Florida Gulf Coast endeared itself to America during the NCAA tournament last March with its array of deft lob passes and high-flying slam dunks.
Unfortunately for the Eagles, it looks like they're not always quite so smooth off the court.
Dreadlocked shooting guard Sherwood Brown and a group of his ex-FGCU teammates, interrupted UFC women's bantamweight Miesha Tate while she was doing a TV interview after the ESPY Awards. Brown then made a very clumsy pickup attempt before Tate quickly shut him down, all while the ESNEWS cameras were rolling.
"I would love to take a piece of that," Brown told her, "I would love to take a piece."
Reponded Tate dryly and dismissively, "You wouldn't remember it."
Better luck next time, Sherwood, but it was worth a try. As the old saying goes, you miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take.
(Thanks, The Big Lead)
