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.

Today’s halfdog award nominee-Trevor Ariza

15 12 2009

Today’s halfdog nominee is Trevor Ariza.  On Sunday, Ariza attempted to elbow DeMar DeRozan in the back of the head.  Ariza fortunatly didn’t connect with DeRozan’s head, but was ejected from the game.  Yesterday Ariza was suspended from tonight’s game against Detroit.  Ariza’s act of stupidness, will land him today’s halfdog award nominee.

Voting Friday night thru Monday morning. Awards handed out on Mondays
