What a game last night. It was a fun game. It was interesting to see. The NCAA Finals were pretty exciting. The Final Four was pretty exciting altogether. It was pretty surprising outcome.
It was unfortunate to see Memphis collapse like that at the end. People, all season, were talking about their free throws and it’s ironic that it caught up to them at the biggest moment of the year. So I guess Kansas deserved to win.
It was a fun game to watch. One of the better things about sporting events like that is that it gives myself and some of the guys a reason to get together and hang out and build the team camaraderie and chemistry. I think all of that stuff is important to building a good team is being comfortable with each other, just hanging out. A few of us watched the last two rounds of the tournament together and had a good time.
We are doing a lot of promotion for College Friday which is coming up this Friday. It’s Friday, April 11, I’d like to encourage everybody to wear their college gear, or whatever their favorite school is or the school they went to, to work. To promote college for young people. It opens the dialogue. Show your support for College in Colorado and show your support for young people of Colorado by wearing your college gear on April 11.
It’s funny being mentioned among ‘The seen’ in Penny Parker’s column. There were other people with us and it’s funny that I was mentioned in the article. I think that’s like the third time I’ve been mentioned in that column. It’s big news. As long as they don’t put too much personal information in there. They can say where I was, just not where I live or anything like that.
This weekend was the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. being assassinated. I saw a lot of stuff on television about that. I saw a good documentary about that on the History Channel. The History Channel is one of my guilty pleasures. I don’t tell too many people about it because it doesn’t sound too cool. I really like the History Channel and Discovery Channel. I get down with ‘Myth Busters” which is a great show. I don’t tell too many people about that because I have to keep up my cool façade.
I saw a bunch of stuff on there about Dr. King, all aspects of his life. I saw something on VH-1 about the hippie movement in the 60s. There was something else on the History Channel about John F. Kennedy getting assassinated. It seemed like the 60s were quite an eventful decade. I think it would have been an amazing experience to have lived through that. I’m kinda jealous to have not experienced that, but at the same time, I’m black so it probably would have been a pretty awful time for me.
Just to have that kind of kind of passion and camaraderie in just so many powerful movements to happen in a 10-year span with those major assassinations and major social movements and the Vietnam War, it just seemed to be a very interesting time period. If I ever became a true history buff, it would be something that I would look into. I’m sure there are some responders who lived through the 60s, so feel free to respond on your 60s experience if you wish. Give me some insight.
