Cuban Olympian confused, angry after defection to China

Cuban boxer, Youdenis Ugas’ plan to defect from Cuba hit a snag on Monday as he learned that he had defected to a country with a similar communist government to his native Cuba. 

After years of training in the boxing ring as a way out of Cuba, Ugas has now found himself making SpongeBob dolls for K-Mart in the central China city of Chongqing as a government worker.      

“This thing, it is a terrible thing”; replied Ugas from his work encampment.  “I train my whole life for this and now, I make the SpongeBob thing.  What is this SpongeBob?  It wears a tie but is a sponge?  I can’t believe this!  What kind of *** damn deal I have now?”

In a letter to the Spanish language newspaper, Juventud Rebelde (Havana), Ugas wrote that he had heard from Castro’s radio speeches as a kid that China was a great place and that they had a great government but after two weeks without tortillas, and with 16 hour work days, he’s rethought this and is ready to get home to his south Cuba hut. 

An unnamed Cuban Olympian tells ESPN Deportes that; “Youdenis was excited about getting out.  He said that it was his big chance… it was all very exciting.  He’s no idiot though.  He said if China isn’t the paradise Castro said it was, North Korea was just over a fence.  He’ll be fine.

Worst College Football Helmet list (Part II)

Bean’s list: TSB’s top 20 worst helmet list (10-1)

 

Thanks, Western Carolina!  Catwoman now has a hat! 

 

 

That smartass doctor on MASH really made a stupid looking helmet

 

 

 

Thanks to Bowling Green, enroll in free checking and get tickets to the Marshall game so… That’s cool, huh?

 

 

 

Warrensburgh, MO Pop: 874.  Saaaaaaalute! 

 

 

 

Give them the bird!  In the spirit of the unbridled success of the Arizona Cardinals, these schools have decided to pick up the mantle and dawn the chopped off bird head on the helmet look.  Real scary, boys.  **Side note. Apparently in Kentucky, the birds have more teeth than the residents

WY did they do this? 

 

 

 

 

 

That creepy Grimmace looking mascot should have told us enough. The Bean’s concern here is of this helmet may cloud your view of just how stupid this helmet is.  Maybe they are throwing the “play under review” flag.  Maybe it was dreamed up in WKU’s psychology dept as a way of subliminally telling the opponent that “we are aware of the rules and we further know that we can demand a review of any of the several touchdowns that you are about to score”.

Canadian Brothers Pissed That Fantasy Curling Is Canceled

London, ON –  Bob and Kyle McInnis are scrambling to find answers.  From anyone.  The London, Ontario brothers were among the dozens of recipients this week of emails informing them that their fantasy curling league will not be picked up again this year on Yahoo Sports. 

“I don’t understand this”, stated a distraught Kyle McInnis.  “I’ve already taken the money, had shirts made, and planned our draft at The Trax Bar.” 

An un-named spokesman at Yahoo Sports issued the following to theSportsbean:  “I honestly didn’t even know curling was a real sport.  I thought that was the name of the fat guy from the Three Stooges.  We ran an audit this spring and found out that there was a fantasy curling league.  None of us could believe it!  I asked around and nobody admitted to approving this.  I’m pretty sure it was Mike.  He says “aboot” and wears a Maple Leafs jersey on Fridays. 

“This is just great, added an equally annoyed Bob.  I had the first pick this year and got the third pick from Leonard because I let that slob use my fishing shanty last year.  I’m pretty pissed.”
