. . . And The Short Of It

It's a great day to live in Cincinnati . . . um, not by the looks of things outside this morning, but because this is Crosstown Shootout day. It's the basketball game of the year pitting the University of Cincinnati Bearcats verses the Xavier University Musketeers. If you know me at all, you know that I'm a huge UC fan, so obviously they're who I want to win tonight. It's not that I dislike Xavier; I even own various XU apparel [that I rarely wear]. But just for one game each season I want Xavier to lose.

So this morning I woke up a little early to go shoot some hoops [I hate that phrase] and I was looking for my basketball shorts. I have the authentic UC Jordan shorts from a couple years ago, BUT I COULDN'T FIND THEM. Of course the only ones I could find this morning were my Xavier shorts. So this left me with a dilemma: wear the XU shorts on the day of the Crosstown Shootout and possibly jinx the Bearcats or wear soccer shorts. I chose the former. So if by some possible means the Muskies pull it out tonight, it's my fault.

I'm so sorry Coach Huggins. I promise to do better next time.
