If one could put a price on love, it's $24.95

Doug and Jackie Christie
Doug and Jackie Christie will beat the world over the head with their love. Again.

Wondering what happened to Doug and Jackie Christie since his NBA career and their joint reality show (Committed: The Christies on BET-J) ended? Well, now they're hawking a book. I received an email today pitching No Ordinary Love: A True Story of Marriage and Basketball. No Ordinary Love isn't just a Sade song anymore but also, evidently, a book that "pull[s] back the curtain on their highly publicized marriage, Doug's career, and their personal ups and downs in the world of the NBA."

Presumably a reader will learn the origin of the index-and-pinky-finger hand signal meaning "I love you" that Doug would flash as many as 60 times a game to his wife in the stands. (Curiously, some other NBA players use the same signal to indicate their number of illegitimate children. From the last road trip.) The book is being published through the Christies' new Infinite Love Publishing, which sounds an awful lot like "self-published." But what do I know, I'm not even married.

You better watch out Pete. Mrs. Christie will come at you swinging her purse, and she just put in 2 extra sets of keys in it to make sure it stings.
Doug who ??

Good luck Dougie, you're gonna need it.
They should just resort to selling leather clothing since it seems to be all they were, LOL.

The first in a trilogy. The other two volumes being each party's tell-all after the divorce....

wow people still care about doug christie?!?!?! you know i try not to judge people that I dont know personally but for some reason I never liked Doug Christie. I think he even played for my Lakers for a hot minute but still, i admit i have no reason not to like him but I just don't. Can't put my finger on what the reason is though.

There's one good reason to like Doug Christie. He punched out Rick Fox.
While I've never intentionally watched either BET or Doug Christie, the origins of the "mysterious" hand-sign is ASL (American Sign Language). It is often used by deafs, mutes, and people being booed so loudly (due to shameless over-exposure) that they can't hear one another.

Pete's not married, but he is single, thin, and thirty ... not that their's anything wrong with that.

Anon. 1:48 p.m., that is all true, but I am *not* neat. Not that there would be anything wrong with that. -- Thanks, Pete
