Kirk Hinrich's athletic glasses

By Dan Steinberg


Not a month after posting a long emotional rant about how all that matters in sports are the wins and losses, I'm not presenting to you blurry images of Kirk Hinrich in his new, doctor-mandated athletic glasses. Consistency is the G-Wiz of little bloggers, as they say.

"I had an eye exam and it was recommended that I wear them, just for protection," Hinrich told reporters on Monday. "Today was the first day with them. Definitely not used to them yet, so just trying to get adjusted to wearing them."

In other non-wins-and-losses Wizards news, Nick Young was one of eight athletes asked by ESPN the Magazine to rank, on a scale of 1-to-10, how often people ask them for loans. His was the best answer.

"Ten," he told the Mag. "They ask for $5,000, even $25,000. I say, 'Talk to the left ear, not the right. The left ear gives out only a few hundred.' "
