Geoff Calkins

And I do recognize I'm the only blue hair who actually showed up at FedExForum tonight.

Geoff Calkins

If they can have this Stalley character rapping, why not let @Kedren1 give it a go?

Geoff Calkins

Here's the point: The players are having an absolute blast. And @JohnMartin929 is singing along. Honest.

Geoff Calkins

"I got Priscilla, I got vanilla. I'm running down Elvis Presley Blvd," which is pretty much worth the ($5) price of admission

Geoff Calkins

I'm willing to consider this possibility. RT @joesills: @Geoff Calkins this is awesome Geoff

Geoff Calkins

It absolutely helps. RT @AndrewFord22: @Geoff Calkins It might not help much, but having Rick Ross there can in no way *hurt*

Geoff Calkins

"I want y'all to know that when I said I love Memphis, I mean it." -- Ross, standing in front of recruits, earning his bread.

Geoff Calkins

What if they just took the fifty grand they paid Ross and split it between the recruits?

Geoff Calkins

My God, I hope Memphis gets a bazillion recruits out of this night because it's otherwise preposterous.

Chris Vernon

Yeah, Rick Ross is here at Memphis Madness http://t.co/KzSMmU2avt

Geoff Calkins

Figures. Andre Turner hit half-court shot to give his team last-second lead.

Pete Pranica

How many folks notice the St. Elmo's Fire music on the Rob Lowe @DIRECTV spot?

Geoff Calkins

Best dance, easily, goes to @a_nichols33. But, then, not many participated. It's a walking bunch. Which is appropriate.

Geoff Calkins

Guy has a point. RT @ndavis82: @Geoff Calkins shut up you senile old man. ;)

Geoff Calkins

Mind you, men's team hasn't shown up. And it's possible there's a natural hangover after the bed making contest.

Geoff Calkins

Is it heresy to say the building feels dead?

Geoff Calkins

They're having a bed making contest. The dude is losing. #ThatsEntertainment

Geoff Calkins

The Alabama-dynasty-is-over thing was always dumb.

Geoff Calkins

So @GaryParrishCBS gets free wings for the year? America, where the rich get richer.

Geoff Calkins

That's because he didn't take it himself. RT @Scott Cacciola: @Geoff Calkins @GaryParrishCBS Seems high.

Geoff Calkins

Lamar Chance just informed the media that, per NCAA rules, we are not allowed to interview @GaryParrishCBS at this event.

Geoff Calkins

Right behind D. Rose's SAT RT @Scott Cacciola: @Geoff Calkins @GaryParrishCBS Where does this rank on Memphis' all-time great sports moments?

Geoff Calkins

Damn. @GaryParrishCBS drooled on the gift card. http://t.co/jSgVUMJxn8

Geoff Calkins

Here's @GaryParrishCBS and his championship form. http://t.co/Y6wiqKo6DC

Geoff Calkins

Without @Chris Vernon to slow him down, @GaryParrishCBS emerges triumphant. "I'm a GD champion," he says.

Geoff Calkins

Parrish wins! Parrish wins! Wingstop for the entire year. "Count the bones," he said. @GaryParrishCBS

Pete Pranica

Nice job by @espnbob and crew handling the Trevor Davis injury. Respectful, factual, measured. Well-done.

Geoff Calkins

"Gary Parrish, of course, from CBS Radio." -- the introduction.

Geoff Calkins

So @GaryParrishCBS was just summoned from press row for the wing eating contest against @Quincy Pondexter and the defending champion.

Jordan Adams

Unlike hammer 30 mil can't hurt me !!!

Chris Vernon

Saw the Bama deal comin from mile away, but got zero answers on the Hogs. Crazy to me after watchin them this year

Chris Vernon

so much for these afternoon SEC games. total destructions

Chris Vernon

arkansas, i walk to get the mail and the game ended? not cool, hogs

Chris Vernon

Chris Vernon

how is it that Gurley is out and this Nick Chubb looks like he could start for anyone? geez

Chris Vernon

there goes my chubb. gank

Chris Vernon

Kenny FILL. MY. POCKETS. WITH. MONEY. (Vinnie Verno voice)

Beno Udrih

Had a great lunch with @kostakoufos @hogandhominy today!!! It was so good!!! Go try it out...u won't regret it! #901 http://t.co/i3r3crAmfX

Chris Vernon

eassssssssy. A&M wants no part of these hammers Bama is dishin out

Chris Vernon

WOW TJ Yeldon. hitting that stick

Chris Vernon

Iowa, you broke my heart

Chris Vernon

Weisman for Iowa is a tank. Reminds me of Alstott

Chris Vernon

Griffey seems like he would be a real joy to hang out with

Chip Crain

Grizz shoot 54% from the field and 36% from 3. Gasol led Memphis with 15. Conley with 7 assist. Next game is a trip to Dallas Monday night

Pete Pranica

I will also add that this team will be even more fun to watch than previous editions of the Grizzlies. Just have a feeling...

Pete Pranica

Also a good night for @Quincy Pondexter who put up 13 points in 15 minutes. This is a big season for him.

Pete Pranica

Not sure exactly how much you end up learning from a blowout like this, other than to confirm that @Marc Gasol is playing at high level ...

