I realized I just cracked 100 and shouldn't be making threads (feel free to neg away - I will start it off).
Thought the board would enjoy this podcast by 99% invisible.
It's about 20 mins long and dicusses some of the hidden politics behind basketball, specifically how racism, genetics, and the civil rights movement made the game what it is today.
you daily reminder
we are stll well ahead
Pretty simple question. I don't think I've seen a college basketball team play a D-2 team in mid-February. Does anyone know why they are playing this game now?
Looks like he'll be in the studio and also live Tweet the game from the BTN Michigan account. I'm posting this because it should make the game a little less dreary than it might otherwise be. And hopefully some of his leadership aneurysmocity* will rub off on the team.
*Yes, that is a word.
yes, once again
As a recent Minneapolis transplant, I have made a point to attend as many Michigan related events as possible, including watching the last play stand against the Gophers at TCF Bank on Halloween. Recently, I procured tickets to tomorrows game at the Barn, but those tickets are directly behind the Gophers bench and those tickets were given to me with one stipulation: No Michigan attire.
Usually, I am the guy who is in the middle of the opposing teams section generally making an ass of myself, but as a favor to the friend I agreed to knock off the buffoonery and keep my behavior appropriately professional.
I'm curious as to if anyone else has been in a similar situation, and how that situation was handled.
Thanks in advance.
