    I never understood that “T” on Dean Smith either. I’m not a North Carolina fan, but that was a very peculiar call. If I remember, Dean shook every opposing player’s hand on the way to the locker room. That was a pretty classy move after some pretty bad officiating.

    Hey, wait a minute. “No Means No.” I think I’ve heard that somewhere before.

    My God, I think Luhm even shined up the net. That thing will shatter if the dude sliding around on the court can ever figure out where the hoop is.

    I gotta get me one of those “Theo” shirts.

    “Lil’ Abner” – now that is a blast from the past. I’ll trust you on the connection. My local paper never got that strip back in the day.

    Bobby’s approach here is reminding me of an old MASH episode where Radar was interested in one of the nurses and to show her his interest he was going to ignore her. I think his punch line to Hawkeye was that he “beat her to the ignore.” Maybe that’s what Bobby is trying.

    A tip of the hat to all of the smart alecks on the message board today. Very much an above average day on the comments. Well done.

    Unhinged? I have never in my life heard a high school kid use the word “unhinged” in a sentence. I believe “crazy” would be the preferred adjective.

    Chip, I was thinking “AHOO” as well. I had to read this about six times to figure out the letters. I was worried my eyesight was going bad.

    Always thought it was silly to take the big yellow school bus on away trips for basketball games. Even in the old days of JV and Varsity traveling together, that was still only about twenty people on a big old bus. Plenty of room to hide from the student manager.
