“Look honey, I can’t explain to you why I need to bring my flamingo to the game tonight, but I just do. I got great seats and if anything cool happens nearby, I’d like to be able to pull out the flamingo and like celebrate with it or wave it in somebody’s face or something. I don’t know. I just feel like I might want to have it with me, just in case.” — Flamingo Guy, before leaving for last night’s Game 6

  1. Lebron totally pretended not to see that flamingo. But, he saw it. Everyone knows that he did.

  2. Please, maybe I just have the maturity of a 13 year old when it all comes down to it, but my highlght was Mike Breen saying. “Lebron James can’t finish…. You rearely see him unable to finish, he’s such a great finisher.” I was waiting for him to follow that with “because as we all know, LeBron James is the Peter North of the NBA. Nobody finishes quite like him.”

  3. Clearly he had an inside tip on Wade’s pants.

  4. Flamingo Guy has been a season ticket holder forever in Indy. He’s a courtside staple, and he’s always been known for his hardhat, signs, and other – uh – interesting items. The flamingo is just the newest one.

    If you watch old Pacers footage, particularly of the Reggie Miller era, you can’t miss him. He’s all over the ESPN 30 for 30 “Winning Time” for example.

    That dude is like my uncle that I never see except when there’s booze around. He’s been a part of my life – yet not, I don’t know him personally – for so long, it’s weird.
