DukeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s menÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s basketball team, off to an 11-1 start and ranked No. 9 in the AP poll, remains hopelessly and pathetically gay, say many college basketball observers across the country.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Oh, man. FrigginÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Duke,Ã¢â‚¬Â said North Carolina alum Jack Tankersley. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even stand to look at them. TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re so unbelievably ... whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the word ... theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re so unbelievably gay. Just totally gay.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Maryland student Joshua Benjamin says everything about Duke is gay.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Just look at their roster,Ã¢â‚¬Â he says. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Paulus? Gay. Jon Scheyer? Gay. Gerald Henderson? Gay. DeMarcus Nelson? Gay. Their coaches? Krzyzewski? Gay to the max. Chris Collins? Gay. Wojciechowski? King of the gays. Their mascot? Gay. Cameron Crazies? Gay. Krzyzewskiville? More gay than San Francisco. Gay, gay, gay, gay, gay. All of it gay.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Benjamin said that he does not mean everyone associated with Duke is homosexual.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Oh, no. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t mean it in that way,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I just mean ... you know Ã¢â‚¬â€œ gay. But IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure most of them actually are gay, if that changes anything. Not that thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s anything wrong with that. It would just make them both gay AND gay. Either way, I think we can definitely agree that theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re definitely gay. Uber gay.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Paulus says he and his teammates are routinely told how gay they are.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Yeah, you hear it all the time from opposing crowds,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Paulus. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Hey, Paulus! YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re gay! YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re a total gayboy.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ I mean, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not very creative. But we get it a lot. Apparently people see us as gay. I also get a lot of people telling me I look like I have an extra chromosome or that I look like IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m retarded. But IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve always gotten that, even before I came to Duke. The gay stuff didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t pick up until I arrived here.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Despite that, most Duke watchers say Paulus is the current Duke player who most exudes that trademark Duke gayness.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Oh, yeah. Totally,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Tankersley. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Just like Christian Laettner. Just like Wojciechowski when he played. Just like JJ Redick. It has been passed down from team to team. One guy slaps the floor and the next guy picks it up by slapping the floor after him. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just the way they walk. The way they complain to the refs. They way they celebrate. They way they cry. The way they wear their jerseys. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just so ... incredibly ... annoying. And also gay.Ã¢â‚¬Â
