While Confusingous believes in redemption, somehow this seems to be too much too soon:
NFL selling Vick dog jersey
What’s next, a Donte Stallworth beer koozie? If you own a dog and a twisted sense of humor, the NFL is ready and willing to help turn your four-legged friend into a Michael Vick fan for the small fee of $39.99 plus tax and shipping. That’s the price you’ll pay for the “custom pet jersey” selling on the NFL’s Web site at NFLshop.com, where a Daily News reporter placed an order Wednesday for a Philadelphia Eagles dog jersey, size large, with the No. 7 and the name “VICK” on the back. – New York Daily News
Without the written corespondence, we would be without this gem of a letter!
Confusingous has got you covered.
Confusingous hooks you up:
You may remember Confusingous’ plea to Hasheem Thabeet to stay at UConn that was run a few weeks back. And you may remember his promise to keep the Hasheem Thabeet wallpaper up on his PC for as long as he was still eligible to play for UConn. Well, the wallpaper is down.
It has been reported that, indeed, Hasheem has hired an agent. So the wallpaper is down.
You may also remember that Our Resident Seer also promised that his Frank Zappa wallpaper would return once he confirmed that Hasheem was no longer eligible to play. Well, he was so struck with this gem that he had to put it up:
So, Hasheem, you have been replaced by Marcus Camby (UMass guy, YUCK!), Allan Houston (will the Knicks ever not be paying this guy?), Latrell Sprewell (hope he can feed his family, still), LJ ‘Four Point Play‘ and Mark Jackson (he was better when he wore 13).
So, Confusingous wishes you luck in the NBA, Hasheem.
Now, please go to NY!
In the immortal words of Peter Frampton, ‘This is an oldie but a goodie’:
Confusingous wants Hasheem Thabeet to stay in school. Of course, there are selfish reasons. The main one being that him being on the court guarentees them a spot in the NCAA tournament (possible sanctions aside). But, Confusingous thinks he needs to.
His offense has improved remarkably since he arrived at Storrs a few years back. But it still needs work. He needs to develop an instinct for getting to the rim fast. He needs to develop a face-to-basket game. While he plays like a ten foot monster on the defensive end, he shrinks to a 6 foot guard on the offensive end.
One more year will turn a draft question mark into an exclamation point. Confusingous is aware of the challenging home situation that Hasheem faces, and would not blame him for taking the money to improve his family’s life. However, one year at school could make the difference between first round bust and NBA All-Star.
So, while Hasheem mulls over his tough decision, Confusingous has started a vigil. His Windows background will be an image of Hasheem. If Hasheem stays, it will remain so throughout the 2009-10 College Basketball season.
So, Hasheem, some food for thought.
Hasheem, this will be on Confusingous’ desktop as long as you are eligible to play for UConn! Sleep on it! (image – femalefan.com)
The Four Point Play:
Ever been close to a dream being realized?
Confusingous is right there. First, he will be attending the Final Four this weekend and see his Huskies go for a 3rd National Championship. So one dream nears realization.
However, the location, Detroit, allows for the realization of a second dream.
Our Resident Seer is obsessed with Tim Hortons. Could it be that Tim Horton was a former Ranger? Could it be that it serves coffee and donuts? Could it be all of the above? Regardless, Detroit has 100’s of these bad boys in and around it’s vicinity. There is like 50 of them in Windsor!
So close to a dream. So close.
