A few days ago me Lloyd and Shane went to the UNC Charlotte Vs Hofstra basketball game held here on campus.

The final score was UNCC 88 – Hofstra 82, here is the part that I would normally start talking about what happened during the game but I’m not really an authority on basketball so let’s just assume I’ve just given the play by play and you’re all informed about what happened.

As usual everything we go to include at least one crazy thing, it’s almost as if they throw it in with every ticket they sell to us, I can’t say I’ve seen the words ‘Buy one ticket get a crazy person free’ or even ‘for every ticket you get a crazy person half price’ on anything, but I guess something’s are in the small print.

The craziness extravaganza consisted (for the most part at least) of crazy mascot shaped things doing what crazy people do and messing around, round one consisted of propelling soft but possibly deadly projectiles into the crowd with a customised mortar based weapon, round two was a game of mascot basketball…

Now remember that these are mascots – people dressed up in furry suits that are about as durable as an iron bar in the Arctic, this combination made something that was pretty entertaining to watch, after all everyone likes to watch other people making fools out of themselves.

With all this craziness you would think that there isn’t any more of it within a 2 state radius, but nope, there was still enough for the Brass band to be infected with the spell too, either that or the gyrations and almost performance worthy um…performance was just part of the elaborate plan to steal craziness away from Norm the Niner.

Of course, most people aren’t reading this blog post for the not so up to the minute score information, they’re reading it to get the link to the photos of the cheerleaders (and who can blame you).
