The Canadian Football League. Three downs, bigger fields, and suckier touchdown celebrations.
Seriously. Duck duck goose. That’s not an illusion or a commercial or something. That’s a professional athlete celebrating a touchdown by gathering his teammates for a mock-up childhood game that they planned sometime before the game. This is why no one respects you, Canada.

Jason Kidd's bitter breakup with Byron Scott in New Jersey has been well chronicled. Jerry Stackhouse isn't a fan of the Hornets' coach, either.
Stack, whose refreshing honesty I'm familiar with firsthand, made his feelings about Scott clear in an appearance on Live 105.3's Above the Rim with Brady Tinker.
"I don't think Byron Scott is the best coach or I don't think he's the best guy to deal with -- you know what I'm sayin? -- from some things that I've heard from other players and just some dealings that I had with him earlier in the season. I was about ready to kick his ass -- you know what I'm sayin? He was sitting on the sideline and we just got into a little conversation or something and he was going to tell me, you know, 'Talk to me when you get a ring.' I was like, I told that fool, 'If I played with Magic and Worthy and Kareem I'd have a ring, too'. So, you know, he's a sucker in my book, but that's a whole other story."
It's a whole other story, as well, that Scott is owning the Mavs at this point.

Sorry this is not the english broadcast... that is where the quote is from... I dislike Man. United, but they look unbelievable right now...
Thursday, March 27, 2008
This was on YouTube called "HILARIOUS! Dirk Nowitzki, the play-by-play announcer!"
What is also HILARIOUS! is that the Mavs haven't beat any team over 500 since acquiring Jason Kidd and that tonite they are nine point underdogs against the Denver Nuggets... and probably won't make the playoffs... now that is HILARIOUS!

Phoenix Suns General Manager Steve Kerr said Brent Barry told him Thursday tonight that he has chosen to re-sign with the San Antonio Spurs over Phoenix. Barry cleared waivers Tuesday after being traded by San Antonio last week to the Seattle SuperSonics, which released him Friday to set off a week of recruiting.
Barry will not be able to sign a deal with San Antonio until March 21 because NBA rules prohibit a player from re-signing with a team that traded him until 30 days after the deal was made.
"I spoke with Brent and he informed me he was going to stay in San Antonio," Kerr said. "He said that it was a tough decision but he's going to stay."

PHOENIX (TICKER) —Free agent swingman Brent Barry won’t be going anywhere after all, according to a published report in the Arizona Republic on Thursday.
Barry, 36, reportedly informed Phoenix Suns general manager Steve Kerr that he chose the San Antonio Spurs over the Suns, Boston Celtics, Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets.
A career 41 percent 3-point shooter who helped the Spurs win NBA titles in two of his four seasons with the team, Barry was traded by San Antonio to the Seattle SuperSonics along with center Francisco Elson as part of the Kurt Thomas trade on February 20. He was waived by the Sonics last Thursday.
“I spoke with Brent and he informed me he was going to stay in San Antonio,” Kerr told the Republic. “He said that it was a tough decision, but he’s going to stay.”
According to the paper, Barry will not be able to sign a deal with San Antonio until March 21 because NBA rules prohibit a player from re-signing with a team that traded him until 30 days after the deal was made.
Barry, nicknamed “Bones” for his 6-foot-7, 210-pound frame, is averaging 7.3 points and 1.9 rebounds for San Antonio this season. In 13 seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat, Chicago Bulls, Sonics and Spurs, he is averaging 9.7 points and 3.1 boards.

