Game Face: LIU-Brooklyn Blackbirds Edition

This not-so-special holiday edition of Game Faces is so hard to type because my fingers are too fat from yesterday’s feast-fest, but I am trudging through. LUI-Brooklyn visits Rupp tonight for a little post-turkey fun and games. The contest starts at 7pm, but who knows if you’ll be able to roll yourself out of the house and down to Broadway by then. That’s a lot to ask. Who are we kidding — we’re UK fans. You’ll be there. Let’s check out the Blackbirds:

LIU’s C.J. Garner makes his inaugural appearance in Rupp Arena tonight while bearing a stronge resemblance to Jay Pharaoh as Barack Obama. Let the political fight begin in the comments section.

Remember that show Malcolm and Eddie? Did anyone else used to confuse Malcolm Jamal-Warner for Laura Winslow’s older brother? Anyways, D.J. Griggs doesn’t have the same golden smile as Eddie Griffin, but the ‘chops and billy goat will suffice.

While Earl Clark came in a close second, Gerrell Mitchell may or  may not be related to Kel Mitchell of Keenan and Kel fame. Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger.

If Blackbird Troy Joseph packed on about 300 pounds and invested some of his university stipend in a grill, he could pass as a young teflon don former corrections officer Ricky ‘Rozay’ Ross.

If G Baby hadn’t been shot in front of that project apartment complex in Chicago in Hardball (SPOILER ALERT), Keanue Reeeves may not have kicked his gambling habit. And the kid would’ve gone onto play college ball in Brooklyn under the name Brandon Thompson.

LIU’s head coach Jack Perri looks like…ok, not like this guy, who happens to be the drummer (Shane Cody) in the band I manage. Shameless self-promotion: Houndmouth plays Busters tonight, go check them out after the game!

    Great post Rix. Top notch wit. It’s amazing you don’t get blocked.

    Oh wait, I’m sure you’re on Fatts staff. Cause a regular poster wouldn’t say something so un-entertaining and clever-less. Nice work my man!!!

    Hey Chris,I’ll be working at the Houndmouth show tomorrow night in Louisville. We’re expecting a great crowd. If I’m not mistaken, last time they were there they opened for Heartless Bastards. I DO remember they killed it. Glad to see them headlining

    ESPN said that Ryan Harrow left the program, and were talking about him in the past tense. “‘was’ UK’s point guard” etc. I’m not trolling, just passing on info.

    I don’t know who finds your picture matches, but they are not only humorous, but astonishing accurate sometimes…and a good laugh. Thx.
