If you understand what the image at the right means you’ll appreciate why my Saturday was just awesome instead of incredibly spectacularly awesome.
Let’s be clear – it was a great weekend, period. The Mullets Return defended our L2 Tournament title AND won the best costume contest for the second year in a row. The Missouri Tigers got a nice “Welcome to the SEC” present from Georgia. And I got some excellent action pictures.
But what would have made it better is K-State not blowing out Miami (I’d taken the Hurricanes + 6.5 in the friendly pool we have) and – more importantly – Kansas not getting upset by a side dish from a Chinese restaurant. (now does the picture make sense? Rice over Kansas. No apology for the visual pun, either – that’s just me)
Don’t get me wrong, it’s college football so it’s goodness. Add to that the fact that it’s KU and that’s better. But while win, lose or draw I’m a Kansas fan … it’s so much more fun when the “win” portion of that equation comes into play. And since Kansas was supposed to be 2-0 heading into Big 12 play at home against TCU next week it makes losing to Rice just that much worse because for KU football ANY Big 12 game is going to have them as the underdog…and probably rightfully so.
So be it – they’ll just have to get their other expected win this year in conference play instead of the non-con.
But no matter what – Rock Chalk Jayhaw, GO KU!by
