I had quite a chuckle about NBA superstar Dirk Nowitzki's Hasselhoff ritual during games. He really is big in Germany!
Turns out Dirk could have used David at Game 1 of the Western Conference final last night, as Steve Nash and the Phoenix Suns swiped the victory from Dirk and the Mavericks. Although Dirk acquitted himself well (25 pts, 19! rebs - and of course, 9/10 from the line); maybe whiney baby Jerry Stackhouse could have used a new tune.
Instead, David was at the American Idol finale, teary-eyed and cheering as Taylor bested Katharine.
Uhm, not that I watch that show ... still, here's one for the socially awkward triumphing over the pretty people! Although I won't be buying his album or lining up to see him in concert.
From this limited investigation, the truth is pretty clear: if you want to be a winner, you need David Hasselhoff on your side.
