The Game I Wanted To See

This was a game I wanted to go to. It was here in Birmingham and I thought it would be great to go to. My husband had a differing opinion, he thought that the Men would lose in this round, that the money for tickets could be enjoyed elsewhere.

He was almost right, they almost gave it away. To me it looked like they were trying to play too fast, getting in too much of a rush and losing control of the ball resulting in turn overs. But what do I know, I’m still learning this game too.

The best quote I’ve found came from Pat Summit: “Just tell those guys to rebound the basketball.” Hey Pat, any words of wisdom you can give Phil Fulmer?

Making History

First let me congratulate Bruce Pearl and the Tennessee Men’s Basketball team for a job well done! That had to been one of the most fast paced games I’ve watched in a while.

Now before you go screaming bandwagon or fair weather fan at me, please don’t. I have been just that damn busy since my last post.

I’ve got some great tie-ins with Bruce Pearl and the Big Orange Fans in Alabama. Bruce Pearl Thanks The BBOC and back in 2005 Bruce Pearl, the new (little known to Vols fans) Mens Basketball head coach came with the Big Orange Caravan to Birmingham, Alabama.

Again, good job guys!
