DeShawn, Pech, Donjulio and Capri Sun

Capri Sun!!!!!! (Joel Richardson - For TWP)

Two more Wizards notes I forgot to include last week.

1) Oleksiy Pecherov likes to talk on the practice court. A lot. He jabbers constantly. He says Eddie Jordan told him that he's a big man, and big men need to talk. I told him he talks very loudly.

"Thank you," he said.

Problem is, he's sort of difficult to understand when he's out there shouting incessantly. I asked teammates whether they could understand him.

"No, never," DeShawn Stevenson said. "No English. I can't even tell you what he says."

"Darius's the only one that understands him," Caron Butler said. "Just ask Antonio what he calls him. [Pech] tried to say his name, but he said it loud and fast."

So it sounded like?

"Donjulio or something," Butler said.

Other players confirmed that Pech did, indeed, call Antonio Daniels "Donjulio." Someone make a t-shirt.

2) It was suggested to me several times last week that Gilbert, off in the heady land of the transcribed 4,300-word blog post, might never again provide full blog content to lowly MSM bloggers. And that DeShawn "Locksmith" Stevenson might have to fill the void for the foreseeable future. Thus, here's your DeShawn Stevenson fact o' the day:

DeShawn Stevenson drinks up to 12 pouches of Capri Sun per day. He drinks two at a time. His favorite flavor is Wild Cherry. Also, he punctures the pouches from the bottom. He's been doing that since he was a little kid. I've never seen anyone puncture their Capri Sun pouches from the bottom, but it does seem like a classic middle school lunchroom technique. I pointed out that he is, in some sense, a grown man, and he nodded agreement.

"But I still do it," he said.
