Photo Hilarity: Now That’s What I Call a ‘Cock Block’

Purdue snapped a three game losing streak earlier this week when the Boilermakers beat Illinois in Champaign. In the process, Boiler guard E’Twaun Moore lent further proof to the old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words.

He also gave us today’s edition of Photo Hilarity of the Day.

As you can see, Moore clearly has taken to Matt Painter’s credo of playing tough, physical defense. Demetri McCamey of the Fighting Illini, however, is probably wishing that Moore’s defense didn’t involve E’Twaun grabbing (or tickling, not exactly sure…he is from Purdue after all) McCamey in his twig and berries while the Illinois guard attempts a jump shot.

Not sure if McCamey made the shot or not – although from the look of horror on his face, I’m not sure how he’d have the concentration to do so – but perhaps we should a column in the scorebook for “cock blocks” next to actual blocks when Purdue is on town.

Here is the bigger version of the picture, with a big tip to Jimmy Traina and today’s AM Hot Clicks for bringing this picture to my attention. I expect some good comments on this one.

  1. I can't decide if he's checking him for a hernia or going for a reach around.

    • Well, from the picture it is difficult tell if McCamey is turning his head, but he certainly could be coughing. Although it would appear to be a pretty violent and painful cough if that's the case.

  2. WOW.LOL!
    Look at that expression on his face….
