Memorial Day Weekend, for those not on the road: Vote for Ronny!


Upside and Motor had a terrific thought this weekend: You know TNT's "Yellowbook Cam," a web video stream which follows one player from each team through an entire Western Conference Finals game? [B]Well, stop voting for Kobe -- let's get Ronny Turiaf elected. U&M explains:


Who wants to watch Kobe on a player cam when he's touching the ball 90% of the time anyway? A Ronny-cam would likely be more entertaining than the game itself: a 12-minute spurt of yelling, cheering, dancing, and assorted bench shenanigans.
By way of an Odenized-provided video from Friday's game, I concur. Oh yes, I concur.

The brief video of Ronny on the site is guaranteed to start your Sunday with a smile! We need to see more!

Kobe's the runaway leader right now, at 64%, and Ronny a distant 4%. What are those folks thinking!!!!!????

We need to get behind the gentleman from Martinique and push him ahead of the Kobester!

Who should I vote for on the San Antonio side? Tim Duncan's fun to watch, but I wonder about Tony Parker.... Who else?

Ime Udoka. Seems like a great guy.



Save the Parker-cam for after the game. :D

On that linked site (tnt.tv), there's a nice little video of an interview (http://www.tnt.tv/sports/nba/playoffs08_ondemand/?first_video=) with Ronny about what means most to him on the court. (You might need to click on the link for Ronny on that page.)

And this thread needs a pic, here with Tim Duncan in game two of the of the Western Conference Finals at Los Angeles:

And did we ever see his dad, George, when he was at GU? Was mama the one from whom he inherited his height? The face is sure familiar, though. Photo taken at the same game as the photo with Tim Duncan above:

Hope Dad sticks around long enough to see his son get his NBA championship ring.

That's great, ZagNut. I also liked this one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTy0-RjeMu4) with Jordan Farmar in a pre-game "dance." That routine should become the official Zags greeting whenever old friends meet. It doesn't even require a great sense of rhythm, which a lot of us lack, along with the ability to jump.

Vote % for Ronny is now 14%, up from 4% when this thread started. Ronny lovers (and dance lovers!) unite!

Yeah, I know. Headbanging isn't so much what you'd expect coming from Ronny, but you know he'd do whatever the team needed.

This is very, very good, MedZag. while those to the east us of sleep, we're sneakily positioning Ronny atop the Smith Tower, and next we'll TP all the Kobe-sympathizers' houses and strand their Esplanades atop garbage cans!

Ronny 63%, Kobe 24%. Is it true what they say about Zags having no killer instinct? We need to keep going for the jugular. Vote now and often.
