Duke vs Unc – the Danny Green Dance

February 6, 2008

Ahh, Duke vs UNC time. When ESPN goes to constant coverage like each meeting is the Superbowl or the Democratic primary (which still didn’t resolve anything) or like the abducted landing with a message from the future.

The storylines are:

  • Mean Gerald Henderson hit that vulnerable Tyler Hansbrough in the face with a late elbow while going for a basket and busted Psycho T’s nose…
  • Ty Lawson’s foot injury— will the ankle heel? I mean heal?
  • Coach K saying it’s water under the bridge
  • Dick Vitale returns to scald the ears of listeners with his announcing (and we wouldn’t have it any other way)…
  • But all I want to see is Danny Green’s famous “Jump Around” dance! I heard Roy Williams on Pardon the Interruption (14:00 mark) defending the dance (note: transcription on that link is inaccurate/ not human-written). Williams even commented that he, too, bops his head to it. A short video:

    Also, I’d like to see some good basketball after listening to tonight’s Rutgers/ St. John’s game.

      Danny Green and Mark Madsen should start a boy band.
