Today's cameos were planned well into last week and were in full pre-production when the news broke yesterday about Jake Ryan's unfortunate injury. After going through the typical AARRGGHH PANIC like the rest of you, I was torn with what to do about it-- should I substitute him with another player, leave it be, or scratch the whole story.
In the end I posed the question on Twitter, and received an overwhelming collective response instructing me to KEEP HIM IN. "HE'S HURT, NOT DEAD," etc. And so here he is. Truly heartbreaking stuff, and I hope his little Blockhamized appearance now serves as a tribute to our temporarily fallen hero. Godspeed, Jake Ryan-- we all love watching you play, big fella.
Friday Fun will probably have something to say about basketball. Dear Lord let it be good.
