Damn you get up early. But to what you said-yep. And unfortunately it's starting to run through me like a bad flu-I'm beginning to not GAF. It used to be I'd make my schedule around Butler games and that was that. Now it's an afterthought. Last night for instance, in years past I would have shut down everything to be glued to a game like that-nope, I went to a local dive that was having $1 oysters and I had the guy throw it on the small tv near the bar. I watched, but I was more concerned on a good buzz and two dozen half shells. I don't like that feeling. I am now glancing when it's convenient and mostly doing other things as the "priority" vs my normal routine of what, 25 years now? Granted life changes and so do priorities...but last night I was the one that pushed to go out...not say "honey, get me my 12 pack, my bourbon and let me watch the game." With lowered expectations and the rinse/repeat from the last two years happening again, it's a shoulder shrug vs getting all wild and emotional about it. I still love my school and all...but the irrelevancy has trickled down into my attitude on it. Maybe some of that is age as well but, either way I hate the feeling. I very much am happy to have Thad back. But right now it's just not good basketball. With that comes lowered expectations...and that brings a different attitude as a fan/alum.
