To be completely front with you, this post has little to do with Wally Szczerbiak more than a paragraph. Instead, I've decided to try something a little different-make a post about 11 Observations (sports related and non-sports related) and see how I like it. Feedback would be welcomed. So without further ado...
1. Jason Sudeikis is not funny. He's like a skinny Chris Farley. Without the funny. Only the obnoxiousness. It sickens me to think that this guy takes screen time from Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, and Darrell Hammond. No, seriously. Sickens me. As in...diarrhea. And vomiting.
2. JT the Brick is not a good sports radio talk show host. I don't like FOXSports. Let this be known. I've called in a couple times, and I listen to them nightly, but that doesn't mean I like them, persay. JT epitomizes my dislike for FOXSports. He's a PG-rated shock jock. He tries to appall viewers with cutting-edge statements like, 'I have lost all respect for Alex Rodriguez as a ballplayer.' Really??? That...just....blew my f@ckin mind.
Also, his factchecking is mediocre. On one of my favorite rants in mid-November, JT tore into my Lakers for losing a heartbreaker at home to a "pansy" team like Indiana. He remarked that the Celtics would never lose to a team like the Pacers. At that point the Celtics had two losses. One to Denver, and one to-(drumrolllllll pleassseee!) the Indian Basketball Pacers! Nice job, JT!
3. George Costanza is the funniest of 'The Group' on Seinfeld. Unless you consider Newman to be part of 'The Group' (Kramer, Jerry, Elaine, George). This is debatable. Jerry is out of the running, as he represents the 'voice of reason' on the show. Elaine is funny, but she's only hysterical when David Puddy or her dance moves are involved. Kramer makes it interesting, however. Yep, he's freaking hilarious, but if there's one thing that drags him down it's this: Kramer is moderately successful. He's 30something, living in a relatively nice apartment in Greenwich Village, spends his days sleeping, eating his neighbor's food, or making love. You do not do any form of labor. If this were to be my life, I'd feel like a winner. What makes George great is his complete lack of success. He works a number of odd, unsatisfying jobs, only one of which he genuinely likes. He never achieves any semblance of happiness with his women, and possesses all other characteristics of the stereotypical loser. However, this is open for discussion.
4. When did Wally Szczerbiak start wearing a facemask? Or move to Cleveland for that matter? I haven't seen Wally since what I like to call the "Glory Days" (The 2006-2007 Boston Celtics). He seems to be more successful in a reduced role with the Cavs, though, when you think about it, Wally should never haven anything more than a 'reduced role.'
The last 7 observations will be up tomorrow, as I discuss the Lakers, Superbowl 42, and query as to why 'Malcolm in the Middle' is funny.
