Tai Wynyrd is a Wood-Chopping Bull-Moose


After two tight games to finish the non-conference season, Tai Wynyrd has seen plenty of practice time in Camp Cal, but has yet to play in a game.  Ole Miss’ personnel might not be the best matchup for Tai, but Calipari brought plenty of personifications to describe how he performed during Camp Cal.

“I’ve been pleasantly surprised,” he said yesterday.  “He’s got good skills around the goal.  He’s got like a good feel, where to get it up, and he’s a good free-throw shooter.”

Most importantly, he is physical around the rim.  “He is a bull.  He’s a moose.”

First, has Tai ever seen a bull or a moose?  I’m no zoologist, but I don’t believe either are native to New Zealand.  Maybe he’s seen Rocky and Bullwinkle, I don’t know.

Second, how can he be both?  It reminds me of the time my basketball team played Clay County on their Senior Night.  During player introductions the coach said, “We call him Ox, because he’s a strong as a mule.”  If he’s as strong as a mule, why didn’t they call him mule?  Can Tai be a bullmoose, or must the terminology be mutually exclusive?

Either way, I like what I’m hearing about the Wood Chopper from Coach Cal.  “He’s been really good, to be honest with you.”  And I honestly hope to see him soon.

    Um, a bull moose is an animal not two animals. Teddy Roosevelt even had the Bull Moose party, so maybe you should take a history course. Just sayin’…

    A male moose is called a bull. FWIW.
