“I’ll make up for it now…”
Ummm. Ummm. No. Carl. No you won’t.
Just over 10 years ago the most memorable moment in New Jersey Nets history occurred. And no one even remembers the game.
January 21, 1993 was the day Carl Lewis, perhaps the 20th century’s most underrated athlete, treated a packed house in East Rutherford, N.J., to his rendition of the national anthem. It sounded like a cross between a woman giving birth and a mass slaughter of chickens.
If Lewis’ mid-song interjections of “Uh-oh!” and “I’ll make up for it now” don’t cheer up your Tuesday, start loading the gun.
