Schur Shot

Filed under: basketball, big arms, Gil Thorp, Pantheon of Hair — teenchy @ 3:49 pm


That’s “Schur” as in “Schuring” not as in “Diane” (whose last name is spelled “Schuur” and whose vocals are orders of magnitude smoother than this action) and it’s Schuring who’s getting set up for the final shot.

Leonard “Don’t Call Me Vern” Fleming sends a pass past the Tigers’ man-bunned defender to Marcell Irby, who either magically changed jersey numbers from one panel to the next (he’s been #45 every time we’ve seen him this season to date) or was the recipient of a screen from the unnamed #40. Either way the outcome of the game will rest in Chris Schuring’s hands and we’ll hang on this cliff until Monday.

On the odd chance, faithful reader, that you’re not checking this post until the day after I posted it, I’ll leave you this musical tidbit to tie the room together.



  1. Is it too early in the season for charging & a broken leg? It’s almost January!

  3. Teenchy, wasn’t that something Daffy Duck or some other Looney Tunes character hawked when he was a traveling salesman?

    “Hi, I represent the Walla Walla Sure Shine Company out of Walla Walla Washington and I noticed your cliffhanger is a little rusty and has some dandruff. But this Walla Walla Sure Shine Coal Black Formula is sure to shine and even remove a few dandruff flakes. If you’ll let me come in, I can give you a demonstration.”

  4. Oooohhhh… Saturday cliffhanger! My money is on a clean block of Chris to clinch the L and then imminent shenanigans with Teddy DeMarco and his poseur posse.
