Basketball and Book Critics / Jayhawks Win


What can I say?  I went to KU.  Helluva Game.  That 3-pointer with 2 seconds to go.  Man, basketball doesn’t get any better.

Know a deceased sports writer/book critic who’s yelling his head off somewhere above the clouds about now.  Ted O’Leary was an All American forward under Phog Allen in the early 30s at KU.  Who knew that he would go on to become of the country’s most respected literary critics?  He loved the Jayhawks.  Was also the first big-time critic to encourage me as a writer.  You can’t pay back things like that.
