A friend of mine over at LJW is putting this on. I thought there could be some funny ones from this group. And maybe some of you creative Jayhawks around here could score some free tix.

Saul is liking his chops for when Selby is declared ineligible. This is nothing compared to the meltdown "no Selby" would cause.
