Just met Trey Burke

Trey Burke signed autographs tonight at the Champs Sports in Times Square.  There were hundreds of fans on line, so he wasn't able to spend much time with each guest.  But he was very nice and respectful.  When I asked him to sign a maize and blue shoe on which I have other MBB player signatures, he recognized those and laughed and also complimented my shoe.  Also, whenever anyone asked him what he's heard about who is going to pick him, he pretty much punted on the question; he's been well coached.

(Not being snarky.)  A friend was in town and biking, and when I called to check in she said they were Times Square and "it was so crowded!"  I thought, "Well, duh.  It's Times Square on a sunny summer afternoon."  But considering said friend is a big Michigan fan... Had she only known!

She wouldn't have walked throughTimes Square either, so I was dumbfounded that she had biked there.  Turns out her biking companion had an important errand to do in the area and she didn't even know where she was until it was too late.  Rush hour, sunny day, mobs of summer tourists at the TKTS booth, AND Trey Burke.

I can't read the score on the TV, but I'd recognize that smirk on Beileins face anywhere.  That has to be the grin from the Kansas game, right after Tre hit that crazy shot.  After that shot, even Coach Beilein had to smile a little...thinking--Holy shit, did that really just happen?!!
