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.

Halfdog of the Day – Sal Alosi

15 12 2010

Sal Alosi, strength and conditioning coach for the New York Jets, has won today’s Halfdog Award in a landslide.  As you can see in the video above, Alosi stupidly tripped a Miami Dolphin player while running by on a kickoff coverage.  The Jets initially suspended Alosi for the remainder of the season, but today changed that suspension to indefinitely.  I hope someone would trip Alosi on his way to the podium to accept his Halfdog Award.

Today’s halfdog – Rex Ryan

1 02 2010

Rex Ryan is a perfect candidate for today’s halfdog award.  Ryan, who never shys away from offcolor topics, flipped off a bunch of fans at an MMA fight in Miami.  Ryan, who apologized yesterday, originally was booed when he was shown on the big screen, which lead to the middle finger gesture.  To make it even better, Ryan said with a grin, “I’d like to thank everybody here in Miami. I know they love me, I want to just tell everybody in Miami, hey, we’re coming to beat you twice next year.”  Any form of this behavior from a NFL head coach is clearly worthy of today’s halfdog award.

Today’s halfdog award nominee-Lebron James

29 01 2010

Now we know that Lebron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers will rarely qualify for a halfdog nomination, so when he does, we have to jump on it.   Lebron was fined 25k yesterday for simply kicking a water bottle.  Apparently the water bottle hit a fan, hence the fine.  Even though the money doesn’t matter to Lebron, it seems like it’s a pretty steep fine for the action.   For once, we were all witness to Lebron being, well, a little less than superhuman.

Today’s halfdog award nominee-Mark Madsen

28 01 2010

For today’s halfdog nomination, we are giving tribute to Mark Madsen, the former NBA player.  Today Madsen turned 34 years of age, and basically is a lifetime halfdog.  Madsen has airballed consecutive free throws, had “Twilight” like pale skin, and of course graced the country with this horrible dance.   Madsen, happy birthday, and happy halfdog nomination.

Today’s halfdog award nominee-SEC

27 01 2010

Sadly enough, the students at South Carolina cost their school a fine of 25,000 dollars.  Why, do you ask? Because they celebrated on the court after watching their men’s basketball team beat the number one ranked Kentucky Wildcats.  Not only was it the school’s first victory over a top ranked team (68-62),  but arguable, the biggest win of school history.  So how does the SEC respond to this big win?  By fining the students and school for being excited.  The SEC conference earns our nomination today for our halfdog.
