PDX Pup: Morrison, Gonzaga Have Arrived

HaHaHa! You know you’ve arrived as a player/program when “Law & Order” is making fun of your star player:

(show opens CHUNG! CHUNG! with four college-aged guys watching “the ballgame” on TV)

College Guy #1: Baby Bird! Woooo!
CG #2: Did you see the Oklahoma St. game?
CG #3: Heh, 30-foot bank at the buzzer.
CG #4: Man, when is this guy going to lose his raggedy-ass mustache?
CG #1: After he goes Numero Uno in the draft!
CG #4: No way! Dude got no hops, no speed…
CG #1: You just can’t give a white man no props, can you?!
CG #4: He’s a good COLLEGE ball player. Period.

Then their TV gets shot by a stray bullet through the wall in the room next door, allowing the following exchange to take place (after they ducked and cringed for 3 seconds):

CG #2: What the hell?
CG #1: (whiny voice) I don’t wanna miss the end this game…
CG #4: Daaaamn. Somebody shot our TV.
(cut to detectives on the scene.)

Pup: this was the opening scenario that “revealed” the crime to be solved and prosecuted on the show. The college guys were watching the game, a stray bullet fired from the room next next door goes through the wall and hits their TV. Cut to the cops in the room next door looking at a dead body of a private milatry contractor. Alas, the show did not build on the opening scene; it ended up being a revenge killing of this contractor, stemming from the death of one of his group members when they were on a job in Iraq.
