To the editor:
I just can't stop thinking about that old Orange Bowl duffel bag at Downtown Barber Shop in Lawrence. It was from 1969. This old bag is just one of many collectibles in Jon Amyx's shop. His shop is chock full of KU collectibles and everyone who works there is a Homer.
Yea, it was a ritual. Every other week I'd get my hair cut in his shop. I remember sitting in the barber chair and looking at that old duffel bag, wondering when we'd get back to this bowl. When would our football program get back on top? The old duffel bag has gathered a lot of dust over the years.
Thank God the outcome last night was different from Jan. 1, 1969. What a great win. Maybe now Jon will add a new duffel bag to his collection.
