“Yeah, we were just talking about going. I’m really looking forward to seeing the scrimmage.”

“I’m going. I’ve never been before because they usually have it during fall break, but I’m a huge basketball fan and I hear they’re going to drop the championship banner, so I’m excited to see that.”

“Yes, I am. I’ve gone to seven or eight of them now. I’m KU born and raised. I’m excited about the banner. I want to see the new recruits play and also see the players that are considering signing.”

“Yes, but unfortunately I have to work so I can only watch it on TV.”

Sue, I've got my hands in my pockets. Whoops, that's not MY pocket.

Wait, is this that "college basketball" thing again? We here in the Ann Arbor area are unfamiliar with this idea; the last time it existed here was during the Fab Five era, which the NCAA says we're not supposed to remember but we do anyway.

Well now, I was so intrigued by today's question that I just had to look at the related story to find out what this mysterious happening could possibly be. After reading the first four paragraphs I am still definitely in the fog (phog). I only understood one word,- basketball - oh- make that two words, also Canada, I understood that word. They sat ignorance is bliss. It is true.

Why, so I can be deceived by how well these new players score against no to little defense?I loved it the last couple years when co-workers went on about how good Jeremy Case (or insert any role player here) is and how he might average 20 points a game because he made wide-open shots in a scrimmage.

My TV set is indoors, so I can catch Conan sans "phog."

I used to always go when I was younger. We were going to take the oldest girl but she's sick. So instead of late night in the Phog, it'll be long day in the bathroom. I hate it when my babies are sick!!!

R_I, I'm not sure the guys from Queer Eye are really fab. Maybe they should be called the Somewhat Okay But Not Great And Actually Pretty Obnoxious Five Who Would Be Better In A Silent Movie. Or is that too long?Anyway:

Yeah, the Fab Five produced more hype than results, and their misdeeds really helped ruin what used to be a pretty good basketball program. Sooner or later they might manage to resurrect it back into a program worth watching -- there are glimmers of hope now -- but I'm not holding my breath. Michigan is a football school.

Well, as far as sports goes, I have had enough excitement for one night. I just finished watching the Rockford Icehogs trounce the Iowa Chops 6 - 3 and the excitement came when my grandson got his first goal of the season. He also got 2 assists and was first star of the game. Yea! Robbie, way to go. Makes a gramas heart beat faster. Rob is an Icehog this year having moved from Norfolk, Virginia Admirals.