Chip Crain

112-72 and the Grizz take the win over the Club team from Brazil Framengo.

Pete Pranica

And it's over ... @Memphis Grizzlies win it easily 112-72 over Flamengo (Brazil). Marc Gasol scores 15, Conley 7 assists. 45 points off TOs.

Chip Crain

108-72 not sure what the takeaway from this game will be. Starters we good but Flamengo made some runs early then talent took over.

Pete Pranica

Flamengo just 2 for 15 from the arc in the second half. Winding down here with Grizz up 38.

Chip Crain

Wow Stoked just made a save by using one of the Flamengo player's face to bounce the ball off.... ouch

Chip Crain

Thanks to all of those that have stuck in with us on this game. @Marc Gasol looks focused and ready for a huge contract year.

Pete Pranica

Here's a stat you won't see in a regular season NBA game: Flamengo with 29 turnovers, resulting in 43 Memphis points. And we have 6:00 left.

Chip Crain

102-66 Grizz with 6:09 remaining

Chip Crain

Stokes with a steal and he is fresh and just having fun in this game.

Pete Pranica

Jarnell Stokes putting in good minutes with five quick points and a steal. 100-66 with seven minutes left.

Chip Crain

Stokes gets the rebound and scores off the Calathes miss, 5 quick points and he looks awesome sporting the Headband!

Chip Crain

Stokes scores on the spin around and one.

Chip Crain

Stokes enters the game for the Grizz so both rookies will see playing time tonight.

Pete Pranica

Patrick Christopher on the floor with Calathes, Adams, Earl Clark and Jarnell Stokes. Grizz up 32 with 8 minutes left.

Chip Crain

Koufos, Adams, Calathes, Clark and Christopher on the floor for the Grizz

Chip Crain

91-63 and anyone left at the game is probably smiling and possibly full of BBQ Nachos

Chip Crain

Ouch Adams misses a 3 just a bit outside..... #Airball

Chip Crain

and Jason Wallace gets hit in the head by the loose ball, hey J, next time @Chris Vernon should have saved you!

Pete Pranica

Just discussed the new instant replay procedure for flagrant and clear path fouls with referee Brent Barnaky. #knowtherules

Chip Crain

Looks like a Flamengo player got his hand injured on that play... hate that and more reason to take everyone out.

Chip Crain

Double K with the grab on the miss and puts it back in.

Chip Crain

Tay has not played tonight, last year Coach Joerger rested the veteran most of the pre-season, so no surprises there.

Pete Pranica

Three in the books at FedExForum. 88-54 @Memphis Grizzlies ... Grizz shooting 59% and Flamengo 34%. I suspect most of the starters are done.

Chip Crain

End of the 3rd and the starters are most likely done in this one. Grizz up huge 86-54.

Pete Pranica

... followed by Nick Calathes ... interested to see how second unit fares in a blowout situation.

Chip Crain

87-52 and this Flamengo team can shoot the 3

Chip Crain

Jordan Adams checks in, and this should be fun

Pete Pranica

Ladies and gentlemen: Jordan Adams enters the game ....

Pete Pranica

Jon Leuer reverse dunks, @Memphis Grizzlies up 42. Let's see how second unit brings it. Struggled in first half.

Pete Pranica

Grizzlies outscoring Flamengo 23-4 in the 3rd quarter. Flamengo 2 of 15.

Chip Crain

Gasol with 15 and 9 and one rebound away from a double-double, but probably done for the night in this blow out 78-45 late in the 3rd

Pete Pranica

I know a lot of folks passed on this game, but it's been a fun watch. Tony Allen is doing wondrous, head-scratching Tony Allen things.

Chip Crain

Beno with 6 and back to the line to shoot more freethrows

Pete Pranica

Flamengo shooting a ice-cold 1 for 12 to start the third, 0 for 4 from three. Grizzlies up 35.

Chip Crain

Flamengo has gone cold and 72-43 Grizz.... not sure how much the starters will keep playing

Pete Pranica

Tony Allen now has four steals and 14 points. Grizz are up 31, 7:35 3qtr. Griz shooting 59%, Flamengo down to 38% (1 for 7 in 3qtr).

Chip Crain

Just think, Jordan Adams hasn't seen the floor tonight in this game... I can't wait for the fun he will bring to the regular season

Chip Crain

Scoring for this starting lineup is very balanced. We just have to tighten up the rotations. The 2 rookies yet to play tonight

Chip Crain

TA has 4 fouls early in the 3rd.

Chip Crain

Gasol, best passing big man in possibly the history of the NBA.... just fun to watch his skills

Chip Crain

Yummmm BBQ Nachos... http://t.co/Tz2itVhs5c

Pete Pranica

For the Grizzlies, no Calathes yet, nor Jordan Adams or Tayshaun Prince FWIW. Second half about to begin....

Chip Crain

I believe @EricHasseltine is missing @eperry328 at this point in the radio broadcast

Chip Crain

People at the game should tweet pics of their food....

Chip Crain

Man I bet that Pizza and BBQ nachos in @FedExForum are off the hook tonight... yummmmmm

Chip Crain

While we ponder the rotations, Grizz fan be like...... http://t.co/WTJpN5trzR

Chip Crain

36 points in the paint, solid D... now to eliminate the turnovers
