Randomness - 30th Edition (Brief update on the Dan Gilbert offer.)

I got a shout out last Sunday on an article about the Dan Gilbert comments. Plenty has been written about it, and the subsequent invite to play and/or coach for the Washington Generals. But this is definitely one of the better ones. And one that pays respect to the Generals. Read it HERE!

Detroit Daily Deals had a promotion for tickets to the Washington Generals vs Harlem Globetrotters game on December 26th. (although given current happening it's possibly the Generals won't be playing under that name by then.) It was not really anything new but it had some clever remarks and puns among the usual press release fare most issue when promotion their sales. So I thought I would give them their due. If you want to read it, CLICK HERE!

Dan Gilberts invite to join the Washington Generals turned out to be a good PR move for the Generals whether or not he accepts it. As sports writers can't stop talking about it.

While there isn't any real news, a spokesman for the Cavilliers apparently said Gilbert wasn't going to comment. It baffles me that he will put his foot in his mouth with the comment that all started it. But apparently he find commenting on this offer to be going too far. He is a strange, strange man. Although it should be noted that many think this is a tongue in cheek invite, and it most is. Although as regulars on this blog know they have a whole routine for Guest Generals and even guest coaches. So if Gilbert were to accept they could make good on the offer and give the man some good press especially with the proposed discount the Generals offered. Gilbert either doesn't realize the Generals are semi-serious on this offer, or doesn't care. To read a bit more on this you can CLICK HERE!

And in closing, here is a brief video of the recent game from the Global Select's military tour in Fleet Activities Sasebo
