Old Testament Bad

This post title on Dr. Claude Mariottini blog caught my eye and I had to read the post. It turns out that "Old Testament bad" is a colloquialism referring to something very bad that has happened, akin to the more commonly known phrase that something is of "biblical proportions."

In this case what was Old Testament bad was that the usually highly ranked University of Kentucky Wildcats basketball team took a drubbing from the also usually highly ranked University of Kansas Jayhawks basketball team, 73-46. Kentucky Wildcats fans have been despondent after that loss. I am not. I graduated from the University of Kansas. Go Jayhawks!

I too read Dr. Marriottini's article on "Old Testament Bad" with interest. I have long admired the basketball programs at both the University of Kentucky and University of Kansas. Quite frankly I was surprised at the margin of victory in the win by KU this year. However, I will say that I am proud of Mario Chalmers, a freshman guard on the KU Jayhawks team. He is a graduate of Bartlett High School in Anchorage--and was named the last two years as the best basketball player in Alaska. We Alaskans expect a lot from him--and I wouldn't be surprised to see him play in the NBA in the future.
