Knicks' choice of music after Gallinari scores called into question

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
In keeping with the theme of yesterday's post about questionable music played during sporting events, we'd like to point out a story from today's New York Daily News. It seems the Knicks' Italian forward Danilo Gallinari was not amused by the pronunciation of his name and the music played after scoring during last night's 102-98 win over the Bulls.

The Daily News reports, "After each of his four baskets, the Knicks' long-time public address announcer Mike Walczewski, using a thick Italian accent, said 'Daneeelo Gal-lin-ar-ay' and then the Italian songs 'Volare' or 'That's Amore' were played."
