Blake Griffin filled his All-Star Weekend with numerous activities, such as jumping over an automobile, sticking his elbow in a rim, and walking around the city of Los Angeles with his own personal gospel choir. I happen to do those things every weekend, but this is not about me. Well...it is, actually. My blog. My picture. So I take that sentence back. And I know what you're thinking...and no this is not an actual photograph. Even though Blake routinely wears the paper Steak n' Shake hats, this is actually an illustration I did in collaboration with http://www.gotemcoach.com/.
I'm almost ashamed of throwing random women's names in here in an attempt to get more hits...but not so much that I will stop. Keyword.....Rihanna.
Back to the story. Got Em held a Blake Griffin nickname contest, which apparently, he is in dire need of. "Milkshake" won out, so the good dude over at the site asked me to illustrate it. Now, just to be clear, I will probably never ever use that one, just because I'm not calling another grown man "Milkshake". But that's just a personal standard thing, don't let it affect your thought process on the matter. But I do respect and appreciate the reasoning behind it, which you can see here. Now there are of course, other popular, potential nicknames out there for the guy (Poster Boy, The Blake Show, Blake Superior, The Auburn Mamba, just to name a few), and those are all well and good, but I too, bring my own set of Blake Griffin nicknames to the table. They are as follows, in no particular order, and meant to be read quickly: Blake O' Bits, Dr. Blakenstein, Blake Killed Kenny, Tonka Truck, The Ultimate Swirlior, Swirl Jam, Griffitron, Herschel Walker's Workout, The Ruins of Babylon, Denny's Grand Slam, Double Dopplar, The Situation Times 2, Betty White on Acid....I could go on, but I don't want to drop too much verbal gold on America. Plus, I'm copyrighting the best ones. So if there's one thing we've learned today, it's that Blake Griffin has a bunch of nicknames, but only one that comes with a really cool picture. FACT.
Going to round this out with a Maria Menounos. All-Star heavy blog...and should have picked someone easier to spell, dear heavens.
