WE WERE MERELY FRESHMEN

Larry Sanders averaged 4.9 points and 5.2 rebounds as a freshman in 2007-08

They say youth is wasted on the young. I just think those of us in the post-30 crowd hate that The Jersey Shore has taken over MTV. When I was a college freshman, I could run a sub-5:00 mile, sleep three hours a night and had great hair (true story). Of course, I didn’t know what I was doing half the time, and I didn’t care.  The experience, one painful lesson at a time, was all worth it. It made me better personally and professionally (at least, that’s what I’m going with).

There are six freshmen on this year’s VCU Men’s Basketball team. Statistically speaking, the Rams are the 10th-youngest team in the country. They’re all great basketball players. They wouldn’t be here otherwise. But there are going to be mistakes, plenty of youthful mistakes. Enough to cause Shaka Smart to lose some of his hair…wait…let’s move on.

The point here is that these guys are all great talents, it’s just a matter of getting the best out of them. It’s going to take time. You’ll see it some nights and others you might shake your head. It’s rare to find a guy ahead of the curve, who can come in and dominate right away. Just like I didn’t come in and just dominate the blogging game. It took years of experience to be this awesome.

DOM JONES IS STRAIGHT KILLING IT

I’m starting to worry that Dom might be a better actor than me. Dude is trying to upstage me.

I’M KIND OF A BIG DEAL

So, myself and a couple of other guys from the office are serving as extras in a Virginia Lottery commercial today. This acting thing is really starting to take off for me. I mean, first there was this:

What’s next? I figure it’s only a matter of time before I blow this one-horse town and head west. I’d tell you to say hi if we run into each other on the street, but I’ll probably pretend not to know you.

Anyway, I’m not the only one who has caught the acting bug. Former Ram Dom Jones is also involved in this thing. Dom is really stretching his acting legs and will be playing a basketball player.
