Is that a sign of aging?
Whatever it is, I’m shocked at something I couldn’t remember today.
Someone had said to me that Steph Curry had played basketball at Davidson, which I knew was supposed to impress me, but all it did was cause me to go look up “Steph Curry.” (And it turns out he IS quite impressive).
Because, you know, I don’t do real-life sports. I do frequently enjoy fictional sports (I like the idea of sports more than the reality), so I can tell you all about Roy Hobbs and Bartholomew “Bump” Bailey and Willie “Mays” Hayes and (now that Bryan has me watching “Friday Night Lights”) “Smash” Williams, Tim Riggins and Matt Saracen.
So anyway, defending myself, I boasted that while I don’t know this Curry guy, I can name all the Hickory Huskers from “Hoosiers.”
But then, privately, I tried to do so, and without looking them up, all I came up with was this:
- Shooter’s son
- Jimmy Chitwood
- Buddy’s friend who said, “I ain’t no gizzard.”
Best I could do. Which is lame.
Can you flesh out the roster with full names?
You can check yourself against this…
And quick, who said this?
Hint: “Leave the ball, ______…”
…take the cannoli.
uhhhh…..The white guy?
I know for sure none of them are named Tyrone.
