When I first clicked on this link from Ball Don’t Lie, I just figured, “oh, Dirk Nowitzki signing Born in the USA? That sounds fun. He probably has an accent. I can probably throw this in the Roundup tomorrow.” Forty-five minutes later I clicked on the tab and saw the YouTube image. I immediately hit play and was blown away by awesomeness. I mean, as far as Dirk goes, this is all-out. This is winning the NBA Finals after a decade of frustration and losing to the Warriors as a 1-seed all-out. The Mavs and Dirk have to do the entire song. And the entire Springsteen catalog.
Spoiler: the Pistons didn’t like it.
A sign of things to come? Or underclassmen getting advice elsewhere?
It’s a Festivus miracle!
Bowl games and football, that’s what December does.
It’s an honor just to be nominated.
