Grandma and His Posse Make Mince Meat of Kobe Beef

“Late Rally by Clippers Overshadows Bryant’s 50″
Sam-I-Am-Jen’s-Grandma Cassell and the Clippers overcame a 17 pt. deficit last night against the Fakers, jamming in the 4th quarter to win 118-110. Kobe Beef Boy Bryant scored 50 last night, but his last basket was at the 8:46 mark in the 4th, when the Clippers were still down by 9. Way to fade out and not score when it matters Beef Boy!

At halftime, Grandma Cassell got called out by Charles Barkley, Kenny Johnson, and Reggie Miller for being old. Which pissed Grandma off and fired him up down the stretch, keeping the Clips in the playoff race.

Most shocking, however, was the TNT post-game show, when I learned that Reggie Miller can’t say “Alabama.”

Kenny and especially Chuck, were riding Reggie for his favorite TV show choices, which were The Honeymooners, The Closer (a TNT show coincidentally), and Happy Days.

Here is the transcript of that conversation, almost verbatim (this is not one of our madeup ones, I swear):

Chuck: “Good Times and Sanford and Son are two of the greatest shows of all time.”

Reggie: “I can’t like Happy Days? I don’t know what was going on in Selma, ALBA-BAMA, ALBA-BAMA?”

Chuck: “Which one of those shows is in Alabama?”

Reggie: “Isn’t that where you grew up?”

Chuck: “Good Times, that was in Chicago, wasn’t it?”

Reggie: “Right. I didn’t know what was going on in Selma, ALMA-BAMA. I didn’t know what you were watching in Selma, ALMA-BAMA.”

Reggie, what was going in Selma Albabama Almabama was a little thing called the civil rights movement. No big whoop. It was before your time and mine, which perhaps explains why you like…The Honeymooners? Why don’t you ask big sis Cheryl–if she’s not too busy changing her hair–what Selma was all about, and maybe how to say A-LA-BA-MA. She always did strike me as the smarter Miller.
