Casual Dress Friday: Sad News

It's a Casual Dress Friday here at the Skeet Thrower and I have some sad news to bring you today. #2 on the BCS Man-Crush List - Mr. Gilbert Arenas - jacked up his knee on Wednesday night. Effectively this means he is done for the season.

I hold a special place in my heart for Gilbert. I think it can be best summed up by Champoin Kinds.

Ok, maybe its not that serious, but he has carried me to first place in both of my fantasy basketball leagues and that's pretty serious. Unfortunately, his untimely injury could derail me in both leagues. Furthermore, we won't get to see him in any playoff action. This is sad news, indeed.

Normally, I would wish death upon Gerald Wallace for what he did to you, Gilbert (much like I wish death on China for what they did to Bauer...ha ha, just kidding China, don't torture me, please), but since he's on both of my fantasy teams as well, I just can't do that.

In a strange way, I blame myself for his knee injury. I watched Eragon Wednesday night. It was easily one of the worst movies I have seen in a while (although I should have known it was going to be crappy - the new Avril did the theme song for the movie). I think somehow my poor choice to watch that movie may have led to Gilbert getting jacked in the knee. So, I'm sorry, Gilbert.

Honestly, that Eregon movie was a trainwreck. I couldn't go more than 5 minutes without asking what in the hell was going on. At least it didn't have Sandra Oh. It had some crazy medieval stuff in it, but if you want to see a horse and some armor, just watch this clip of the Amazing Race. It's a lot shorter and it has a midget. I'm not sure what the premise of that show is (other than the fact that it is a freaking race), but anytime you dress up a midget in armor, you've got me hooked.

Speaking of trainwrecks, here is a guy singing the Alf theme.

I have watched that thing like 10 times. I think that guy is a real world Michael Scott.

Have a good weekend.

I'd never seen that Anchorman cut scene. Classic.

It's actually from Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie which is basically comprised of cut scenes from Anchorman.

It is significantly better than it is rated on IMDB (although not nearly as good as the original).
