The assembled racket enthusiasts who attended at Day 6 of the 2011 China Open expected to see top-flight tennis, sure, and all the Jo-Wilfried Tsonga they could stomach, too. But they did not expect to see their nation's largest retiree belt out the most beautiful rendition of "Always on My Mind" they'd ever heard. But then, Yao Ming has always been full of surprises. Broken foot bones and surprises.
Best caption wins The Elvis, which sounds especially delicious after a missed lunch hour. Good luck.
In our last adventure: Billy Hunter's all like, "What light through yonder window breaks?" And Kobe Bryant's all like, "It is a street light, because we have been negotiating all [EXPLETIVE] day and now it's nighttime, and oh man I just want this all to be over."
Winner, Al: Billy Hunter and Kobe Bryant watch as the 2011-12 season fades off into the sunset.
Runner-up, azv321: It's no wonder talks aren't progressing when all these guys want to do is reenact "Hogan's Heroes" all day. Hunter's Colonel Klink needs work, but after hours practicing alone in a gym, Kobe's Schultz is spot-on.
Second runner-up, Chasten: Hunter: "Kobe, I think I see the light at the end of the tunnel."
Bryant: "Nah, man, thats just Arn Tellem's Tesla coming here to do your job."
