In any form of public speaking, one must always be aware of what one is doing with his or her hands. Hand gestures are important to either accentuate the message you may be trying to get across to the audience, or they can become distracting to the point that it ruins any form of effective verbal communication. Usually, we never take any sort of time to think of the hand motions of televised sports personalities, but that may change after this hilarious video of Don Cherry and his piano desk. In trying to make his always salient and brilliant(?) points, Don Cherry spreads his fingers out and pounds his desk like he's Mozart... or perhaps Jerry Lee Lewis.
