    I would normally be stupid excited about the Stros game tonight, but for whatever reason the Coogs are occupying my thoughts and controlling my emotions today.

    I thought it appropriate to bring out this relic from the Phi Slamma Jamma days. This is a multiple autograph sheet from some of the players. Had to be in 82 or 83, I was still in high school and I was in love with PSJ.

    My brother, who was attending UH, somehow came upon a group of the players (including "Akeem" :D), and got them to sign this for me.

    Maybe somebody can help me out. There's David Rose, Reid Gettys, Akeem...….and I'm not sure who the other guy is. Can't make out his signature. But it looks like #54 (?)

    Edit: As I thought -- had to be Bryan Williams.

    Here's an interesting article about Phi Slamma Jama, that was published yesterday:

    "35 years later, UH's Phi Slama Jama teams still a hot topic"

    Reid Gettys was trying a case in a South Texas courtroom about a decade ago, when, four days into testimony, the judge threw him a curve.

    Judge Ricardo Hinojosa called for a lunch recess, then asked Gettys and opposing counsel to stay at the table.

    Hinojosa dismissed the jury, then looked straight at Gettys.

    Reid looks pretty good for being whatever age he is. :D

    Fun fact: Reid Gettys let me beat him and Alvin Franklin at 21 when I was about 15. Reid's hair never moved or if it did it never got out of place, even while running full court with the NBA guys.

    Other than they're blue-blood Kentucky, and Calipari is pretty much the crookedest coach in basketball (now that Pitino is gone), and 7 other reasons...yeah, UH needs to kick their ass tonight.
