He will start purring and if you stretch him out and then curl him up in a ball again it starts to sound like an accordion
Tony Lavelli was a 6'3" star forward out of Yale who was selected 4th overall by the Boston Celtics in the early days of the NBA (at that time the BAA). However, he initially refused to play for the Celtics in order to follow his passion for music at Julliard. Ultimately, he reached an agreement with the team in which he would earn an extra $125 per game by playing his accordion at halftime--usually still in his basketball jersey.
Lavelli later signed with the Knicks to simultaneously enroll at Julliard and embarked on a career as a songwriter and nightclub performer following his retirement from basketball.
Just watched through for the 2nd time after watching the first time 2 weeks ago.
Love love love this show.
But can anyone explain why the group was so horrible to the accordion boy after they bought his freedom?
They taunted him in a very cruel way and then sent him off to fend for himself. He was blind also right?
In a show that has such sweet moments throughout and in the bachelor party scene in particular where they were all bonding so nicely, it seemed a little jarring to me.
I know they picked on the evidence room cops too (especially Gregory Gordon, HR) but that seemed to work well.
Anyone else bothered by how they treated the boy?
“?” Because it’s a very emotional song that talks about DOOM and the loss of his brother. “Accordion” because of the very first line. I just be trynna enjoy my day and I hear in my head “Livin off borrowed time the clock ticks faster“. And it’s just like...damn...we really lost DOOM bro. Fuck.
I love looking at different accordions and I’ve always been really interested in what everybody in this community plays because they’re all so cool and different
