No Way, C.J.













Tim McCarver and C.J. Giles’ personal problems notwithstanding, it’s my favorite time of the year in sports. College basketball starts just after the Tigers finish beating up the Cardinals in the World Series. And it doesn’t hurt when your basketball team is on the cover of every preseason forecast magazine. Sports- the sweetest opiate of all.

    As a KSU fan/alumnus, I can't tell you how stoked I am about the Huggins era starting this year at K-State.

    GO CATS!!!

    As someone who regularly mocks KSU, I too am psyched that Huggins is in Manhattan. Although it'll inevitably result in additional Jayhawk losses, Huggins' presence will benefit all of us. Good job, purple.

    I think I smell some kind of friendly wager brewing here...

    GOD, I can't stand basketball.

    Lots of people running back and forth scoring points right and left, arcane rules about holding/running/walking/dribbling...I have no idea.

    And it seems like the "playoffs" start after the first three games. Everyone is included and it goes on forever.

    Plus, it's an inside sport, it's hot, it's sweaty, it smells, the men are scantily clad and rubbing up against each other "blocking".

    I think it's all kinda gay.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    But XO don't swing that way.

    XO is right. Any sport where a tiny slap on the hand is a foul is, well, one that has lots of fans who can't marry each other. I support the rights of the fans and the players to do as they choose, as long as they all consent.

    Only a communist doesn't like sports. Where else can grown men put on shorts and tank tops, get all sweaty climbing on top of each other and express their latent homosexuality in a socially acceptable forum... I mean besides Liberty, MO.

    emaw, get your hands off of me you damned, dirty ape!

    What's up with the change in visage? Went from a cartoon character to a chain smoking monkey?

    Alert the Kansas Board of Education! We have proof of evoloution in action!
