We went to the KU game on Saturday.  It sucked to watch us lose an 11 point lead in five minutes.  I still don't know what happened.  It's not like we were making critical mistakes, a couple missed free throws, but that's about it.  It's not like Texas A&M was making easy shots, we played solid defense the whole game.  It just slipped away from us.

After the final buzzer, in an act that portrays the entire A&M program as a classless crew that doesn't know how to win, they jumped up and down in celebration on the Jayhawk in the center of the court.  Their leading scorer apologized after the game, but it was still disrespectful.

We headed over the the Yacht Club after the game to get a few drinks.  Somehow, we got a table and five minutes after we sat down I saw Jay Bilas sit down at the table next to us.  Then Digger came in and one by one the whole ESPN college gameday crew and staff were sitting at the table right next to us.  All the televisions in the bar were on ESPN and I was starstruck being 10 feet from the guys that define my college basketball opinions every Saturday.  Everyone in the bar was bringing them drinks and at one point, the whole bar was chanting "Chug, chug" to Digger as he drank his beer while wearing, of course, a Notre Dame hat.  It would have been a much better atmosphere had we won the game, but we still managed to pull out the Lawrence welcome mat even in defeat.  Because we're classy like that!
