Jermaine O Neal's Competitiveness Knows No Bounds
 
From his raptors.com interview with Mike Ulmer...

Quote:

M.U.: Is it true you tried to buy all your daughter Asjias girl guide cookies so she could have the highest sales in her Brownie troupe.

J.O.: Yeah, yeah. Im so competitive. Last year, I bought 70 boxes. I still have them in the pantry. We wanted to teach her the value of competing, but Im so competitive, it ran into my daughters life. I had to stand back and she sold them at grocery stores. She finished second this year but it was a good second. She learned something and she taught Dad a lot too.

Being that serious about getting the W...good.

Giving a ridiculously unfair advantage to the girl who's father makes $20 million a year...maybe not so good :haha:

Why the hell not? I'd do it once, just for fun. ;)

Please note that next year he "cut her off".

'trane 07-11-2008 03:29 PM

hey, i'll take whatever advantage he can give us...

On a side note....girl guide cookies are freaking fantastic.

Snooch 07-11-2008 03:32 PM

I like girl guide cookies

LX 07-11-2008 03:35 PM

Wasn't there an episode of Friends about this? Is it a good thing if he has a life that mirrors Friends episodes?

^^Better than the Wire

If you ask me, his comment about his daughter teaching him was what stood out.

Boy I hope his knee holds er together.

LX 07-11-2008 03:44 PM

Yeah - he is looking like a great guy - a character guy - and he'll get in people's faces if he needs to. Perfect.

Now, that Friends' episode had an ingenious solution. Ross ended up selling a whole lot of cookies as munchies on campus. ;)

As any good art should be.

Frida Kahlo had the unibrow. Jose has the unibrow. It's a perfect fit as far as I can see.

Hehe. I giggled after reading the first post.

I like that in a guy. competitive, at any costs, skillful, determined, and above all has class.

All the more reason to be anxious for October.
