Everyone does embarrassing sh*t sometimes. For whatever reason, kickball was a huge deal in my elementary school. The kid with the best foot shared his animal crackers with the finest, flat chested, 9-year-old goddess during snack-time, while the weak-legged kids sat and ate their crustless PB&Js alone in the corner (shoutout to Steven Glansberg). This was just the way of the world as a 4th grader in my day. Well, I’ll never forget my pre-pubescent demise (not to be confused with any of my many post-pubescent demises).

I stepped up to the plate one afternoon, during a heated match against the in-class rivals. Their captain, the class bully, started inching up the third base line — an utter display of disrespect where I come from — and I remember pointing to the vacant grass in left field, where I called my shot (like Babe in Game 3 of the ’32 Series).

The pitch came in, and I was ready to tear the rubber off that big red ball. I lined it up and embarked on my pre-kick gallop. I never actually got to kick the ball. That’s the sad truth of it. Before long, there was a new laughing stock of the class. That “laughing stock” was me, standing in the middle of the kickball diamond, with my shorts around my ankles (baring all of my 9 year old glory). It was mortifying.

I don’t know if Gregg Popovich, coach of the NBA Western Conference Champion San Antonio Spurs, ever stood in front of an entire gym class in a pair of “tighty whiteys.” Hell, I don’t even know if Gregg Popovich ever played kickball. No…Gregg Popovich finds new, even more awkward, ways to embarrass himself. Check out this clip of “Pop” doing some bizarre, uncomfortable, body movement during the ’99 Finals parade.

Some stuff never gets old, and this GIF is a fine example. Gregg Popovich is one of the NBA’s most professional ambassadors. This dance, if you can even call it that, is the equivalent of your stoic, Wall Street boss getting too drunk at a partner event and pulling out a private part. You never think it’s possible until, well, it just happens. I was rooting for LeBron James until I saw that clip. Now, all I can think about is San Antonio’s potential 2013 parade, and what moves Pop might still have up his sleeve. I wonder who taught him those moves, I wanna hire them before my daughter’s wedding. Does anyone have Elaine’s number?
