...and my middle son Connor after we went to welcome the team back to the Crisler Center.  Nice kid...he had no problem taking a picture with us because "Timmy's my ride so I have to wait for him."  He rode home with Hardaway Jr who had a throng of admirers waiting for autographs and pictures.

Me too! And nearly doubled my mgopoints while at it. Game....blouses worked for me!

...and well done. Just wanted to say that your diary, above all other pieces about last night's game, provided me with a healthy perspective on this incarnation of the Michigan basketball team. I have to remind myself of the depth and breadth of the sheer misery of the decade of horror so that these bright spots shine ever brighter in relief.

Of course, I immediately thought of Fran McCaffery when the Bo Ryan index was brought up.  Not as high as I thought it would be.

02/08/2013 - 5:11pm They're all great shots... be sure.  Can't really have too much of the Fab Five dunking over fools.  But, yeah, I believe the Webber over Ohio dude is the most quintessential "Game...blouses" pic (at least that I could find).

01/29/2013 - 12:46pm They were kids...

...Darius Morris and Mitch McGary were just kids when the Fab Five was around, if that.  When they fell in love with Webber, they were innocent, and unaware of the greed and corruption in the real world.  They loved seeing those alley-oops, the precise passes, dunks and tournament wins.  They loved the players of the Fab Five and that factored into the decision to come play at UM.  In their minds, they're wearing the number of their childhood idol. 

And to be honest, I was one of those kids too.  I know firsthand of the adoration that kids had for the Fab Five and while that is tarnished in my opinion, it still can't take away from the years of bliss that I felt watching those guys.  They were revolutionary and they were MY team.  It was unbelievable.

So anyways, where are we.  Fab Five is part of our history and we need to embrace the good and deal with the bad.  I think it would be good for the University and the Fab Five to find a good way to publicly come together and officially kick off the "healing process".  And yes, there are kids in Ohio who idolized Pryor and will choose to attend Ohio because of him in the future (along with Clarett, Woody, etc).  Deal with it, they're kids.

...Excel, so consider this your rough draft until a more talented photoshopper improves on this!
