At the Miami Heat game Tuesday....
The Golden Oldies, time-out dancers with soft bellies, gray hair and jiggling thighs earned with age, shook to booty music.
(Boisterous applause, knee-slapping laughter, giggles)
Then, the sexy, hair-tossing twenty-somethings clicked across the court in heels and pranced while some seemed to long for poles.
(Catcalls, yee-haw, ow-ow-ow!!!)
Soon, Brooke Hogan, the Hulk's daughter, appeared bigger than the family's reality show on the giant screen with white-blond hair, long pink nails and a sheepish smile.
(Yay, woo-hoo!, clapping)
Not long after Governor Charlie Crist, sitting a row or two back from court side with an attractive brunette, waved to the crowd and looked dapper in a suit and yellow tie.
For those keeping track: funny old people and sexy dancers tied; reality show star had a decent showing; and the man who could make the state much better or worse has had better nights.
(Later, the Heat beat the Charlotte Bobcats 110-90.) -- Janine Zeitlin
