Buzz That Was: Triple The Fun
In case you were too busy trying to perfect your Manning Face in the mirror and missed out on sports, we've got you covered. Here's everything you missed last night.
A classic, in some corners
No. 16 Iowa State topped No. 19 Oklahoma State in triple overtime, 98-97, Monday night. It was the Cyclones' first win in Stillwater since March of 1988. To put that in perspective, no one on the roster was even born yet and Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" was an actual hit song (and "Rick rolling" was just a flicker in your mother's eye). Led by DeAndre Kane's 26 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists, Iowa State rose to the occasion and improved to 5-4 in Big 12 play. I'm just going to let "SportsCenter" break this game down for you because, you know, that's what they do.
While Kane was undoubtedly a hero to Cyclones fans everywhere, Cowboys fans clearly didn't have the same feelings -- as one man showed after the game.
How did he do that?
The Denver Nuggets topped the Los Angeles Clippers 116-115 behind Randy Foye's absolutely insane buzzer beater. How this ball went in the basket, from well beyond the 3-point arc, should be studied in a science class or something.
His teammate Malcolm Smith got the trip to Disney World, but Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson proved who the real superstar is Monday night. The Super Bowl winner sat courtside at the Philadelphia 76ers-Brooklyn Nets game next to… Jay-Z and Beyonce. If that doesn't say A list, I don't know what does.
Wilson also appeared on the "Late Show with David Letterman" Monday night. Clearly he's still a little new to this big-time star thing; he wore the exact same outfit to both events, but we'll let it slide.
Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah was ejected in the third quarter of Monday's game against the Sacramento Kings after picking up his second technical foul. He was totally cool with it and left the court with smiles and kisses for the crowd. In the words of Mark Cuban, PSYCH! It was more like a scene from "Half Baked" that I cannot quote any part of here.
He apologized to the referees after the game. Presumably after realizing how big his fine will be. The Kings won, 99-70.
Go figure, Dude
If you've ever wanted to see 1998 Olympic gold medalist Tara Lipinski perform a figure skating routine as The Dude from the "The Big Lebowski," then clearly you were the one that suggested it to Jimmy Fallon. Here's "The Big Lipinski," complete with bathrobe and a White Russian.
