I was born in Topeka during a short period of time my dad was a civilian after being a SEABEE on Saipan during WWII. He returned to the Navy with the Korea thing and served until he retired in 1968. Needless to say with dad’s service time and my 20 years in the AF, I spent little time in Topeka.
But that didn’t keep me from being a Kansas fan. I now live in Bush, Louisiana, which you may or may not find on a map. It’s general location is about 55 miles north of Nawlin’s and midway between Covington and Bogalusa. Bush consists of 3 gas stations, 1 grocery store, a post office and an all you can eat seafood place that’s only open Thur thru Sunday.
I’ve been in AFH twice. First when my youngest son attended Roy’s camp and once when we lost to Iowa St. When my son and I walked out of the tunnel onto the court I actually got goosebumps. It was awesome. My son is still a KU fan as long as they never play Clemson. A bad habit he picked up when we lived in South Carolina.
We’ve been in the dome for the disappointing '03 and '12 FF’s. Looking forward to the next one cause they say “the third time’s the charm.”
