Well said both of you above. I’ve been a jayhawk hoops fan for many years. I used to enjoy the other site, but when it turned negative and the best posters went here, I felt lucky to have found this site.
I’ve been logging in with a new account recently, as my old one jhwkinTgrtown, didn’t want to work anymore, and while a not a big commenter, I’ve really enjoyed learning about the game from people who know it much better than myself.
And sometimes, like when HEM disappeared or someone shares a joy or a loss like rockchalkintexas has, I realize that its not just the knowledge and opinions - those can be found elsewhere on the interwebs - that keep me coming back, but the personalities behind the writing.
I can’t say I “know” of any of you (but feel free to look me up if you’re in st. louis) but sometimes our writing here gives glimpses of who we are. So in that way, I feel like I “know” some of you. Mostly kind, intelligent and passionate folk who share a common history of attending a great school during formative years of our lives.
I was bit surprised for the grief I felt for rockchalkntexas’ loss, someone I’ve never met, I think it speaks to the quality of people, and writing, on this site. Thanks everyone, for your wisdom and wit and efforts that keep this site alive.
Cherish the time with your loved ones and merry christmas to all.
