...here's Lou Holtz's rousing pep talk for Isiah Thomas, Stephon Marbury, and the New York Knicks.
Yeah. A little reminiscent of Farmer Fran in The Waterboy, no? Rambling, unintelligible, yet somehow very wise. I'd like to dedicate last night's win over Milwaukee to Coach Holtz. Thank you sir.
(Question for the comments: Did ESPN provide Holtz with the Stephon Marbury jersey and the basketball, or did he just show up with them? I'm saying he brought his own bag of props with a whistle, a headband, a pair of sports goggles, and some diamond earrings, but the producers talked him down to just those two things.)
(Tip of the hat to Deadspin.)
