On the next episode of Chips and Dip/Tuck...

Agent Zero has surgery on his left medial meniscus, a potentially devastating blow to the Wizards' hopes of making John Hollinger look like a fool. Upon waking up after the procedure, Gil vows to score 90 points against his left knee -- a little payback for sidelining him for up to three months. Take that, knee! When the surgeon informs Zero that it is physically impossible to challenge one's own knee to a game of one-on-one, Zero grins, looks him in the eyes and says, softly, "Impossible is nothing."

That all made infinitely more sense in my head than Gilbert's new ad campaign, which is to say, it still really made no sense at all. Alas, the Wizards Bandwagon rolled on without Arenas, as Caron Butler (39 points) picked up the slack in an overtime win at Charlotte. Six straight. Can this last without Nacho? We'll see. In the meantime, I've changed my fantasy hoops team name to Gilbert's Meniscus. We'll tear you apart.
