With the NBA All Star Game finishing up as a blowout and Gilbert Arenas having an off night, he decided to put on a show. During one of the commercial breaks, a group of flying Elvis guys game out to put on one of those dunking off trampoline shows. During the whole performance, Gilbert and Vince Carter were eyeing up the trampolines and looking mischievious. When the Elvis guys finished, Gilbert decided it was his turn.
This is the kind of stuff that has made All Star Weekend in Vegas such a damn good time.
Much more on the game to come at some point. As you can, tell I had sick seats.
UPDATE: From Gilbert's own blog:
We were sitting there in the timeout watching them Elvis guys dunk, and
my big mouth, I was like, “Man, I can do that better than them.” And
then they missed a couple so I was like, “When they finish up, I’m
going to go do it.”
Shaq was like, “Yeah, right.” He said, “I’ll put $100,000 in your foundation.”
I was like, $100,000 or get in trouble by David Stern?

Oh man, I’ll take that fine. So I did it for my Zer0 2 Her0 charity.
It was great though. Between the legs…Yea-ahhh!
I used to practice those trampoline dunks back at Golden State. I can
flip and everything. But I didn’t want to flip and crack my neck.
NEW YORK -- Chase Edmonds ran for 152 yards, added 49 yards receiving, and scored four total touchdowns to help lead Fordham to a 31-17 win over Penn on Saturday.
Kevin Anderson threw for 231 yards and one TD and Austin Longi added 92 yards receiving for the Rams (2-1).
Edmonds scored three times in the first half and Fordham opened up a 24-10 lead at halftime.
Penn responded late in the third on an Alek Torgersen 2-yard plunge which cut the score to 24-17. The Quakers (0-2) had an opportunity to tie it late but were turned away on downs at the Fordham 27-yard line.
Edmonds added his fourth score on the ensuing drive to put the game out of reach.
Torgersen had 125 yards passing for Penn.
Fordham has won three straight in the series and is now 25-2 at home since 2012, third best in FCS during that time frame.
Jorge Alfaro is behind the plate for the Phillies tonight and bats eighth. Alfaro has appeared in just four games since being called up earlier this month, and has just one hit in 10 at-bats.
Tommy Joseph is back in the lineup and batting fifth. Pete Mackanin has said that Ryan Howard would get a lot of playing time during the last few games, but it is Joseph who gets the start tonight. Joseph is batting just .154 against the Mets this season.
Odubel Herrera, who has been hitting well in September, will remain in the three spot. He has two homers and is batting .391 over the past week. Herrera has two hits in six at-bats against Mets' starter Sean Gilmartin.
