@pelycosauria The weather was pretty Cloudy for most of those pictures but this is my little section of Indiana, USA. We’re a pretty laid back people with farm land being a major part of our scenery. The last photo is from a local car show and I just thought it was neat :P Edit: Also, see the older movie Hoosiers. Basketball is life in Indiana for most people. That, and the Indianapolis 500 race.

The Legend of Young Larry Bird

Young Larry Bird competes in a Two Point Shooting Contest in an attempt to save the family farm from foreclosure.

Kroll Show airs Tuesdays at 10:30/9:30c on Comedy Central.

I’ve been an admirer of Indiana University Hoosier basketball since 7th grade. I discovered Bobby Knight and his epic chair throwing during the game against Purdue. I read a couple books on him, watched the uncensored premiere of ESPN’s “A Season on the Brink” and kept a close eye on Texas Tech when he coached. 

But…my thoughts and admiration stayed with IU for some reason. Maybe that’s where he started and where I was comfortable as well.

Some years later, I applied to Illinois, got accepted but didn’t attend…but now, I think it’s time…to actually become a fan of Hoosier basketball.

Aside from that, Mark will also be joining me in the basketball festivities this year. We’ll see what we can make out of IU b-ball…wish us luck folks.

Who’s ready for some college basketball?
