Steve doing his “go crazy” trick for his dinner.
Steve as a puppy. The first time he met a basketball. He has been in love since.
A come from behind victory from the Grizzlies on Friday, winning 95-83, forces a game 7 back in Oklahoma City.
In a must win game for the Memphis Grizzlies, being down 3-2 in the series, Zach Randolph showed up big in the fourth quarter. Where he had 12 of his 30 points and took down 6 of his 13 rebounds. Randolph and Marc Gasol had struggled the previous two games in what many believe to be a superior front court to the Thunder.
Randolph had every aspect of his game flowing in game 6. His footwork was flawless at times and his 18 footer was on point. The Grizzlies are going to need this type of effort in game 7, including a big game from Gasol.
Considering, Durant finished with only 11 points, his career playoff low, and went 3-14 shooting. He was unable to make shots and was way too passive on the offensive end, settling for jump shots. The two time league leader in scoring needs to demand the ball and create his own offense, while opening up play for others like: Perkins,and Ibaka who combined for just 14 points in game 6.
The Grizzlies will need to dominate the front court and keep Westbrook out of transition and into a half court, jump shooting game.
The Thunder will need a big bounce back game from Durant, good interior defense, and limit their amount of turnovers (16 TO’s in game 6).
Game 7: Sunday 3:30 on ABC
My Uncle Hugh showed me this video. It’s hilarious.
Everyday, I wake up to a beautiful smelly beast named Steve. Steve is no ordinary dog, nor does he have an ordinary tail (that thing is terrible, but I will talk about that later). Steve is an English Bulldog. If you are not familiar with English Bulldogs, there are
a few things you should know.
1. The are lazy as hell
2. They snore and have terrible gas (at least Steve does)
3. They obsess (and I mean obsess) over random things like basketballs or skate boards.
4. They love to be around people and are great companions.
Steve was born on June 20, 2010, so he is approaching his first birthday. Steve weighs a little over 50 lbs. and is still growing.
How popular is Steve you ask? Steve has 185 friends and counting on Facebook, probably a lot more than your dog. Steve was also featured in a sorority composite for Delta Zeta! Friend him on Facebook, BigSteve Dibert.
So why is Steve so damn cool? Steve will sleep-in until the afternoon if he is given the opportunity. His sleep apnea and obnoxious snoring, for which he has no remorse, may wake up him up occasionally, but has no trouble getting back to what he loves most, sleep. Steve’s brain power is actually quite remarkable. Bulldogs, normally known for being… well.. dumb. However,
Steve knows a basket full of tricks:
Shake- only with right hand like a gentleman
Dance- spins around in a circle
Wave Hello- with left hand, he waves hello when you wave to him.
Guard- sits between your legs facing outward
Bojangles- barks on command
Bang- pretends to play dead after getting shot(bang)
Go Crazy- jumps up and down and shakes his head simultaneously before he is allowed to eat.
Skateboards- rides a skateboard (He is obsessed with skateboards. His $9 board broke, so I need to reinvest in a decent one. Like most bulldogs he likes to attack it, but once he gets that thing going he loves to ride it)
The Tail. Bulldogs are not blessed with the most normal looking tails in the world. In fact, I met a bulldog once that had the tail removed because it began growing in the wrong direction. Yes, it began growing in the wrong direction. Imagine eating a few crackers minding your own business and BAM! You look down with that brown cyclops staring right at you.
Luckily, Steve does not have that problem. Unfortunately, Steve’s tail is a little snug to his butt. If for whatever reason, you might need to find a little smear of dog poop.. go underneath Steve’s tail. You may occasionally even be lucky enough to have a nugget fall right out!
Since we are already talking about dog poop, I might as well keep going right? If you have ever seen a bulldog, their body is not really made to squat or contort. Steve likes to do what I call the 360 turd. He spins around in just about a complete circle, as he is getting rid of breakfast and a little bit of dinner, I suppose. (Be sure to not startle him while going, this creates a serious under-tail issue.)
As he completes his duty (yes, duty), I believe he loses track of where his turd lies. AND this is when time freezes as I watch him take that half stumble backwards. SQUASH, SPLAT, SMOOSH… now we have turds all over Steve’s foot… Have you ever seen a dog kick the grass after they go to the bathroom? Yes, that is what he does next to make matters worse. The next twenty minutes of my day are spent trying to clean Steve’s foot or feet.
If you are thinking of getting a dog, you should consider a bulldog. Although, the occasional tail issues and health concerns, a bulldog is a sure way to make you smile every day.
Steve is the man.
First, my name is Christian Dibert. Second, I have a bulldog named Steve.
I prefer to be called how it is spelt and sounds – “Chris-Chin Die-Bert”.. For whatever reason, EVERYONE wants to add a damn L in there. It’s DIBERT not DiLbert
I am probably smarter than most people because I graduated from the most
grungy prestigious school of Radford University. The arm pit of America and drinking capital of the world.
I am an active sports fan, who is not ignorant to the fact that my team might suck.. cough.. Redskins & Wizards. I mean damnnn.. they have been bad. Come on.
I am 22 years old and can’t stand watching the WNBA!
