yeah. i don't want to talk about it.


Ok. Ok. No one needs to give me crap for KU's loss to Texas yesterday. Texas really wanted that win. It was like watching a Big 12 Championship game. Which made it very exciting. I, and apparently everyone else (even the KU players), didn't think too much of this game going into it with Texas' recent efforts—barely eking out wins to Iowa St and Missouri—so I almost didn't even bother watching it. Man. Am I glad I did. It truly was one of the best games I've ever seen. Both sides battling with everything they had from the minute their shoes hit the court.

I'm actually not that upset by the loss. I guess because it was such a well-fought game that it wasn't like either team didn't deserve the win. You know what I mean? It wasn't like we lost because of stupid mistakes or bad calls or something like that. Plus, we need some losses this close to the Big Dance. It will help us be a little more realistic about our chances of losing and maybe we won't be as cocky as we normally are going into it. Which always causes us to lose somewhere in the first couple rounds.

No cupcakes but a dance. It sounds more interesting than I thought.

Ah yes, the old "we lost but I really enjoyed watching the contest, as I am first and foremost a fan of the game" gambit.

I use that one too.
