Andray Blatche ran out of gas on the highway. Which is about the most Blatche thing ever.

We’ve all been there — the gas warning light comes on and you think to yourself “I can still make it home, then I’ll get gas in the morning.” Then the next morning comes and you’re running late and it’s “I can make it to work, I think, then I’ll get gas afterwards.” And you play chicken with yourself.

Andray Blatche lost that game of chicken — he ran out of gas on the way home from the Nets home opener this weekend. Which is a very Blatche thing to do.

Check out this series of tweets in his timeline (hat tip to Deadspin).

To be a little fair, there is a gas shortage in the New York/New Jersey area following Hurricane Sandy. Getting gas is not as easy as normal.

Still, he ran out of gas.

Never change, Andray. Never change.
