In this time of ignorance of simple geography and the employment of the attractive simpleton as network broadcaster, I am not entirely surprised at some of the media reaction to Wichita State University’s appearance in the Final Four.
The network people seemed lost at times when it came to discussing the Shockers and their tough season, and the city they represent. I understand Wichita was misspelled on T-V graphics a time or two. The network guys were fascinated that one of our players comes from a town with two traffic lights in western Kansas. I’m surprised we didn’t see comparisons with Opie, Andy, Barnie, and Gomer.
But generally speaking, the team, the coach, and the fans showed up well in the national spotlight, in my opinion. Our people were well-behaved, well-spoken, and showed class.
It’s nice to have our city in the national spotlight for something that is positive.
Well done, Shockers … and fans.
Our thought for today is from Bill Taylor:
“Players win games, teams win championships.”
