Welcome Back, LeBron

LeBron James Banner

There’s a basketball game of some note tonight, in case you didn’t know, and it features a player you may or may not have heard about making his to the city he loves so much. That’s right, LeBron’s appearing in Akron tonight. Bad jokes aside, it’s pretty safe to say there hasn’t been a regular season NBA game to get this much hype since, well, maybe ever. While it’s true other franchises have played meaningful regular season games before — like the Celtics versus Lakers in the days of Magic Johnson and Larry Bird — I don’t remember they hype level being quite this high.

Of course, there wasn’t any nifty Internet technologies like Twitter, YouTube or Facebook around back then, and these entities directly fuel immediate reaction fire, making the hype meter rise to “off the charts” like levels.

With that in mind, I’ve spent a little bit of time checking out YouTube, looking for videos that help propel the first Miami Heat/Cleveland Cavaliers game since “The Decision” into something much bigger than it probably should be; and buddy, I was not disappointed:

Florida Gators Commercial Channels Glee

I’m not sure what the intended message is here — maybe the University of Florida is a safe haven for Glee-types — but man, it’s got a whole lot of pizazz going for it. I mean, is there anything else to do after watching this video besides “The Chomp?” If there is, I’m not aware of it.

South Park Answers LeBron James

During the South Park’s three-episode arc featuring Coon and Friends, they parodied LeBron James’ “What Should I Do” commercials, which generated a lot of blogosphere buzz. In the finale of trilogy, the South Park creators answered LeBron’s question:

“You should f**k off, that’s what you should do.”

So yeah, I think Cleveland Cavaliers fans would agree with that sentiment, wholeheartedly.

Cleveland’s Response To LeBron

It’s safe to say the city of Cleveland hasn’t forgiven LeBron James, witty Nike commercial or not. Even further, a number of Cavaliers fans responded to the oft-discussed ad, and the results are about what you’d expect.

“Traitors don’t leave legacies.” and “Boston. Game 5. We watched. You quit.”


Yeah, forgiveness will be a slow-going process. In other news, December 2nd is going to be an absolute treat.

South Park Nails LeBron’s Commercial

On last night’s delightful South Park episode — Mysterion Rises (f**king awesome title for an awesome episode) — Matt and Trey parodied LeBron James’ oft-discussed “Rise” commercial in fine fashion. Of course, if you didn’t see the first part of the “Coon and Friends” episode, some of the jokes might be lost on you. Nevertheless, they nailed it.

The South Park guys gave us a note-perfect recreation that featured BP executives, Mysterion, Cartman and Captain Hindsight, who’s power is just what you’d think it would be.

If this were an Internet message board, I’d have to give South Park’s “Rise” parody a +1.

That’s One Way To Interpret the NFL’s New Ruling

This is how Chris Kluwe, punter for the Minnesota Vikings, interpreted the NFL’s edict about hits to the head and hitting defenseless players. In order to clarify, the NFL sent a video around of what is and what isn’t acceptable, and apparently, the NFL doesn’t care enough about kickers enough for Kluwe’s liking — or, well, the person who drew the diagram for him.

Dancing In The New Season

Terrence Jones

Normally, dancing, at least, in relation to college basketball, is saved the for end of the college basketball season, but with schools officially starting their season — well, practice anyway — last Friday, it’s quite apparent dancing is the thing at the start of the season, too. Whether it was Bill Self and his squad acting out various pop groups, or Kentucky’s women’s basketball coach showing everyone how to “Dougie,” it’s clear just about everyone in college basketball had dance fever to open the season.

First off, Bill Self and his awesome sense of self-deprecation:

And then there was Matt Mitchell showing the world the right way to “Dougie”

Speaking of the “Dougie,” Texas A&M’s president got in on the fun, as well:

Just out of curiosity, but does anyone know why the basketball event was held on A&M’s football field? I know football is king in Texas, but man, the Aggies have a pretty decent basketball program, so why not keep in their facility?

As for the dancing, UNC got down as well. Bonus: It was with their dance team, too; so you know the players just loved it:

Of course, Kentucky’s ball players got in on the dancing fun, something they said they’d do, and if the fan reaction was any indication, the dances were a hit:

Jones wasn’t the only Wildcat who danced in the new season, either. Keep an eye out for Josh Harrellson doing “The Carlton” (around the 4:00 mark going forward) and Doron Lamb come through like he promised he would (5:24 mark).

And that, folks, is how college basketball returned to your life: It danced its way back.

Bill Stewart is Still King of the Game Faces

Bill Stewart

While his West Virginia Mountaineers gave Bill Stewart a win over South Florida, 20-6. No, I’m not exactly sure what cause Stewart’s face to sour like that; perhaps it was the lack of offensive firepower, or maybe he didn’t like the yellow uniforms. Whatever the case, one thing’s for certain: Bill Stewart is an absolute master of the game face.

There is none higher.
