Quite a last 24 hours for Punch-Drunk Wolves. Andy G is in Chicago. I’m leaving today for Manila. And Anthony Bennett.
Allow me to humblebrag for a moment.
As I was getting home from work yesterday, I got an email from Jon Wallace, who guest-blogged a story recently on the Wizards’ draft strategy.
Jon wrote to me and Andy G:
Did you guys see the picture on Anthony Bennett’s instagram? http://instagram.com/p/ae2FzoqVWY/
Later, at 8:21 Eastern , Jon wrote back again, saying:
At which time, I figured he was playing an unfunny joke and sending a spam porno link.
Not cool. I clicked through anyway.
And found this lede:
Following a dinner Wednesday night with members of the Washington Wizards organization, Anthony Bennett made his way back to a downtown hotel. After taking a few steps up the building stairs, the forward out of UNLV heard someone call his name.
UNLV forward Anthony Bennett sold his versatile ability during a two-day visit with the Wizards (Getty Images).
A shocked Bennett glanced over to see a fan clutching about five photos for him to sign, the last of which was a photoshopped image of Bennett and Georgetown swingman Otto Porter Jr. in front of the U.S. Capitol building.
“It was real cool; I had to take one,” a smiling Bennett recalled Thursday following his interview with the Wizards at Verizon Center. “I signed one and said. ‘Yo, let me get the other one.’ ”
Bennett also confirmed that he dug the pic on his Twitter account:

So we retweeted Bennett and followed with this:
Glad Anthony Bennett liked the photoshop work http://t.co/nZQoRNxdDJ

So, Anthony Bennett dug our photoshop. And so it made the WaPo. Slow news day or great photoshop? I leave that to you.
But this just goes to show, the Internet is a small, small world.
