Richard ‘Rip’ Hamilton’s Fingernails

This is kind of weird. Maybe that’s why they call him Rip?

Celtics guard Ray Allen joined Michael Jordan and several other NBA stars, including Rip Hamilton, in Las Vegas before training camp to take part in promotional work for Jordan’s Jumpman brand. Allen said he talked to Hamilton about his fingernails, which prompted Allen to wear an arm sleeve against the Pistons in the playoffs last season. “He was saying how when he saw me come out the next game with an arm sleeve on, they started laughing about it,” said Allen. “And then I said, ‘Look, man, I’m wearing an arm sleeve because . . .’ And then I picked his hand up and looked at his nails. And his nails were way out. He said, ‘Man, I didn’t know I cut people up like that. People tell me all the time that I need to cut my nails, but I don’t know what I’m doing.’ I told him, ‘Come on, dog, you know why you’re using them.’ “

Charles Barkley Endorses Obama

I don’t know if anyone else thinks this is interesting or not, but that’s why I have my own blog (or, well, why I convinced Matt to let me color the walls of his blog). Charles Barkley has a history of saying whatever the hell he wants (most of it hilarious or sardonic at least) (I have a list somewhere that I will post when I find it), but he’s always been a gigantic Republican. He’s been talking about running for governor of Alabama forever and apparently he’s going to run in 2014. That will make for an interesting race. In any case, apparently Barkley left the party in ’06, “I was a Republican until they lost their minds.”

Well said, Chuck.
