    Royce's Big Hands

    Did I hear Holly Rowe correctly during the UT game state Royce's hand dimensions measure 11-1/2 inches from base of the palm to tip of middle finger? Dang

    And what did she say was the span - from thumb to pinky ??

    To put that into perspective, "Doctor J" Julius Erving had a span of 11 inches from first finger to pinky, (across the four fingers) when fully extended.

    Re: Royce's Big Hands

    Then she also said "That's 23-1/2 inches of area." Fail, and fail.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

Had a music teacher tell me in high school that I'd "never live up to my full potential if I didn't put my 'fantastic piano hands' to use". Not only was her telling me that weird, but it's the only thing she ever said to me as I wasn't in any fine arts classes and I doubt she even knew my name.

    Guess what? I never played piano. Never had an interest in it. I'm doing alright these days.

    The thing is though...Royce does play piano...quite often actually.

    On another note, I shook Royce's hand at the hotel this week and my hand disappeared. It was like shaking hands with a pillow because not only did his hand engulf mine, but it was crazy soft too. They're just gigantic!
