Basketball, anyone?
Last night, the Timberwolves and San Antonio Spurs were warming up before what was supposed to be the first regular season NBA game to be played in Mexico when smoke filled Mexico City Arena.

The haze was the result of some sort of generator fire, and not too long after the players exited the court, the game, which was billed as a "home" game for the T-Wolves, was called off. It'll be rescheduled for sometime later this year in Minneapolis.

The fiasco inspired KSTP sports director Joe Schmit to offer up this awesome wisecrack about an ex-Wolf who's known for enjoying the sticky icky: Schmit was on such a roll last night, we can't help but wonder whether he himself was smoking something... not that that'd be a bad thing when it helps you come up with LOL-worthy material like this: In fact, some might say Mexico City Arena wasn't the only thing on fire last night!

I'm surprised they didn't play. Mexico City residents are used to bad pollution. It must have been the fragile players whining and crying when the smoke got in their eyes.

I thought we got rid of Michael Beasley and his reefer habit?
