I wonder if we gave up too soon with Reid. Encouraged him to come back after he fully recuperated from that concussion suffered at the ND game. Was supposed to be very good outside sniper.

Thanks Torch

Reid wanted to go home, he was losing passion In fact he sat out a year after he played with the Ichabods. Have to give him credit he picks interesting school mascots!

That clip of Justin Love playing in Odessa a couple of years ago is one of my all-time favorites.

+1. Complete insanity. Should have gone viral, or at least made Deadspin. The shirtless Odessa fan is forever imprinted in my brain.

By the way, I can't find that video. The words "justin" and "love" in a YouTube search, even with other more specific words, bring up almost exclusively Justin Bieber bull****.

The Shark fans are awesome.

Gotta to love the way the cheerleaders are dressed like hookers and how they act when the other team was at the line.

Shark mascot gets reprimanded at 1:15.

torch -- Thanks for the updates! Much appreciated.

That shark mascot interaction is almost as funny to me as the shirtless guy. Together it's 3 minutes of amazing viewing. Just made my Friday.

The shirtless guy was outstanding, but the best part was the shark mascot being removed from under the basket by the refs.

I also noticed at that point that a cheerleader looked to be yelling at someone - maybe an opposing player or the ref. I also enjoyed that moment in this classic video.

I agree. The expression on the shark's face just amplifies the hilarity.

I had forgotten about the shark. You're right, Box, his face is perfect. Or the cheerleader outfits that appear to have been left over from BASEketball.

Honestly, this makes me want to visit the Ukraine and take in some basketball games. It seems like fun on so many levels.

So much great stuff in that video. It actually sounds like there is 20,000 people in there when Love hits that shot.

I thought that the issue with the spirit-team members (not just the mascot) was that they were in contact with the standard while the opposing team's player was shooting free throws. I'm sure some "vibration" that might make a free throw miss would result in a technical foul.
