Gilbert Sleeps at the VC

One of the better blog posts of all time. Just unbelievable. He must have known everyone was about to obsess about football, and he's trying to bring them back. Oh, and he mentions Ovechkin's new blog:

As far as his blog goes, anybody can have a blog -- monkeys can have blogs -- but if it's not good or funny than it's not good or funny. The problem with athletes getting blogs now is that they get blogs thinking they can hide away from the media, but, no, you still have to talk to the media. It's just something that's added to put fans in your everyday life, that's all. You give yourself a little bit of a human side.

It's true, anyone can have a blog. I mean, even Svrluga has one. Anyhow, the story about how Gil got kicked out of his girlfriend's car over an insane argument about yogurt and then had to walk from 16th and Constitution to the VC in shoes a size too small because they matched his outfit is way too good not to be read in full. I'm telling you, go read it. Now. A snippet:

I think all men should do this when they have a disagreement. This is Relationship 101. When you have a fight with "the other," don't answer their calls and don't answer their pages. That usually gets the point across that you're not talking to them. So, I held out for seven days. I went on strike for seven days and stayed at the gym for seven days. I slept in the gym. They got nice couches in there and it just kept me in the gym working on my knee and stuff.

He also talks about fantasy leagues and a new Redskins-colored Gil Zero. Like I said, he knows our attention is shifting, and he doesn't want to lose us.

Can you imagine that call to the EA reps about the whole Canada event?

EA Rep: And you don't have your passport because?
Gil: I can't go home.
EA Rep: And why can't you go home?
Gil: I can't lose. I'm on strike.
EA Rep: What?
Gil: Just trust me. Oh hey, by the way, they don't have blankets here in the gym. Do you think you could stop by and bring some-
EA Rep: No.

We need to school Gil on a proper DC steak. Morton's blows.

I love you as a 'baller'!Your game is 2nd to none! But as a lover giving advise, you are going to cause people a lot of grief. If you want to be a real man as your blog suggest, you find ways to communicate and work out your diffrences!!! Dud, all of us don't have some 'comfy'couch in a gym to go!

Stick to 'Ballin' baby; That's where we see you as an authority! Not A Love God!

'Peace Out' and may you have great success this up-comming year!
