I promise you we’re going to talk all about the Huskies and Marquette in the coming days.
But first, to get your Monday started right, I give you this link sent to us by loyal reader Brian V. I know what you’re thinking. That’s a link to TyraShow.com. What the hell is wrong with you, sir?
Allow me to explain.
Take a look at the photo at the link I just gave you. Sitting second from right, directly next to host Tyra Banks, is a large African American man in a blue shirt. If you’re a Husky Basketball fan, that man should look familiar to you. In case the face doesn’t ring a bell, maybe the abs will. That is one Serge Angounou, former basketball player at Arizona State University and Dawg Pack fan favorite.
Serge, as you may recall, rose to fame as the guy who engaged in witty banter with the Dawg Pack before Husky games at Hec Ed. He was all about the show, and even went so far as to display his abs to the students at one point in time, inspiring catcalls of “Show us your abs!” for years to come.
As far as his appearance on Tyra goes, it turns out that Serge has taken a liking towards the older ladies as of late. A bona fide “Cougar Hunter,” Serge has netted himself a girlfriend-of-a-certain-age and is now famous for it.
According to a source who actually watches this show, Serge’s name was misspelled “Surge” on the episode (he’s not a defunct soda brand, ladies and gentleman), and he was described as a 26-year-old male from Arizona who plays pro basketball.
Unfortunately, Serge’s basketball career has stalled as of late. The 6’8″ power forward last played a game in the NBDL in April, 2009. In 78 career NBDL games, he has averaged 4.0 points and 3.5 rebounds per game. He is also the subject of this cryptic website entitled Salomon Serge Unlimited.
Though Serge is now a cult superstar with his television appearance, we want to wish him the very best in getting his basketball career back on track. If there was ever the perfect guy who exemplified everything you wanted in a happy-go-lucky villain-of-sorts, Serge is truly that person.
