The Auburn-affiliated team, War Ready, plays its first game in The Basketball Tournament tonight at 6 on ESPN+.

Lots of familiar faces on this team.

You can keep a wooden stake in your trunk
On the off-chance that the fairy tales ain't bunk
And Imma keep a bottle of that funk
To get motel parking lot, balcony crunk.

My doctor told me I needed to stop masturbating.  I asked him why, and he said, "because I'm trying to examine you."

That's a fun lineup.

For the unfamiliar:

It's a winner-take-all alumni tourney with a prize of $1MM.

The best part (which I think is being incorporated in some NBA leagues on a trial basis) is the Elam Ending.  At the first deadball under 4:00 in the 4th quarter, the game clock is turned off and the target score is set: the leading team's score + 8 points.  First team to that number wins.

I'll be watching.  Would love to have another Dunbar, Spencer, and Purifoy on the roster.

True.  Especially those first two.  Malik was so much fun to watch: 1000% effort all the time.  Horace was a slow-bloomer, but by the time he left he was a full grown man and really holding his end of the court down.

Always wanted to see more from Jel.  There were definitely flashes, but I had higher hopes.

He came by our tailgate a couple of times. And by "came by", I mean he walked his big ass within a few feet of us. Sweet Haysus, that is definitely a full grown man.

That does seem odd.  You've been a member here a while.  Are you unfamiliar with basketball, Auburn University or just sports in general?

I think this is only their 3-4th year playing.

Tonight was.... Disappointing.

I would suggest not sitting behind the goal.  If Cinnabun Bowers gets a breakaway for a "Layup", you could be in grave danger.
