Squirrels for the Louisville game

Postby abezontar » Fri Feb 28, 2014 3:13 pm

http://www.sbnation.com/2014/2/28/5456742/the-first-68-on-conference-title-races-and-the-best-dunk-of-the-season

Our quote of the week comes from Louisville freshman guard Terry Rozier, who completed his 15th game without a turnover on Thursday night against Temple. Not a bad statistic for a freshman point guard.

It's not a single quote, but this entire exchange with a Louisville Courier-Journal reporter about Rozier's fear of squirrels will probably be the best thing you read this week.

Jeff Greer: I read that you're scared of squirrels.

Terry Rozier: Terrified by squirrels.

JG: Like, the albino squirrel around (Louisville's) campus, or all squirrels?

TR: Any squirrel. I almost got attacked by one when I was little.

TR: They're too sneaky to me. I had a hoop in the backyard and the lady that lived next door had bird food out of (a bird feeder). All of the squirrels would be over there just to eat the bird food. I never used to go out to my backyard to go hoop when there were a lot of them back there. When it broke, she took it down and it was just like, ‘Yes, I can finally go in my backyard and hoop because no more squirrels will come around.' They're just sneaky to me.JG: Attacked?

JG: So you just don't trust them?

TR: I don't trust squirrels.

JG: Have you seen the video of Eric Berry, the safety on the (Kansas City) Chiefs? He's really afraid of horses.

TR: No.

JG: Well, the Chiefs, their mascot (Warpaint) is a horse. At the beginning of the games, they have the cheerleaders all lined up and the horse runs out. (Berry) is what, 6-feet, 210 pounds, and he hides from the horse. You need to see the video. You've got to Google that.

TR: (Sighs.) Yeah, I'd watch that.

JG: I'm imagining you like that.

TR: I don't like squirrels. I'm not a squirrel guy.
I've never liked the way they look at me. They're up to something. It's just a matter of time. Rozier's concerns are not misplaced.
The donkey's name is Kiki.

On a side note, anybody need a patent attorney?

Good, Bad...I'm the one with the gun.

Any ability for SID to influence to play National Geographic squirrel video's on the big screen during timeouts? Is that crossing the line? It would be funny though.

I'm trying to get my wife on it. Would love students to wave this behind basket for free throws.

We should also be able to attract a good number of the campus squirrels around the Louisville entrance to Moody with some properly placed nuts.

Damn, fathead could not guarantee delivery of a custom horsehead squirrel before Thursday. Anyone know a local option?
