As the TGR faithful well know, periodically, when a particular subject (or subjects) encourages the TGR crew to email back-and-forth throughout the day, we’ll post some of the comments from those email messages here on the website. Honestly, there hasn’t been any rich discourse for several months now….until today. Check out today’s chatter about Colin Cowherd, John Wall, Rajon Rondo, and the joy of dancing without any pants:

[First message at 11:39 AM]

“Cowherd is rippin’ John Wall right now!!”

“Yeah he’s pissin’ me off! Talkin’ about Rondo’s 17 dimes with zero TO’s. Wall had 13 & 8 TO’s. Look who he’s passing to. Braggin’ on Rondo’s defense, Wall had 9 steals. He said Rondo’s a better leader, yet all his teammates hate him. Tubby didn’t even like the kid. This is Wall’s 4th game in the league compared to Rondo. It’s ridiculous!!”

“I think that is the same guy who says Joey Votto stinks.”

He does that shit to get a rise out of people. Call him up, Pedigo!”

I can’t stand him.  I stopped listening to him about 2 years ago.  As terrible as it is to say, I would rather listen to Chris Cross’s stupid arse  instead.”

He was hatin’ on Wall for dancin’ b4 the game. He thinks that’s poor leadership. Has he noticed Lebron with his powder b4 the game or his f’in decision show? How about Wade & doin chin-ups puttin his head through the hoop like ‘look at me?’ Even Jordan did shit to draw attention. He obviously didn’t hear Wall after the game sayin’ he had too many TO’s & needed to cut down on them.”

“He was sayin’ some stuff that is crazy with only 4 games played. Talkin’ about Rondo, hell, Cowherd didn’t start liking Rondo until 2 years ago. I mean I’d take Rondo over Wall, too, but give the kid a chance! If you look at Rondo’s first 4 games in the league, I’m sure they were not that impressive either.”

“At this same point in Rondo’s career, he was pounding the ball at the top of the key b4 driving the lane & committing TO after TO while blowing our last good chance at a good team before last year.”

“SO WHAT I AM HEARING IS THAT YOU ALL LIKE RONDO BETTER THAN WALL, OR DO YOU THINK RONDO IS BETTER THAN WALL?”

Wall set the record for assists by a rookie through 3 games last night with 31. I think it is 31.”

“All I’m saying is right now I would take Rondo. We’ll see where Wall is in 6 years but I’m takin’ Rondo today. He is one of the top 3 true PG’s in the NBA right now.”

“Yeah I remember that it was a stat that was pretty impresive. He was also one of only 4-5 in history to have the line he did last night that early in his career. I wanted to email Cowherd & lay down some facts for him, but that’s what he wants. That’s what makes him rich. It’s not like he would read one that would bust his argument anyway. I usually agree with him but not this time. He was actually bustin’ on the Reds more than Votto & he was exactly right. They couldn’t beat any good teams & they proved it.”

I am not a Rondo fan at all, but he is better than Wall right now. Rondo is the perfect NBA point guard.  Wall has a great shot at being great, but you could also see where he could fail.  I tend to think he is driven enough to be a star for a long time and  eventually as good or better at the point than Rondo.”

I think Rondo would have been a lot better at UK if he played under Calipari. Tubby had him going side to side in the weave and not slashing to the bucket in the dribble drive. My two cents but they are both completely different players and played on two completely different teams and systems.”

“WELL IN MY OPINION RONDO IS AN A-HOLE. DID NOT LIKE HIM AT UK. WALL ALMOST HAD A TRIPLE  DOUBLE LAST NIGHT AND I THINK HE WILL BE BETTER THAN RONDO ALL THE WAY ROUND. MAYBE BY NEXT YEAR WE WILL HEAR MORE ABOUT WALL THAN RONDO. AND YOU ARE RIGHT TUBBY DID NOT LIKE RONDO. NEITHER DID MOST OF THE PEOPLE AT UK.”

“That’s because he’s [Rondo] on one of the top 3 teams in the league right now. I would take Wall all day over him. He’s probably gonna show that when they play. Cowherd thinks Rondo is quick? Well we gonna see who’s faster.”

“He’s [Cowherd on Wall] complaining about him dancing before a game? If I was 19, overall number 1 draft pick and worth 50 million, I’d be dancing my arse off too.”

“Amen to that!”

“Yeah, but you would be dancing the jitterbug, not the ‘Dougie!'”

The only thing I would have done differently than Wall last night is that I would have had my pants down around my ankles, and I would have invited Colin Cowherd to come see how my arse tastes!”

If the ego, attitude and locker room problems are true it sounds like Wall and Rondo have more in common than just playing for UK. Hope not, but I’m sure those things get no love from seasoned vets and older players. And on the Rondo tip, who cares if Tubby and no other players liked him. Hell, from what I remember he was the only one who seemed to realize that Tub was holding that team back! #1 recruiting class forced to play the equivalent of the 5 cutter Guy Strong specialty. ‘Slow it down, Slow it down,’ how’d that work out?”

“The big three make Rondo who he is in Boston. If he played for the Pacers he wouldn’t be the same guard.”

“I like turtles.”

“I’d be dancing too while saying, ‘take yo pants off we parrrrtty!!!'”

[Someone provides the link to this video.]

I have decided to go ahead and remove my pants even without Rondo or Wall’s money.”

While you were shedding your pants, I just saw on my lunch break that Rondo has 67 assists through the first 4 games setting a new NBA record. And yes, I know he plays for Boston, but that is sick!!”

“Yes I saw that & yes it is!! Averaging 17 per game is getting it done.”

Picture me doing this dance, with no pants.”

So Rondo is God  to some of you, well I bet everyone of you that feel that way that Wall out does him before it is all over and done. The players did not say anything about Rondo. It’s the people who had to deal with his knowing it all.”

“That guy cannot have any family jewels or he would not be able to ride the rail like that.”

No, Rondo is not God to me. But he is defintely in the top 3 pg’s in the NBA, no question.  And probably the most underutilized player I have ever seen at UK thanks to Tubby. Wall may outdo him in the end and if he does that’s great too. But  do you remember the years he played for UK? I would have had a bad attitude too, we got the # 1 class, an athletic team and the fastest guy on the court (Rondo); yet, we’re walking the ball up the court and slowing down fast breaks. I’m sure 99% of you were yelling at ole Tub just like I was.  So as far as him knowing it all, he may have looked that way to some people  back then, but 6 or 7 years later here we are playing the dribble drive with Cal,  ole Tub is in  cold ass Minnesota recruiting mid-major talent, and Rondo has a Championship ring. Slow Ball = No Ball.  I’m Just sayin…”

“Preach!!”

“CHUUUCH!!!”

“I DID NOT LIKE RONDO WHEN HE PLAYED AT UK, BUT I YELLED FOR HIM BECAUSE HE WORE THE BLUE.  WALL WILL OUT DO HIM.”

In addition for this, the affordability and robust construction can also
be the reasons behind the increasing demand within the market.
You may also lock the controls so no-one, such as your little
children, can operate the dryer without your permission.
I dumped water out from the pump and took it inside, gathering a screw driver, some tweezers and anything I thought could use to clear a clog.
Most soaps recommend that you just don’t pour soap directly on your clothing, but with my previous washer
I always forgot to place the soap in before I started loading the washer.
