    Phillips 66 Free Throw Contest

    Anybody else see that poor dude out there shooting free-throws in between games just now? I was sitting there ripping him in his non-partisan Atlanta Braves jersey and "flavor saver" beard, especially after he said he was a Mizzou fan until they lost to Baylor the other night. Then he dribbles between his legs and misses 4 straight free throws for $16,500. Following his failure, they interview him and give him a check for 10 grand. He was stuttering around in shock trying to thank them, and I was ready to pile on. Then he drops to a knee, pulls out a ring, and asks his girl to marry him in front of everybody, which helped explain it all. I remember how nervous I was before proposing, then you throw in all those fans and trying to think about the chance of making $66,000 on your free throws beforehand and it explains why he sucked it up. Plus he was from Missouri so he was probably trying to think of what their collective grandparents were going to say about their upcoming nuptuals.



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    I too was trying to decide if it was a train wreck or a special/fun moment.

    Hopefully at the wedding reception, his wife-to-be will toast him for his unique proposal yet "kindly" remind him the money he let slip away could've gone toward the wedding/honeymoon/house/shooting lessons.

    It was a train wreck.
