Let me paint a picture for you.

I've had a bulletin board above my desk that is all decked out in KU stuff all year.
I have talked openly about how I am a KU grad and a HUGE KU fan all year.
I wear KU shirts and hoodies often before big games.
I have framed pictures of me graduating from KU and going to KU football games on the bookshelf by my desk.
I brought the Beak 'Em visors that my dad made for the 1993 Final Four into school today, and gave them out to the fourth graders.

Even after all of that ... today one of my students came up to me and said, "Ms. McKnight, do you like KU? You know, like the school?"

He was completely serious and the response he got was me turning and walking away. I guess he doesn't pick up on things that quickly. :)

Pin It!

Who was it? Is he normally this clueless? Surely he's figured it out after the big win.

Wasn't it incredible? I got up at the down-by-nine point to go get ready for bed. When I looked up from washing my face, Mario hit the three. I felt like I had been in a time warp -- how did that happen?

Then the thunderstorms kept me up all night. The win is great, but the aftermath ... not so much ....
