Gilbert's Face Still All Over This Building

It's Wizards media day, and for another year, a giant image of the injured Gilberet adorns the side of the Verizon Center. (Although not, notably, the front page of "> That's reserved for Antawn Jamison and Dave Johnson.)

Last year, you might remember, Wiz media day was the scene of Brendan Haywood discussing peace in our time ("Ali and Frazier only fought three times, that's got to be the end for me and Etan") and Gilbert Arenas introducing the world to Gazo the Pranksta. Who knew then that Etan Thomas would miss the entire season, Gilbert would miss most of it, and Gazo the Pranksta would never make it out of the development stages? Who would have guessed that, one year later, Wiz PR guy Zack Bolno--who was thrusting stuffed Gazos at everyone in sight--would have decamped for Redskins Park, and DeShawn Stevenson of all people would be the featured attraction?

Check back later for who said what about the important issues of the day, which, judging from past experience, will likely begin and end with facial hair developments. Oh, and I figured out whose image should replace Gilbert on the side of this building. Gazo's, duh.

I can get with the character part, and the connection.

Why don't they just say "Come See DC's Favorite Blogger Baller?"

Is it a good or bad thing that 'Cursed' also starts with a 'C'?

They should change the slogan on that poster to "Character, Commitment, Cortisone."

Or "Character, Commitment, Connell."