SAN ANTONIO (TICKER) —Kurt Thomas was dealt to the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night, becoming the latest big man to head to a Western Conference contender via trade.
The Spurs acquired Thomas from the Seattle SuperSonics for guard Brent Barry, center Francisco Elson and a 2009 first-round pick.
The 6-foot-9 Thomas, in his 13th NBA season, gives the defending NBA champions much-needed size to complement Tim Duncan. In 42 games with the SuperSonics, the former Texas Christian star averaged 7.5 points and 8.8 rebounds.
Yahoo! Sports reported earlier Wednesday that San Antonio dropped under the luxury-tax threshold after the deal, possibly saving it about $2 million. In exchange, the report said the Spurs will send the SuperSonics a portion of the savings.
“Kurt Thomas is a tough, physical player who can defend, score and rebound,” said Spurs general manager R.C. Buford, who negotiated the deal with his former assistant, Sonics GM Sam Presti. “We feel he will be a great addition to our roster and will add depth to our frontcourt.”
“I think the landscape of the West has put a premium on interior defense,” Buford said. “Now with the trades of recent days, that’s only improved.”
Presti seemed happy about his dealings with his former club.
“We feel very good about the trade that brings us the Spurs’ 2009 first-round draft pick, Francisco Elson and Brent Barry,” he said. “In particular, looking at the first-round pick, in combination with our other future picks, we have great flexibility to add to our core or acquire another impact player in the future.
“At the same time, Kurt is a tremendous person and player, and I appreciate his contributions this season and wish him success.”
Basically... my opinion is that Kurt Thomas is a p.i.m.p. First, he went to TCU... meaning he is already cool. Second, I don't know if anyone remembers last year's Western conference semis... Spurs vs. Suns. After Amare and maybe Nash in that series Kurt was the Suns MVP for sure. He basically shut down Tim Duncan and I don't ever remember him missing a 8-14 foot jump shoot.
The Spurs needed this move. I hate to see Brent Barry go, but with the potential Western conference playoff match-ups of Spurs-Suns, or Lakers we need another great defensive low-post presence. And the 7.5 point average doesn't hurt either. Now that we got Timmy and Kurt to match-up with Shaq/Amare and Gasol/Bynum, we are looking to make another deep playoff run for sure. I mean, when considering the Mavs, after trading Diop, how are than going to match-up with these front court tandems of the West.
I'll end in saying this about the playoffs in the West... that have already started.
Also... hope to see the Supersonics cut Brent "Burnt" Barry and him resign with the Spurs in 30 days, chuuuch!
This is exactly what I've been saying... Mavs sign Jason Kidd and get rid of Devin Harris... Spurs fans rejoice.
Viewed through the prism of the San Antonio Spurs-Dallas Mavericks rivalry, in acquiring Jason Kidd, Dallas essentially parted with two players who have been perennial thorns in the Spurs' side — Devin Harris and DeSagana Diop.
And Spurs guard Tony Parker likes the move. Said Parker: "To be honest with you, I'm really happy for that trade. Diop was doing a good job on us. And Devin Harris, most of the time, he played good against us. So I thought it would be good for us. No disrespect to Jason Kidd, he's a great point guard, but those guys that left always gave us trouble."
...and this is why he is still one of the best strikers in the world...
This was easily the best goal of this past week's UEFA Champion's League knockout round of 16... here are all the scores of the first leg...
Schalke - Porto 1-0
Roma - Real Madrid 2-1
Olympiacos - Chelsea 0-0
Liverpool - Internazionale 2-0
Celtic - Barcelona 2-3
Lyon - Man. United 1-1
Fenerbahçe - Sevilla 3-2
Arsenal - Milan 0-0
Even though both teams drew I'm still rooting for those two London clubs
Wednesday, February 20, 2008
I just got an email from a true Spurs fan...
I ran across this quote, pretty much everything we have been saying, yet no one in the media has the balls to say the moves are made to counter Timmy and the Spurs. Surprising it came from Tim's arch nemesis:
"People in the West are getting stronger because of the Spurs,'' Kevin Garnett told USA Today. "The Spurs are the best team in the league. You don't have to go by records; they're the champions. Phoenix made their move because of the Spurs. I think the Lakers made their moves because of the Spurs.''
The link is here:
I still don't understand the fact that no one has mentioned this yet, and if they have, why they didn't make a bigger deal out of it. The Suns, God rest their souls, went for Shaq to take on Timmeh, but now that allows Bruce to spend all his time on Nash, and Tony can play on Bell and since all he does is shoot 3's, our defensive game just got easier!
I mean, this deal still looks retarded to me. The Mavs deal, still don't know why they would go for this. People are saying that they weren't going to win this year with this crew, but I have to disagree. Even though I hate the team, they still had the nucleus of 3 years that knew how to win, despite the losses in the playoffs and the subsequent challenge of their mental capacity (which I think is way overblown), this was a good team that had just as much chance to win as any of the other teams, especially when it comes to playing us. The Lakers however scare me, not sure how that is going to work out for us, gotta wait until our first game with them. Anyway, peace biotch.
From the great poundingtherock.com... great stuff
Manu Ginobili (The Sickness, Opus, etc.) Grade: AA++++
What can be said that has not already been said? How about this? The man's play has given me an erection three different times this season. And one of those times I was wearing my Pope-blessed erection proof Chastity Chaps!
Tim Duncan (The Cornerstone, Timmeh!, etc.) Grade: B+
He's coming along after a lazyish start. Hasn't been hurt all that much.
Tony Parker (The Wee Frenchman, Frenchie McWonderbutt, etc.) Grade: B
He was pretty freaking awesome before he hobbled his ankle. And that shit with him doing Grease with Eva was funny as all hecky-shucks-darn.
Matt Bonner (The Gingerhead Man) Grade: B
Maybe it's been my imagination, but I swear he hasn't sucked. I swear. However, if you consider how little playing time he's gotten, and who Pop's playing in his place, well, he must of sucked the suckiest donkey balls ever sucked.
Pop (Coach Wino) Grade: D-
The only thing saving him from an F is the fact he hasn't physically injured Manu yet.
Robert Horry (Ear Muffs, etc.) Grade: G
Horry's proving it's ok if you suck balls as long as it's the coach's balls your sucking. Sorry. That was gross. Just picture that. Eww.
Michael Finley (Conspicuously Devoid of a Nickname as Far as I Can Remember) Grade: C
He tries hard all the time. His multi-directional fadeaways give me the runs.
Jacque Vaughn () Grade: D
During the RRT I nearly threw my effing shoe at my tv because that horrible color commentator kept going on and on about how well he'd been playing. He sucked balls. Check his stats. They were awful. He just shot the ball a lot out of sheer embarrassment. If Tony Parker played that way he'd be tarred, feathered and shipped out of town.
Fabricio Oberto () Grade: B-
Thoroughly uninspiring but sucks way less than Elson.
Bruce Bowen () Grade: B-
Not shooting all that well lately and takes way too many jump shots. Bruce, just because you practiced your running left hander all summer doesn't mean you get to shoot it every time you're open.
I'm out of time. Sorry Brent. Get well soon. Everyone else hasn't mattered. [Edit: Sorry, Ime, you matter, too.]

