Sorry EP, I'm burying your post with BIG news. (pay your dues)
I saw the Reign Man at the Tulalip Casino on Saturday night/Sunday morning. Shawn Kemp. In the flesh. At first there were conflicting reports, but when I got a look at him there was no doubt... The Reign Man. And you know? He looked good! In shape, seemed happy enough till some douches started buggining him and he ran back into the club (otherwise I would have been that douche).
I'm posting this for three reasons:
1) What the fuck else do we talk about here?
2) It was like seeing a super hero. Maybe that sounds lame... I don't give a shit. I started trying to think of other sports figures that come close to matching that aura... Junior's close. But he's no Reign Man.
and 3) it gives me an excuse to link to these sweet Kemp clips, enjoy:
