I wish I was more like Vinny Del Negro
It's great to see my former man-crush Vinny Del Negro turn up in the news. It was funny when it came up on the ESPN ticker, certain things just catch your eye- Milwaukee, soccer, and Vinny Del Negro. Vinny is going to become the head coach of the Chicago Bulls. Now why couldn't the Bucks get him?
For those of you that don't remember, Del Negro was a former NBA player for the Spurs, Bucks, and Suns among others, know for his silky smooth good looks and shooting. He always seemed tou torch the Bucks, and I was happy to see him join our team. He was proclaimed "the master of the clutch inbounds pass". I can remember at least three occasions where his late game inbounds pass led to a Milwaukee victory. And don't forget the great hair and constant 5 o'clock shadow. He was an inspiration for white boys everywhere. To this day, his is the only basketball jersey I have ever owned.
So Vinny, I wish you good luck in Chicago. It will be fun to see you a few times a year.
