I believe the legendary NASCAR driver Ricky Bobby once said, "If you ain't first, you're last." How is this relevant? Well, the Specialized Master in Finance program fielded a team of Grade-A all-stars to play intramural B-league basketball every Tuesday night at 9:50pm, and the fellas are undefeated. Led by team captain Brian Perry, Big K & The Gang is already paving its path to the Finals: the internet has been blowing up with memes about how the squad is taking the Finals home in 6 games this year.
For Christmas, it was hard to decide what to get my brother. He's difficult to shop for because there is nothing he really needs and the list of things he wants is limited for me. After much debt, I decided to give him the gift of OSU basketball. I mean, who wouldn't want to see our amazing (and current #1 in the country) basketball team and since my brother goes to University of Kentucky, he has become quite the basketball fan.

Despite blogging about the recent string of basketball related injuries to the MBA class, I decided to play basketball with a bunch of classmates. Oops! I now have a black eye thanks to a classmate's elbow (accidental) while we were trying to get a rebound. Hopefully this shiner goes away in the next five days or I'll be wearing makeup to meet my corporate mentor. On the bright side, I guess this is better than spraining an ankle or tearing my Achilles tendon.
It’s official… MBA students are not meant to play basketball. Tonight I drove a classmate to the ER after he had a bad fall during a basketball game. Initially we thought he broke his ankle, but it turns out that it’s just severely sprained. Obviously an injury such as this is bound to happen; however, this incident is the 4th Fisher 2011 basketball injury since school began.
