Tonight, Lorenzo Romar's 1st place Huskies visit Tucson to play the formerly formidable Arizona Wildcats. But, really, we just wanted an excuse to revisit this picture of Arizona's Chase Budinger simultaneously channeling Larry Bird, Hugh Hefner, and the Spin Doctors' lead singer. As Deadspin's Unsilent Majority noted when he posted the pic,
Who wouldn't want to be a basketball player at the U of A (One lucky soul even got the privilege of being my neighbor for a couple of seasons)? You're always welcome at the NCAA tournament, the campus is beautiful, and the women are both plentiful and pliable.
We'll add that a friend of ours who attended the U of A regaled us with tales of a Wildcat baller pulling off several menages a [insert number larger than trois] at parties he attended.
We have no basis to speculate on the happenings of Mr. Budinger's private life, but we do note that his NBA draft stock, once planted firmly in the lottery, has slipped steadily since his freshman year.
Indeed, you are flying, Chase. But perhaps a little too close to the sun.
Dawg fans, take notice: tonight's game begins at the rather uncustomary time of 5:30. (Broadcast, as always, is on FSN.) Adjust your schedules accordingly.
