I think we need a dance-off. You vs. D-Tae. Let’s make it happen.
Challenge 2: KU Hoops Memories
big 12 championship when KU came back to beat KD and Texas I went to the restroom when it wasn’t looking good, KU went on a huge run and I was forced by family to stay in the bathroom the last 10 min of the game (no phone) didn’t see, heard screams, but we won! Well worth it

Not all heroes wear capes.
This year in Hawaii when we were surprised by the KU BBall team snorkeling up behind us on the beach we were playing on! Such nice group of young guys repping KU! Oh yeah and then we won the Invitational 🙌 pic.twitter.com/DM9S4FYaHR

Not a bad way to spend a vacation!
In the 90s we had a 62 game winning streak in AFH. I went to every single one of those games. The game I missed was the Iowa game. I really felt like it was my fault.

We forgive you, Brian … for the most part 😉
