USA b-baller Jason Kidd is fresh off his gold medal win in Beijing and guess what he's doing? No, he's not going to Disney World. He's going to give his gold medal to Elaine Wynn, wife of Steve Wynn.

Since we could not do this sort of explanation any justice, we're giving you Kidd's own words:

"Last summer, we stayed at the Wynn for (what seemed like) a lifetime, close to three weeks," Kidd said. "We met at a banquet, we got to talking, and she really understands the game.

"I told her I'd make a deal with her, that if we won the gold medal, I'd give it to her. She thought I was kidding. But I told her I had one already, and the way they treated us at the Wynn, it was the least I could do."

While some folk might think this idiotic, we say, "Brilliant." Kidd will always have a VIP room and service awaiting him at the Wynn Las Vegas. And that will probably be comped. Man, it's genius. So genius we feel like training for the Olympics now.
