I guess if Beyonce ever asks Duke basketball head coach Mike Krzyzekwi to ‘put a ring on it’, he’ll have a few to pick from.
The four time NCAA champion recently revealed a bit of personal information during a Duke basketball campout where he not only talked about his ‘street cred’, but also spoke about his love for Ms. Knowles and how he mustered up the strength to ask her for a picture.
Per the Blue Zone:
In the video, Coach K also talks about giving a speech for Lebron James at the 2012 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year award with Jay-Z and Beyonce in attendance. Jay-Z introduced himself as “Jay” with Krzyzewski saying he almost then introduced himself as “K.”
After taking a picture with Lebron and Jay-Z Krzyzewski notes he’s “the coolest 65-year-old,” but that his real goal was to meet Beyonce, before which he was “as nervous as can be.” Per Krzyzewski’s telling of the story, after sweating over what he should say to her, he says, “Hi, I’m Coach K” to which she replies, “Coach, I know who you are—I just listened to you for 10 minutes.” Krzyzewski said it was like she was “patting me on the head like a little boy” and makes him feel like he was 11. He then tells Beyonce “you’re my favorite” with his face “as red as can be.” He then asked Beyonce to take a picture with him, a picture in which he looks like he’s 12, he said.
It’s a bit difficult to hear Coach K in the video, so, you’ll need to turn up the volume but it’s a pretty funny story.
