The worst result that could have possibly happened occurred in our first game as South Carolina upset the LSU Tigers, taking away the best player from the first game (Anthony Randolph) and my large assortment of future girlfriends (the LSU cheerleaders). As you can see above however, we did say bye to the beautiful young ladies before they left and Macon Vol Fan challenged them to an ab contest. You can decide who the winner was. Dave Odom nearly completed his illustrious (“Hey I Coached Tim Duncan”) career by blowing a 12 point lead in 90 seconds, but the Gamecocks hung on, guaranteeing another day of crazy three point shots and double entendres.
Elsewhere in the building, we had one of our first interesting reactions as the day as an individual stopped me to talk about the website and finished the conversation by saying, “I like what you guys do….I dont love it, but I do like it.” Thanks my man. Pat Riley is in the house, as orange as a human being can possibly be. Riley has reached a color that is somewhere between the Texas burnt orange and the color of leather that hasnt been treated, but he is still the smoothest Cat in the building….although it does look like he and Kenny Walker went to the same tailor. I got to talk basketball with Mike Pratt during the LSU-South Carolina game, where we compared notes on recruits and talked about the talent of Anthony Randolph. We were however distracted by the ubiquitous sound of popcorn being crunched as the media masses engulf the free kernels that make this whole event worthwhile.
I am off now to watch Butch Pierre’s amazing hairline make his case for the LSU job full time…..More later….
