    When I was 12 I had my first sexual experience. At the time, I lived in a little suburb outside of Cleveland and anyway, the girl next door and I were really good friends. Our parents were both gone for the day and she was over playing Transformers with me. So anyway, we kinda got.. Bored I guess? And we started playing truth or dare, which turned into ‘you show me yours, I’ll show you mine”. So anyway there I Was, 12 years old, heart pounding, blood rushing in my ears, and the chick (who was a year older than me actually) takes off her panties and hikes her little skirt up. so What did I do, you ask? I whistled for a cab, and when it came near, the license plate said “fresh” and there were dice in the mirror. If anything I could say that this cab was rare, but I thought “naw forget it, yo home to bel-air!” I pulled up to the house about seven or eight and I yelled to the cabbie “yo homes smell ya later!” Looked at my kingdom, I was finally there. To settle my throne as the prince of bel-air.

    Expecting myself and that’s it in my room at 4 a.m. while deployed to the Middle East with the Air Force. Luckily I get the game in my room. Unluckily, I have to drink my 3 shots of bourbon right now, because I can’t drink within 8 hrs of work. 🙁 Go Cats Anyways!!!!!

    5. Your best bet is going to Charlotte. There’s an alumni association there that gets together to watch games. I live in Winston too.

    Preciate all the support. 11 years of this is getting old, but I’ve got 9 years to go until I can sit in that recliner, sipping on my Beam/Bud Light and enjoy my Cats the right way. Until then, I’ll do it the best I can. #15, sorry you can’t watch the game. I’ve been through that. 2004 was the worst loss of my life, because I was stuck at work in Korea with no computer, and thought we’d easily take down UAB. Let’s take this support to a new level and enjoy this game tonight like it’s the last game of our lives!!!!

    Wonder if one can read anything in Mike Moser deciding to return to UNLV for his junior year. He is about the exact size of Shabazz. I believe he is a SF as well. Could he be staying to join with Shabazz and make up a sure Top20 team? Or has he heard Shabazz is looking beyond the desert toward UK or UCLA and there will be a lot of PT available. (He was an honorable mention All-America this season).

    Who knows?

    Me and my 6 year old boy are going to watch in our house in Omaha, Nebraska. We will both have our 3 goggles on. It will be a night I will never forget.

    29. wonderful sentiment. I did the same thing with my daughter 14 years ago when she was 8. We were living in DC. Now we are here in Kentucky and she is watching with friends at Grevey’s in northern Va. Memories to last a lifetime my friend!

    30. Honestly struggling with indecision. But you should be able to find the details/contact info through the UK alum association. I think they watch at Blackfinn uptown.

    Anyone near Des Moines, Iowa please feel free to join us at Buffalo Wild Wings on Merle Hay Rd. I even seriously thought about attending the KU Alumni watch party here in Des Moines but I had a feeling the bourbon would get the best of me!! Everyone have fun wherever you are and GO BIG BLUE!!!!

    Shout out to Demetrios Karathanasis, brother-in law in Lexington. I am a KU fan that has been reading this blog fairly regularly because you always have the 411 on recruiting. Good post, good luck, and Rock Chalk. Much respect for the avid UK fans, have UK winning my bracket, but hoping for KU victory tonight.

    If you’re a wildcat fan in the South Bay are in Los Angeles and can’t make it to the alumni event in West Hollywood (damn LA traffic), come to Baja Sharkeez in Hermosa Beach. A few beers, a few laughs, and watching the Cats roll to #8 by the beach, ain’t nothing better!
