Hey, everybody, it's the old blank stare from Timmeh. Isn't that funny? It's a joke about how he never shows emotion, even though those who follow the team knows that the big man certainly knows how to cut loose when it really matters, (see: Game 1 versus the Suns in 2008.)

But even if he's got a killer sense of humor that only regularly shows up in those often hilarious HEB commercials, I recently saw something from him that's I'd never see before. No, it wasn't the up-and-under variation he uncorked in the 1st quarter of the win over Memphis on Saturday. It was what came afterwards that was unprecedented.
