Chris Broussard will pour EXPLOSIVE holy water all over you

by The Cavalier on February 13, 2007 · 10 comments

Two EXPLOSIONS in one day? Yes, it happened. Seems there was lots of legit news today, and we don’t know that we’ll get to it tomorrow. Alas…

Gilbert Arenas’s pr people pretend a blog picked up on him planning to wear an “Agent 0″ jersey during the All-Star Game.

ESPN’s Chris Broussard says you can bring your gayness around him, as long as you let him bring his Bibleness around you. This is all fine and good, Chris, and we agree that such frank (and civil) discussion should be allowed in more places. That said, you must accept that we’re now forced to read everything you write knowing in the back of our head that you’re a little nutty.

Dude is RELIGIOUS.

Um…we always assumed that Charles Barkley v Dick Bavetta race was a joke. It’s not – here’s the press release over at SLAM.

The Spurs traded basically nothing for Bobcats forward Melvin Ely. We know he’s not playing much, but isn’t this dude like kinda good?

Memet Okur and Ray Allen have been added to the West All-Stars. At the rate these guys are dropping out, Smush Parker is a lock by Friday.

In other Gilbert news, he drops another 50-point prediction. Sorry – it excites us not. You could’ve been a god, yo – enough that Broussard would pray to you. (Zero also drop some LeBron trash talk.)

Dan Le Batard rips Coach Pat a new one, and it’s oh so warranted. (Thanks to Ryan.)

NBX has your slut-filled guide to getting sluts this weekend in Vegas.

Finally, big congrats to Henry Abbot over at TrueHoop – he’s sold the operation to ESPN, and will allegedly be able to continue doing it his way, albeit with much more access and actual funding. Nice work, sir – it should be interesting to see how unbiased you’re able/allowed to remain. Congrats!

LeBron would most likely want you taking those final freethrows, wouldn’t he Agent 9 Points?

Wow.. have we EVER seen this many All-Stars pull out due to injury? Is it a coincidence that this all-time high is happening in the first year of All-Star Weekend in Vegas? Maybe AI, Kidd, et al just want to party without the responsibility of actually having to play in the game.

Then again, Nash is out too. So maybe not.

i have a feeling Henry will be working “Gayness” into more and more ESPN headlines. call it a hunch.

Eric Williams is nothing?
Come on, he’s only 36.
Plus, that second rounder be another Rashard Lewis.

Put me down on Chris Broussard’s team. IF YOU THINK HE’S NUTTY, THEN I’M NUTTY TOO!!, LOL … I didn’t think his column was nutty at all. I don’t even think he came off as “religious,” as you say. Religious people are judgmental people. His column wasn’t judgmental at all.

Labeling an entire group of people as ‘sinners’ sounds pretty judgmental to me.

I’m almost certain that Charles is going to trip and fall flat on his face right at the start of his race against Bavetta. Of all the potential outcomes, this has to be the most probable and most hilarious.

Does this mean Kelly Dwyer will no longer be able to fill-in for Henry? I like his writing for the blog better than his writing for SI.
