CJ Leslie just wants to love you

weak-ass-pickup

It wasn’t too long ago that UK fans held out hope that the love that they were showing to John Wall’s high school teammate, CJ Leslie, would be well received and he would finally submit to the display of affection known as a scholarship offer.  Ultimately, Leslie decided that North Carolina State is where he wanted to end up.  But that didn’t mean his that his yearning for love ended with his recruitment.  In fact, those fires still burn strongly.

Deadspin released a poem today written by Leslie for a freshman English course that shows he’s just a man that wants to be loved.  Over and over and over and over….you get the point.

An excerpt:

she was hesitant…

about the lack of time we spent.

she said, “i barely know you,

and

i’m kinda sick”

i said

“calm down

…only as friends

The rest gets a little too hot for KSR, so you’ll have to pop over to Deadspin and check it out.  Just make sure you’re wearing something comfortable and light a few candles first.

    This is out of line.

    One of my degrees at UK was English with a creative writing emphasis, I took plenty of poetry classes, and I even caused a minor controversy with something I published in the JAR (got called into a dean’s office and everything). So I feel pretty comfortable saying this is not cool.

    And this is coming from the guy that said Louisville just had penis envy in the two blogger contests ago.

    Is it wrong that what I find most offensive about the picture at the top of the post is not the lameness of the statement but the incorrect use of your?
    While I am being that grammar guy on the Internet, let’s talk some more about contractions. “Could of” and “would of” are not valid expressions. The correct forms are could’ve and would’ve.

    Does poetry give him “artistic license” for atrocious spelling and grammar? If so – well played CJ, well played. He might not be able to pass English 101, but he’ll nail this class.
