Aaron White Reprises a Legendary Moment from The Simpsons

"Everyone needs to drive a vehicle, even the very tall."

As you likely know, former Hawkeye hoopster Aaron White is currently plying his trade in Europe.  And, by "plying his trade," we mean throwing down dunks and driving tiny cars.

As a fellow tall guy, the sight of Aaron White standing next to a car that small makes me sad.  It also brings to mind a classic moment from The Simpsons:

Maybe that's Aaron's angle here: Subtly recreating scenes from one of the most iconic television shows of all time.  Could we see a single tear run down White's cheek while a Lithuanian crowd chants "AARON...AARON..."?  Could Aaron jump out of a window after hearing that they have disbanded the Polish Trackandbasketball Association, then jump back in the window when he learns that they have not, in fact, disbanded the PTA?  Will we next see Aaron tweet that he's eating a dangerous, poisonous blowfish that may have been improperly prepared?

I know this: I'll buy tickets for Pretzel Night.
