A memory from WSU


Maybe I am getting old enough to retire. After all, something happened yesterday afternoon that, as soon as it was done, I said to myself, "hey, you've got to blog about that." Then it disappeared, only to reappear in my head this afternoon when I walked past the same spot in the Bohler Gym hall. And I said to myself, "hey dumb&%#, you forgot to blog about that." So now I am. Read on.


• What did I want to blog about? Crud, I can't reme ... oh, ya. Ran into Klay Thompson in the hall yesterday. He was wearing a "Truman Basketball" T-shirt (and a shout out to the first person who can figure out who gave Klay that shirt and post it in the comments), a baseball cap and carrying his basketball shows in his left hand (all that detail, ya, that I can remember). We talked about what he had been up to (his golf game is better), his basketball (he's going to play in a summer league some pros have put together) and the lockout (he's hearing the sides are getting closer). He came to town this weekend to see friends, to workout and to attend the football game. Such is the life a locked out basketball player. ... As for football, it looks as if UNLV won't have the services of two key receivers/kick returners this week, just like last week. According to this Las Vegas Sun story, sophomore Marcus Sullivan and senior Eric Johnson might not be available again this week. It looks as if Sullivan is out for sure and Johnson very well could be.


• That's all for tonight. Kim is coming down for the game, but we'll be up bright and early to put up our morning post. Until then ...
