Fear the Beard

I'll admit it, I've got no experience being a basketball fan. I didn't go to the games when I was in school, and I know that I was a terrible fan and all that. I'm sorry. I think it would have helped if the basketball players had been a little nicer in the weight room, but that's my only teeny defense, and I know it's feeble.

So, fine. Now I'm learning to be a fan and we're doing well and I know that's sort of bandwagon-y, but they're my team, and I'm happy to support them.

So anyhoo- it's the year of the beard. That's something I can definitely get involved in.

Here we are, in beards made from a fulled wool sweater, with a lining of flannel to help with the itchiness.

Go 'Cats! (And have you read Matthew's post about Frank Martin? Best Post Ever.)

I feel like a bandwagon fan too. But if that's what it takes to get me started, I think it's okay.

I'm glad you explained the beards; I was really confused.

I had season tickets to basketball every year--and what great basketball it was... It is sad but there was not much basketball worth watching when you were in school--so who could blame you? I never went to a football game when I was at K-state and feel no guilt supporting the team now (and I don't have a weight room excuse.)

I'm out of the loop on sports, so Brent had to explain the beard to me.

Quite right, not so friendly in the weight room. Not like those weird people who messed around in boats. I'll admit that I'm not quite sure WHAT to do about having a good basketball team to cheer for....
