Buffalo Bill- Eminem
Thanks to their two first round draft prospects at running back, the Oregon Ducks NCAA college football team is currently ranked 7th in the nation. Although astounding, having 2 running backs of such a high caliber is not necessarily unheard of. Auburn’s Ronnie Brown and Cadillac Williams both were drafted in the top 5 after sharing carries throughout the 2004 season. Both Darren Mcfadden and Felix Jones were drafted in last years first round and Reggie Bush,as well as his burly USC counterpart Lendale White, continue to make significant contributions to their respective NFL teams. So what’s so special about Oregon’s Tandem? The answer lies in the mystique of the La. LaGarrette Blount and LaMichael James that is.
Ive heard of Lavars, Laroys, even Larrys but never have a heard of a LaBrian. Not even a LaTravis or a LaKyle, which no you do not say when making a Judaistic toast of sorts. So how do these two La’s end up at the same position on the same team. Put them both together and they could marry Carmello Anthony. Find another La and you have one of my favorite Lil Wayne songs. No not the one with Busta Rhymes, the original one that sounds nothing like, yet is significantly better than the one found on the album. Oregon also has a NaDerris Ward playing offensive lineman. I wonder what his mother used to say when he asked to stay up past his bedtime. “Na NaDerris”. What happens if he decides to have a sex change adopts children and becomes a grandmother, would he be known as “Nana NaDerris”.
Anyway this isn’t meant to ridicule parents who enjoy the sound of 2 letter words before their son’s first names. It’s about how lately; coincidences no longer seem as such. Did a higher power find it necessary to put these two La’s together. Is God just a fan of words that when said repeatedly seem to have a musical rhythm. Who knows? All I know is that I am rooting for Oregon, the La’s and the Na to leave the Rose Bowl with a win. And as long as Mr. Blount can avoid bar fights and another long suspension, a win is inevitable.
