Andray Blatche Sings 'Dirty Dancing' After Wizards Win Over Bobcats

You can forgive Andray Blatche if he decided to celebrate the Wizards' second two-game winning streak of the 2011 season. You can also forgive him, I think, if he decided to do so by singing. 

But can you forgive Andray Blatche for celebrating the Wizards' second two-game winning streak of the 2011 season by singing this song?

Blatche has scored 61 points and grabbed 36 rebounds in wins over Cleveland and Charlotte, showing what he is capable of when he mixes his talents with effort. After the game, he was in the locker room belting out the theme the movie, "Dirty Dancing."

"I've...had...the time of my life," Blatche sang at the top of his lungs. "And I never felt this way before."

First of all, Blatche singing the "Dirty Dancing" song means that he needs to hit some really high notes that he has no chance of hitting. Could Blatche's out-of-tune singing affect the rhythm of the Wizards' locker room? THESE QUESTIONS NEED ANSWERS!

Second of all - look at those lyrics again. Blatche is singing that he is having the time of his life and he's never felt this way before after his team won two games against Cleveland and Charlotte. Such innocent words, such unintentional irony. Poor Dray. Now, this is all going to be spun out of context as sarcastic bloggers make snarky jokes about what constitutes Blatche's "time of my life."

(Hey, don't look at me! I'm just the messenger).
