jaybate's Gallery of College Basketball Paintography
Copy and paste the link:
The photo by Mike Yoder of Jordan, Self, Tyshawn, and Conner is one of my all-time favorites of KU basketball for many, many complicated reasons that took me quite awhile to sort. Mike's picture is perfect. My picture as usual is merely one response it triggered. Graduation requires lots of hard work, some intelligence, and the imagination to foresee oneself as a graduate. It also takes someone with will and encouragement supporting you, and occasionally challenging you to accomplish what is within one's grasp, if one will only try, work, struggle and believe. A college education is also a messy, fitful process, at times, as is all worthwhile accomplishment. Blue is the color of the imaginative intellect in my mind. Blue is what it takes, and blue is what gets splattered about, as we struggle for to accomplish. Self and his players are for me a bit like an art teacher and his art students. They get splattered with paint as they work and achieve. But it is a glorious messiness they leave in the wake of their accomplishment--one that enriches each of us a bit, if we let it.
It is a great picture that I hope is sent to Calapari.
