e-Gino Time in Boston

You should be dancin’ … yeah.

The Boston Celtics tradition of dancing with Gino to celebrate Celtic wins is alive and well despite the global pandemic.

The Celtics Dancers started the party with a social media post featuring the Bee Gee’s song.

Gino is a popular scoreboard video that plays at the end of game, which gained popularity with a Kevin Garnett endorsement.

Gino refers to the star of an American Bandstand mashup that the Celtics run at the end of lopsided victories. It has been dubbed the team’s victory cigar and Kevin Garnett absolutely adored it, in large part because of the bearded dancer in a tight Gino Vannelli T-shirt and black bellbottoms who stands out above all else in a clip full of ridiculous looks and dance moves.

Great way to perpetuate traditions even when you can’t be with your fans. And I am sure Kevin Garnett was smiling and pointing at his phone somewhere.

Do what you do, but do it from home.
