Don't Make Me Give You the Skiles Face!
So, in the time when we weren't dressed up and attending a wedding, I drove myself insane trying to get a screen capture of the perfect "Skiles Face" - if you watch the Bulls, you know what I am talking about. It's when Scott Skiles bows his head and raises his hand to his face, like "Gaaaaaaah! You IDIOTS!" It's like anger, shame and disgust in one sweet encapsulated gesture. I could not get our computer to do it - so this is a sort-of Skiles face. Meanwhile I'll be obsessively checking Google Images to see if I can find a better one, since I can't seem to make one.
I named my fantasy NBA team SkilesFace, because I am so committed to the term. In fact, I would love to make "Skiles Face" the new "Gas Face." The Gas Face of the aughts or whatever. So the nominees for this week's SkilesFace awards are...
- The guy in the same league as me who thought I would take Kyle Korver or Eddy Curry in a trade. Excuse me, I'm no fantasy basketball trash collector.
- The person who whacked off my side mirror casing on Artesian and didn't leave a note. You get the Skiles Face.
- Myself, for being overserved on Saturday night and behaving like a drunken ass.
And the winner is....?
