i refuse to even consider this a possibility
"AHHHHHH MY BALLS ARE HUGE AHHHHHHH"
I believe that move was made famous by Pedro Cerrano and the Tanaka twins in Major League 2.
You are not wrong
Channeling Jimmy King.
Sam Cassel popularized it in the NBA, but you're right Hank. It was all Mr. Allstate Goodhands himself.
Hey bartender? Jobu needs a refill.
Means people watched Major League 2. That's unfortunate.
even Back to the Minors had redemptive value ie Ted McGinley
Fished it out of the dollar bin at a Blockbuster bankruptcy sale.
I thought ML2 was funny as hell. The 3rd one was awful though
Gesture by Spike is obviously aimed toward Kate Upton.
Sometime I do that just walking down the street. Dunno why - I just do.
Dakich creepin' behind Stauskus in the first picture.
I love the caption as well: "Michigan guard Nik Stauskas (11) gestures at Spike Albrecht (2)."
Certainly is a "gesture."
athletic supporters. Spike's claims are massive.
Let your nuts hang!
that Spike photo is ridiculous.
When you let your nuts hang
Hey if Sam Cassell can do it.....
Noticed, and am not a fan at all. It is the type of thing we would call classless if state or Osu players were doing it. Hit your shot and act like you've been there before.
Yeah, I just hate seeing the kids have fun while playing basketball.
Gesturing to each other out of happiness. This isn't the throat slash/choke sign/showing-up-your-opponent stuff.
Is it juvenile? Sure. But they're KIDS. so "juvenile" works just fine.
(now get off my lawn)
You've got the issue backwards. The issue is not that the guys are making this gesture, which is hilar, but that we would likely castigate (castrate?) OSU players if they were doing it.
Yeah because that is so like flipping the opposing crowd off.....
Have some fun (assuming they do it after big shots and not just a random three 10 minutes in).
When Bellinelli hit a huge shot when playing for the Bulls last year and did that. Got fined like 60,000 dollars or somethin.
Pitino can only look on in amazement....
I'm putting Pitino the Younger in the same box as Tom Hammond. I'd never let them around my kids.
Caris needs to add some flash to his "Forrest Gump" run next time...
Adding the gif because I'll never get tired of watching it...
Actually, I think Caris does it while on the run at about half court after that shot... Looking for visual evidence now.
EDIT: Visual evidence found:
I noticed Spike doing this yesterday -- it was great to see, but if the NCAA decides to follow the NBA on this, could lead to some big Ts (rather than big Bs). Grantland did a story on this earlier in the year... http://grantland.com/the-triangle/balls-out-in-defense-of-the-sam-cassel...
An outbreak of massive size.
That is amazing. Sam Cassell is having the most fun ever in that full court strut
We've got the biggest balls of them all.
Some balls are held for chairty and some for fancy dress...
I love it, it's funny. But just like how GR3 needs to get off the rim quicker...we've gotta be smart about this.
Look at Teddy Valentine going crazy the other day. All it takes is one ref who wants to be part of the game and the other team is shooting free throws.
We've got to be smart.
Let 'em hang.
Someone more creative than me should get some clips of these guys, string them together, and overlay the AC/DC song.
He also has a classic big balls dance. Let the kids have fun and let them thangs hang.
It was more like Tanaka from Major League 2. As soon as we get beat down the floor on D because we're doing this, ill be pissed.
Thought of Major League.
This would have been great if kept between the team. Now the MSM will get ahold of it and create a controversy about maturity and the kids will have to fabricate a half sincere apology for something that really wasn't a big deal to begin with.
And when that happens, just remember, it was our own damn fault.
This is why we can't have nice things...
I love it though...very few teams seem to have as much fun as Michigan the last few years.
Tuturro is impossible to keep up with, but the Mitch half of this shop really works. Thumbs up.
the old fart refs probably had no idea what the kids were even doing. Now they will know and Belein will probably have to kibosh it.
