Like manna from the Meme Gods, we give you Sad Yao. This picture, taken during last night's fourth-straight Rockets loss, conveys all the sadness of a Sylvia Plath poem and those Sarah McLachlan ASPCA commercials combined.

The injured center has been out the past few weeks with a bum foot, which is not spelling success for the rest of the Rocketboys' season. There is even alarmist word that he is headed to retirement. As it stands we are now 3-10. Even the Texans have won more games, and the Texans play like Danny O'Shea's Little Giants.

And so we bring you Sad Yao. Not be confused with Sad Keanu. Chin up, Yao, you could be Matt Schaub.
