Coach of the Leg Lamps

The reason Coach Wooden appears with just the legs of the players is this: he was adamant that new players took care with their socks. He said that if players couldn't get their socks right, they wouldn't play well. Comfort allowed them to play their best.

Gold/bronzish sculpture on Georgia Street. Cool statue.

[Cindy, 06/19/2013]

Known by both admirers and detractors as "Coach of the Leg Lamps," referring to the Lady's Leg Lamp from the film "A Christmas Story," which was set in Indiana. The sculpture is a perhaps too-conceptual tribute to Indiana basketball coach John Wooden.
