    A Bench Burritto

    Keep those gems coming Boler.

    I'm not even a Boler hater like some are, but JHC that was terrible.

    I know. I think he actually encouraged it for a second time in the 3rd quarter.

    Boler must have come up with the concept and discussed it together during their pre-game meeting.

    So Harpring couldn't actually back out of it during the game, but you can tell me wasn't 100% behind it either. LOL...

    If it rhymes, or it's an alliteration, you can count on our announcers to think it's super clever and overuse it.

    Or if it's just stupid. For instance:

    Bull in a Kanter shop????? Millsnacks????? Millsnaps??

    Harp's the worst at that crap, but I think it's becoming institutional among the broadcast team. I think the organization must think that the fans like Harpring's lame nicknames.

    Boler's Bench burrito idea was horrible from the start. "You start with a warm tortilla." So what's the tortilla represent in your scenario?

    Even Alema was doing it in the post game. Thurl says something like Kanter is doing what he does best, waste management. And Alema enthusiastically says "Is that his new nickname?" Thurl backed away from that one really quick.

    The only things they have come up with that I like are "Commisioner Gordon" and "Officer Favors"

    Sometimes I even miss Ron Boone qualifying every sentence with "for the most part".

    Oddly, even after saying all this, I still like our crew. Harpring's insights when he isn't trying to be witty or funny. He's like the dork in school that is good at match but tries to be class clown. Unfortunately he doesn't know what's funny.

    I like how everyone tries to act like they are too cool for Harp and Boler. They love the jazz and I love them.

    I'm not sure if it was because it was kind of late when I was watching the game and was way tired, but I had a good laugh over the bench burrito.

    It got really weird when Boler tried to explain it. They should give those guys drugs more often, I lol'd.

    You see, Corbin is like a condom. He keeps holding all those young guys back. And no matter how well they swim.. I mean play. They just can't find a way out of that prophylactic.

    Holy ****, this. I couldn't stop laughing when Boler explained the "bench burrito". They might be idiots, but they're our idiots <3

    I had the game on but muted, so I missed the burritto, but I loved the Harpring Hat that Enes was sporting after the game. I looked for pictures, but came up empty.
