Some Nerd Got Fouled so Hard in a Game of Basketball, He Actually Called the Cops
There have been a lot of petty people in the news recently calling the cops on folks for doing the most frivolous of things.
It seems like there’s a never-ending list of nonsensical reasons people are using as an excuse to call the popo.
But this one definitely has to be one of the nerdiest—because the amount of self-delusion you must live with, along with the gallons of pride you have to swallow in order to carry this out, is purely unfathomable.
A man actually called the cops because he felt he was fouled too hard in a game of basketball.
Yes. The grown man, who can be seen in the black clothes talking to the police above, is trying to explain, with a straight face, that the good-faith rules of the game were violated so harshly that law enforcement needed to be called. That, and the fact that the tax dollars spent on cops’ time, should be devoted to hearing his grievances.
The look on the man’s face in blue pretty much sums it all up.
Twitter user @_togs relayed the events that led up to this ridiculous moment.
It all started with a game of basketball. A hard pick (defensive move) sends the man to the floor. It happens all the time, it’s part of the game. You get back up, and if you feel like it was a dirty foul, you speak up about it.
This guy, however, got up and threatened to call the cops. Which everyone else probably thought was a joke.
Until they realized that no, this man is actually that petty.
The man with the sleeves was the individual who set up the screen that sent the dude in black to the floor.
When the cops did arrive and address the mess they were presented with, they were clearly not happy to be there.
They left without taking any action against anybody (I wonder why) and nothing was resolved. Except for the fact that everyone knows to never play basketball with this dude ever again. God forbid you don’t let him score on you and you’ll have the cops running over to the gym.
The worst part is that the foul wasn’t even that bad. Screens are screens—if you bump into someone, you will fall down.
People began noticing similarities between his expression and the expressions of other famed petty cop callers.
Someone even captured video of the incident, so you can see the lameness in all its petty glory.
Chrissy Teigen Starts Basketball Rumor About LeBron James And It Ends Up Being True
Chrissy Teigen’s not just a model, TV personality, amazing cook with a penchant for delicious recipes, and Queen of Twitter who shuts trolls down by reminding them of her net worth, she’s also a clairvoyant.
Or at least an unintentional one.
Teigen recently became an accidental Nostradamus after tweeting that she wanted to start some basketball rumors
Now this was before it was officially announced that “The King” would leave the Cavs to go to another franchise. The league’s top player can have his choice of any team in the NBA and any one would be happy to have him.
Now there was a lot of talk of LeBron going to the Philadelphia 76ers or Boston Celtics…there weren’t many arguing that he’d head to LA. Yet here we are. And Teigen “called it” in a few hilarious tweets. She even provided “proof” of her made-up rumor.
Apparently some people didn’t get the memo beforehand and took Teigen’s claims seriously.
Why would @KingJames have to get his own embroidery done ? Smh He has “people” for that right ?
Ted Cruz had it pretty rough when he was fighting to win the GOP primary that ultimately went to Trump. He was constantly ridiculed and was made into several memes, the most popular of which likened him to the Zodiac Killer, up until the moment he admitted defeat.
When he lost, he remained defiant and stood up against Trump, who regularly insulted Cruz’s wife and family during the primaries. Just when the internet started showing their approval for a man who refused to debase himself to potentially secure a position if Trump were elected, he came out with a statement in support of Trump, brushing aside the insults and humiliation that the current president subjected him to, and even helped make phone calls to ensure people would come out and vote, which was remixed almost immediately because of how sad he looked in it.
Deadspin is a sports website that reports on literally anything related to sports, and they asked Twitter for pictures of Ted Cruz playing basketball after finding out the senator started holding a weekly basketball game for him and his buddies in senate to help them become better friends, noting that someone said he had a pretty good jumpshot but also terrible, horrible form.
