We can't be sure, but we're getting the sneaking suspicion that this is all because of that Gin Blossoms album we stole from Hawley-Cooke 10 years ago.
McGee may have suffered the injury in practice on Friday while extending his leg on defense. Swelling occurred in the knee following Sunday's exhibition victory over Kentucky Wesleyan and a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination at Jewish Hospital on Monday revealed a tear in the lateral meniscus. Dr. John Ellis will perform the surgery on Tuesday at Jewish Hospital.
This is the point where we'd usually order someone or something to perform a fellatious act on us, but sadly it seems we've run out of people, groups and historical landmarks.
Of course the worst part of this (for those of us not having knee surgery today) is that McGee finally looked like the guy to run the show on Saturday.
He shed the extra weight in the offseason, competed valiantly (so we're told) for the starting PG spot in practice, and then scored 16 points and looked far more capable of running the offense than he had at any time last season in the 23 minutes he logged in Saturday's season-opening win over Northwestern State. He even apparently gave up his trademark move of penetrating into the lane and then trying to shoot the ball through the arms of two players eight inches taller than him.
So just when we thought it couldn't get much worse, it now appears that whoever is responsible for these calamities is beginning to perfect timing.
It's not unusual for Carlton Banks
look-alikes to make us cry.
What this means now is that the maturation process of another young point guard with an affinity for getting into the lane and then winging it, Edgar Sosa, is going to have to be accelerated a bit if the Cards want to have any hope of taking out Lexington University on Dec. 16.
But more importantly this means....more Brad.
Watch this bad ass dominate every Division 1 team
you've never heard of all December.
