Can't Be Thin-Skinned
You can’t be thin-skinned if you play golf with my group. The following exchange personifies how the dialogue typically runs:
Charlie wasn’t feeling well, I believe he had a sinus infection, so on No. 5, Frank observes: “Charlie, you look like shit.”
Charlie remained silent. Then Frank added: “If anything happens, Bill will give you mouth to mouth. I’ll dial 911.”
Gracious gesture, Frankie.
Loved this tweet from Dirk Nowitzki, after the NBA’s official account wished the Mavericks star a happy 39th birthday:
@swish41 At this point just say happy birthday… Thanks though
Mined this one from the Internet: A football coach walked into the locker room before a game, looked over to his star player and said, “I’m not supposed to let you play since you failed math, but we need you in there. So what I have to do is ask you a math question, and if you get it right, you can play.” The player agreed, and the coach looked into his eyes intently and asks, “Okay, now concentrate… what is two plus two?”
The player thought for a moment and then he answered, “4?”
“Did you say 4?” the coach exclaimed, excited that he got it right.
At that, all the other players on the team began screaming, “Come on coach, give him another chance."
From Fark.com regarding Tigers Woods recent problem: “You would think that Tiger Woods would know when to use a driver.”
SportsPickle.com writes: “Kevin Durant silences all the critics who said he could never help a 73-9 team win.”
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in jest: “Looks like Louisville’s Rick Pitino might be the first basketball coach to have an NCAA title vacated. We had John Calipari in the office pool.”
From Janet Hough of Left-CoastSportsBabe.com, who addressed a Canadian couple that had escaped injury after the hot-air balloon in which he’d proposed to her crashed: “Well, that’s one way of the getting the ‘for worse’ part out of the way early.”
