Wrestling with Long Wang..Not Just An Afternoon Endeavor
When the University of North Carolina goes out to recruit for athletes, apparently even hilariously suggestive names don't get in the way of a full scholarship.
Meet Long Wang, freshman wrestler for the Tar Heels and owner of the funniest athlete name since Mike Hunt.
I can only hope that his name in Chinese means something like "Walks Through Walls" but in English it means his life is full of shame and ridicule.
The only way his name could be funnier would be if his middle name was "Phuckin", in which case I would assume his parents are in fact, the funniest people ever to have lived.
If I were wrestling against this guy, I'd tell everyone in the stands to wait until he is introduced over the loudspeaker and do something like this...
Announcer: "Now wrestling at the 160lb. weight class, from Cary, NC: LONG WANG"
Opposing fans: "PROVE IT!"
I'm here all week folks.
