Self event a success

6News staffers Andrew Baker and Mark Boyle teed off for a good cause Monday at Bill Self's golf tournament.


More than 100 golfers participated in the Bill Self Boy Scout Classic on Monday at Lawrence Country Club.

The event supports the more than 1,200 Boy Scouts of Douglas County and raises more than $13,000.

“Anytime you put your name on something that is as positive and does as much for youth that the Boy Scouts has done over time, that’s a nice honor,” said Self, Kansas University’s seventh-year basketball coach. “We’re maxed out once again with more than 100 golfers participating to raise money for a great cause.”

If "Bzdelik is a success" were an "oxymoron," Then would "Self is a success" be an oxygenius"?

That shows what the nation thinks about us. Such a great compliment!

What exactly to you think he is saying? I read nothing noteworthy. Seems to me he said he looks forward to playing and he will be focused.

Nice catch, Jayceph. Bring on everyone's best shot! Can't wait.

I still say that if the golf tournament is going to have persons from the media participating, at least two local persons from this board should be invited to participate, also. This board and its posters are a huge promotional instrument operating 24/7 365 days per year to promote and educate about and spread the enjoyment of the living myth of KU basketball. The inclusion of two posters here would broaden awareness and interest in the event, in this web site, and KU basketball among the online audience. Including to citizen journalists, or as I wrote the other day "stoggers" from this "stog," would enlarge the pie for the Boy Scouts, the World Corporation and KU basketball.

Note: a stog is my coined term for the form of this basketball page, wherein professional journalists post stories intended to trigger clicks and posts by citizen journalists. Stog is a combining of "story" and "blog." A stog is a story with blog postings. A stogger is either a professional journalist posting the story, or a citizen journalist posting commentary and/or his own stories to the thread started by the story. Unlike in hard copy journalism, where the story is the sum and substance of what is of value in the newspaper, the story in is just the blasting cap that starts the real explosion of exchange among the citizen journalists which are infact ordering and focusing and refining and expanding and deepening public opinion and enjoyment of KU basketball here. Hence, it only makes sense that two citizen journalists be invited.

Second note: again, jaybate does not live in Lawrence and does not visit Lawrence during the time of year the golf tournament is held and so has no conflict of interest in suggesting that citizen journalists, or stoggers, be included in the tournament. He just wants to see the Boy Scouts raise a lot more money, because they are a good group, and he just wants to see the World Corporation get more clicks, so it can make more ad revenues and enhance this capability of this web page, and he just wants KU basketball to garner even more attention and respect than it already has.

Rock Chalk!
