Today’s Halfdog award goes to Yao Ming. Ming didn’t win the award today because he is out indefinitely with yet another foot injury, but rather his response to it. When asked about the injury, Ming responded by saying: “I haven’t died,” he said. “Right now I’m drinking a beer and eating fried chicken. What were you expecting, a funeral?” Can anybody picture Yao eating chicken or drinking beer? If you are like me, I can only picture sushi and sake. What an incredible response like that lands Yao Ming our Halfdog award of the day.
