Seeing the trailer for the new Will Ferrell movie "Semi-Pro" got me thinking about the old Amercian Basketball Association. All I remember about the league came from the backs of old comic books: guys with big afros making a sales pitch for the red, white, and blue ball.
This of course started me thinking about what cartoon character would look funny with an afro. Thus Patrick Starfish with a big 'fro.
(what can I say, my brain works in strange ways)
