Backstage Legends

If you've seen any Chevrolet commercials this year, then you know the rocker John Mellencamp really believes this is our country. What you might not know, however, is what Mellencamp recently told Blender magazine:

I've known Larry Bird since we were kids. When he was on the Celtics and I was playing in Boston, he and Kevin McHale would come to my dressing room after the show and smoke me under the table.

Ahh, musicians. You have to love them. They brag about stuff that athletes cover up.

(Commence debate in the comments about what "smoke me under the table" actually means. Whatever it is, I'm guessing it's something Bird's Pacers or McHale's Timberwolves would punish players for.)
