An endearing new nickname in the ranks of serious basketball is Big Baby. One such is LSU’s 6’9”, 310-pound sophomore Glen Davis, a mighty tough hombre who last night helped power his team to an NCAA tournament victory over top-seed Duke, which probably now thinks of him as Big Brute. Another Big Baby is Los Angeles Lakers’ rookie center Andrew Bynum, a still growing 18 year old who received that moniker from his proud mentor, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. A recent story describes how Baby Bynum went mano-a-mano with Shaquille O’Neal, and lived to talk about it.
One other thing can be said about these two toddlers: Big Babies don’t cry.
Which can’t be said about this year’s coddled NCAA cover-boy players of the years, Duke’s J.J. Redick and Gonzaga’s Adam Morrison. When last seen after their teams went down to defeat last night, each was in tears. In fact, Morrison seemed beside himself. Perhaps he was embarrassed by his unproductive performance down the stretch. Or maybe, as with Redick, the sudden cruel end to a long, hard season (and college career) was a bitter pill to swallow. Still, don’t coaches these days warn their men never to come across as big babies?
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
