44 year old idiot gets into first fist fight - CORRECTION- runs into fist - "goal" debate settled - Studs&Duds chimes in - lawyers muck up another thr (1 Viewer)

BTW getting on you for using goal that are over 20 are just fishing.   I grew up on a playground, played at the Y a ton and played in midnight basketball where we were the only cracker team.  First game at midnight basketball they were not ready for us.  Every game after that the chant was "bring on the crackers" from the fans before we took the court.

So I just read all six pages catching up.  Suds  :lmao: :lmao: :cry:

I played hoops for 40 years. Not once did anyone ever claim to have made a goal or asked me to move to another goal.

So you deserved to get punched in the face for calling it a goal.

Go play on the other court, hoop, or basket. Not once a goal.

The only time I've ever seen the word goal associated with basketball is the display at ****'s Sporting Goods for the entire basket, backboard and pole all together.
 

 
A funny side note from my past:

Had a roommate in college that loved White Men Can't Jump so much that he made an audio only recording of the movie on a CD and would play it in his car while he drove on long trips.  He said he could still "see the movie" in his head while he was driving so it was like he was watching it while he drove.


This post deserved a lot more love.  :lmao:

Also, great thread.

Also also, people who haven't heard "goal" live under rocks, just fell off turnip trucks, live in their parents' basements, etc. and are probably just generally horrible people if not genocidal maniacs.

 
The Bulldolls disagree with you.

Only time you've ever called it a goal is when you moved into each new house and one was in the driveway or propped up against the curb.

 
So where are you going to go shoot hoops now?  I mean there is no way you can ever show up there again. You have to believe if you did, people would be whispering behind your back,, "There is that guy Urkel beat up. The guy charged at him screaming about goals and how much he lifts and Boom, Steve just beat him down."  

 
-You were afraid of being arrested after the assault took place on you?

You're height and weight were not a deterrent in any way,  that should tell you something. When do you think that thug assaulted the last person? Last week, last month? He'll strike again so you not summoning the police because your ego got damaged likely ensures that the next person is going to get even worse because if he can take down a 6-2/220 Hercules then you bet your ### he won't think twice about the next person he might decide to hit and god forbid they are a woman.  

-You paint it like you were looking out for him and you did him a favor but the reality is he dropped you like a slab of meat and...

MOP story time: In 2012 roughly or thereabouts I owned a moving company out of South Florida with two 18-wheelers up/down the 95 corridor (NY-FL) and then two 24-28 foot box trucks that ran East/West in the Carolinas.

-One day I get a driver who doesn't pick up a load along the way and when I ask him about why he abandoned my customers, he says the neighborhood looked a little rough and a disagreement breaks out leading to an eventual "please step outside". I didn't understand what he meant but I thought I was doing him a favor so i stepped outside the office with him taking the discussion outside to show him respect but NO that immediately turned into him sucker punching me before I could barely get out the door and he was much smaller than I was in terms of weight at the time, I might have had him by almost 75-100 lbs, he didn't give a #### and he was going to try and disfigure me. He dropped me into a 3 foot empty plant pot and I had no way to even get my hands/arms up to protect myself and finally someone comes outside and I go to call the police and he decides to flee the scene. I didn't have my nose broke but he came close and I had many bruises on my face and especially my arms and wrists, sore for days after. I told you that to set this up...   

-When you own a business sometimes you gotta do things you don't want to do...so while I wanted to fire him immediately, I was reminded by my partner that we had a schedule and he had to take the truck and drive for us...i asked why we couldn't get another driver but it would have taken a few days and it was summer and that is season in the moving business so I allowed him to leave with my truck...But when he returned home, me and a few Irish friends I know met him in Atlanta where his actual home was and I relieved him of his duties on the spot at the Pilot, and that's all I'm gonna say about that.

Lighten up, Francis.

 
If he truly did, as he describes, "run at the kid" in a "rage" the kid was probably acting in self-defense and, at least legally, the punch was justified.*

*Note: I obviously don't know the exact self-defense laws of the OP's state, but given just the facts as described the kid was probably legally justified in the assaultive action. 
Yeah I will say, the kids actions prior too aside, if some dude is running up on me in a rage I’m swinging first too.  I’ve been in enough street fights in my life to know don’t be the first one to get hit.

My knees won’t allow me to play anymore and miss it. Use to be able to goal dunk pretty easy, could probably barely touch the goal net anymore.

I'm still fascinated by the guy who taped the White Men Cant Jump audio so he could listen to the movie in his car
it's an odd movie choice, but I think I did the same thing back in the day. I know I had a recording of Glengarry Glen Ross that I would listen to on long road trips.

also, I'm on Team No Goal

Ahhh, we are make believing we owned a business now. 

 Good stuff.

Do you use the N word?  

 
I was thinking Steve Buscemi’s character in The Big Lebowski.
Same here, but the meme is from the movie Major League, and Uecker goes, "Dynamite drop-in, Monty. Broadcasting school certainly paid off." Or something like that. But it's Monty. Either way, it was funny that Jayrod said that to Rudnicki. Cracked me up a bit.

Yeah, I can see that especially for aspiring business and sales folks, etc but White Men Cant Jump???  :lmao:

Knew a kid in college that had "Fletch" audio on cassette. He was a kind of an uninspiring fellow at the time, and I thought that this quirk was a sign of him trying too hard, which he was wont to do. 

I guess to each their own. White Men Can't Jump has some pretty darn good dialogue for a movie that wasn't that critically acclaimed. It's a surprisingly good movie in parts. 

"There ain't no vista, and there certainly ain't no view." 

 
Just got back from coaching two goal ball games. Unfortunately we lost in the championship game, but it was fun and I avoided getting punched.
haha.. that reminds me of when i coached my daughters team and in a championship game we were getting destroyed in, there best player under her own basket when the play was already at the other end, for no reason whatsoever and totally out of the blue, just swung and decked one of our players.  

I think I was the only one involved in the game that saw it because the play was at the other end. There were about 50 in the crowd and most of them saw it.  Calmly went over and talked to the refs. Neither saw it. Saw no point in continuing and we walked off the court and took the forfeit with about 10 minutes left.

What is this basket you speak of?

"And there certainly ain't no vista of no view"

 
I've got a men's league game tomorrow - I'll try make it a point that anytime someone makes a shot to say "Nice Goal"

Now, to be fair to @Jayrod, a decent argument can be made in his favor as if one blocks a shot that was on it's way down or has already hit the backboard, it is called GOALtending . However, given the typical FBGuy demographic, I'd guess this is something they are unfamiliar with as most would likely struggle to touch the net, much less be able to GOALtend.

Dude, the Bulldolls and I are from Indiana.  There are only two things we know there:  basketball, and...well, actually just basketball.
Isn't there some awful pizza chain there too that y'all are semi-"famous" for?

 
So found this thread online discussing goal vs. hoop/basket where an author was writing a book and the editor (in NY), changed the use of "goal" to "hoop".

According to the discussion it is a regional thing to call it a goal.  Apparently Kentucky, Southern Missouri, and Kansas are known regions to use goal interchangeably, but the coasts and north do not.

The editor and the author decided to include a note in the book (it was a children's book):

"Marybeth has a basketball goal (they call it a goal, not a hoop here in KY!) in her driveway, so to get warmed up for the big game we shot some baskets."
