View Full Version : KU Way to take the high road, k"u"

Sorry if repost, but...

Damn! k"u" does have the classiest fans!



as per the KC Star-

"Henn said KU doesn’t want to be embarrassed by making fun of opponents, diseases like anorexia or a Joe-College shirt that made fun of slavery.

Hold it … KU is playing the race card?

The shirt in question pokes fun at MU having to pick cotton in the lowly Cotton Bowl while KU got to play in the more prestigious Orange Bowl. The front of the shirt reads “Hawk Football.” The back reads, “Missouri, it’s your turn to pick cotton (Nice bowl game).”

In a perfect world, future KU T-shirts should adhere to higher standards, Henn argued, “that we don’t bash our rivals, that we don’t use profanity, that we don’t make fun of diseases.”

Asked afterward if KU wanted to stifle free speech, Marchiony responded, “Well, we believe in free speech — unless it crosses the line.”

Joe College has gone to extremes to inform their clientele that they have no relationship with the university and that their shirts are meant as parody.

Meanwhile, those late to the game try to find the hook. Might want to check your lip, Mizzou 8451...

Yeah, it's a different world. I walked into a bar and grill when I was apartment searching and everyone was glued to local news coverage of a Callahan press conference that wasn't all that important (end of Sept/beg of Oct). When they hired what's his face from LSU they had something scrolling at the bottom of the TV for the entire... freakin... Chiefs game.

But, I work for a company that's so diverse, it's actually hard to find people that want to talk college football or basketball. I actually hear more soccer talk than Cornhusker talk..... Not sure if that's good or bad. :hmmm:

That's the perfect example I was looking for... I know people who play poker now that didn't a few years ago, but I don't know one person who watches it.

Soccer is boring to me, but I'd at least qualify it as a sport. The thing I don't understand is why you play 100 minutes so you can have a goal-kicking contest at the end. One hundred percent of the games I've ever watched have ended in penalty kicks.

Golf, Horse Racing, and WSoP are the three that annoy me.... Golf really annoys me because it's boring as hell and not a sport, but it's also popular so it drives the coverage up to intolerable levels. Sorry, but Tiger Woods isn't an athlete. He hits a ball with a stick and then walks after it. Athletes play golf in the offseason so they can relax outside.

That's why I can't watch the NBA. The first 40-45 minutes of an NBA game somewhat resembles basketball, but especially in the last few minutes it's about everything except basketball..... drawing fouls, shooting free throws, flopping, calling timeouts. :Lin:

It's annoying when CBB turns into that, and it's why I hate guys like Tyler Hansbrough who try to turn games into a free throw shooting and flopping contests, but it doesn't happen anywhere close to 90% of the time, IMO. Even if it did happen that often, at least the first 37 minutes were worth watching.

I was playing cards with my neighbor and some of his yuppie friends; after an hour and a half of Texas Hold'em I suggested we try dealer's choice - perhaps some 7 card stud, or draw, or low hole wild, f#ck, ANYTHING DIFFERENT, at least for a few hands. They looked at me like I'd just shit in the middle of the table.

:shake:probably didn't know how....

I view soccer and basketball about the same, actually. One man's wondersport is another's force-fed hype, I guess.

I'm calling bullshit on this one. If you were a fan of a team that had won half of the conference titles they'd ever competed for, you'd be a basketball fan, too.

I'd be happy about it, but I still wouldn't really care.

I did NOT watch basketball as a kid. EVER. At any level. Never liked it; never played it. Really.

I lived in CHICAGO during the 90s. Michael Jordan and six championships couldn't give me anything more than a lukewarm interest in the sport (I did go to a couple of games, though, because nobody turned down Bulls tickets back then). Seriously. I just don't care for it.
