Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

Looking at yesterday:

1) Well, phew. The dunk-watch is over. Oh, and #8 Baylor defeated winless Jacksonville State 104-45.

2) #20 Pittsburgh got all it could handle from winless St. Francis (PA), but pulled it together to getCoach Beranato her 400th win.

3) Coach Joe's sure gotten the Big 10's attention: Northwestern beat #21 DePaul for the first time in 10 years. It's also their first win over a ranked team since January 23, 2005 when the Wildcats upset then-No. 22 Penn State.

Oh, and have you caught Amy Jaeschke's blog? It's worth a look.

After home games Coach McKeown always invites a few fans to come into the locker room to be a part of the post-game speech. It's fun because we get to meet some of our fans and they get to experience what happens in our locker room. This time we had the Renihan family, some of our most loyal fans, including their parents Todd and Renae, and three daughters Mackenzie, Madison and Morgan. Usually Coach McKeown engages the younger kids by making them introduce themselves and then asking them a few questions.

Well this time after a few questions he very bravely asked a few girls, "Do you girls think I yell a lot?" They all shyly nodded their heads and responded, "Yes." He followed up with another light-hearted question, "Who do you think I yell at the most?"

One of the girls confidently responded, "AMY!"

I swear if that girl hadn't been on the other side of the locker room, I would have picked her up and given her a huge hug right then and there!
