"Awesome, babe, awesome!"

Spanish hoopster Rudy Fernandez is joining the Portland Trail Blazers this season. Don't get me wrong; just because I live here doesn’t mean I’m some myopic, hometown fan.

Actually, it does. And my myopia has really kicked in since seeing Fernandez slam on Dwight Howard at the Olympics.

Gotta love how the Spanish-speaking commentator switches to English for his, "Awesome, babe, awesome!" replay analysis.

He was destined to become the current All-Star that he is while playing for the....wait, who does he play for again? Is he still in the league? ...

But I'm sure he dazzle you with some highlights throughout the season (see also Jason Williams).
