Anyone who ever played basketball or wanted to play basketball has been part of a game of Horse at some point in time.
Yes, that’s the game that does absolutely nothing good for one’s basketball game, but still strangely resembles the real thing. At least one friend of mine may have a story of over-horsing leading to extra time on the pine.
Anyway, the NBA has adopted this gym classic as a part of its upcoming All-Star Weekend. Could be fun to watch except…
They changed the name.
Horse, once spelled H-O-R-S-E will now be spelled G-E-I-C-O.
Not a word of a lie.
A voice from my childhood echoes on, “Everybody’s got a price for the Million-dollar Man.”
Even if that man is now a lizard, it appears.
