I thought I just saw Christian Laettner in a clip because I saw an ugly Duke jersey, but it wasn't.

Hopefully these little guys at least get to do a half-time show somewhere for their efforts.

Actually, these gents are beyond the halftime shows. They have stuff on iTunes, an album, have been on The Tonight Show, as well as in the legendary Apollo Theater. They've been around a few years, and put a "G"-spin on classical music. I mean, when was the last time you saw someone in the Houston Symphony play Bach or Berlioz or even Beethoven or Mozart while sporting cornrows and wearing FUBU?

Yeah...I should have put more background info in my original post. They call themselves Nuttin' But Strings. They are two brothers, classically trained at Julliard, who developed their own hip hop violin sound. My brother told me about them. Check out their other stuff on YouTube. Pretty impressive.
