Eddie Jordan's Stuffed Dog

The Jordan family.

I don't go to Wizards games any more, because I don't go to any games any more, but there are two possibilities for a Wizards postgame.

1) The Wizards lose, and it's really boring.

2) The Wizards win, and something bizarre inevitably happens.

Inevitably. It's like a 97 percent success rate. Here was Sunday's offering, courtesy of the AP's Joseph White:

More comedy from Jordan postgame: Accompanied by his young son, the coach put a small stuffed dog on Antonio Daniels' left shoulder while the guard was doing interviews in the locker room. "Class project," Jordan said before taking a picture. Said Daniels: "It's so hard to concentrate with a dog on my left shoulder."

Yes, the coach of the town's NBA franchise took a picture of a stuffed animal he had just placed on his starting point guard's shoulder during postgame interviews. I asked Wiz PR whiz Zack Bolno what this was all about, and he in turn asked Eddie Jordan.

"Oh, Andy the dog," Jordan said. Duh.

Anyhow, Jordan's daughter Skylar is a second grader at a local public elementary school, and as so many of elementary classes seem to do nowadays, Skylar's class has a sort of stuffed mascot, Andy the dog, who gets to go home with a different classmate every weekend, trips that are documented with photographic evidence. Last weekend was Skylar's turn, and she intended to bring Andy (or possibly Andi) to the Wiz-Hornets game.

But sadly, little Skylar came down with the flu, and so her older brother Jackson--a constant presence at the Verizon Center and possibly the cutest boy in America--took Andy the dog to what has to be that stuffed animal's first NBA contest. The dog posed for pictures with Antonio Daniels, Nick Young and Eddie Jordan's podium. I trust the little boys and girls in Skylar's second grade class are going to need a potty break when they see Andy the dog hanging out on Antonio Daniels's shoulder.
