Unbeknownst to me, there was no Night Court last night. If you came by for a nightly recap, allow me to apologize on behalf of the whole blog. But I think I'll blame it all on Parrish, even though he was stuck in an airport for like four hours, waiting for any plane to whisk him back to Memphis.
So because we lacked a Night Court, we didn't yet get the chance to share this video. Iowa State beat Oklahoma State at home last night. That is not surprising; Iowa State is better than Oklahoma State. But Hilton Coliseum, that building can shake when the team's good. And it will rattle when something big happens.
Something big happened last night. Scott Christopherson (a man who sounds like his forefathers couldn't decide on a last name, and one who undoubtedly is on his way to becoming a singer-songwriter) banked home the game-winner. One of the fans in attendance had their phone going. It is very loud, so dial down the volume on your computer before hitting play.
My buddy, Jeff Eisenberg, got on his horse and tracked down Christopherson after the win. The young man claims getting to 3-2 in the Big 12 was more near and dear to his heart than making that shot, which is a less-than-impeccable lie. Hey, it happens. I had Cincinnati players telling me winning at Pitt was bigger than winning at UConn.
Anyway, great shot by Christopherson, and I eagerly await his indie folk album upon completing his college career. Iowa State is now 13-5 and floating into the bubble conversation.
