So the suns have a 12th man that has been writing a diary for the past week or so on Suns.com. Sports Guy had a link to it this week. Actually, this is pretty darn funny:

He's sort of a funnier version of that Derek Hood guy, except he actually finds his way onto an NBA roster once an a while.

Funny stuff, though.

I had a buddy that was friends with the guy that was the 12th man for the Jordan led Bulls. Some guy from OSU. Nice gig-getting paid to sit on the bench and watch the best player in the history of the game 82+ times a year.

I saw him interviewed on ESPN (I think...if not, CNNSI) one time. The interviewer said something of the effect..."Surely you expect this team to do well this year right?"

Shirley then deadpanned, Yes I do and don't call me "surely" (Shirley).

It was a good laugh.
