Brilliant. There’s no better way to gain a competitive advantage than grabbing a handful of your opponent’s Johnson. It’s unclear from the video whether or not Newcastle’s Korbin Sims was licking his lips while he gripped Willie Mason’s kielbasa, but I choose to believe he was, and any differing opinion falls of deaf ears. Mason reacted to his former teammate cupping his meat and potatoes and was very light-hearted about the incident. Like almost too light-hearted.
“Offended? Please. I think it’s hilarious.” I hope he doesn’t [get charged for the incident] because me and Korbin are really good mates and I think it was unlucky because of the timing of it all.”
“I knew what he was doing. I was talking to him as he was doing it. I didn’t even flinch. It was quite funny to me. He’s just a good young kid and I would hope that nothing is done because of it. It’s just two good teammates from the last three years having a good old … just having a good reacquaintance.”
Sims’ tactic wasn’t effective, as Newcastle lost the match 30-10 at the hands of Manly, so maybe I won’t try to make out with my opponent at my next men’s league basketball game.
