Flippin’ Off… (‘Possible Flip-flop Story’ Competition)

7 06 2007

What is it at the moment? What’s going on???

In the last 2 weeks, we had two of the biggest flip-flops occur in the sports-world. First, we had Kobe Bryant with his “Trade-me-wait-no-don’t-trade-me” tirade (does anyone know what he wants at the moment?), then we had Billie Donovan with his “I wannabe an NBA coachwait, no I don’t” (shortest tenure ever as an NBA coach?). How brilliant a flip-flop were both? Both were sheer head-scratching in the stupidity involved. Not to say either Kobe Bryant or Billy Donovan are stupid – both are (from what I hear/read) very intelligent guys – but the acts were (stupid).

So, it got me thinking… what reversals would we want to see? Who could perform an about-face that would rival these two?

Some examples…

Shaq returns to the Lakers… (c’mon, who wouldn’t love to see this? <rolls eyes>) The big guy could come up with a great new nickname for it (The Big Prodigal Son?), and state that he’s glad to be back – wishes he never left, and come up with a new pithy nickname for Kobe after claiming him as his ‘sidekick’. Better than Cain & Abel…

The Rocket changes his mind just prior to his first start. He wants to play in … Boston. Announcement made Friday June 8th (just prior to when he would’ve started for the Yanks) where he’s flown in by helicopter on top of the Green Monster at Fenway…
