Something 'Bout the Water in D.C.
Sure I'm biased, and sure there are plenty of weirdo showmen in the NFL (Ocho Cinco) and NBA (Superman Howard). But you could at least make a credible argument that the three weirdest superstars in the NFL, NBA and NHL over the past several years make their homes in this city.
Still, as has often been mentioned, we've been sort of flagging in recent months. Gilbert Arenas is being neither a superstar nor weird. And Clinton Portis gets more headlines for combative radio interviews than for dressing up like Flamenco instructors.
So leave it to the area's most compelling team to produce the latest evening of sunglassed, costumed, play-acting All-Star weirdness. Gilbert made a spectacle of himself during an All-Star Weekend (jumping off a trampoline). Clinton made a spectacle of himself with shades (Southeast Jerome and friends). Last night, Ovi combined the two.
All that's missing is a nickname. Southeast Sasha? Agent Fyodor? Ocho/Vosyem? As his Twitter feed put it, "Did ya like it?"
