JIMMMMAAAAAYYYYY BUTLAHHHHHH!

I'm still basking in the glory of last night's victory and was wondering which game winning shot by Butler was more impressive. Thanks to the National City Highlight of the Week for the following clips:





I'd give a slight edge to the SJU shot just because of the lose ball aspect of the play.

But as I watched the SJU post game interview with Jimmy on the plane I couldn't help but pick up the song that appeared to be playing on his headphones. It sounds to me like another Miley Cyrus' song and it reminded me of this clip from the team's trip to Disney in November (watch the last 30 seconds).



So my question to the blog is: Do we need to be worried about one of our best basketball players if he has an unhealthy obsession with Miley Cyrus or should we just leave it be and let himself get psyched up for games with whatever music he prefers?

For all I care, Jimmy Clutch can listen to D3's fucking faux country shit if he keeps making game winners.

shut your mouth Rubie. The Avett Brothers are awesome.

But yeah, keep jamming to Miley. Whatever floats your boat Jimmy.

That shot is even more incredible after seeing it for a second time in slow motion! It's also entertaining to watch Lazar jump around like a school girl after it goes through the net.

Now we need to win on Sunday. That would guarantee a winning record with 2 games at home remaining. I would feel good about only needing to split at home to go 11-7. 11-7 gets us in!

Whatever, DD. Take your cowboy hat and go eat some pudding.

I honestly think that 10-8 gets us into the tournament. I'd prefer 11-7, but I think 10-8 will get us dancing.

All of the Big East teams that sit at 7-8 (cinci, uconn, seton hall, notre dame) aren't going to win their final 3 games. Big East will get 7 bids and those sitting at 10-8 will get in.

We only need to win 1 of the final three to be dancing. Winning 2 of three makes me a lot more comfortable, but I really think we only need one more.

Hmmm, STG - How the hell did you know that was Miley? STG are you a closet Miley fan? I think that's the more important question.

EMoney said...

I don't think 10-8 is a lock. The reason being, we do not have a signature win over a top team. Conference record will not be the final judge on Selection Sunday. I would be very scared if UConn only has 1 less conference loss than MU, but boasts wins over Villanova, West Virginia, and Texas, while MU's best are a 7 loss G'town team and an 11 loss UConn team. Sure we won the head to head, but if it comes down to a toss up of who gets in between the 2 of us....UConn passes the eye test on name, coach, and talent compared to MU. 10 wins might get MU in, but it would make for a very nerve racking Sunday. 11 is the magic number.

Rubes - at least I'm not taking my music cues from the Dan Patrick Show**

**Referencing your love for "Wake Up" but refusal to listen to the Arcade Fire's second album***

***Asterisks are further proof of Rubie's blossoming internet boyfriend relationship with KL Snow

Rubie Q said...

Refusal to listen to the second album? EVERY TIME you tell me about that album, I ask if I can have a copy. And you say yes, and yet, here I sit, Fire-less. Asshat.

And don't EVER question DP.

Mr. Sparkle said...

D#, I was ging to make that comment** earlier***.

**Lot of man-love going on in here.
***Rubie usually prefers boyz to men.

Devil's Threesome said...

Is Ackbar the old DeeDub?

Our resume is still weak. Our best wins are @UConn, N-Xavier and G'town. We need to close out 2-1 for me to feel comfortable.

I am still happy as hell about the win. We shot terribly and still beat a team who has some scalps in their closet. Buzz has this group overachieving and Zar and Jimmy are carrying us. Bring on the Pirates!

Rubie Q said...

Death, taxes, and Mr. Sparkle making the "he prefers boyz to men" joke.

You were making that joke 15 years ago, cockstalker. Come on -- update your material. You're (slightly) better than that.

In case you haven't heard it, the boys from Cracked Sidewalks found a link to Homer's call of Jimmy's shot:

D3, yes A A S. J. was formerly known as Deedub.

Gotta love it when Homer tries passing it off to Mac...

Homer: "Take it Mac"

Mac: (In the background)"ITS GOOD ITS GOOD"

I don't think Mac was even listening to Homer. It wasn't exactly Al Michaels calling the US victory over Russia in 1980, but I love it anyways!
