How B-Lloyd is Like Gilbert

While the serious reporters must continue to point out that Brandon Lloyd's on-field production is maybe less than it might be in the best of all possible worlds (JLC: "I'd go with Thrash as my No. 3 WR against the Eagles") I still say he's positive blog fodder for the indefinite future.

The latest evidence?


Washington Redskin Brandon Lloyd To Host exclusive Xbox 360 halo3 House Party For Teammates.

In addition to the friendly competition that will take place among teammates, Lloyd will battle NFL stars Carson Palmer of the Cincinnati Bengals and Alex Smith of the San Francisco 49ers, remotely from their home cities over Xbox LIVE. Both Palmer and Smith are also huge fans of the game.

Hmmmm, Halo, Halo. Any other blog-worthy local athletes have a Halo fix? I suppose if Gilbert played B-Lloyd, he'd be a 378-kill favorite, if that's how Halo betting lines are configured. But yeah, B-Lloyd is a gamer. First time that particular sentence has ever been written.

Speaking of Gilbert and his Halo team, Final Boss, I think I never mentioned this. It's from a June e-mail from a video game PR person, concerning one of Gilbert's gamers:

I thought you might be interested in hearing that MLG will be announcing that it has just signed Michael "Strongside" Cavanaugh from team Final Boss (sponsored by Gilbert Arenas) to a 3 year $250k deal....

Strongside is truly the embodiment of the aspiration that all Major League Gamers dream of. This is the 13th deal of this kind that MLG has signed over the last year (currently all members of Teams Final Boss, Carbon and Str8Rippin have the $250 k deals).

Yeah, that's right, dude pals around with NBA superstars and has a three-year $250k deal to play video games, and he's like 14 years old or something like that. Meanwhile, I write a blog about marginally successful NFL wide receivers.
