Birdman Cleared to Fly in Game 5

Chris Andersen has recovered from the food poisoning that kept him out of the Nuggets’ Game 4 loss: “Asked if he would be ready for tonight, Andersen said, ‘I’m going to have a really large storage of energy.’ Anyone who didn’t believe that need look no further than the to-go order of potato salad he devoured just before he answered questions from the media. A couple of IVs on Monday and Tuesday helped as well. ‘I think he’ll be fine,’ coach George Karl said. ‘(On Monday) we had (Carmelo Anthony) and (Linas Kleiza) covering Dirk for the 15 minutes that Chris covers him. I can’t deny that Dirk has more confidence against those guys.’”

    Potato salad? For energy? Just report if he’s eating some suspicious brownies out a brown paper bag before games. That’s your red flag about being ready.

    But in serious, his rehab worked. Being high on life has helped him be amazing for Denver.

    Can’t believe he has a “Honkey Tonk Outlaw” tattoo on his stomach.
    Birdman rules, can’t wait to see him howl after each time he scores.

    I blame Mark Cuban. Insulting people’s mothers, poisoning potato salad… he’s probably responsible for swine flu as well

    Blinguo, potatoes provide a great amount of complex carbohydrates. But you knew that.

    Actually I believe it just says “Honkey Tonk” so far….it kills him to get the rest done.

    I can’t front. I like the Birdman; however, I find it a little disturbing how all them lil’ crackas in South Park stand up and go nuts every time he even steps on the court.

    Potato salad sounds like something you might want to avoid after a food poisoning scare. Made wrong, it even looks like poison. I figured he eats candy like Derrick Rose for energy. Or instead of those IV’s, he takes that heart attack inducing Red Bull/Monster/whatever energy drinks.
