The Rodney Harrison Memorial Weekly Award For Feats in Pantwearing is awarded to that individual who in the prior week has acted most in accordance to the highest standards of not being Tom Brady. This can be described as excellence in badassery, not skirt wearing and by extension successful pants-wearingship. The winner will receive the prestigious Dockers Trophy.

2nd Runner Up: Manu Ginobli
America is a melting pot, so I can without reservation honor Manu Ginobli for this fine example of pwnage.
Wow, this Kevin Durant guy must suck.
1st Runner Up: Jason Heyward
Homerism alert! This is what happens when I have to write the RHM. Baseballs #1 prospect, and my #1 cause of non-Tebow related sportsgasms, Jason Heyward reported to Spring Training this week. He promptly redefined what the Atlanta Braves thought human beings could do to a baseball. Heyward blasted a ball so far past the outfield wall that it nailed the assistant GM’s car. This led to the Braves having to go to the extraordinary measure of installing nets over the parking lot that was supposedly too far away for a human to hit a baseball too. Note that the Braves have been practicing here for years, with power hitters like Chipper Jones, Andruw Jones and Brian Mccann not having similar problems.
Some quotes from Heyward’s batting practice:
“But this … this is something different. The 245-pound Heyward hits them with such ferocity that the ball not only makes a different sound coming off the bat – as Bobby Cox, Tim Hudson and others have noted – but it also whistles past with a different sound when you’re standing between the dugout and first-base line. Seriously, it does. I noticed that yesterday when I was standing over there with my back turned, talking to someone. — Dave O’ Brien, Atlanta Journal Constituion
“His line drive is like the old Hank Aaron sound” —Bobby Cox
OMG I need a cold shower.
RHMWAFFIPW WINNER: Ryan Miller
This one was wasn’t even close. Somebody would have had to dunk on a 13 foot rim over a roid raging hippo, and then punched Skip Bayless in the face on live TV to even enter the conversation.
Ryan Miller defended your freedom to the tune of 43 MF’ing saves to lead the US of A in a shocking 5-3 upset of the evil empire of Canada. That is 43 Commie Bullets that Canada aimed directly at our non socialized medicine and right to bear arms.
For too long America’s Hat has been bullying our hockey players and hoarding all of the Moose(s?). And let’s not forget the cultural horrors of Celine Dion and Molson Ice we have had inflicted upon us. Ryan Miller stood tall against the soft spoken and disarmingly polite giant and exacted vengeance.
God bless America, and God Bless you Ryan Miller. Even the RHMWAFFIPW, sportings most prestigious award, is not enough for this valiant defense of our great nation. I propose some sort of congressionally funded hot chick blow job system, where each state donates 200 or 300 hundred really hot girls to a national pool whose job is to blow Ryan Miller whenever he wants for the next 10 years. Not that he will have any shortage of volunteers after this, anyways.
