Halfdog of the Day – Yao Ming

17 12 2010

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.

Halfdog of the Day – Tarvaris Jackson

16 12 2010

After Brett Favre ended his historical consecutive games started streak at 297, Tarvaris Jackson ended his own at 1.  Jackson finally got a chance to start since the arrival of Favre and promptly ended his season with a turf toe injury and a trip to the season ending injured reserved list.  Sadly enough Jackson, you have to be today’s Halfdog, but just like your starting streak, it won’t last long.
