The other night I tried to explain the “Gino” phenomenon to my wife and she had the same confused look on her face as I did when I sat down trying to think of a good reason why Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber are famous.
“Gino Time” happens at each Celtic home game when the Celtics are on the verge of victory. The American Bandstand legend sends the crowd into a dancing frenzy with his awesome t-shirt and smooth dance moves. Little known fact time: The t-shirt is actually in reference to Italian-Canadian pop singer Gino Vannelli.
Sadly, Gino aka Joe Massoni died 20 years ago at the age of 34 due to pneumonia. Massoni may have left the world before his time, but his contributions to the game of basketball will live on forever.
