It was the Thunderdome from "Mad Max" or the coliseum from "Spartacus," if either Max or Sparty were two, middle-aged American men playing a slow-motion car-crash of half-court basketball for charity and political one upsmanship.

Conservative Texas Sen. Ted Cruz triumphed over liberal ABC late-night host/comedian Jimmy Kimmel with a hard-won 11-9 victory in the first Blobfish Basketball Classic at Texas Southern University's Health and Physical Education Arena Saturday. The event, which turned out to be a Coachella festival of air balls, missed shots and footwork that would make a sloth look like Usain Bolt, was sparked by Twitter trash-talk that started after Cruz posted a picture of himself supporting the Houston Rockets over the Golden State Warriors during Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals. Kimmel joked that Cruz resembled a blobfish, a not particularly attractive creature that dwells at the bottom of the ocean.

I did not support Ted Crus for the presidency.

But I have to say, he is more constructive these days.

This article, is pretty funny. Good job Ted Cruz.

Ted shows off his sense of humor in image 9 at the source although not all Freepers will appreciate it.

Afterwards, Kimmel says that this will not change anything, he will still call out Cruz on political issues.

Can you imagine what Kimmel would be saying if he had won? We all know that Cruz would have been as gracious in defeat as victory, but Kimmel would have been playing clips on his TV show constantly and using it as a way to ping on Cruz.

Isn't that what Democrats always say?

If these things are done in a good natured way with no sore losers fine. Justin Trudeau had a much ballyhooed boxing fight with a conservative member of parliament which he won some time before he became PM. Doesn’t mean his ideology is superior though.

What I’d give to play bammy in a one on one match. He’s about an inch taller but I’ve seen the dude shoot.

Please let us know when Ted faces Kimmel on the sands, “et gladii”...

That’s something I’d love to watch...And no “missio” permitted...
