Last Sunday night, during Kansas City-based news station KSHB 41 Action New’s weekly sports show which runs after NBC’s Sunday Night Football, sportscaster Jack Harry referred to the University of Kansas men’s basketball team as what sounded like “Gayhawks” as opposed to “Jayhawks.” The phrase “Gayhawk” has been used as a pejorative term toward that fan base and Harry has a reputation in that market for tweaking the KU fanbase. The video is here for you to judge:
It's been a long time since this has happened. 1964? Not sure if it has happened since 1964, but today the USA Today poll of coaches ranks the Shockers # 8 and the AP poll ranks the Shockers #12...KU is ranked # 13 in both polls. The Shockers need to win against Tennesse this Saturday to be 10-0 and beat the school record. It would also be sweet as Tennesse kept them from 10 and 0 last year. Hope renaming a portion of Waterman around the arena, "Play Angry Place" will help. Thank you Antoine Carr for suggesting that mantra!
For those Fox listeners who have been the catalyst for changing the name of our airport to honor President Eisenhower, be encouraged that the next step is near. The Airport Naming Advisory Committee will have its first meeting next week. Not sure if there is a prescribed number of meetings or if we get it done, when we get it done. The committee advises the council as to their findings and then the council will vote on naming the airport for Eisnehower...not sure when, but the wheels are turning.
I have figured out a way to make a Christmas tree really spectacular in terms of brightness and beauty. Don't choose between clear or colored lights for the tree, use some of both, in close proximity to each other. The effect is really cool. However, don't use so many lights you overload your circuits and use a power strip rather than a bunch of extension cords.
Congratulations to the Shocker men's basketball team and to Coach Marshall on the great season they are having and this morning's news that they are ranked #10 in the country in the coaches poll and #11 in the AP poll. Thanks for bringing honor to Wichita! We all truly love you guys!!! Go Shocks!!!
If you watched the Shocker men take on St. Louis in St. Louis on Sunday...you know they are deserving of what could soon be a top 10 ranking. They are undefeated. Here's hoping for an undefeated season all the way to the March tournament! What do you think? Email me at email@example.com
