In Defense of Psycho T

Apparently, Tyler Hansbrough's Tar Heel teammates refer to him as "Psycho T" for his primordial screams during weightlifting sessions.
Let me give this post some context: Thel. Monk posted a response to a previous post in which he states that Psycho T will be another Mark Madsen at best. While their levels of goofiness are quite similar and they both have ridiculous nicknames (Psycho T and Mad Dog), their games are quite different.
For one, Pyscho T averaged 18.9 points per contest as a FRESHMAN. Mad Dog averaged 12.2 points per game...as a senior. As a freshman, Mad Dog muscled in 5.9 points per game.
Second,...well, I was going to do more research on Monk's comparison, but then I realized, this is the same guy who, during a certain UK game last season, compared Randolph Morris to Shaquille O'Neal. Randolph Morris is perhaps the 4th best center in the SEC this year (after Big Baby, Corn Rows Davidson, and Joakim Noah). Shaquille O'Neal is arguably the best center to ever play the beautiful game (although I would argue like hell for Hakeem Olajuwon).
But maybe I missed the point of Thel. Monk's response. Randolph Morris averaged 8.8 points per game as a freshman, numbers comparable to a certain Stanford graduate who likes to do the butt dance. So, if by comparing Psycho T to Mad Dog, Thel. Monk was actually comparing Psycho T to Shaq, then I must say: I think you're giving Psycho T a little too much credit.

2 more things:
1) Thel. Monk's Perry Stevenson-Hakim Warrick comparison was right on the money. I'm almost embarrassed I didn't catch it before.
2) I laughed out loud during my Professional Responsibility class when I read Runs with 2 Horses' post. Specifically, I laughed at the point in which Runs makes a comment about tongue kissing Joakim Noah. The Prof was talking about the lawyer's ethical duty to reveal where his client has hidden bodies if he or she has reason to believe that the missing individuals might be alive. Obviously, this was an inappropriate time to laugh. He glanced at me as if to say, "You're a monster." I covered my mouth and dove back into one hell of a post.

Runs with Two Horses post was one of the funniest things I've ever read in my entire life. I made several different classmates read it during Criminal Law. None of us know a thing about larceny because of it. I think it has somethign to do with raping non-living objects, but I'm not totally sure.

The Shaq/Randy Morris comparison has been taken way out of context. But I take full blame for the life it has taken on since it was made. I apologize to everyone.

Psycho T will be a much better college player than Madsen, the comparison was meant for the NBA player he will become. Karl Malone was explosive, we are just used to the 45 extra years he played with a cowboy hat on.

Thelonius Monk,
Larceny does indeed involve raping non-living objects. If I remember correctly, it was 2 years ago to the day that I attended a criminal law lecture on larceny. I believe I spent most of those 50 minutes searching the internet in an attempt to find out why Shawn Bradley stopped wearing #76 after he left the 76ers. Apparently, as disgusting 7 foot 6 inch freak, Shawn felt like a side show as the 7 foot 6 inch 76er sporting the number 76 on his jersey. In fact, Shawn apparently received a good deal of pressure from the 76er front office to wear #76. Anyway, the important thing is you learned what larceny is--the rape of non-living objects.

I'm watching Last of the Mohicans right now and decided to post a comment since I've yet to be added as a contributor.

First off, I knew Natty Bumpo was also referred to as Longrifle and I knew he had a long rifle, but have you actually noticed how Daniel Day-Lewis's rifle is in the movie. It has to be at least 5 feet long. It's incredible.

Secondly, where do they find this many native american's to fill the roles. I thought that there were like 10 Native Americans left in the world. And I'm counting Eduardo Najera and Lou Diamond Phillips.

Third, I want to stand over someone one day, look down at them and say "Grayhair, know that I will put your seeds under my knife so that your name will be extinct." Then cut his heart out and hold it in the air.

Thelonious, you forgot about the Indian that owned the fireworks stand in Joe Dirt. If you don't know who I'm talking about, ask Natty. That's his favorite movie, besides four feathers.
