Planking UK Fans of the Day Wants Afternoon Notes

uk-planking

Lie face down, stiff as a board, with your arms at your side; it’s called planking and it’s taking over the internet. I don’t get it either. Notes?

Darius Miller has been invited to attend the 2011 USA Basketball Men’s World University Games Team training camp. 22 of the top college ballers will attend the camp that will be held June 29 – August 7 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. Finalists will be announced on June 31 and the final 12-man roster will be selected before the team leaves for China on August 8. After finding out he had been invited, Miller said, “It’s an honor to be invited to the tryouts, where the ultimate goal is a chance to represent our country. I’m just as excited for the opportunity to play against some of the best basketball talent in the nation.” #GodBlessAmerica

— ESPN posted it’s ranking for Patrick Towles today and the 2012 UK commit is a four-star and the 23rd ranked quarterback overall. Zeke Pike is only a three-star and the 29th ranked quarterback. Kentucky > Auburn

— Former Duke basketball player Tom Emma jumped 12 stories to his death from the roof of a Manhattan athletic club today. Emma was the captain of the 1983 Blue Devils squad and a Chicago Bull draft pick. I know you’re thinking it but please be respectful.

Best NBA Finals ever? The rematch, the storylines, the Miami circus, the last second finishes – it’s one of the most entertaining NBA finishes in recent memory. If Dallas can win tomorrow night, the series will reach epic status. Imagine the scene in Miami with two games left and the Heat need them both to win it all. On the other hand, if Miami wins tomorrow night in Dallas, it would take a miracle for Dallas to win the last two on the road.

Dirk Nowitzki has a fever and the only cure is more radio podcast…

    Sad stuff about Emma. You never know what people are trying to deal with inside.

    Oh & the planking stuff…. weird. I’d have to be drunk to find it even a little amusing.

    19- that’s usually the sound you make when you are tearing up some fine female glutus maximus.

    My prayers and empathy go out to the Emma family. If it was a certain Laettner, I could understand his mind to do such a thing.

    The guy on the left should be ashamed of himself for thinking the ground was too dirty to actually plank properly. Lifting his head ever so slightly as to avoid touching his sweet little lips to the rock.

    Do what you want on your own time, but when your celebrating with the blue and white in the picture (as well as your other friends who are committed fully, demonstrating how “real” wildcat fans are naturally) know we can see if your legit all the way to the bone.

    The Duke Floop is much more rewarding from court level than it is from 12 stories up.
