Everybody do the Ballmer!
Steve Ballmer is an intense dude. You don’t graduate magna cum laude from Harvard, run Microsoft for 13 years, and buy the L.A. Clippers from forced-out racist Donald Sterling without being an intense dude.
Ballmer’s intensity doesn’t stop at the edge of the dance floor. During Fergie’s performance of her song “L.A. Love (La La)” at a Clippers-Lakers game at the Staples Center on Wednesday, Ballmer’s courtside moves were undeniably one of a kind.
“I’ll put it this way,” Clippers power forward Blake Griffin told the Los Angeles Times. “He danced exactly how I expected him to.”
Why exactly might Griffin have expected Ballmer to dance like that? It may have something to do with how Ballmer feels about software developers.
Or even just pretty much anything he loves.
