  1. Only small still left? I switch it to XXL but it reverts to small.
  2. Hope to make it. Schedule conflict at the moment. I’ll let you know.
  3. No, on the crapped my pants before question, but can report some massive bouts of greasy cheeks which can be almost as unnerving. What did happen was once when I was little, my mom put me in the shopping cart and tried to keep me quiet by buying me a box of animal crackers. Even at 18 mos. old I knew I didn’t like being shut up, so I took that box of animal crackers and flung it. Just as I did, the store manager turned toward me and the box smacked him right in the face. Instead of him being upset, he came over to tell my mom he’d never seen an arm like that on a kid that young. Turned out, he was a long-time Pony League coach, ages 13-14, and he told my mom to get me involved in baseball as soon as she could. 12 years later, I tried out for his team and became the Number 1 pitcher in the rotation. True story.
  4. Let us know the condition of the pickleball courts while you’re there.
  5. Shiver me timbers, Matey. Blackbeard’s name was Edward Teach and anyone who says not will prepare to walk the plank. Arrrgh.
  6. Another podcast with Coach Ford new as of today: https://slubillikens.com/podcasts/travis-ford/54
  7. Just read the article about Dr. Bush. His passing is a big loss to St. Louis and to SLU. My condolences to the family.
  8. Who’s the little PG? Tight handle and sweet J. Sign him up.
  9. Interesting read about Victory Rock Prep here: https://www.sarasotamagazine.com/arts-and-entertainment/2019/02/victory-rock-s-athletes-travel-across-the-world-for-their-basketball-dreams
  10. I like what I saw in the instagram video. Nice shooting form, soft touch, good hands, was handling it well with some good spin moves. If I had to guess, I’d say he can probably dunk over a trash can. This looks like a good commitment from someone who’s going to blow up this year.
  11. From a Stu Durando tweet: “New SLU signee Lassina Traore averaged 10 points, 13 rebounds and 2 blocked shots in his season at Victory Rock Prep. Coach Loren Jackson said “he has a high motor, rebounds and can defend multiple positions. He’s a very good athlete.” Stu also says that the staff has “developed a relationship with Coach Jackson” based on him having coached Markhi, and also Ford Stuen when he was at IMG Academy. Welcome Lassina!!
  12. Definitely. No KD, no medal… of any color.
  13. Out of reactions, excellent post.
  14. Maybe you put him behind Ossuniyi at 13, but 34? Who writes these things?
  15. A “French Rejection” on a driving layup at the buzzer allows France to move on the gold medal matchup vs. the US. The announcer actually called it a French Rejection when it happened. Thought that was very cool. Rammer should consider getting a copyright for the phrase.
  16. I agree. Excellent upgrade when compared to previous telecommunication iterations.
  17. Yes, joking. Seemed to tie in with the Rose Kennedy mention.
  18. This appears to be excellent news. Welcome, Mr. Thames!!
  19. The 5 second closely guarded rule only applies to a player “holding” the ball. They changed the rule in 2016 to eliminate the 5 second count when a player is dribbling.
  20. UNCG’s Wes Miller hired at UC. Only 38, but has 10 years experience as a head coach at the G. Had five 20-win seasons at a school about as low profile as there is. He clearly did a terrific job there but, having sat behind the G bench at some home games over the years, I can tell you he’s a maniac on the sidelines. I guess it’s OK but I felt almost embarrassed for him with the tantrums he would throw at the refs about essentially nothing. Hoping the G will hire ETSU’s coach who was wrongly dismissed after only one year. That would be an in your face hire if I’ve ever seen one. Those fools at ETSU have trashed their program for at least a few years.
