Default My Mo Story.




As some of you may know, I used to work for the Raptors, I started in the catering department.

One of the first days on the job, I had to go set up and deliever the food to the dressing room.

I was super nervous pushing my little cart in there after the game. After stuggling through the doors, almost dropping the pasta, I hung the immediate left to go set it up in front of the TV.

The first thing I heard was..."About fucking time, can ya hurry that up", turning around I saw an, angry, sweaty and naked Kevin Willis, I was already feeling pretty small at the time...but the inevitable glance down made me even feel smaller.

Sweaty palms now, I meet the chef in the room and we begin to set everything up. While we are doing that some of the players, couldn't wait two fucking minutes, and were climbing over me and moving stuff around, taking a plate of food, before it was even ready. The worst offenders...Oakley, Willis and Corliss.

At that point a young Morris Peterson spoke up and said, "guys can we give the guy a chance here, back up and let him finish". Let me tell ya I thought Oak, was going to kill him, stared at Mo, and Mo looked right back at him and said "just let the guy do his job".

I loved Mo, from that momment on, as I was making my way out of the room, cart full of garbage and stuff...and I was trying to reach of the door, a chafing dish fell and made the biggest noise...as the team was have their "rapup" meeting. There were laughs...and eyerolls, I wanted to die.

As I was trying to gather myself Mo ran over picked up the lid, grabbed the door for me, and shook my hand on the way out.

He simply said "thank you, we appreciate it", inside his hand when he shook mine...$100 bones.

I bought his jersey the next day, and as time went on, he was one of the only guys that took the time to learn my name, always said "hello" when he passed me in the halls.

So for that reason, and more, Morris Peterson will recieve a standing ovation from me on Sunday,

just to say

"Thank you, I appreciated it"

I was going to make a biting, witty comment, but instead I'll let you have your moment.

Nice story.

LMAO .... that was funny Benzo.

My only problem is that if I didn't know you, I'd swear it was a little teenager girl telling the story. Your so smitten with Mo .... its cute.

BTW, I'm going to ask lang to kindly put this on the blog as well I'm going to post it at Yard Barker and Ball Hype. Funny stuff.

hey... that is a good Mo story. I wasn't sure what to expect when you mentioned you had such a story in the past.

That's great, man.

Must have felt pretty cool at the time too. (not the blooper parts that is.)

GSWgirl from Yard Barker liked it too. If things don't pan out with your wedding this summer benzo, you should give GSWgirl a call.

Benzo - Great story...was hoping to find a good one for our preview tomorrow amongst
the numerous Raps blogs. Mo was always my favourite too and was sad to see him go.
