We haven’t really been on top of giving our readers very many funny clips lately, and when I saw this one today, I couldn’t resist posting it. We are fond of all things that come from Asia since three of us are Asian, and this guy in the clip had the spirit of the Panda with him in this race (literally), because that’s how a Panda would attack these hurdles too. I’m not sure if it was because he couldn’t jump or if it was some kind of special Olympics event, but whatever his reasons were for plowing through the hurdles, he brightened up my otherwise rainy and gloomy Monday. I couldn’t stop laughing when he knocked over the hurdle in the lane next to him right at the end making it so the other guy couldn’t even finish. As far as I can tell from homeboy’s celebration after crossing the finish line he must have won!!

There’s two things you’ll find a lot of on Doin Work: stuff about the Golden State Warriors, and stuff about Asians. Naturally, I’ve got to talk about the Warriors newest addition, Jeremy Lin. The W’s signed the D-League sensation today much to the delight of the fans. Obviously the Bay Area is home to plenty of Asians, including Lin himself, who grew up across the Bay in Palo Alto. In numerous interviews on countless local sports channels, Lin admitted that he was hoping he’d get drafted by the team, but all hopes were lost when the Warriors ultimately traded out of the second round in the draft. Fate played its hand though, and the Taiwanese Ivy Leaguer will be donning the blue and gold this season.
It really was a long time coming for a team that could so easily win over THOUSANDS of fans instantly just by adding an Asian. Any team will tell you they’re more concerned with the players on the floor than the number of fans in the seats, but that’s not true. Clearly the W’s weren’t that concerned with fielding a good team, but they always have an entertaining one. Why not add the best Asian you can find? I’ve long felt like the team should make a play for Yao, or more realistically, Yi, just for the excitement factor. I’m not sure how big of a role he’ll play on the team, but he sure will provide some excitement when he’s on the floor. Just check out how these Vegas Summer League fans were reacting to his play….
I’ve heard of many athlete’s taking up different types of conditioning regiments, and know that some turn to different types of fighter training to get their stamina up. Whether it’s boxing or martial arts keeping them agile and strong for the rigors of their sport they do what they need to stay at the top. I’ve never really seen it go the other way though. You don’t often get to see a well rounded martial arts guy playing non boxing/MMA sports. Anyways, whoever this guy above is, he took it to a new level with his nun chuck abilities. He shows us he can hit for power in the batting cages. I don’t think there’s a pitch that’s out of his zone with that kind of unorthodox swing. He’s got a different type of nun chuck when he feels like hitting the links. I wonder if he has a full set? Amazingly his swing still looks better Charles Barkley’s does! If he wants to pimp a chick, he can even impress the ladies with his badminton skills. If he was on your team for anything, you know he’d be able to help you celebrate in style opening champagne bottles for the team. He’s the full package in a multi-sport athlete. If West Eastern State can find the Ivan Brothers then why not look for some talented young kid in some crazy martial arts community in Asia!
In lieu of booking a family trip to China with MCeezy, I thought I’d bring the ol goat on a tightrope back to relevance! I know that people think us Asians are weird, but within our weirdness we have harnessed ways to teach animals to climb stairs, and walk a tightrope! I hope we see some stuff this entertaining while we’re there!
So, this appeared on the Big Lead today…. must give credit where it’s due. It is too funny not to share here as well though. This is a great example of Asians smashing stereotypes. Just when everyone thinks they’re going to break out in a huge martial arts melee, they instead tuck a leg up flamingo-style and dance it out instead. Dance Dance Revolution really has taken Asian culture in a new direction. In the old days, fatalities surely would’ve occured here, as a few of these guys would undoubtedly use a broken bat as a sword or start hurling donuts every which way. Proud day to be Asian indeed.
