Well, hell.

October 4, 2009

Well, hell.  How did I underestimate the attractiveness of one of the biggest (and free) wildcat basketball events around?  Oh, I thought it would be easy to snag a couple of tickets.  I’d just get online (no need to camp out) and on Saturday mcrazy_picnikorning run over to ticketmaster.com to snag my two tix.  Duh.  Double-duh. 

Then I thought, well stubhub.com might be able to help me out.  I might have to pay $15 or $20 bucks, but that would be fair punishment for my gross negligence.  So, I trot over to stubhub.com and what to my wondering eyes should appear but a vast selection of BBM tickets…the cheapest one being about $88 bucks and the most expensive one being around $115!  Free tickets!?  See for yourself!

Next year I’ll know better.  But shame on you stubhub.com!


The number 8

September 30, 2009

Okay, it’s kind of like Cher and Tina Turner.  You thought I was back, then I wasn’t, now I am again.  Oh, and I’m soooo behind.  I’m getting excited about Big Blue Madness (which as calculated by Walter’s Wildcat World is but 16 days, 9 hours and 46 minutes away) but realize they’re already camped out.  I do have a life (not to say the others don’t) but I think I’ll just be satisfied with a not so good seat.  I’m not sure what one wears to a BBM (that sounds kind of gross), but I’m going to guess something blue and big and . . uh . . . mad?

Oh, and last night I had this dream that Coach Cal actually selected me to play on some odd scrimmage team that was brought in to play the regular team.  At least I think that is what it was.  And we scrimmaged in my old high school gym, and he had us playing with a rolled up paper of some sort in one hand (not the kind you’re probably thinking of).  I was so excited and shocked that he asked me to be on the team.  Three others did not make it.  I was one of an elite team of eight.

Which leads me to the headline of this post.  According to one website the  number 8 features in dreams about the circulatory system (8 is two circles).  Yeah, figure that one out.  Although, I did recently have “the Gout”  (you must use the “the” when referring to gout) which is not necessarily a circulatory thing but, then again, it kinda sorta is.  So I guess my dream was more about gout than basketball.  The number 8 also has a variety of meanings in the Bible and Oxygen is number 8 on the Periodic Table of Elements.

But I digress.  I’m still working on an earlier promise to become a John Wall scholar.  Promises, promises.  That post will come soon.  I promise.

So long for now and happy 8s!
