Keeping the Sabbath Holy: Two Come to Mind

In a constant effort to keep up the ever increasing demands of BearMeat's ombudsman, I'm unveiling a new weekly feature, "Keeping the Sabbath Holy". This feature will look back at the preceding week and highlight individuals whose lack of effort best exemplifies the biblical dictate of not working of the Sabbath. At the end of the year we will pick an overall winner. I'm still formulating the rules of nomination, but I do not believe injured players should be nominated. That leaves Aaron Bruce out of the mix, at least this week. I also will not include someone who did not play because of a coach's decision. That gets Jari " Finnegan's Wake" Vanttaja off the hook. I'm going to have to think about this one, oh wait, no I won't. I've got two.

Drew recently purchased two XXL shirts for undisclosed reasons.

I think we have to start with the men's basketball team. We have a center combo meal, 500 pounds of meat, absent the shake and fries, Josh "the Slumlord" Lomers and Mamadou "Polyglot" Diene. Let's review a few of the stats. Both of these seven footers fouled out playing combined 34 minutes on Saturday against UT. In their 34 minutes they managed to get seven points, 7 rebounds,1 assist, 1 blocked shot, and 10 personal fouls. Them fouling out also created the situation in which poor Mark Shepherd, who played only two minutes, was on the court as the game ended and had to hoist up a desperation shot to win the game. Slumlord and Polyglot we appreciate your efforts and thank you for keeping the Sabbath holy.

  • That would be Mark Shepherd, not Matt.

  • Thanks. That was quite inadvertent. Matt Shepherd was involved in a real tragedy; Mark’s team is much closer to comedy.
