Manu Ginobili can’t remember the girl’s name. Annette something?

Sometimes Manu Ginobili tries to see how much time he can eat up on a jukebox at a bar. Even if he doesn’t like them, he’ll just pick the longest songs available. Favorites include “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,” “Do You Feel Like I Do?,” “Hey Jude,” “The End,” “Shine on You Crazy Diamond,” and “Whipping Post.”

Manu Ginobili did not say cheese.

During the year of 2001, Manu Ginobili participated in a Wesley Snipes newsgroup. He had completely forgotten about it until he got an E-Mail from someone yesterday with the subject line “Is Demolition Man any good–thinking about renting.” Manu Ginobili replied, “You obviously don’t belong here. Demolition Man is f*&$ing awesome. {s BOGGLE.wav}

Manu Ginobili only watches fullscreen DVDs. I mean, he didn’t buy a bigass TV to waste all that space at the top and bottom with black bars. He wants to see the whole picture, know what I mean?

 

At this time, there is actually no way Manu Ginobili could be president. He was not born in the United States, he has not lived in the United States for fourteen years, he is under thirty-five years of age, and he is not even a citizen. Sorry.

Manu Ginobili has an extensive collection of Tevas.

Last night Manu Ginobili was playing poker–he had the short stack against his friend Jacque and was the big blind–and Manu Ginobili was in with friggin’ pocket rockets, diamond and club. Jacque raised and then re-raised him pre-flop, but Jacque had just raised on a king-five the hand before, so Manu Ginobili called bullshit, right? The flop was three of clubs, seven of hearts and the ace of hearts–no, ace of spades. So Manu Ginobili goes all in, which doesn’t scare off Jacque at all. He goes all in too. Everyone else folds; they’re going head-to-head. The turn is a nine or diamonds or something–whatever, doesn’t help Manu Ginobili. The river is another nine, so Manu Ginobili feels pretty good about his trip aces. Like, at most, Jacque has three nines with a king kicker, right? He probably doesn’t have a boat. They throw down, and Jacque ends up having four nines, dude. He has four of a kind. Why did he even go all in with the nines to begin with if there was nothing on the flop? Nines should not beat pre-flop aces, bro. I mean…I mean, that’s just wrong, right? Who would have ever thought that Manu Ginobili expected one thing to happen, and the cards fell in a completely different manner? That’s just crazy. Four of a kind nines, bro. That’s just a bad beat right there.

Manu Ginobili refers to margaritas as “margs.”
