Oh, and when it comes to invoking the all-powerful name of Yao, don't forget the Tibetan monk-like chant to be intoned before every game:
"Yeeeeaaaooowww-eeeooowwwww--eeeeaaaoooooowwwwww"
:lol:


GEEEEEEEZ, he must be very young then when that photo was shot.

Look at the current day James Taylor !! OMG !! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :wink:

I only remember 2 great songs of his: You've Got A Friend (wrote by Carole King) and Fire and Rain back in the 70's. It was just like yesterday !!!!
:shock: :oops: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Those are my two personal favorites. And I don't care how much hair he has on his head... he'll always be sexy!

So, you didn't say a word about my chant... I guess you have to hear it to appreciate it :?

Sweet Baby James isn't a song (I think). It's James Taylor's nick... since we're on the subject of nicknames....

LOL !!!! I thought you REALLY know James Taylor. :shock: :shock: :shock: :wink: Sweet Baby James is one of James Taylor's most popular songs, but that I don't remember how to sing. It was the title and title song for his very successful and popular album in 1970 in which he wrote a lot of songs (including the classic Fire and Rain) that drew upon folk, soul, and rock influences by augmenting his acoustic guitar and soothing vocals with laid-back accompaniment (which included equally influential singer-songwriter insurrectionist Carole King on piano).

I checked that out on Internet. The song was written as a lullabye for JT's new-born nephew James, son of his brother Alex. He composed part of it in the car while driving to see him for the first time.

woah... I just learned more about James Taylor than I ever knew. You're right.. I'm no fan :oops: I'm so embarrassed.
But I did know about the Carole King bit. I grew up listening to her album Tapestry. She's one of the best.

"good night ya' moonlight ladies, won't you let me go down in my dreams.....humblahblah....sweet baby james, it was the blahhumblahdada and the turnpike blahumdadumblah............" - great tune! Anyway, Yao's nickname should be: "Chairman Yao" or "the Ultimate Weapon", or maybe "the Chinese Fromwaydowntown" - I like that one the best! Or maybe "That Huge Forinr."

Aceman..........out
