    Houston and Nigeria became partners in the oil business because Hakeem Olajuwon bridged the cultural gap.

    However Antarctica does not like Houston because of their treatment of baby seals

    I'm not even a Lin fan. The Harvard graduate that is a multimillionaire professional athlete thing sort of pisses me off.

    the rockets were one of the top teams with the highest amount of sellout games this season. If there were any empty seats, it was probably the crappy businesses that buy season tickets and don't end up going or giving away their ticket.

    I think it's because Houston is more of a football city.

    That's a good point, but perhaps the Rockets could take a contrarian approach and embrace the seal clubbing movement. Apparently Ellen DeGeneres stirred-up quite the controversy lately:

    http://www.cbc.ca/newsblogs/yourcom...o-ellens-seal-hunt-views-with-fur-photos.html

    If the Rockets sponsor a seal clubbing day, they could replace the loss of LOFs with SCOFs (Seal Clubber Only Fans). Clyde Drexler is a charter member and Yao has already been spotted clubbing baby seals.

    <iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/JJ1MTsLHjTk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    I'm happy to now consider myself a SCOF. Finally, an 'only-fan' designation that can cross racial lines.

    I can't even understand the tangents tinman and his kin made. It had nothing to do wish anything.

    What pisses you off about it ?

    Lin put hard work and got his contract. He is certainly overpaid but that was not in his control. If people overpay you you would be happy

    Damn. My comment cut you up so much you had to come back again and reply a second time?
    hahahah

    Oh don't get this twisted. I don't read the majority of your threads.

    I knew I couldn't be the only one who thinks you're truly pathetic so I did a little research. Took me 20 seconds to realise.

    You'd think after a fair few threads you'd take a break. Seems you cherish the 1 and 2 stars and are going for that worst poster on clutchfans title. As soon as the LOF are cleared out, don't worry boy - you will be.

    And why would I watch baseball?
    I have no inkling to follow a sport I find incredibly boring.
    hahahah

    I find it boring too. But I don't know why there's a minor league baseball thread on the GARM, must be something about their relief pitcher?

    I'm Hakeem status,

    in the world of the Houston Rockets and Clutch City, Hakeem is the pinacle of success.

    You know, MVPs, championships, statue, retired jerseys, top 50 players of all time

    But if you get out of the first round mentality, you might get to Hakeem status

    I wish you good luck
