What--Were the Slag Brothers Not Available?

Reggie Bush plays football for the New Orleans Saints, and he has a contract that could potentially pay him $62 million dollars over six years.

So ESPN had a "Celebrity Basketball Game" during NBA All-Star weekend, and Reggie Bush played. Along with Carrot Top and Squatch (who is the Seattle Supersonics mascot and is a man dressed in a Sasquatch costume). Watching the video, I half-expected to see Dick Dastardly and Muttley in The Mean Machine driving onto the court.

Here's what happened: Reggie Bush was running up and down the court with Sasquatch, who was on his team, and Bush went up to block a shot, landed wrong, and hurt his ankle. He had to be helped off the court.

You can see the video here. It's surreal, and the only thing that could have made it funnier was if Reggie Bush had been trying to block a shot by Sasquatch.

Maybe next year.
