Last week, Joakim Noah took down Bruce Pearl, sending the sweaty one back to the studio and Noah on to the Final Four. Here’s the best burn on Noah from the last matchup:
Bobby Boucher was right when he said “Gators are ornery because they have all these teeth and no toothbrush”. Wrong again Colonel Sanders.
Now, to see who will join Noah, Laettner and Packer in the Final Four.
(1) Jerry Tipton – The uber-Debbie Downer, Tipton is a Hall-of-Fame journalist who has made a living getting under Kentucky fans’ skin. He never lets us enjoy anything too much but, through much of this tumultuous past year, Tipton’s tone was more upbeat than I can remember. Could it have been because the collective black cloud hanging over all of our heads looked like a Chamber of Commerce day to Tipton? No one can say for sure. But, as soon as we emerged from the darkness and into the Calipari era, lo and behold Tipton was there to tell us all how nuts we are. Sorry to rain on your parade, Jer. At least with Tipton back to being Negative Nancy, we can rest assured that all is right in the Kentucky universe again, and that I’ll spend more time coming up with alliterative female nicknames for his negativity.
(2) Marc Maggard – We’d like to extend special thanks to the Tips for doing a favor for us all, and personally proving that most of the bad things people say about the way he conducts himself are true.
