French Fist Pumps, and G-Wiz

I left the Wizards game at halftime last night because I finally decided that after 11 consecutive hours without sunlight in the bowels of the Verizon Center, I had had enough. Luckily, two readers have stepped up with their Bog-esque observations. I didn't ask their permission to use these items, so I'll leave them nameless.

Reader One: So I was at the game last night and found the antics of Sonic Johan Petro quite entertaining. After every made shot, he would raise his arm in the air and do this random fist-pump. I'm all for fist-pumps and demonstrations of emotion if you nail a 30 footer at the buzzer, but he was doing it after every shot. Four-foot jumper - fist pump. Wide open layup - fist pump. I did not see him fist pump, however, when he fouled out after 14 minutes of game action, but I was waiting for a vet to pull him aside and tell him to act like he's been there before.

My friend and I spent the game fist-pumping for equally vital developments: going to the bathroom and finding an open urinal - fist pump; guy three rows over gets clocked by free Chipotle burrito they throw into crowd - fist pump; friend buying Gilbert Arenas jersey at stand but not looking close enough and getting home to find out he is proud owner of Calvin Booth jersey - fist pump.

My comment: After my unsuccessful cheese conversation with Boris Diaw, I had pledged to myself that every time a French-born player visited the Verizon Center and I was in the building, I would ask the French-born player for a few words about cheese. Johan Petro is French. I failed. Tomorrow: Tony Parker.

Reader Two: I was at the Wizards vs SuperSonics game last night and noticed G-Wiz had what seemed to be a bodyguard, what was up with that?! Did something happen? It was a taller man in a suit with sunglasses following G-Wiz everywhere he went.

My comment: It's Washington. You're nobody if you don't have a bodyguard. Although I don't know why the bodyguard wouldn't be G-Man. Dude is ripped. And how is it 2007 and the Wizards still don't have any in-game entertainers known as the G-Unit?

the whacky looking swingman who's starting in place of Rashard Lewis is also of the french persuasion.

Yeah, G-Wiz had this kinda men-in-black escore with sunglasses. During a couple of breaks, when G-Wiz danced in the aisles 'round the 106 107 section, the guy would dance too. I don't know what's up with that. G-Wiz understudy?

Fun fact about the game last night:

After Butler stole the ball and got a buzzer-beater to end the third quarter, he jumped up on the press table again.

Hmm, I thought it saw this: "After Butler stole the ball and got a buzzer-beater to end the third quarter, he jumped up on the press table again." But the jumping part -- he skipped high, and from my nosebleed vantage point I thought he went atop the table, but last night's Comcast clips indicate that did not occur.
