Battle of the Car Commercials: Wiz vs. Pistons
As mentioned above, somewhat improbably, tonight's Wiz game could help determine whether the Pistons or Wizards have home-court advantage in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
For emphasis, let me repeat that. Somewhat improbably, tonight's Wiz game could help determine whether the Pistons or Wizards have home-court advantage in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Anyhow, there are countless subplots. For example, Rasheed returns to D.C. Here's an excerpt from a Richard Justice story during 'Sheed's rookie year in D.C.:
Wallace arrived from North Carolina with a reputation for being surly, and in two months has failed to prove it wrong with his scowling, explosive demeanor on the court. Coaches have warned Wallace on more than one occasion that it is easy to get a bad reputation, and that if he is perceived as a problem, the technical fouls will come more quickly. His reputation already might be a problem; he got his eighth in Seattle without uttering a word. He did, however, make an animated gesture that let the rest of the world know he thought the official had blown the call....
Wallace said: "They're gunning for me, but I'm not worried about that. I've just got to go out and play my game. At this point, even if I talk to them the way I'm talking to you now, they'll still give me a technical. I can't open my mouth."
Luckily, he's since solved that problem.
(Btw, first the blog gods gave us Kwame Brown Sucks, and now they've birthed I Detest Larry Hughes. What's next, Anthony Peeler Hates America? Chucky Atkins Gives Me Nose Bleeds? Awvee Storey is Satan? And thanks to YAYSports! for both.)
But the subplot I'm focusing on is the car commercials. Need4Sheed has video of a Chauncey Billups commercial for Ford, in which he says he shares several traits with Ford trucks: "Plenty tough, sexy, good looks and we're both beautiful inside." (Scroll down to see the clip.)
[Edit: I forgot to mention that I saw Antwaan Randle El at the Eastern's Auto Show booth last Friday night. The organizers had apparently determined that ARE would be unable to sign photographs of himself unless he was sandwiched between two pleasant young ladies whose valiant clothes were unable to keep all their body parts from spilling out in various places.]
