  1. I don't think Mason Gillis even remotely belongs in the same sentence as EJ Liddell...
  2. "He gets it out deep and Havlicek steals it! Over to Sam Jones! Havlicek stole the ball!"
  3. Dogs have that natural protective instinct about babies. Very cool. My best bud Marcie takes a more distanced approach so she can get the angle on an ankle... And I was browsing through some pics and came upon one of our boxer Ty back in the day photobombing a pic with my new granddaughter's mom (my youngest daughter) being held by my Mom circa 1995. Old Ty was all business when it came to his baby...
  4. He's not nearly as athletic, but he's just one of those guys that knows how to play... What I mean is, he knows how to use his body, his footwork, and fakes to get shots, and he has a very soft touch around the rim. Kind of surprising on the defensive end too, as he has great timing and uses position to defend taller players... I saw him outplay Michigan signee Tarris Reed (who is 6'10...or probably 5'4 on G&B Illustrated 😁) on both ends of the floor when Montverde beat Link Academy...
  5. Which says to me Coach Woodson is looking out for Geronimo and considering what would be best for his basketball future. I think the issues are whether he has or can develop his dribble drive game, is his outside shot consistent enough, and can he guard opposing 3s on the perimeter... And I don't think his hands are as bad as Justin Smith's, but they aren't the softest I've ever seen either...
  6. Thanks...my wife looked at that "grumpy" pic, looked at me and said, "they were right. Fruit doesn't fall far from the tree."
  7. I think they're more trying to force them into making living arrangements. My niece works for the city of San Francisco. She always tells me the homeless there won't take rooms or housing because they don't want to comply with any rules (and in California and San Francisco in particular the rules aren't very harsh). Drug use and mental health problems are a big issue. From reading the cited article, seems like they're trying to force people to at least try to get help. Says they really haven't enforced laws that are on the books and probably won't enforce this one.
  8. So they took my new granddaughter to her first horse show this weekend...had to get up early, and it seems she's just not a morning person 🙂 And once they got there, she chose a nice nap over saying "hello" to the horses Babies are just the best...
  9. And that's who he reminded me of when I watched his full games on ESPN this past year. Tough, strong, and an out of this world basketball IQ. The caveat I think he can potentially be a much better shooter than Quinn was...
  10. This...and leadership...tough for a freshman to be heard in a lineup with a lot of upper classmen, but I seem to remember a freshman guard who led IU to a final 4 with a pretty experienced cast around him...
  11. There are Steak n Shakes in Beaumont and Arlington, Tx, but the one here in H-Town on FM1960 closed about 6 years ago...Walmart use to carry their canned chili, but hasn't for about a year now...
  12. I love Trey, but until his 3 point average gets above 30% he's not going to be a "centerpiece" anywhere... He'd probably start at Butler, something he's not assured of at IU...
  13. Love liver...chicken, beef, and, as you say, pate. I'd rather eat liver than steak. Fortunately, down here in Texas, Luby's Cafeteria has beef liver and onions, and Hartz Chicken Buffet has chicken livers. And the best Italian dish I've ever had was goose liver pate ravioli from a restaurant in DC...
  14. Well, since you don't seem averse to the unconventional 😉 how about lamb fries? I've tried tongue a couple of different ways and ik not a big fan, but I'll eat it. I've had lamb fries both smoked and fried (prefer fried) and both ways were pretty good...
  15. Gold and Black fellas have whittled TJD from 6’10 in shoes, to 6'9, to 6'8, and now down to 6'7... If it was up to them, he'd end up being the basketball version of Eddie Gaedel...
  16. Like I said, I think the only position in question in the starting lineup is at the 2 between Bates, Galloway, and JHS. No one has mentioned Coach Woodson's favorite subject yet...defense. We know Galloway is a decent defender. Tamar tried, but gets himself out of position sometimes. As far as JHS goes, he was a great high school defender, and has the tools to be a lockdown type guy in college...but, until I see him on a Tanner Holden or Seth Lundy, I'll reserve judgement. I do think he has the best balance of offense and defense of the 3.
  17. The year DiMaggio had his 56 game hitting streak (1941), he struck out 13 time in 622 plate appearances. That's a 4 game total for some guys today...
  18. I know, just pointing out that there are more ways to shine on a basketball court than scoring or shooting percentage. Intangibles are why he starred at IU and played 10 years in the NBA.
  19. Offense was never Buckner's forte... He played hard, he played smart, he was a lockdown defender, and... He was probably the most deserving of any IU player in my lifetime to be called "a leader" and "a winner."
