In Your Head

Football opponents at the University of Iowa have been psyched out for many years by the pink visiting locker room. The pink locker room was instituted by a former coach who decided that the pink color had a calming effect on opposing players.

Today I went to Madison Square Garden to see the Knicks vs. Celtics game. The Knicks used a little mindfuck of their own by having a 10 year old girl do the player introductions for the visiting Celtics. Then, the Knicks own announcer does the New York intro's in the booming voice... "And nowwwwwww.... YOUR NEWWWWWW YORRRRRRKKKKKK KNICCCCCKKKKKS." I thought it was a great psyche out move. The Celtics didn't seem to mind, and won by three. We spotted Fat Joe, Billy Baldwin, and Matthew Modine at the game.

Did you know that Madison Square Garden has a sporting goods store inside called, I shit you not... The Double Teamed Store. I couldn't make this stuff up.

Did anyone see Carolina Panther Steve Smith's touchdown celebration today? Smith placed the ball on the ground, pulled a towel out of his wasteband, and pretended to be wiping a baby's ass, with the football playing the role of the baby. Only one problem: Steve, everyone knows you never wipe back to front. Come on man.
