Gilbert Arenas’s sneakers and other images from the week that was

This is the collection of sneakers Gilbert Arenas is giving away on Twitter. It comes via @thesneakerchamp and, which has more details on the giveaway. It also reminds me, there are images every week that maybe don’t deserve a full post but certainly deserve a moment’s recognition. And so, this post is for them. Starting with:

Hey look, it’s Anthony Armstrong posing with Tiger Woods. One has occasionally gotten angry about being locked out, and the other plays football. Also, Anthony Armstrong is funny. Image via the Skins Blog, which also has a great item in which Chris Cooley admits to an elaborate series of prank phone calls involving John Elway, John Fox, Tim Tebow and Carson Palmer. I’ve actually listened to a Chris Cooley prank phone call, and it was amazing.

Hey look, Teddy won! And was disqualified for riding a Segway. I can’t decide if I want this all to go away or not. Image via Big League Stew. Also, Let Teddy Win points out that Teddy’s recent rumored Memorial Day success prompted a huge outpouring of national Teddy coverage. I’ll just link to one more of the items, in which longtime Bog reader Mike Holden argues that the Nats need to leverage the Teddy stuff into increased season ticket sales. Interesting argument.

Now, not all these images are from this week, but they still are worth spotlighting. Like this Fios TV description that notes an interview with the great Bill Walsh about his great Redskins Super Bowl team. Bizarre. It comes from @Mastro72.

Speaking of bizarre, here’s a Nicklas Backstrom No. 52 jersey that was apparently for sale at a local sporting goods store. I don’t remember which store or who sent me this, but thanks, and that’s weird.

Speaking of weird, this image from Jim Larranaga’s Twitter account is absolutely ancient, but still frightening. Just doesn’t look right, at all.

Here’s a note Greivis Vasquez left for Chick Hernandez at his Comcast SportsNet desk. That’s awesome. It comes via Larry Duvall.

And finally, this is a Lizard in a Redskins jersey. More Skins Blog handiwork.

Speaking of the Skins, this article on NFL clubs possibly letting its teams cover seats to avoid TV blackouts was interesting to me. No image, though. Just imagine some for yourself.
