There’s always a certain amount of gamesmanship that takes place during pregame warm ups at sporting events. The home team will often play music designed to poke fun at or distract their opponents often to the delight of the home fans. During last night’s Game 3 between the Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors, the Bucks went straight for the joke by playing the theme song from the children’s show, Barney, during player introductions for the Raptors.
Twitter loved it.
The Bucks made a statement on the floor as well blowing out the Raptors 104-77 to take a 2-1 series lead. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way with 19 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 blocks and 2 steals. I’d be willing to bet we’ll hear the Barney theme song again on Monday night when the teams return to the floor at the Bradley Center.
