Bill Bellamy - Hall of Famer

Via The Onion

LOS ANGELES—In what many agreed was perhaps the surest bet in all of sports, former Violators player, coach, and all-around legend Bill Bellamy was elected to the Rock ‘N’ Jock Basketball Hall of Fame Tuesday.
Bellamy, who was the first player ever to receive 100 percent of the vote, leads a 2009 Hall of Fame class that includes former Blossom star Joey Lawrence, Mark Curry, and Shawn Kemp, as well as Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, chosen for their legendary 1991 halftime performance of “Good Vibrations.”

Coolio and Isaiah Rider were also selected by the Rock ‘N’ Jock Veterans Committee, which consists of Kenny Lofton and Boyz II Men.

Former Bricklayer Dean Cain, who received only 5 percent of the vote, was snubbed for the eighth consecutive year and is no longer eligible for induction.

    This is the best Onion article I’ve read in a minute. I used to love the Rock n Jock specials. I kind of wish they would bring them back.

    Love the 50 point basket jokes.
