't be Edgerson."

/aw.

Edgerson had the best 'fro in modern Pac-10 history, easily beating out Josh Childress.

I'm going to go see them, and bring several friends. At least I can be sure your whiney ass won't be there.

Meh, wake me when they bust him with a roach in the ashtray of his Escalade and find an unregistered 9mm under the passenger seat. That's when you've really made it.

Or maybe that's football...

So, they get a pass for making some marketing promise, which probably generated a lot of free publicity, and not following through?
If this had been McDonalds I bet you'd be the first one to biatch about not getting a free burger.

Haha, I heard an interview on the radio with a new globetrotter the other day..

Radio Host: "So, how's the globetrotter thing going so far?"
Globetrotter: "Well, we haven't lost a game, so I can't complain."

fantastic answer.
