Class In Session

Thanks to the good folks at Basketbawful (and okay, the Dance of Dumb was silly enough to entitle Dirk and Dampier to a few cheap shots), we now have our hands on the text for Applied Sports Psychology 101.

It's a first-person column Bill Russell wrote for Sports Illustrated back in '65 and it describes small ways and means to fuck with the opposition. The whole idea behind the piece can be summed up in Russell's First Law, "You must make the other player do what you want him to do."

Must spend some time in the Periodicals section of the library and look up some more of this stuff.
