Yes Ma'am Or Sir?

Friday, May 23, 2008

RCS caught this at the end of Game Two last night and I'm sorry I missed it as it happened. Listen to how Rip Hamilton ends his interview with Michele Tafoya.....

Calling a woman "sir" is always entertaining, but according to Ball Don't Lie it's actually a trademark Rip response and rather than Yes...Sir, it's "yes'sir". Interesting.

Michele Tafoya HAS to be Rooting For The Celtics Now (Real Clear Sports)
Rip Hamilton is not, in fact, calling Michelle Tafoya 'sir' (Ball Don't Lie)

Maybe he thought she was Peppermint Patty.

Sorry to threadjack, but I'm pretty sure I just heard a self-felatio joke on Sportscenter. It comes late in the show when they are showing Phil Mickelson stretching and one of the Johns says "I'd never leave the house". So true, so true.

Man, do you bloggers know anything about Detroit Basketball??? That's Rip's thing, "Yesssiirrr". He did it at halftime and the end of the game, and has been doing it for years. How many blogs are going to link or make a post about this? Respect the D baby.

Did you even read the post Joe? Come on man.

It's a trademark for him to, no matter who he's talking to, end the conversation with a "yes, sir"???

Detroit fucking sucks and this helps proves their ignorance.

Rip stole that trademark from rapper Pharrell Williams, who worked it into every song he made.

Yeah I read the post, what's your point? You didn't know what he was doing until you saw BDL who had to educate bloggers everywhere today.
Stones in 6.
Wings in 5.

Yea, it's hiphop slang, and Pharrell Williams isn't the one that made it popular, it started out on the Bay and was popularized by E-40 about 5 years ago...
