Wanna Meet Gilbert Arenas Tomorrow?
adidas is opening a new store at the Tysons Corner Center tomorrow and Agent Wacky Pants Zero will be on hand to christen the digs.
Arenas will be signing autographs, competing with the fans from the free-throw line, and generally doing his thing.
The store ribbon cutting will be at noon, Gil has the floor for the next hour, which will surely breeze by, and then some D.C. United soc-cer players will be around from 2-3pm.
Normally, I might head to the festivities, take some pictures, perhaps heckle Gilbert some….nah, not really…..but since Tysons Corner is waaaaaay on ass out there (map below)……and I’m one of those cats who is from DC, DC….and I live sans auto (and loving it, plus I can tell the ladies I’m going green)…..and the Caps will be throwing down with the Rangers in their second playoff game at 1 pm…..I won’t be making the trip.
[BTW...the Wizards should be taken to task for being so ignorant about the Capitals....put on for your city and show them some support! - via DC Sports Bog]
So, if you go, have fun and all that.
Oh yea, holler at Mike Jones of the WaTimes about a contest to win Arenas jerseys and t-shirts.
That is all, carry on.
