Lou Russo, Townsquare Media

I was asked to play against the Harlem Globetrotters tonight at Collins Arena in Lincroft. They are familiar with my playing ability since I've played against them twice before (1point,0 rebounds), and the uniform they gave me speaks volumes.

The number on my uniform could be a great predictor of many things. I will be sporting uniform number "00" and I think that is very symbolic.

That number, most obviously, may be predicting the number of points I will score against the Globetrotters. I will remind you, however that I did score a point against them a few years back. It was a three foot foul shot (don't ask). 

Number "00" could also predict the amount of dignity I'll have left after the game. After all, a 5'2" DJ doesn't stand much of a chance against the world's best basketball team. I will remind you, however, about that foul shot I scored against them.

My uniform number could also predict the number of professional basketball teams that will be interested in my services after seeing me play in the game. As a matter of fact, I'm going to go out on a limb and change that from a prediction to an actual fact.

I'll share the details of the game tomorrow morning. Wish me luck!
