Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that, but have you thought about your last meal if you found yourself at the wrong end of a capital murder conviction? Knowing what’s coming next makes it difficult to sit back and enjoy the steak. Or in the case of John Wayne Gacy – the official deceased serial killer of “What Just Happened?” – Hard to enjoy a dozen fried shrimp, a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken, an order of french fries, a pound of strawberries, and Diet Coke. The Diet Coke brings me. Now are you worried about calories?
For many Missouri fans, it has been difficult to estimate a basketball season in which the Tigers qualified for the NCAA tournament for the second time in eight years. This season had to be not only good but also special because what’s next is scary. It’s not a fatal injection, but the combined scoring average of the non-senior players who have not yet entered the transfer portal was 19.6 points so … pretty scary.
The season just ended turned out to be good, but nothing special, as a kind of Taco Bell Quesalupa of a season. At first it was tempting to do whatever the hell they were doing over there, with all those puffy and crispy clams on top of each other and cheese in between, or I don’t know what. About halfway there it turned out to be the same ingredients as before. In the end, it was the cause of mild discomfort, possibly followed by complete system flushing and a period of dark rest.
I’m not entirely sure if I’m still talking about Quesalupa or Missouri basketball.