San Antonio Spurs Tux & Tennies event on February 2nd ... so the Spurs are boring huh?
Monday, February 18, 2008
If the Jason Kidd deal is completed, don't expect the San Antonio Spurs to lose belief in their ability to compete with the Dallas Mavericks in a seven-game playoff series. Dallas presented them more matchup problems than any Western team, and one of the toughest was presented by the super-quick point guard Devin Harris, a tough cover for Tony Parker.
Kidd never has been able to blow by Parker, even five years ago. Soon, he will be 35.
Further, DeSegana Diop had some success defending Tim Duncan. The Mavericks like Brandon Bass, but he does not have Diop's length. If the deal goes down, Dallas will miss his defensive intensity.

"I hate the all-star game. I'm glad only Tim is going. I don't care if Manu gets the recognition he deserves or not. The all-star game isn't his kind of game. Nobody gives a shit. It's like watching a Nuggets game."
So, so true.
"Manu Ginobili's a bad boy," Cavs coach Mike Brown said.
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Manu Ginobili is planning a trip to Las Vegas during this weekend's NBA All-Star break. Alert the roulette wheels, blackjack tables and pit bosses.
Watch out. This guy's on a serious roll.
Ginobili made a career-high eight 3-pointers and scored a season-high 46 points as the San Antonio Spurs, back on the floor where they won the NBA title last season, beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 112-105 on Wednesday night.
Knocking down shots from every corner of the floor, Ginobili made 4-of-4 3-pointers and scored 18 points in the fourth quarter to rally the Spurs, who began the final period down by four.
"I'm just happy he's on my team," Tim Duncan said. "He's unbelievable when he gets rolling like that. The funny part is, I've seen him do it before."
Following Ginobili's hot hand, the Spurs went 7-of-8 on 3s and shot a blistering 78 percent (14-of-18) in the final 12 minutes.
After James misfired on a 3, Ginobili drained his fourth 3 of the quarter to make it 103-95 with 3:10 left, a shot that drew gasps from the sellout crowd.
"It was unbelievable," James said. "There's nothing you can do when a guy get hot like that. He shot step-back 3s. He shot pull-up 3s. It was a great performance by Manu."
Ginobili is indeed a "bad boy," and should have been selected for the 2008 NBA All-Star game. Straight ballin'.

