Gil's an All-Star Starter

"A weird, good year," Gilbert calls it. And the best part of being an all-star starter, of course, is that he'll be able to do the Starters' Dance with Shaq.

The second-best part is that dude looks like the 7-year-old kids I just saw getting Chris Cooley's autograph, talking about how just two years ago he was trying to vote himself into the game and now he's actually starting.

The third-best part is that this dramatically increases the odds that I'm on a plane to Vegas in a couple weeks. Actually, that's probably the best part.

Dave you are a very good writer who captures the "quintessence" of Gil, if I may.

What delightful, boyish charm we saw in that clip. Kid in a candy store.

And what a delight for Washington. So many fans filling out ballots at games. We were all stubbornly adopting the underdog-not-gonna-take-it-anymore mentality.

It would have been a travesty of justice if Vince Carter beat him out. Frankly, I was assuming there'd be a travesty. So cool that there isn't.

Dave is Agent Steinbog's secret identity. To get the best quotes from unsuspecting Safeway shoppers he tells them his name is Dave Sternburg and he rights cheese articles for the times.

Take me and I can get a free suite at the Rio, Caesar's Palace, Harrah's, or the Flamingo. I don't actually need the rooms as I tend to play blackjack for 48hours straight and then pass out somewhere convenient.
