Tim Hardaway may be in more hot water than we could possibly know: NBA commish David Stern was overheard making reservations for Elton John's "The Red Piano" while at the Las Vegas Review-Journal for a meeting. Sounds like someone's got John Amaechi's back.
Of course, Elton John's music appeals to people all across the sexual spectrum. Who didn't like that part in Almost Famous when everybody was all pissed at each other on the bus, then they sang "Tiny Dancer" and liked each other again? And there was that one commercial — I think it was for an airline, maybe — where "Rocket Man" played, and I may have cried a little. But it wasn't just because of the commercial. I had a lot of heavy stuff going on at the time.
Anyway, even though I'm more of a Blue Man Group sorta guy, I'm cool with Stern's decision. Right up until "Crocodile Rock" and "Benny and the Jets." Those songs are pieces of shit.
