Way Too Much Gay on the Slog This Weekend…

posted by on November 5 at 20:18 PM

So, I’m posting about sports.

In particular, I’m posting about Gilbert Arenas.

And of course, there is nothing gay about Gilbert Arenas, who scored 44 points last night and, according to an AP wire story titled “Arenas Erupts in Wizards Win Over Celtics” :

emerged in a huge blue robe, the hood pulled low over his face. He said he was trying to look like a wizard.


And, it goes without saying, that there’s nothing gay about the fact that the only thing keeping me sane these days is a 6’ 4” 24-year-old man who runs around in shorts with other muscle-bound men for a living.

44 points, people.

Good Manners Count, Fnarf (check Lineout). Maybe you should say something nice in defense of this stupid post by Josh. Nepotism? Poor Mr Fight. Tomorrow he'll be typing his posts with boxing gloves on.

1st Wizard: You sunk my battleship!
2nd Wizard: That wasn't your battleship.
1st Wizard: Yeah, you still shouldn't have sunk that battleship, though.

And the Wizards still can't guard anyone. Second round of playoffs, tops.

Whatever, J.R. Good teams with no real defense--hello, Suns--are going to do it up this year.

Also, Josh, I read that quote on you linked to and the content's the same. Content no longer on

Other delightful Gilbert facts:
- wears size-13 shoes on his size-14 1/2 feet because he's afraid of making his feet look too big
- his pregame superstitions include always eating a meal from Boston Market, parking his car in the same spot, listening to the same music in the same order and tickling teammate Antawn Jamison's armpit before the opening tip-off
- once took a shower during halftime against San Antonio -- in his uniform and sneakers -- and then scored 24 points in the second half.
- trained himself to sleep on the couch, because he doesn't like women touching him.

- said that he got himself in shape for training camp this year with a week of boot camp with "a military dude in San Francisco."
- once attempted a free throw in a regular season game by bouncing the shot off the floor, missing badly.
- before every game, hides a teammate's jersey somewhere in the locker room to makes him look for it.
- wears No. 0 because, he says, he was supposed to get zero minutes at the University of Arizona.
- had workers install tents in various rooms in his home to simulate high altitude conditions and brings a portable tent to sleep in on the road.
- plays online video poker during halftime
- once ate 12 hamburgers in a single sitting
- was talked into buying a colon cleanser by a late-night infomercial, rationalizing "I just got talked into it. I'm like, Man, he makes it sound so good."

And he's a Big Brother to a DC youth who lost his family in a fire.

Anyone notice Dwayne Wade's outie in GQ?
