A lot of people make a lot of effort to deal about the free-throw line, and these fans will come up with anything. But when you zoom in on the front of the rim, that almost gets blocked out. That wasn't the case in 2003 for Jackie Manuel.
The Viking guy and I were waiting in line to get to the UNC game. And a guy came up to us, wanted us to get everybody to sit down on the second trip to the line for Carolina, and he was gonna stand up and distract the shooter. So during the game, Jackie Manuel got fouled and went to the line. And Viking guy turns around and gets the grad student section to all sit down.
I dropped immediately the second that Jackie Manuel was fouled. And I was ripping my clothes off. I wanted to be something like a just, a blooming flower, which doesn't sound intimidating at all. And I rose up, and I let Jackie Manuel know that he was no match.
在Jackie Manuel被犯規的那一瞬間，我馬上低下身子。我在扯掉我的衣服。我想要成為某個，就是，一朵盛開的花，那聽起來一點威脅性也沒有。然後我站起來，讓Jackie Manuel知道他沒得比。
So I just saw this guy in the Speedo, you know, you know, no shirt, just dancing around. It was kind of hard to focus on a free throw. You see a guy in the Speedo, moving around. "Manuel misses the first." I was like, "Okay, let me gather myself," you know, refocus, and...he jumped up again and started doing another dancing. And I was...inside, I was laughing, but you know, I was trying to stay focused. It kind of threw me off, and I ended up missing my second free-throw as well.
The place goes nuts. Uh, I drop down, throw my clothes back on really really quickly, and I basically, um, descend again to relative obscurity. The Speedo not only helped us win the game that day, it helped me win the heart of my wife.
I was dating Patrick's brother at the time, and once Patrick and I started talking, I just... And I'd seen that Speedo. I had to make this switch with the brother, and I called it off and said, "I'm gonna go with the Speedo!"
I thought anything we can do to help the team win was maybe inbound, but coach K made a specific reference to Speedo Guy and said, "No more Speedos!"
I don't think you should be running around in your underwear at the game. I didn't think that was a good plan. So that has not become uh, a part of uh...you know, what Cameron is.
Coach K, you'll be happy to know that I've matured since then. I'm a pastor at a church in Nashville, Tennessee. "We, the church, are the body of Christ." I have a beautiful wife. I have a beautiful baby boy. But I'll always be the Cameron Crazy in the heart. Twenty years from now, Carolina, we have another Speedo Guy on the way.
