Skankilicious has DC ties. :(

Crud.

Skankilicious (Antonella, for those new to the party) has ties to Washington, DC.  I don’t know if I can handle that.  She’s my #2 villain of the season (behind Perla-hater Gina), and the last thing I want to hear is an entire city rooting for her.

From today’s Washington Post:

D.C. Gets a Voice on ‘Idol’


Finally — our own “American Idol” contestant to root for! Antonella Barba , a junior at Catholic University, is one of the 24 finalists announced on the hit show Wednesday night.For those who’ve only been watching casually, Barba is the coltish 20-year-old from New Jersey who aced a joint first tryout in N.Y.C. with best friend Amanda Coluccio . During auditions in Hollywood, Coluccio was caught on reality-cam declaring that she beat out another girl “because God likes good people.” Well, pride goeth before a fall, and all that — Barba made the finals; Coluccio did not.

More about Barba: She’s majoring in architecture; she plays piano and violin; she wears men’s deodorant because “girls’ deodorant isn’t strong enough.” And we’re told her friends will be gathering in the campus student center to watch her live TV debut next week — on Ash Wednesday.

At least Amanda is off the show–for now.  I blame Double A (especially Amanda’s slutty behavior) for Baylie being cut.  One A is better than A.  But the only A they deserve is The Scarlet Letter!

Agent Zero, All Star Starter

In honor of Gilbert Arenas being named a starter for the Eastern Conference in the upcoming NBA All-Star Game, I give you plenty of Gilbert Goodness!  Here are all of his Wizards game-winning shots.  And there are PLENTY!  Agent Zero never disappoints!

Easterns Motors – Where Your Job Is Your Credit!

This is quite possibly the catchiest commerical in recent memory.  From bad lip-syncing (LaVar Arrington) to bad car-dancing (Clinton Portis) to bad-snitching (Carmelo Anthony–don’t worry if you don’t get the joke), it’s got it all.

You will have this stuck in your head for at least seven weeks.  Thank me later.

Alexander Ovechkin is the Man (Behind Agent Zero)

One year and one day ago, Alexander Ovechkin scored perhaps the most outstanding hockey goal of all time.  That leads to a discussion:  Who is DC’s “MAN” right now, Gilbert Arenas or Alexander Ovechkin? 

Hard to argue against either one, but I think Agent Zero takes the crown for now…

Take a look at the awesomeness that is Ovechkin: 

Agent Zero.

There is nobody in the NBA more intriguing than Gilbert Arenas.  And he went OFF yesterday.  He scored 51 points, setting a new Verizon Center record, against the Utah Jazz, one of the top teams in the league.  Oh, and he hit the game winning 3-point shot at the buzzer.
