Oh, It's So Sad
I'm watching the U.VA - VA Tech basketball game and a Tech player just missed a dunk. An uncontested dunk from directly beside the basket. These teams are kind of pitiful. I thought Cavaliers coach Pete Gillen was a good coach but he's had the time now to build his team and they're not appreciably better. Which is too bad. I like Gillen. U. VA hoops on the other hand can pound sand.
But about that dunk - (knocking on forehead) Hello! HELLO! Anyone in there? It seems to be the fashion now to hang on the rim when you dunk and play Cheetah swinging on a tree limb but it is dumb, dumb, dumb. If the Tech player had put the ball in for the dunk and not hung on the rim, it would have dropped. Instead he pulled the rim down and let it pop back up which bounced the ball out. Dumbass.

Ah. It's halftime and they're celebrating 100 years of Cavalier basketball. That would be how many national championships and how many ACC championships? None and one you say? Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner. Also, don't ever bring up the "Ralph Sampson Era" at U. VA. For his entire college career, his team not only never won a national championship, it didn't even win an ACC championship. You don't get superstar status unless you produce. Oh, it's so sad.
