Yoga with Psycho T: A Girlfriend’s Report

An hour ago, I got this text from my girlfriend:

"Omg Tyler Hansboro is in my yoga class."

As many readers know, I have a special affinity for the big fella who never lost in Cameron. Normally, I would've been at this class with her, but a knee injury suffered last night while playing ping pong has me sidelined. DAMN YOU, CURS'ED LIFE!

I told her to remember EVERYTHING, but I think the text arrived late. Still, she came away with some good details. Here now is her full report of the episode I'm calling

A Heartfelt Tribute to Pyscho-Chi

(Props to @chrisalyss for the wordlplay.)


So I'm waiting in the lobby a few minutes before class starts, and a really tall guy with a dark-haired friend came in. He walked to the desk, and the woman there asked if he'd ever been to the studio before.

"Yeah, I've been a couple times," he said.

"What's your first name?" she asked.


"Last name?"


She began to type his name into the computer, and a confused look came over her face.

"Hamsborough?" she asked. "Like H-a-m-s?"

He corrected her, and went into the yoga studio. He was in the back row, but there wasn't much room because the class was crowded. The teacher showed him a good spot to set up so he'd have some space. He started to lay out his mat, but she brought a new one over.

"Use this," she said. "It's much longer."

So Psycho T, with his extra-long mat, began the class. I was in the front of the class, so I only got to see him when the teacher had us change direction a few times during class. Here's what I picked up:

1 – He can touch his toes. For such a tall guy, that was impressive to me.

2 – Although he didn't seem like the most flexible guy in the world, I give him credit for trying every pose.

After class, I thought about trying to get a picture of him, but he and his friend took off pretty fast. The only other thing to report is that he was polite and didn't have any diva-ish special requests or anything like that. Strangely enough, we did a pose called "Goddess with cactus arms" that looked almost exactly like this:

All in all, I give him 8 out of 10 Yoga stars.


Thanks, girlfriend! If there's one thing we've learned from this story, it's that we should all start calling him "Hamsborough." Or just "ole hamsy."

      Alan, they probably thought he was a new shipment of white tuna.

    I never liked the guy as a player, but sat next to him and his g-f a few years ago at a restaurant in ChapHill. I was impressed when he held his lady’s handbag for her while she chatted with friends. (She even complimented my shoes. Hard to hate on that!)

    one time Rasheed Wallace got his bucket of chicken nuggets before me. And I ordered mine first! Oh, this terribly unfair world!!!