Make sure you watch until the end, Jon Stewart goes off.
A recent article posted on Yahoo! Sports by Kenny Smith entitled "Blockbuster trades raise questions" got me thinking a little bit about the 2007-2008 NBA season, the so-called "power shift" in the Western conference, but mostly about how many complete tools there are in the national sports media including Mr. Smith.
Let me just do a short review of Kenny Smith's article and how his nonsensical ideas about the NBA carry over into what the national sports media talking-heads are thinking and saying these days about the power in the NBA.
Smith starts by saying that, "Because of a couple of blockbuster trades, the balance of power in the NBA’s Western Conference has shifted dramatically the past couple of weeks. That’s also raised a few questions that need answering." We'll get to these questions in a moment, but I would like to say that while yes, ONE team has gotten a little better in the west (LA), the balance of power has not changed at all.
I might just be retarded, but it still goes Spurs, Mavs, Suns in the west in any order you want, even though the Suns just got rid of their most versatile player in the NBA in Shawn Marion and won't do anything with Shaq. I'll try to get to this later, but when considering the Spurs and Mavs how many games have Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, and Devin Harris missed this year? Maybe 50 all together. Yet the media has already written them off. Look, I know ya'll media love LA and Boston, but last time I checked the Spurs are still the defending champs and were in this exact same position last year that they are this year and it also looks like Avery Johnson has taken some of Greg Popovich's coaching strategies, which is to turn it on when it counts. The Playoffs.
Now lets get to those questions...
#1. "Can Shaquille O’Neal play in the Phoenix Suns’ high-powered, fast-paced offense?"
You can go click the link to the article if you actually want to read Smith's obviously bias answer, but I think I could tell you what it says without even reading it... here it goes... I bet it was something like... Yes... some kind of Shaq suck up... fast-paced something ... and he finishes with a Kareem and "Showtime Lakers" reference. Yeah that's about it.
First off, you know that Kenny is never going to write anything bad about Shaq because they're friends, so it totally ruins this answer's credibility. Smith actually had Shaq as an NBA All-Star reserve this year (Shaq has probably played 10 games right?)... that explains a lot. Second, are you f*cking kidding me? Talking about Shaq running. What? He has been injured for the last year! Look, all that needs to be said here is that the Suns traded the most under-rated player in the NBA in Shawn Marion. He can guard any position one though five, not to mention had better stats in every category on the Suns except Nash in Assists, which Marion came second. As a Spurs fan, I love this trade. Chuuuch.
Question #2. "Are the Lakers for real?"
Let me guess Smith's answer... Pau Gasol is the best player ever... blah blah... Lakers are going to win the West. Oh... what do you know, I was right on. Someone needs to remind me, but what happens in the playoffs to Pau Gasol... oh yeah, he gets straight owned by anyone who plays him.... NEXT!
Question #3. "Can the San Antonio Spurs and Dallas Mavericks not make substantial changes to their rosters and expect to remain legitimate title contenders?"
Hmmm this one might actually be interesting, lets go see what professor Smith has to say about it... here it is... "No. The Spurs can’t afford to rely on Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili because, even in winning last season’s championship, they weren’t that far ahead of their Western competitors. If Robert Horry doesn’t hip check Nash into the scorer’s table, the Spurs could have been eliminated in the second round."
WHAT! ok ok... I just want to repeat this part for you again.... "The Spurs can’t afford to rely on Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili".... ummm, hmmm... again... "The Spurs can’t afford to rely on Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili" wait, wait, maybe it'll make more sense to me the third time... "The Spurs can’t afford to rely on Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili." Well, you get the picture. And this guy is one of the "top" analysts for the sport. I mean, have you heard him talk? My god... and he seems to forget that YES, THE SPURS CAN RELY ON TIM DUNCAN, TONY PARKER, AND MANU GINOBILI! And you know what happens... they win championships bitch.

