One Shining Moment

ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK!!!!! K!!!!!! U!!!!!!!!

It makes me cry every year. The first time I really remember loving it was in '88 when KU won. I remember watching the game and Kansas winning and Danny Manning and everyone jumping on each other at the end of the game and that song playing. I think that I have seen it almost every year since then. It makes me wish that I watched more college basketball during the regular season. I love seeing the excitement, the love of basketball. Every year it makes me laugh and cry usually at the same time. Now I have it Tivo-ed so I can watch it again anytime that I want.
Last night I feel asleep at halftime, that's what happens when the tip-off is at almost 9:30 pm on a Monday night. I am sad that I missed such an awesome game when it was actually happening, I have hit the highlights on the Tivo recording this evening. I plan on watching it all the way through eventually. It just won't be the same waving the wheat a week after the game is already over (yes, I "wave the wheat" even when I watch them on television, even if I am laying in bed in my pj's with David snoring next to me; after every touchdown and at the end of any wins that I actually get to watch, which really aren't that many when we live in New England).
ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK!!!!! K!!!!!! U!!!!!!!!
