Manu Ginobili is giving mad props to baked potatoes

by The Cavalier on August 29, 2008

HARRISON FORDFirst off, we’re assuming today is actually the first day we’ve ever written aboot Manu, because this is the first time we’ve noticed the first “i” in his name.

Yes, we always thought it was “Ginobli”, clearly a residual effect from listening to Charles Barkley over the years.

Anyway, those of you who don’t like this San Antonio Spur are in for a full and luxurious day – he’s officially having surgery on that ankle he re-messed up in the OLY. (The link is on Hoopshype – we can’t fathom anyone wanting to read an entire article aboot Manu, but you can if you want.)

“There’s not a set date for the surgery; I don’t know which doctor will do it, but there’s one thing sure and it’s that I have to do it,” Manu Ginobili said. “Today my ankle doesn’t hurt when I walk, but it does when I try to jump or run. In these cases, the recovery period is 6-8 weeks.”

This is 3rd world medicine, people – Manu is just going to get up one day, find some random doctor, and have surgery.

The funny thing aboot that is, we don’t even think Argentina is a 3rd world country – it has like fully functioning cities, and rivers, and everything. There’s Argentina City, and Argentina Heights, Argentina Falls, Lower Argentina, and we’re almost sure the entire city of Lexington, Kentucky was transported there last April.

In other news, we were pretty pumped with the whole Barack Obama speech last night – he was short and direct, and any time you watch someone say “thank you” 97 times to 76,000 people, it’s pretty inspiring.

We may even vote in this election, although CA is always Democratic. so there’s probably not much point to it. That said, we do want to register our distaste for John McCain – anyone who doesn’t know how to use a computer is completely out of touch, and we don’t want someone like that running the USA.

Here are the latest additions to the movie list(s):

Sleeping With the Enemy, My Best Friend’s Wedding, Conspiracy Theory, Stepmom, Runaway Bride, Erin Brockovich, The Mexican, Charlie Wilson’s War, Cool World, A River Runs Through It, Legends of the Fall, The Devil’s Own, Meet Joe Black, Troy, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

We went ahead and ran through all the Julia Roberts and/or Brad Pitt films we hadn’t added yet – “Stepmom” hit the bottom 10 – congrats!

Does anyone else mix up “Legends of the Fall” and “A River Runs Through It”, btw? Same thing with “The Devil’s Own” and “Spy Game” – one is “Pitt/Redford thriller”, the other “Pitt/Ford thriller”. Like we know which is which, but we always have to take a moment to think about it.

Just to give you an idea of the type of movie we like, there’s a new trailer floating around for “Fast and Furious”, aka “The Fast and the Furious 4″.

We think it looks great. The idea of re-teaming Paul Walker and Vin Diesel, then presenting it like it’s been 20 years in the making? This is the best – we’re like, “Yeah – it’s about time!”
