Out of body experience
Fascinating feeling during today's IU game against Illinois . . . I couldn't have cared less. I watched, the whole thing, even, but it felt like it was just a movie about a basketball game for some reason. I've been a fan my whole life, and we have had bad seasons, worse seasons even, but I've never felt this disembodied during a game. I think it's because the coach and most of our good players won't be back--it's hard to root for Robert Vaden, for example, when he has already delcared his intention to leave the team. I don't feel like he's playing for us any more, and he didn't, really, hitting like 1-10 from three.
A little more fun was going to the game on Friday. The kidz loved the action and the popcorn, but got pooped before the first quarter was done in the varsity game. At the beginning of the game, HHS went out and stood right in the center of the home team's floor and did this cool rallying cry. It was pretty cheeky.
