Wednesday Question - 01/20/10

Generally, we are the "authors" of "content" around here - "here" being a blog and not a message board. Recognize, we do, that you've come here not to contribute, but to consume. Nevertheless, there is the sporadic occasion where, either for our benefit or for to exercise the thinkifiers of the masses, we ask you a question. Today's question is ...

Chris Warren:  Is he, also, a lil' bastid?

Wondering where Tuesday Question has been recently?  Yeah, I didn't think so.  But after the success of our most recent "Question" feature (the answer to which was, "Apparently it didn't matter"), I have certainly question even my ability to ask the right questions.  So, today's is semi-cryptic and subject to some interpretation.

Chris Warren remains the star of the Ole Miss basketball team.  Despite the dramatic game-clinchers by Eniel Polynice, the acrobatics of Terrico White, and the emergence of Zach Graham, this team still lives and dies - it seems - based on how well Chris Warren plays.  That has certainly been true in a negative way in losses to Mississippi State and Tennessee.

I think it is worthy of note that the leader of said basketball team is, similarly to the late, great leader of the 2009 football squad, a diminutive black man from Florida.  But is Warren, like McCluster, a lil bastid?  Implicit in the question is the subjective definition of "lil bastid."  What are the characteristics of the stereotypical lil bastid?  Has Warren's on-court performance matches - or is it likely to match - the comparative performance of the original lil bastid?  Will some Spirit poster not get this joke and tell me that my insidious suggestions about the details of the conception and birth - including the contemporaneous marital status of his mother, who is, no doubt, a fine woman - of Chris Warren are hurting the team and make me a bad Rebel?

You tell me.
