Now it’s past my bed I know; and I’d really like to go. Soon will be the break of day. Sitting here in Blue Jay Way. -The Beatles
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! March Madness. It’s awesome baby! PTPers. Maalox Mashers. Slap-a-lappers. Dipsy-doo dunkeroo slam-jam-bams, baby! It’s super. It’s scintillating. It’s sensational. And it’s upon us. Yes sports fans, here comes the Madness and look at me without a team. Without a horse in this race. Blue Moon. You saw me standing alone. Without a dream in my heart. Without a love of my own. So sad. I need me a bandwagon. I’m getting on one now. I’m getting on the Creighton Blue Jays bandwagon.
Finally. Finally it has happened to me, right in front of my face, my feelin’s can’t descri-ibe it. Finally it has happened to Creighton. Blue Jays’ fans feelin’s can’t descri-ibe it. After all the hype, the Creighton Blue Jays have finally arrived.
Before the season began, Creighton made appearances in a top 25 ranking or two. Before the season began, Creighton was picked to take the Missouri Valley Conference. And why not? They own a league record winning twenty games in ten straight seasons. They own a league record appearing in eleven straight post-season tournaments. Seven of the ten players who averaged in double figures are back this year. No wonder everybody thought they were that type. No wonder everybody believed the hype.
But things didn’t go as planned. Just a month ago, the Blue Jays were sitting in the middle of the pack. Didn’t look like they were gonna win jack. No, it looked as though the 6,000-student Jesuit school would be lucky just to make a second straight NIT. A month ago is a very long time. Now they stand atop the MVC. On top of the world looking down on creation. On top of the world with ten straight wins. Only Memphis has longer current winning streak than the Blue Jays.
They are winning because of one Mr. Booker Woodfox. You may not have heard of Booker Woodfox. You will. You haven’t heard of him because he was nursing an injury. Well, he ain’t injured no more. Woofox has made almost 61 percent of his 3-point shots over the last ten games. His nation-leading 51.3-percent accuracy from Downtown Freddy Brown puts him in position to become Creighton’s first NCAA statistical champion since Paul Silas led the nation in rebounding in 1964. How about that?
Yes hoop heads, Creighton is looking to make it to the NCAA tournament for the eighth time since 1999 and I for one am on the bandwagon. Follow the bouncing ball: So wave, colors, wave! We will fight on for your glory! White and Blue! We will fight till the fight is won!
Peace out homies. Six two and Even!
