I went to one of the camps and on the First Day, Xavier, Cole, Brady, and Mario (Little) were there. Xavier would not stop hitting threes and had an amazing dunk. On Day Two, Thomas Releford and Dominic Sutton were there. Dominic Sutton wouldn't miss a three from anywhere. Uh-oh, but wait, he's on KSU so it doesn't matter... Day Three is yet to come.

} KUAD just announced that a rock band has been hired to travel with the KU Tour. The band is called "The Grateful Self." The band specializes in a combination of Bill Self's Top 50 favorite rock and roll songs, plus extended instrumental homages to the band's heroes--The Grateful Dead. The tour director, commenting on deep background, assured that this would be a lysergic acid diethlymide free zone. Thank goodness for progress.

} KUAD also announced that the response has been so strong to this year's KU Tour, that next year's will be conducted in Tahiti and all fans with documented KU degrees will receive half-priced air faires (on Aero Algunas Veces) and hotel rates (at the Motel 6 on Tahiti). The ancient band "Kansas" of "Dust in the Wind" fame has been contacted at a Lawrence retirement home where all surviving band members now reside, and Kansas has agreed to a reunion performance, but only on Bora Bora atoll. The band will perform one new song, "Dust in the End," a hauntingly elegiac sequel to their famed "Dust in the Wind," plus "I May Wear Dentures, But I Can Still Rock Like a Stone," a raucus send up of The Rolling Stones latest "Sympathy for Intel Rockers" and Bono's "Shake, Rattle and Embed." The Bora Bora performance will require extra travel and hotel fees that have yet to be announced. Clothing will be optional. The PR firm for the band says fans should prepare for a performance with full frontal nudity, technicolor catheters, and guitar riffs in wheel chairs.

} Sources inside Dominic Sutton's head indicate that he was at the event mentioned above, because he has gotten tired of Frank Martin's menacing stares and has decided to transfer and walk on at KU. When Coach Martin was asked about this rumor, he reputedly said, "Not unless he wants to go wading in the Kaw River with concrete Nikes."

} Speaking of the Kaw River, the rumor mill has reported several citings of Xavier Henry at summer sand bar parties on the Kaw. Xavier is reputedly easy to pick out, because he is the one walking on Kansas River.

} The rumor mill also indicates that CJ Henry has reputedly had a 1978 Bertram 33' Sport Fisherman shipped into Lawrence from a Florida yacht broker and will live aboard,rather than bunk at the Jayhawker Towers. The boat, called The Floating Jayhawker Towers, will be birthed at Lake Perry. Lew Perkins, Bill Self and Danny Manning and CJ will conduct their unlimited stakes bridge games there.

Note: as always, none of the above is remotely true and taking any of it seriously would be grounds for the FEMA Continuity of Government shadow government to suspend one's constitutional rights. No wait! There is no FEMA COG shadow government; that's all conspiracy stuff...right?...right?
