    Never gets old. I especially laughed at the "caught a fan knitting" bit. My mother-in-law goes to a lot of football and basketball games with my father in law and she doesn't knit but she always has at least one book with her to read during the game. Drives the fans around her crazy.

    I don't know. The Ken Trickey era in the 70s set us back quite a few decades.

    Now mulling over my summer of '69 decision to major in landscape architecture. ;)

    If you’re bringing a distraction to what is supposed to be your main entertainment for the night, might want to rethink your hobbies.

    The one from last year dribbles like he's learning to dribble, and pretty sure he was playing PG last night.

    No worries though--he'll shove his way to the hoop vs. ISU...it's his dream to quiet a Hilton crowd with his, um, 'skills'.

    I think the other one was out there last night...him vs. what Michigan State usually rolls out there for big men is an interesting thought.

    The basketball gods were mad at us for leaving the Armory.

    And the cancer that killed Maury John. :(:(:(

    I don't blame her for wanting to spend time with her boys (their son also frequently goes with them). And I also don't blame her for wanting something else to do during game breaks and stuff. She's not a big sports person; she just likes the family time.

    Good one by Gookin, think he tweaked the Curb Your Enthusiasm one to make Fran appear redder.

    To be fair the Big East is pretty stacked this year.
    St John's (usually solid fundamentally)
    Seton Hall (ranked)
    Villanova (Always good)
    Xavier (Not sure on them this year)
    Georgetown (Not sure this year but play tough)
    Creighton
    Butler
    Marquette
    Providence
    DePaul

    I think DePaul could surprise a bit this year (They look pretty athletic although turnovers will doom them.) Not a tournament team, but they should be competitive with better teams. Just shouldn't blow out a home team by 20+ points.
