Girmindl's Ghost

A diary of Shaker High School's 2005-2006 basketball season, a retelling of Shaker's fabled 1979-1980 season, and general commentary on high school hoops, updated daily...


"I like sitting in the back row. I found that sitting against the wall is just easier on your back." -Dean Smith, on the comfort of the H-gym bleachers

Hillarious

Funny email: I just got this email:
As someone getting a Ph.D. in political science, did you consider watching the State of the Union addres instead of going to the Shaker game tonight?
Interesting. It's true that I'm getting a Ph.D. in political science, and it's also true that I would normally watch the SOTU address pretty intensely. I'm definitely a politics geek. But please. The thought of sitting in my apartment watching TV while Shaker was playing 1/2 mile away is just absurd. No way. But I will probably tape the SOTU address. Like I said, politics geek.

Hmmm, I'm trying to think of something that would be on TV on a Tuesday or Friday night that would keep me from going to a Shaker game. And emergency news coverage - like nuclear war - don't count, because they would cancel the game. I don't really think there's anything. Maybe my sister becoming President? - but I'd attend that, not watch it on TV. Maybe a Mars landing? That would probably cancel the game. Maybe something like the final episdoe of M.A.S.H.? I guess that could do it. Maybe. Maybe something like a Siena first-round NCAA game? But for that to interfere with a Shaker game means Shaker would be deep in the state tourney. And I think I'm pretty sure I'd skip anything - even a Mars landing - to see Shaker play in the state finals.