8. "I've had enough of it. I want to give these New England Patriots that trophy tonight to shut that bunch up down in Miami up."- Terry Bradshaw
7. "Mark this down in your diary."- Joe Buck on the Giants' twelve men on the field penalty (he actually made me laugh with this one)
6. "He throwed it up there."- Troy Aikman
5. "We may not be the best announcers out there but our truck does that stuff the best."- Joe Buck
4. "Pretend you're going after Tom Brady's girlfriend back there. Whatever helps."- Jimmy Johnson

Nash will be the owner for some women's soccer team and have players such as this short asian women. Nash is visualizing the success of the Women's Professional Soccer league more than a year before it starts. He's becoming an investor and part owner of the new venture.
"I look at my childhood and realize how many athletes I had to look up to," Nash said in a phone interview. "I look at the opportunity to put some of these wonderfully talented athletes who are dedicated and committed and put them in a setting to inspire a whole generation below them."
I don't know if Nash should be getting involved in soccer... he can't really take hit like a man...
Tell me you watched this and didn't smile...

I know it is a little early to get my hopes up about this trade, but as a San Antonio Spurs fan I really hope this happens... I'll tell you why in a sec, but first here it is...
Nets in three-way talks for Kidd
By Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo! Sports
January 30, 2008
The New Jersey Nets are in serious negotiations with the Dallas Mavericks and Portland Trail Blazers about a blockbuster three-way trade that would send Jason Kidd to the Mavericks, league sources said Wednesday afternoon.
In the proposed trade, Dallas and Portland would send the Nets a package that includes the Mavs' Devean George and Jerry Stackhouse and Blazers forwards Travis Outlaw and Channing Frye and guard Jarrett Jack. Mavericks point guard Devin Harris would be sent to Portland. Along with Kidd, the Nets would send reserve forward Malik Allen and center Jamaal Magloire to Dallas.
The Nets would also receive at least one future No. 1 pick and cash. It's expected that New Jersey would work a buyout with Stackhouse and allow him to be a free agent. Other players could be included to balance the exchange of contracts.
So... here is the deal... Obviously, being a Spurs fan I'm focused on what the Mavs would be getting and losing... The Mavs would basically get Jason Kidd and a couple scrubs for Devin Harris, Jerry Stackhouse, and Devean George... Are you serious??
This is so amazing. First off Jason Kidd is a scrub. Can't play defense. Can't shoot. The only thing he does well is pass, rebound, and look like a jew. But then again I wish the Spurs could be beneficiary of his 2-15 and 4-16 nights from the field. Sweet!
Next, the mavs are potentially giving up Stack, George, and Devin Harris. All three play better defense than Kidd and can shoot the ball better. I can understand getting rid of george because he looks like a women, but Stack and Harris? Jerry Stackhouse brings a toughness to the Mavs that no one else does, without him the only player with any balls on the team would be Josh Howard. Lastly, Devin Harris. I wouldn't trade Devin for Kidd straight up. Devin is fastly turning into one of the premier point guards in the NBA. He drives, shoots, plays defense, and works harder than Jason Kidd. Not to mention he is the best flopping actor in the league... which is part of the game now a days, sad but true. I believe he had an NBA best last year in charges taken (in the rear) last year.
So, I say again, this San Antonio Spurs fan can't wait for this trade because I believe it will totally destroy the Mavericks chance for a championship.
Well... good or bad? Damon Stoudamire soming to the Spurs possibly? Well Anything is better than what we are doing right now and that's for sure...
Veteran guard tells Suns he's signing with rival
By Johnny Ludden, Yahoo! Sports
January 30, 2008
Damon Stoudamire has told Phoenix Suns officials he’s planning on signing with the San Antonio Spurs once he clears waivers this week.
Stoudamire’s agent, Aaron Goodwin, confirmed the decision.
Stoudamire, 34, chose the Spurs because they afforded him a better opportunity to play. Tony Parker has been shelved indefinitely because of bone spurs in his left heel and Brent Barry is out at least another two weeks with a calf injury, leaving San Antonio with Manu Ginobili and backup point guard Jacque Vaughn as its only true ballhandlers.
Parker underwent an MRI Wednesday and has a follow-up appointment with doctors on Thursday to see if the pain in his heel has lessened. Team officials expect him to be out at least a week.
I don't know if this is really a situation to be happy about for Spurs fans... but anything that pisses the Suns off is cool with me.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Johan Santana is a contract extension and physical from joining the New York Mets.
Beating out the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, the Mets reached a tentative agreement Tuesday to acquire the two-time Cy Young Award winner, two people familiar with the deal said, speaking on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made.
Minnesota would receive speedy outfielder Carlos Gomez, and pitchers Philip Humber, Deolis Guerra and Kevin Mulvey.
"If it's true, obviously, you're getting arguably the best pitcher in the game," Mets third baseman David Wright said.

