Just Smiling: Baylor Goes To The Elite 8 For Second Time In Three Years


The next game is against Kentucky to get to the Final Four. Never heard of 'em. Should be a cake walk.

Edit: To you Baylor fans out there (especially the young ones), enjoy this Saturday night. At this moment and in this place, you have a Heisman Trophy winner, a men's basketball team in the Elite Eight, and a women's team that joined them this afternoon. Yeah, it's just sports. In the grand scheme of things, it means nothing. But in life there is the concept of pride. When it gets too big  and it controls you, it can be a very bad thing. But in the beginning -- the first time it really, really erupts after years of being dormant -- it makes you believe that nothing is impossible. Ask TCU after the Rose Bowl. Ask UT after Vince Young scampered to win a National Championship. It makes you want to got out, set a goal, and live.

As the Sports Illustrated story said . . . .

It's a good day.

Which one is the guy that shot his team mate a few years back?

Happy for you Barry, but man those uniforms ---- how could anyone associated with sports have chosen them for the poor team having to wear them? Aren't uniforms supposed to either 1) draw no attention to themselves or 2) to intimidate or 3) at least draw an admiring glance or two? Instead I feel the urge to highlight a textbook with a Baylor player. But then my team has already gone home, so congrats.

Ken Starr = Fail (well deserved)

Very nice message in your "edit," Barry. And you are so very right!

That white guy, who is lights-out from behind the arch, looks like he owns autographed copies of Harry Potter.

I thought I saw him finishing his algebra homework during a time-out.

Congrats to BG and all other Baylor fans. It is indeed a good time to be a Bear.

And to all prime recruits... If you don't accept an offer to come to Baylor, I'll have you prosecuted relentlessly on fabricated charges and destroy your life and the lives of your family members.

The next time I feel like I'm having a bad day, I'm going to remember this statement and realize that I could be a complete moron and write statements like the one above.

If your life is so confused that you defend Bill Clinton and mock Ken Starr, shouldn't you go ahead and kill yourself?
I would imagine life would be much better for your family. Of course, I'm assuming your family has a little common sense.
