On how much I love being a Jayhawk…

Note: This post may be a bit out of place, but I was born and raised a Jayhawk and in less than two months I will graduate a Jayhawk. It’s such a big part of my life and I love sharing it with you. 

My beloved Jayhawks (see photo above: me & my mom circa 1991. I loved the Jayhawks even way back when) are headed to the NCAA Final Four for the 14th year.  I love the game of basketball, I love the history, I love the tradition. But most of all, I love being apart of the Jayhawk Family.

I’d love to share some links that may explain what it means to be a Jayhawk a little be more:

My friends Sarah wrote this great post on “How it feels to be a Jayhawk.”
My friend Jayson wrote a brilliant essay/article on the “The Rules of the Game: Bill Self, Kansas, and basketball history
An “ode” I wrote to our 2008 National Championship back in 2009
Our Alma Mater & Rock Chalk Chant The rock chalk chant has a rich history which you can read more about here.
Former KU, UNC, UCLA, and NBA coach and Hall of Famer Larry Brown about our arena, Allen Fieldhouse:

“I tell everybody there’s not a place around—I know Chapel Hill, Pauley Pavilion, Cameron, you name it. They are pretty special, but there’s nothing like this. All the guys who scout, I always tell them, ‘You’ll never have an experience like Allen Fieldhouse.’ This is how a college fieldhouse is supposed to be.”

Rock Chalk, friends.
