|"Hey dude, where y'all get them uniforms?|
Thomas Edison once said, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” Ralph Waldo Emerson kept it simple by saying, “Common sense is genius dressed in its working clothes.” The famous sales guru, Zig Ziglar, broke the joint down like this, “You cannot climb the ladder of success dressed in the costume of failure.”
The Southern University Jaguars showed up in Salt Lake City to play the No. 1 seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs looking like “Honey I shrunk the kids!” Everybody at that freaking school should be reprimanded for sending those kids out there looking crazy. They had the No. 1 seed on the ropes bruh and nearly pulled the upset losing 64-58 but the uniforms got in the way!
It was like ole boy in the commercial with the stain on his shirt! He's prepared for the interview but every time he started talking the stain blurted out and interrupted him! That was Southern yesterday bruh! Every time boyz would get into a groove the uniforms would blurt out and say, "Hey look at me bruh! These joints don't fit!"
There is a reason why all successful people will tell you that you’ve got to dress for success. I’ve been saying it since I was 13 years old. “If you look good , you play good!” Deion Sanders took it even further by saying, “If you look good, you play good! If you play good, you get paid good!” And no I didn’t bite off of Prime because we’re the same age! Great minds just think alike playboy!
Well Southern played great but they looked like Big Momma knitted them joints and pushed them out of the door. You know how she wouldn’t let you leave the house without an inspection? Then she would put a whole hand full of Vaseline on your knees and face? That was Southern yesterday playa, except that ole girl was sound asleep when they left the crib.
They probably could have pulled the upset if boyz weren’t thinking about those darn uniforms being too big. I saw a boy put a cuff in his shorts running down the court in transition. The little point guard had a safety pin holding his joints up! One dun had his jersey tucked so deep that he had to put his jock over it. You couldn't even see his number. When he got called for a foul, he got a delay of game penalty because it took him so long to get that joint out of his shorts!
If they had just been able to play basketball yesterday, they would have pulled the upset bruh! Who do we blame for that? The freaking administration for being cheap and shopping off the rack at Leroy's Big & Tall Emporium on Crenshaw! They looked like the Bad News Bears of basketball! One of my boyz said they looked like those joints were made of Cotton! Boyz were dehydrating out there because the material wouldn't breath! I saw a cat on an IV during a 20 second timeout! I guess the duns in Baton Rouge thought that Dry Fit was out of style so they tried to turn boyz on to Wet Loose.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! They were the most conditioned and powerful team in the tournament if they’ve been wearing those joints all season because of the wind resistance alone. Let this be a lesson to everybody! In order to find success, you’ve got to first dress for it. There was no way they were gonna win on that stage looking like a rec league team.
On some real talk, that just reconfirms what I said about dull Gonzaga yesterday. They got the 1 seed by default. They aren’t the real deal and if you didn’t see it yesterday you’re delusional! They almost became the first 1 seed to lose to a 16 seed in the HISTORY of the tournament to some duns playing in some old ABA gear. Southern may as well been rocking some purple Chuck Taylor’s with some knee highs and elbow pads. I swore I saw Dr. J run out of the tunnel but his shorts were too tight so they wouldn't let him play. That’s how crazy they looked! I was waiting for Jesus Shuttlesworth to come off of the bench down the stretch but I guess they couldn't talk him into putting on that foolishness! SMH!!!!!
Holla At Ya Boy!
