Morning Look: Caron Dancing and Popping

Remember when I wrote about that charity basketball game featuring the most bloggable list of athletes I've ever seen? Well, it was Saturday. Some of the headliners--Clinton Portis, DeShawn Stevenson, Chad Johnson, Gary Payton--weren't technically there. Some of the replacements--Andray Blatche--weren't technically bloggable athletes.

But there were plenty of highlights, which I'll get to in a few hours. Trust me, you should have gone.

The A-1 top-of-the-line highlight, of course, is pictured below, in video nabbed by the wonderful ladies at D.C. Fab, who also have a wonderful photo gallery. Caron Butler, smartly deciding not to risk his limbs playing basketball against Shawne Merriman, coached the "Wizards" team, along with co-coaches Melyssa Ford--whose clothes couldn't stop her body parts, they could only try to contain them--and R&B singer Tiffany Evans. At halftime, Evans, a little sprite in pink, ran out to midcourt to do her halftime show, a performance of "Promise Ring."

"Where's Caron?" she asked of her fellow coach. He had vanished, so she started singing. Then Caron appeared, came out to the middle of the court, and did this. It's a good day when Caron Butler completely outshines Terrell Owens.

"Tiffany wanted me to come out there, and she called me out," he told me after the game. "I went out there, I had a good time. I was dancing, I was popping and everything, so I really enjoyed it. I'm a natural dancer. You know, I'm from the Midwest, so I know how to do a little bit of everything."
