Taking a break from lifting entire cars over his head and breaking Batman’s spine, fan-favorite point guard of the 2011 Sweet 16 team DJ Gay has been named head basketball coach at Chula Vista’s Victory Christian Academy.
As a women’s studies major at SDSU who played professionally in Europe, Coach Gay will be a great mentor for these young men in both their basketball careers and growth as members of society. He may or may not also force feed them Creatine shakes and spend an unreasonable amount of time on deadlifts. He’s a large man, is what I’m getting at.
The good news is Kawhi’s claim to the NBA’s MVP award rose in stock this past week. The bad news is that’s because with his ankle injury keeping him on the sidelines, the Golden State Warriors easily cruised to a 4-0 series sweep of the Spurs.
Silver lining: Now Kawhi has some time freed up to come back to San Diego and be the vocal proponent of SDSU West we need. Yep, daily interviews with Scott Kaplan and glad-handing politicians and SDSU alumni and LOL JK he’d rather die.
Yet another article about our man Pumphrey being little came out this week. It seems like this will be the new “Antonio Gates played basketball” or “Ryan Fitzpatrick went to Hardvard.” Some day I look forward to Super Bowl champion Ryan Lindley getting the same treatment with “He played in the CFL for a while!” before leading the LA Chargers to win a championship and everyone in this city lighting themselves on fire.
Ol’ Strassy had a good week, striking out 11 in his start against the Braves. Remember when he struck out 23 chumps in a single game at Tony Gwynn Stadium? Let’s fondly reflect on that as well as how much GoAztecs’ video technology has improved in the last 9 years.
Woke Carl Weathers Tweet of The Week
Despite him spending most of the week retweeting people urging the network to renew it for a second season, NBC cancelled his show Chicago Justice this week :(. But it’ll take more than that to keep Apollo Creed down.
