    OK, million dollar question. Where is Drew? He’s not on his thread.

  2. Drew71 says:

    Just checking in. Score??

  3. Eric Bowser says:

    probably basking in the glory of Hurdle’s extension, or maybe excited to watch Russell Martin play SS for Canada, or maybe he had too many mimosas in the Florida sun.

  4. Eric Bowser says:

    60-45 Butler with a few mins left

  5. Drew71 says:

    My wife went to Butler High.

    This game should be easy.

  6. Drew71 says:

    Thank you, Eric. But you must have the score backwards

  7. LuckyNKentucky says:


  8. Eric Bowser says:

    hasn’t gotten any better in the last few minutes

    68-49 w/ 26 seconds left

  9. Eric Bowser says:

    …I’m not sure Duquesne could beat Butler Hight School

  10. LuckyNKentucky says:

    He does. It was 49-68. The Dukes were playing golf, hence the victory.

  11. Bizrow says:

    Butler, PA, is a pretty nice town

    Got my wedding ring there and the grain alcohol for the punch

  12. 21sthebest says:

    Butler still being coached by Matt Clement.

  13. 21sthebest says:

    Using the scores of the past two days, can we say Duquesne beat Pitt?

  14. 21sthebest says:

    Duquesne beat Pitt.

  15. Drew71 says:

    Duquesne beat Danica

  16. Drew71 says:

    Butler sucks.

    I got married there.

  17. JohninOshkosh says:

    One of the reasons I really enjoy this blog is its civility. People here are intelligent, insightful and downright funny. Because this is one of the few places I look at the comments, I often begin to think that all people online are like that.

    Then I look at what Dejan tweeted concerning the behavior of some against the great Sara Ganim, a person I respect immensely.

    And I am reminded of the sometimes ugly truth.

    DK: Sick stuff, huh?

    More and more, we exist in a blame-the-messenger society when people are dealt facts that they simply do not like. Disturbing on the broader level, too.

  18. Eric Bowser says:

    These truthers are sick.

    I like a good conspiracy (JFK!) but come on, Ganim is just the reporter doing her job. She’s not the one who committed those crimes against young children, or failed to report it to the police.
