We knew Eric Bledsoe was athletic, but daaaang. Wade is admittedly getting older, and has some nagging injuries, but that’s Dwyane Wade. And Eric gave him a big “No Thank You” with that huge block as the Clips went on to win 107-100. Bledsoe picked up 12 points (5/8), one rebound, one assist, one steal, and one mixtape highlight in only 17 minutes.
This one goes under the “Wish we’d known that earlier” category. Eric Berry, a three-year safety at Tennessee, as it turns out is scared of horses. Not as in, “I’d rather not ride that horse, thanks,” but as in, “I’d rather have bamboo shoots shoved under my fingernails than watch Secretariat.” Which is true of a lot of people for totally different reasons. But had we known about this earlier, pretty safe to say that the fans in the Horse Capital of the World might have been able to arrange a little something for his visits. Or we could have made Rich Brooks wear this on the sideline.
Only one more day until the weekend, folks, and exactly one week until Thanksgiving. And only one day until the Wildcats open up in Rupp and let out some frustration. Curbe diem; go curb stomp the day.
