Illinois!

I love this quote:
"Honest to pieces, I know practically nothing about the damn game," he said. "I pay attention to the dunk. That's the only thing I wait for."
From this story on the invention of the spring-loaded basketball rim.

How 'bout those Illini?

Confidential to the various hicks gathering in St. Louis and talking to the television cameras: There's no noise in Illinois! (Translation: the 's' ain't talked out loud.) It's a French word for whatever the Illinois Indians called themselves.
