"Dancing, dancing," is what my 1.5 year old daught says as she gyrates around. I really don't know where she got it, but she wiggles her hips in ways usually only seen in rap videos. Occassionally, the missus watches MTV, but there's never any videos on there, so I'm at loss.
Anyway, my laziness was recently called out, so I thought I'd put something up about the Suns Dancers.
More narcisscistic stories, first, though. We were on vacation a couple of weeks ago in Carlsbad, CA (N San Diego) and eating dinner at a place called Pizza Port. They have decent local brews and its a pretty fun place. So, after dinner and a few beers (none for the kids), we decide to let the baby walk around a bit. She climbs on the table (kids tend to do those things, and it didn't seem like a big deal since the tables are essentially picnic benches) and starts dancing ... to Warrant's Cherry Pie ... like Bobbie Brown.
Here's a link to the video for you pervs persons too young to remember.
Back to the dancers. You can vote here, and the fine print says that fan voting is worth 25% of the decision. I'd like to be able to say that I watched the videos to determine who was actually the best dancer, but who has the time to do that?
Granted, this is not as cool as thedirty.com or Steve Nash/Dirk Nowitzki fanfic, but it was enough to pull me away from that stuff.
There are some kinda cool stories out there about the dancers. They do actually work hard and stuff, and many have regular jobs and career aspirations. I do also appreciate the fact that, although the outfits don't leave much to the imagination, they are not on the sluttier side of things. Have you seen some of those other outfits/costumes out there?
I also know some pro dancers and its really hard just to be average at it -- even if you've got talent. I'm torn between my caveman-chauvinism and the knowledge that it truly is not easy work. Why would somebody do that? Work so hard just to be objectified? And you guys thought Zeno said some tough stuff to understand ...
I might poke around and link some stories about the dancers. I might also throw up some thoughts for discussion (or just soap-box yelling). After all, what are we going to do for the next 55 days? Watch baseball?
In some basketball-related news, Dragic still might have a shot at coming over here. Although, I think the article says he's currently the backup PG on his Spanish team:
The biggest factor in getting Dragic to Phoenix now seems to be Tau's ability to find a backup point guard to replace him.
Am I reading that right? Isn't that a bad thing for the Suns? I was kind of figuring he was some sort of star in Europe.
