Morning Look: Gilbert Arenas on the Bench
If it's election time, which it is, that means The Washington Post must fulfill its historic mission: to fact check the heck out of public figures. There's some sort of fact checking going on over here, but I'll take a swing at things myself. Below, read Gilbert Arenas's blog comments from late September:
I also think I've decided I'm not going to watch home games from the bench this year while I'm recovering. The fans who are watching the game don't deserve to see me sitting on the bench injured anymore. I'd rather them just not see me instead of seeing me sitting there in a suit...again.
It's more of a thing of, "Well, here we go again." I don't want that.
It's like going to the hospital and seeing somebody who you've known as strong for so long and they're weak now and you just look at them different, I don't want that. I'd rather just sit in the back and watch from the locker room or something.
On the road I'll sit there in my suit, but at home games I'm thinking about rehabbing in the background during games. I'll be at the Verizon Center though.
Well, there was some dude sitting on the Wizards bench last night who looked an awful lot like Gilbert Arenas. Legendary fashion maven and AP reporter Howard Fendrich provided this summary:
During a glittery pregame ceremony, Arenas was not introduced to the crowd. When play began, he sat on the sideline wearing a sports coat and brightly colored foullard.
Brightly colored foullard? That constitutes an Arenas highlight nowadays. Anyhow, one more bit of truth squading: what the hell happened in this picture below? Did all the Democrats leave their cell phones at home? Did Robert Novak show up to cheer for Juan Dixon? Did Etan Thomas and ACORN pay fake GOP texters as a scare tactic? Or do Republicans more easily part with standard text messaging rates? Because there's no way the home crowd at an NBA game in the country's most Democratic voting entity leans this far to the right.
(As for the game, nah, don't feel like going there. Sorry.)
