T-Wolves’ Suckage: Bad News for Al Jefferson’s TV

Sickened by what he was seeing, the injured big man shattered his flatscreen by throwing a shoe at it: “The Minnesota Timberwolves star’s first experience with a traumatic injury has been difficult to handle at times and he has already taken his frustrations out on one TV in his suburban Minneapolis home after being reduced to a 6-foot-10, 265-pound couch potato. ‘I’m replacing a TV in my house right now, as we speak, because I threw things at the TV because I’d be so upset,’ Jefferson said sheepishly yesterday in his first public comments since he was injured in a game against New Orleans on Feb.8. ‘Sometimes it’s a bad call with the ref or anything. So I’ve got to control my emotion on that point.’ It turns out that a thrown size 18 shoe can do quite a bit of damage to a flatscreen TV. ‘I had to replace that TV anyway,’ Jefferson said with a shrug.”

    There’s going to be about another 3 seasons of tv smashing before the Wolves can cure their flatscreen murder rate.

    I’m more impressed that one of the T-Wolves could actually hit his intended target. Still, I guess it’s ironic that the only one who can is injured…….

    I’m glad to see professional athletes are just like the normal viewing public. Well, except for the fact that he can just shrug off the fact of having to replace a flat screen tv.

    At least he can be pissed off and show his emotions and the only “fine” is replacing his flatscreen…wonder what would’ve happened if he was sittin behind the bench…
