After last night's disappointment, it would be easy to go all "WE SUCK" and stuff. But nah. Not today. Instead I am going to just appreciate the effort for these guys keeping it going when the season was unraveling after the OSU loss. Instead of folding the tent, they came out swinging and gave us a reason to care over the last few weeks. No medals for 7th, sure, but it sure could have gone the other way in a hurry. So for that, I am grateful these guys gave what they had instead of quitting when so many others would have easily laid down.
And thanks to the seniors who helped build this thing. The showed up in Pullman with nothing but hope that things will get better and they could be part of something special in building a program. After 3 straight years of postseason play, I couldn't be more appreciative of what they gave to the Bennett's and most of all, to the fans. We officially have a hoops program now, and without their efforts, we wouldn't be where we are today.
We'll leave the 08-09 season wrap-up to BH for the grade-A analysis. But I will say that at least to me, we are who we thought we were. Basically a near 500 team, capable of beating - or losing to - pretty much anyone.
But today....well....it's officially WEIRD with A-Rod, isn't it? I mean a lot of people have played kissy-face with the mirror.....right? No? Well, anyway, the pic sure shows that A-Rod has finally found his biggest fan. He has been staring a back at him his entire life.
The rest of the pics, including some very, uh, "suggestive" photos, can be found here.
Enjoy your humpday, and GO COUGS!
