@jaybate-1.0 This website has become much more than a basketball blog. We’ve sometimes acted like a disjointed family at Thanksgiving with the disgruntled Uncles railing at the Whippersnappers with fierce arguments about Fools gold, Jamari, Morningstar, Diallo, and coaching faux pas. Everyone has an opinion. Many times, to our amazement, our attitudes change as we talk about young men, many just young teens. Our glory days our over.
If you stay with this site long enough, you somehow end up with some great friends that have become buddies from all parts of the world. We learn about their families, their “good times” in regard to their connection to KU. Some of us go back a long time. For myself, I proudly display my avatar of the first JoJo.
What I realized last night with @rockchalkintexas was an unexpected feeling of grief, similar to the sadness one feels when a close friend loses a loved one. Thank you @approxinfinity for giving me and many others this family. @rockchalkintexas, I want you to be here at least as long as I can stay.
