As this is the day before our biggest (and most terrifying) home game of the year, I thought I would share with all my beloved Boiler faithful some of the basketball commentary I have to listen to at work. I work in a warehouse in IU country. Not only does this take me far from my homeland, it forces me to have sports conversations with those who love the cream and crimson. Here are some excerpts from such conversations in the past week.
"I just think that Farrow kid has really disrupted the chemistry of the team. We need Hull out there for his shootin"
"Boy that Odillathapo kid sure is a killer isn't he?"'
"Well, it would be nice if that colored kid who usually doesn't hit threes but hit that three against Kentucky could hit the three more"
"They have to keep Zellers involved on offense, we need Hull and Zellers playing well together to be successful."
"Man if he had 5 or 6 of them Odillathapos out there we'd be unbeatable!"
Keep in mind I have corrected these people time and again about the correct pronunciations of all the names above. This is just a snippet of what I deal with on a daily basis. I want to thank you, the H&R community for providing me with (mostly) solid basketball analysis and conversation, as I would have gone insane long ago without it. BOILER UP! (pleasepleasepleaseplease beat IU)
