Eric Snow on DeShawn and DeShawn
I'm mostly posting this for the benefit of the Washington Wizards ace PR staffers who wonder why I ask the things I ask, and who posit that no one in the world is actually interested in the things I ask. Like, my philosophy is that my readers care about the fact that this series has a starting guard named DeShawn, and a reserve guard married to a DeShawn. And luckily, the Akron Beacon Journal agrees; this is from Brian Windhorst's continually excellent coverage, today. (Although Windhorst, by directing his readers to my mild-mannered look at Cleveland fans, has brought down hailstorms of bog hatred. Go read these comments. Cleveland: I love you. Really. Your PR staff just tried to give me a free slurpee. How can I hate that?)
Some media outlets in Washington are having fun with the coincidence that Eric Snow's wife is named DeShawn and so is Wizards starting guard DeShawn Stevenson.
"I ain't no girl,'' Stevenson told the Washington Post. "There's more DeShawn guys than girls."
Snow, who celebrated his 34th birthday with a Michigan State Sparty-shaped cake after practice Tuesday, said the names aren't quite the same.
"He pronounces his Da-Shawn, I think; my wife is Dee-Shawn,"' Snow said. "But my wife actually noticed it when she saw me going over my scouting report.''
But she didn't say anything about the fact that you're also facing a Darius, which is the name of your second son? Clearly I need to find DeShawn Snow tonight. Anyhow, Wizards employees, this is my point: people care.
