Running Late

I don't arrive at games late. Well, not really, really late. Quite often my wife and I arrive just before or just at tip-off, but I'm basically on time, not missing more than a few moments. Also, when I do arrive, I always wait until the play has stopped before entering the seating area. I hate it when people...

Could It End in a Win? Not This Year...

It always ends in a loss. Those words have become very familiar to most of us over the last few years. I know that I've used it several times to console myself at the end of the year. It wasn't going to end any other way, life goes on, and it always ends in a loss. This year for UNO there was a chance, a very...

Western Illinois vs. Oral Roberts 3/5/2012

For the last five seasons, I have made my way to a conference tournament game each season. In 2007, I watched Creighton knock off Southern Illinois in the MVC Tournament Final to advance to the NCAA Tournament.

Sorry for the cliche to start, but a lot can change over the course of a year. Last year, I showed up several hours before the Gonzaga game only to discover a senior had blown off his c...

I Want to Swear at You So Much!

Even after the disappointing turnout before the Gonzaga game, I thought BYU would actually get a large turnout, even if the lone dance of the semester overlapped with the second half. Since the game took place before the official start of #LastMan, I thought I would perform my own version of First Student and...

The Power of First Impressions

After the last few games, I had become disillusioned with the student section's lack of effort. the LMU game came to a head. Even though it was a Thursday night, one should not be leaving a game at the half. The open seats, facing the LMU bench allowed for a rather annoying set of confrontations. "Are you going...

I. Something Like His"Sometimes you have to watch somebody love something before you can love it yourself. It is as if they're showing you the way." -Donald Miller, Blue Like JazzI read an article once saying the purpose of writing was threefold: to inform, to entertain, and to persuade. Good writers could do...
