Parks and Recreation returned last night. That meant the return of Ron Effing Swanson, one of the greatest Americans to grace a television screen since Hank Hill, as well as one of the funniest characters on television. In the clip above, he explains to a youth basketball team how to be great. He does this while wearing a Bobby Knight sweater.
The basketball highlights are inter-cut with a scene from the local gay bar, so stick with it. (As if Adam Scott and Rob Lowe weren’t enough reason.)
Somehow I forgot to add this screengrab of the Swanson Pyramid of Greatness. Familiarize yourself. Become better than a Gladiator.
