Dirk Nowitzki is Santa's Helper!
On Friday, we headed to the giant Christmas tree in Sundance Square to participate in WFAA's Santa's Helpers Toy Drive. Like hundreds of others, we were dropping of unwrapped toys, and participating in festivities. Participants included personalities from WFAA Channel 8 (including Troy Dungan and Pete Delkus), Dallas Maverick's dancers and also the Mav's Maniacs, representatives from Dr. Pepper and Chik-fil-a, and 'a surprise visit by a Dallas Maverick.' The Maverick's occasionally do meet-and-greets in downtown Fort Worth, and they always send us one of the NBA's finest, like a 3rd-string bench warmer who only gets playing time when we're winning/losing by 30+.
Turns out, this time, they sent Dirk Nowitzki.
In the season's spirit of peace on earth and good will towards men, I garnered every ounce of my strength and did not tell Dirk that we should have traded him for Kobe 4 years ago when we had the chance.
