"Before you know it as the years go by, you're just like other people you have seen, with all those peculiar human ailments. Just another vehicle for temper and vanity and rashness and all the rest. Who wants it? Who needs it? These things occupy the place where a man's soul should be." -- Henderson the Rain King

UW vs. USC

Tonight we went to the see the #13 UW Huskies men's basketball team take on the USC Trojans. UW easily dominated the game winning 99-69. Here's a some of the more memorable moments:
  • Tre Simmons rained in 3 pointers all night ending the game with a career high 29 points. He had a chance to get to 30 but ended up bricking two free throws before getting subbed out.
  • The Husky students were chanting 'Rodrick's better' at USC guard Lodrick Stewart. Rodrick is Lodrick's twin brother who recently transferred from USC to Kansas. The Stewart twins played high school ball at Rainier Beach here in Seattle, so the UW fans consider them to be somewhat of traitors for ditching their home town school to play elsewhere.
  • Bobby Jones had an awesome rebound in the second half. After securing the ball he forced his way down the lane and tried to throw down a monster jam only to get blocked by the rim. Doh.
  • The Husky students going wild when little used, but much loved Zane Potter entered the game
  • The Husky band mocking the USC fight song before launching into their own.
  • The Garfield High Dance Squad performed at half-time. A little kid on the sideline was trying to dance along with them much to the delight and amusement of the crowd.
