Alright, I'm back from vacation and getting caught up on things, looking to get the GotD writeup posted later this afternoon. Before that, big thanks to tim for covering the daily writeup for me while I was at sea, very nice job by him. Also, a quick story from my trip.
Final day of the cruise and we dock at Cape Canaveral at 6am. After debarking and going through customs, my wife and I are walking through the parking lot to catch our airport shuttle. I'm pulling my suitcase and wearing my bright yellow Wooster "Fear the Scots" t-shirt. A guy quickly walks into our path from the side, comes up to me, and excitedly says: "Hey, sorry to interrupt you but I saw your shirt and had to come over. I went to Wooster, class of '86!" He goes to shake my hand and happily waits for me to say what years I went to Wooster. It was fantastic. I smiled and explained that I hadn't gone there but I play an online college basketball game and I've coached Wooster for about 15 seasons, winning a national title along the way.
I was afraid he'd be bummed by me not going to the school, but he actually seemed genuinely amused by the story behind my shirt. I told him that a good friend of mine "coached" Wittenberg and the guy responded with a comment about them being big rivals. It was great. He was a very nice guy and it was a very funny conversation. Pretend basketball provides extra entertainment once again.
