Woops! "Trick Knee" Causes Baker Withdrawal, Endorsement of Branston

Posted on Thu, Mar 19, 2009 at 4:00 AM

One of the most widely anticipated matchups in the Flyer's "Memphis Celebrity Madness" tournament was the showdown between the paper's own Jackson Baker and John Branston (West Bracket, Position 7, "Pick the Flyer Writer".

Regrettably, that game, regarded by knowledgeable touts as key to the tournament’s ultimate winner, has been canceled, due to the withdrawal of Baker, whose trick knee, incurred over the years in the course of obstructing political ignorance and wickedness, has acted up at just the wrong time.

"And let me confess, that Branston would have been a toughie. He's the guy to beat, and I didn't want to be responsible for taking him out!" said Baker. "Besides that, I think we should have some solidarity here in Flyerville. Let's give the big guy a bye before he goes up against Thaddeus or Chris Peck or somebody like that."
