Larry Legend Hocks Ford Escorts
From The Sports History Desk...

Tonight I was watching a vintage Larry Bird clip on the YouTube. That link will take you to highlights of the infamous "Left Handed Game." The Legend had just come off a triple-double against my beloved and deceased Sonics. (R.I.P. I hate you Howard Schultz. Hope you get hit by a bus.) He was feeling it in the Rose Garden. In the game, for no damn reason, Larry started scoring left handed. Not just layups. Runners, hooks, floaters, short jumpers, it was ridiculous. Most say that The Legend would do this kind of thing because he was bored or need an additional challenge. I believe it was to intimidate. Imagine you're Jerome Kersey heading to the huddle during a 20 second timeout. "Bird is scoring lefty on me... There's nothing I can do." You'd be done.

#33 had another triple double that night, including the game winner. 47-14-11. Nearly half with his freaking off hand.

I noticed a video on the side for a Bird commercial. I had never seen it. Bird tried his hardest to read the cue cards while he shills Ford Escorts. Hating every minute of it. I can't tell you how much this made me laugh.