The blogs today are going crazy today after Eva Longoria said something about Tony Parker... this is via truehoop and dallasbasketball.com... ohhh it's a surprise that a Dallas basketball blog misconstrued someone's words to make a San Antonio Spur's player look bad.
The actress admits it's tough watching her husband play for the San Antonio Spurs - because she never knows when he's really hurt, and when he's acting. She says, "Sometimes he acts to get the flagrant foul or, to sell the foul more, he'll throw himself on the floor and really play it up more than what it is. "I really don't know what the difference is so I'm like, 'Stop laying on the ground if you're not hurt. Just get up!' He's like, 'Honey, I have to stay on the ground sometimes.'
I don't think she was saying that he he flops, but I think she was just saying that she gets nervous when he goes down because she thinks he might be hurt... oh well all I know is that if Devin Harris of the Dallas Mavericks had a famous wife she couldn't bare to watch all of his great acting
From Yahoo! Sports: Over at the FanHouse, Brett Edwards is a little aghast at the idea of Melvin Ely, a midseason addition for the San Antonio Spurs last season who barely played, getting a championship ring for his "role" on the 2006-07 NBA champs.
Well, I have something that's going to make Brett's stomach truly turn. Sorry, buddy.
24 players who have accrued more championship rings than Elgin Baylor, Bob Lanier, Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing, John Stockton, Kevin Garnett, Charles Barkley, and Xavier McDaniel combined.

It was reveled after the San Diego Chargers loss Sunday to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game by sources close to Philip Rivers that he wasn't quite moving at 100% during the game because he was weighed down by an unusually large and protective chastity belt. Supposedly he most likely decided to wear this due to the fact that he would come into heavy contact with man-lovers such as Junior Seau, Teddy Bruschi, and Rodney "in the pooper" Harrison.

The Story of the "Packer Mobile"
...fake, fake, records records....
Matt Bonner recently took time out to answer questions submitted by Spurs E-News subscribers about what life is like on and off the court for a redheaded NBAer from New Hampshire.... just some of the questions here...
Name: Billy Franklin
Location: El Paso, Texas
Question:: Are you still driving that Pontiac?
Matt Bonner: Yes, and specifically it’s a Grand Prix. It’s still kicking butt out there on the streets of San Antonio. I went with it for the decent gas mileage, affordability and excellent leg room in the driver’s seat. It hasn’t let me down.
Location: Fresno, CA
Question:: How's that championship ring feel? Do you really wear it?
Matt Bonner: It feels good to win the championship. As a role player in the NBA my personal success is mainly based on the team’s success, so the best achievement for me is the team winning a championship. I do not wear it. I’m too afraid I’ll drop it. Maybe when I’m done playing and go to banquets or formal occasions I’ll wear it.
Name: Dallas Dryden
Location: San Antonio
Question:: First, I appreciate you stepping in and carrying the torch while Tim and Tony were out. Here's my question: Who is the biggest prankster on the team?
Matt Bonner: Manu Ginobili and Brent Barry. Manu is more of the physical funny man and Brent’s more with his tongue, but both of them love the practical jokes. Brent has done the annoying beeping machine. I don’t know what you call it. It’s a little thing you stick somewhere and every few minutes it emits a high frequency beep. Because of the high frequency you can’t tell where in the room it is and you can never find it, so it slowly drives you crazy. Manu’s the king of throwing ice bags at you in the shower and that type of thing.
Location: Laredo, Texas
Question: Did you get any hassle about your red hair when you were younger? I dated a boy with red hair in high school (many moons ago) and we were always teased.
Matt Bonner: First off, good for you for dating a boy with red hair! I don’t know what it is, but we definitely tend to be ahead of the pack in most areas. The good thing with me when I was growing up was that I was always bigger than everyone else, so most people weren’t trying to anger me in that regard. There was definitely a little bit of teasing, but us redheads can take it…we’re fiery!
