San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich made a bold political statement on Saturday night: he’s voting for Pedro.
Pedro, of course, is Pedro Sanchez from 2004 cult classic Napoleon Dynamite. In the film, Sanchez is the best friend of the titular character and runs for class president. Napoleon then wears a “Vote For Pedro” shirt for most of the movie. If you were in high school when this movie came out, you saw this shirt at least once a day in the hallway. Maybe the Spurs coach is hoping to bring it back in style.
Pop’s timing is convenient given that a presidential election is just days away, but this isn’t the first time he’s been seen making political statements with his clothing. Here he is wearing the same shirt with U.S. Swimmer Michael Phelps.
