Up to this point none of the final four participants, save for the frosted one, have been challenged in their quest. Not anymore. Now, we really have a decision to make. I’ve been going back and forth myself trying to decide who I’ll vote for, but to no avail. Despite Christian Laettner’s looming presence, Noah is my pick for this whole thing. Or at least he was, until I really considered that there may have been no person more consistently a-holeish about Kentucky basketball than Billy Packer. Then again, Noah did take a swipe at one of our cheerleaders. Packer will always have Wojo. Noah will always have two titles. Packer may be a racist, but Noah may be from a different race of beings altogether. There are so many questions that need answering. Is Packer always this much of a prick? Is Noah always this ugly or does he put some kind of effort into it? Did I mention Wojo? Do you remember the chomp and the chest pound? Packer still thinks Wayne Turner carried it every time, but I can still see Noah doing that little finger wave when he scored and got fouled. Every. Single. Time. This may be too difficult, after all.
So which will it be? The lead jerk for what seemed like two centuries of broadcasting, or the lead jerk from a team that absolutely owned us and loved every minute of it for two seasons. It almost has to be Noah. Except, now you’re going to go watch the Wojo clip again. I’m still voting for the girl from Florida, but it I don’t feel all the way right about it. Who will you pick to compete for the mantle of Player Hater’s Ball Champion?
Vote northeast and comment south.
