Well If You're Going To Get Ejected, You Mind As Well Get A Nut Shot In

Thursday, December 04, 2008

Was checking out the USC-Oklahoma game earlier tonight (mainly to scout the Wizards' first round selection next year, Blake Griffin), and I caught this amazing incident between Griffin and USC's Leonard Washington.

At first glance it appeared as if Griffin was putting on a show with a WWE-like dive, but it wasn't until you saw his reaction and the subsequent replays, that I really understood what went down. Make sure you wait until the last angle at the 1:30 mark...

Nut shot! Very Chyna-esque by Washington there. He did get ejected, and after watching the previous play again, I can't really figure out what Griffin did to warrant such an act. Oklahoma went on to win by one at home as well.


While hilarious, I still can't figure out why Washington would be so stupid to intentinally punch Griffin in the nuts.

I was sort of hoping that Bob and Fran would try to describe the actual punch more. It's always funny to hear announcers dance around nut shots.

Lenny, we're all upset that Oklahoma passed Texas to go to the Big XII Title game but isn't there someone else you could punch in the nuts? The Big XII Commissioner?

AA, you have got to get the Reggie Miller comment about Lance Bass from the SA-DEN game tonight.

It was at 1:55 of the 2nd quarter and EJ was throwing it back to the announcers and call Reggie and Fratello N'Sync. Reggie said "I am Justin Timberlake if we are N'Sync, because I'm the successful one, who are you? Lance Bass?"

Then the halftime hilarity of the Kenny Smith comment about T.O.'s body ensued ... great night on TNT.

at about 0:07, you can see Griffin kind of shove Washington a little under the basket after the shot is made. Of course, no one deserves a nut shot.

Clearly, Washington comes from to the Chris Paul school of defending.

How did Bob totally miss it live. I realize it was away from the ball and Bob was clearly watching the ball and not the monitor but we saw it live on TV.

Leonard Washington? Wasn't that Dave Chapelle's character name in the World Series of Dice sketch? Ashy Larry, bitches.

typical black man goes ape-shit when a little white man barely touches him and has to retaliate to keep his street cred. THUG!!

It's like Jim Rome said when Reggie Evans grabbed Kevin Garnett in the package in the 2004 playoffs: for Washington that sure was an expensive date. I'm not trying to be crude here, but Washington didn't get equal value (bang for the buck).

Griffin isn't really a little white man. He's not really a white man either.

An inaccurate, racist statement made anonymously on this blog? Impossible!

yea.. Blake isn't white.

anyway it got Chris Paul to stardom and Julius Hodge is probably in Europe now. Mr Washington wants the same result.. not likely young fella

Ummm, JFein...Anon 11:30 made the original statement, not sophia's bush (who's a pretty good commenter in his rare appearances here). It's an honest mistake.

@ RJBO: Wow...my bad. I saw the comment, scrolled down read the rest of the conversation and scrolled up to see who said it and I must have stopped too soon. Thanks for pointing out my mistake. Fixing it now...

My apologies to Sophia's Bush.

Anon @ 11:30 AM, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Aston Villa rode their luck at Hull City where an 88-minute own goal from Kamil Zayatte saw them leapfrog three points clear of Arsenal and into fourth place in the Premier League wow gold with a 1-0 win.

Villa had to survive Hull penalty appeals for a handball against Ashley Young in time added on, television replays showing that referee Steve Bennett wow gold correctly rejected the claims after consulting a linesman.

Bennett had been involved in controversy after just five minutes when American goalkeeper Brad Friedel looked to have handed Hull the initiative and threaten Villa's return to the Champions League qualifying wow gold zone.

Friedel spilled wow gold the ball under pressure from Nick Barmby and stand-in right-back Nigel Reo-Coker turned it into his own net as he attempted to wow gold clear.

But Bennett cut short wow gold celebrations at the KC Stadium -- and let Friedel off the hook -- when he ruled out the score for an apparent infringement by Barmby.

Zayatte's intervention from a Young cross bound for wow gold Gabriel Agbonlahor then saw Villa leapfrog Arsenal and draw level with Manchester United on 38 points -- seven adrift of leaders Liverpool and four wow gold behind Chelsea.

Stung by an on-pitch dressing down wow gold by manager Phil Brown at Manchester City last week, Hull showed five changes and a vastly improved performance.

Promoted Hull were looking for only their second win in 11 games while wow gold Villa arrived unbeaten in seven and it looked to be heading for a goalless draw when the home side suffered a cruel late blow.
