Fox Sports Regional Sports Report: South Africa

Remember back in the day when FOX decided to scrap its National Sports Report in favor of a regional approach? Well, they came up with a series of oustanding commercials to promote their regional target. And now, I am bringing them back to you.  I present the third in a series of five: Fox Sports Regional Sports Report South Africa.

What would you call that? Running of the….?

Agent Zero Loses to Portland, Again

It’s been a while since I wrote about Gilbert (and checked in with his blog for that matter).  Probably because the last time I was there he was telling me he was going to score 50 against Portland and he wound up scoring 9 in a stinker.  It also most likely has to do with Gilbert’s crappy month of February in which he shot an embarrassingly poor 34.7% from the field.  But because he is the coolest athlete to ever lace up a pair, all is easily forgotten on my end.  Oh yeah, he’s also the subject of one of the best marketing campaigns by adidas (see the commercial below)

 

That is truly inspiring.

But man, Gilbert, you got me all pumped up last night in the final minute against Portland when you made both your free throws and the layup to keep it close.  And then you got the rebound on Jack’s missed FT, you went the length of the court, and when I thought you were going to sink the game-winning three pointer in front of the Portland crowd, you drove the lane and lofted up a floater that was five feet from the rim. Sooo disappointing!

The Wizards still lead the division (barely), and Miami is hot on the warpath.  Even with Antawn back, the Wizards don’t appear to be on the same level as Detroit or Cleveland — they really need to start stepping up their game during the playoffs — and Gilbert certainly can’t afford to throw up airballs for game-winners.

Anyways, while I’m on the subject of my favorite athlete EVA, here are some recent highlights from his blog:

  • He has a new son, Triple A – Alijah Amani Arenas
  • His new catch phrase is, “Don’t watch me, watch TV.” (which has nothing on Hibachi)
  • He won a blogging award (from the legendary Dan Shanoff)
  • He didn’t like getting double-teamed with Antawn and Caron out
  • He had to shower with Evian water in Minnesota

I love these too much. The best part is when they play the KO slap in slow-mo.
