My wife looves giraffes, so when we first started dating, I took her to her first close up experience with one. This is still one of my favorite photos of her - it was pure bliss, followed by buckets of happy tears.

...damn why has it never occurred to me how huge giraffe heads are?

Are giraffes soft?

Where does one go to get a head tap with a giraffe? I have a friend who is obsessed with them and I would love to take her to meet one. :)

Their toy store goes out of business?

He is gonna be our president one day.

Well deserved and I loved the shout out to the fans. He understands us.

Username doesn't check out.

Our man is having one hell of a year!! I know these awards are silly but I'm so happy for him. His speech was great, too - to the point and heartfelt.

ETA: I also loved all the Eagles players giving him a standing O! Trey especially, leaping to his feet (and BG almost beating him to the punch even on an injured foot)!

Crazy Idea: Kawhi should enter Canada illegally

Crazy Idea: Kawhi should enter Canada illegally

Kawhi clearly doesn't want to play in Toronto. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Toronto is in Canada. Of course, if Kawhi really doesn't want to play this year in Toronto, he could just get "injured" and sit another year out, hoping that LA is still willing to pay a player who throws a tantrum when he doesn't get what he wants. But what if I told you there was a way Kawhi could both not play in Toronto this year AND sign and play most of the season for LA...

Kawhi's uncle should convince Kawhi to cross into Canada illegally and claim asylum.

Kawhi will be arrested. His refugee claim will be evaluated and quickly denied. He will not be charged, but will be sent back to the US and banned from re-entering the country or obtaining a visa.

Wont he go to prison for that?

No. Canada is not the US and is not big on discouraging people fleeing horrifying conditions from searching for a better life in Canada. That doesn't mean they won't say "No" if your case is BS, though.

Why not just commit a felony in the US?

Felonies that carry less than a 5 year prison sentence do not make you ineligible to enter Canada. Kawhi would probably rather spend 1 year in Toronto than 5 years in prison. Plus, you can be granted a waiver to enter Canada, which is how other convicted felons are able to play.

What happens next?

Kawhi will either try to enter Canada to report to Toronto and be denied OR the will be accepted. If he is allowed in, he simply has to leave and re-enter illegally again and apply for asylum again. Applying for asylum alone might do it. Canadians are nice, but it's more of a fool-me-once scenario.

At this point, the Raptors will be faced with either having Kawhi only available for away games or severing his contract due to his conduct. Now, if they sever his contract, I'm not sure whether they retain his rights or not but they certainly won't be interested in re-signing him. After some period of no contract being tendered, I assume he becomes a free agent and can sign with LA.

Caveats

Kawhi can't re-enter Canada. As long as Toronto doesn't make the Finals (which they won't without him) this doesn't seem to be a huge issue. Adam Silver won't like it. This is a bigger issue but NBA players have done worse things that actually hurt people and they still have jobs. His bargaining position with LA is seriously affected if they know he's willing to break the law to play for them. Then again, if I'm Magic I may admire the dedication.

Excellent shitpost

Kawhi would probably rather spend 1 year in Toronto than 5 years in prison.

Not cool man

This is supposed to be a good day.

I can't speak for Kawhi, but my limit in Toronto would be 2-3 years before taking the prison. Kawhi's a Cali boy, so he might have a rougher time.

It probably is him

“Take it. Print it. Fuck it. Ship it. “

He does because it's him. There was a thread about this a long time ago and I think it was even at the Kinkos near where I use to live.

I'm aware it's him, just saying he almost perfectly matches the, 'his', print
