I’ve had multiple arguments with my ex roommate OB over the caliber of athletes in more mainstream sports compared to those in MMA. OB says NBA players and guys in the NFL are light years beyond the best MMA stars, and I couldn’t disagree more. Our verbal wars got more and more heated until I declared that it didn’t matter if you could run fast and jump high if you could get subbed by Shinya Aoki. That somehow became the litmus test.
I’m pretty sure that his response was Derrick Rose could beat Shinya Aoki in a fight. To which I threw my hands in the air and walked away.
I don’t know what any of this even means or where it is going, but here is a picture of Derrick Rose, BJ Penn and Adrian Peterson all wearing matching sweaters with 33% of them looking somewhat happy, 33% of them looking downright joyous and 33% of them looking none too pleased. The remaining one percent is floating in the multiverse.
Due to the odd nature of this post, we might as well run an impromptu caption contest. If any of you registered readers can come up with a decent caption, there might be a MiddleEasy Magic Beanie in it for you if the caption is good enough…
Thanks to Chef Bernie for bringing this to the attention of the staff.
