My Twitter feed* informs me that former Nebraska Basketball players Aleks Maric and Ade Dagunduro will be representing their countries (Australia and Nigeria, respectively) in the 2012 Olympic Games.
*Yes kids it is true – you too can follow @FeitCanWrite to receive instant notification of new Feit Can Write posts. #ShamelessPlug
Which leads me to this scary revelation:
- Lowly Nebraska basketball (zero NCAA tournament wins) will have twice as many Olympic basketball players as legendary hoops powerhouse Kansas (Sasha Kaun*, Russia).
*The name Sasha Kaun still makes me think of Chaka Khan’s “I Feel For You”. #HowMyWeirdMindWorks #ContinuingTheTwitterHashtagTheme
As I try to digest that fact, I’m starting to think this is less suited for “Thought of the Day” and more apt for Sports Illustrated’s “Sign of the Apocalypse”.
The only thing that would be scarier is if American Football was an Olympic sport and more Kansas Jayhawks made teams than Nebraska Cornhuskers.
