If I were to emulate this pose, I would lie beneath posters of Kobe Bryant (yes, still my favorite NBA player), Barack Obama (of course!), and an image of me delivering a soccer kick to a toaster. (My pan was swallowed by one this morning!).
Notes From Our Match: First, I scored 13 in our victory in Indiana. But while it was a wellspring of encouragements, it was not as great as the vision of Greg Oden taking to the court again. With Greg rejoining us, I receive glimpses of our future excellence.

Is this juvenil? Sí. It it an effective styling? As it worked twice for me tonight against the dreaded Jeff Foster, I must say “¡Sí!”
