Timberwolves, Rec Specs, and a Clothesline

The Minnesota Timberwolves announced today that they have named Rec Specs spokesmodel and mustache aficionado Kurt Rambis as their new head coach. It's a move that the basketball gods must have nudged a bit for their own amusement: you see, Rambis is replacing Kevin McHale on the sideline roughly 25 years after the two met in the NBA Finals and Rambis's head met with McHale's lanky forearm on the way to the basket.

As the Minneapolis Star Tribune notes, "Now, the working man's power forward who headed toward the basket for a layup so long ago will replace the future Hall of Fame player who once laid him flat on his back."
