The KSR man on the scene, Jared Quillen, still continues to update us on all of the happenings of the Big Blue Madness line through photos and beautiful email prose. According to Jared, a large group of Cats (Ramon Harris, Daniel Orton, Patrick Patterson, Jon Hood, John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, and Darius Miller) came by the line again last night to hang out with the fans, throwing the football and playing cards with a group of ladies (I love that). Jared said Harrellson and Cousins tossed the pigskin around and Harrellson can easily launch it 50 yards in the air. Cousins wasn’t so accurate, hitting a car in the process of his game of catch, but stayed for over an hour to toss the ball around with the people in line, before making a surprise appearance on a live news broadcast. Jared also said that Cousins, who wants to be called either “Carl”, “Big Cuz”, “Big Marc” or “Silverback”, teased Harrellson about his jorts. Solid.

Then, this morning, the guys returned at 8:30 to dish out some McDonald’s breakfast to the folks still waiting for their first chance to see them in action. This is turning into a very, very cool thing. And, with this bond between players and fans developing and the excitement stirring around the program, you get the feeling that this is the start of something great.
