Of course, I suppose Greg has taken some similar spills, or perhaps flops, himself, though I’m almost certain none of his had anything to do with butter on the court…

Okay, I know Duke got knocked out today, and basically got manhandled by the Mountaineers in the 2nd half, so I guess this is piling on a bit. I usually frown upon such behavior, but then I certainly don’t mind making an exception for Greg Paulus (who wouldn’t?).
I think I snapped when CBS showed, for the 4th or 5th time, the clip of Paulus’ smirk after he hit that deep three from the elbow early in the 1st half. It was either then or when I saw Greg chatting up one of the officials as if he’d asked Paulus for an autograph. “Yeah, Ed, holla at me after the game.” To be fair, I obviously have no idea what they were talking about. I’m sure it was something legitimate, it’s just Paulus’ general demeanor, and apparent lack of genuine respect for anyone around him. He’s easily the easiest Duke player to hate since Laettner stomped on that kid from Kentucky back in ’92 or whatever.
Which brings me to this:
It’s an inescapable comparison really. They even look a bit alike. Eerie. The only question is who’s the bigger ass, and, to be perfectly honest, I’m torn. I wouldn’t wager on that one, but I’d be comfortable putting a few down on Johnny in the Octagon. Get him a body bag!
