Some athletes, not satisfied with being better at a specific skill-set than 99% of the world, choose to blog as well. This is a look at their latest efforts.
Anytime Gilbert Arenas has a new entry, it's a special day here at the Athlete Blog Wrap-Up, but that is especially true today. In his blog last night, Gilbert tells the world that he is now engaged and how he did it. Apparently, Arenas has never asked a girl out in his life:
I have this statistic that I’ve never, ever asked a girl out and I didn’t want to change that. Never, ever. In life. I was like, man, I got to keep this streak going.
Gil wrote "Will you marry me?" on a paper, but above that put "Read out loud." Then when he hands it to her, he makes her read it out loud:
So she goes, “WILL YOU MARRY ME?” out loud so everybody could hear her.
It worked. It turns out she ended up asking me to marry her.
I was like, “Oh my God!!!” and started screaming like the girl who gets asked normally does.
“I can’t believe you asked me!!!! Of course I will!!! Oh my God, it’s been six long years, what took you so long???!!!??? Oh my God!!! This is unbelievable!!!!”
Arenas continues to blog about the engagement and a few other things. Certainly an enjoyable read, still the best athlete blog out there.
Annika Sorenstam is back to competition after three weeks off.
