      Time for the Athletic Department and the Administration to dust off the old stock quotes…

      Do any old-timers remember if he wore a man purse when he was at school (with an alien head insignia)?

      I think I almost got in a fight with him at one of my parties.

      Well, he was a football player, and the combination of anabolic steroids, copious amounts of alcohol and an undeserved sense of self-satisfaction can certainly lead to friction with others.

      Make me think of this…

      I am not sure but I am almost positive that Sean Smith had a run in with him.

      i actually liked coach zorbo when he taught our coaching techniques of football class for the first couple weeks. then coach nickert took over the class (for those who may not remember nickert, he’s a piece of shit), so maybe he just made zorbo look really good.

      anyone has to be an improvement from coach brooks. brooks has had a real solid track record of bringing in ever-decreasing-in-size recruit classes with ever decreasing retention rates. plus everyone hated him.

      Here’s an interesting tidbit… Since 1999 (when the Division III playoffs were expanded), the MIAA has a sparkling record of 0-8 in the NCAA playoffs – one of only two conferences that has posted a winless record. The other conference is the IBC, which is now defunct (perhaps they decided to focus on Root Beer?).

      But seriously, this is the conference that our mighty Hornets can go through every year, and consistently win 2, 1 or 0 games a year?

      If it was the same guy — well, I suppose he had a right to be pissed and want to kick my ass along with four of his friends from the team. I had stolen some plastic forks from a football suite. Yes, plastic forks.

      So here there are at my party, drinking my beer and booze and they notice their plastic forks on top of the fridge. Naturally, an ass whooping was due πŸ™‚

      Just because it’s fun to remember these things, let’s see I was surrounded in the basement by a bunch of pissed off football players and had the forks thrust at me — I volunteered that we should take it outside so that we stopped interfering with the keg line. (I was always game for a good scrap back then)

      Outside, his friends were yelling at me about how it’s “not cool to steal” and he was piping in from the side, “Let’s kick his ass!”. I was being my typical antagonistic bastard and making fun of them for whining about plastic forks, some pushing and shoving… and then some upperclassman football players I was friends with broke it up. I got nasty looks from those guys the rest of the year and was always sure to smile and wave back.

      By the way, I do not think there was a single swimmer there who “had my back”. Ahhh, good times.

      Reminds me of when Paul Blowers was tending bar at one of Miller’s parties and had a similar situation where he was surrounded by a bunch of pissed off football players. Luckily, Portenga popped up at his side, for what he thought was to back him up — Instead Portenga started going on about how “he had a chick” and needed keys for the house. Blowers kept trying to tell Port he “had a situtation here” but Portenga was completely oblivious and adamant about those keys.

      Anyways, ten years later I’m sure Zorbo has matured a bit over the time (if it was him), but it would be funny if someone mentioned those forks to him at some point. πŸ™‚

      Now that I htink about it that is pretty much how I remember it. The whole thing it was so ridiculous. I seem to remember being one of the ones who was yelling “It’s not cool to steal,” and “kick his ass.” The reason I am remembering Sean involved in this is because he was also antagonizing.

      Paul: “Aaron, I got a problem here. can you help me out?”
      Aaron: “Paul. I gotta chick. I need the keys to the house.”
      Paul: “Aaron, these guys are pretty angry. I could use your help.”
      Aaron: “Keysss. I need the keysss.”

      What’s weird is that this was at my house and I didn’t hear about it until some time later…like days.

      Weird.

      As many of you may know I had a brother two years ahead of me at K. What you may not know was that he started the club ice hockey team at K that played in the WMU intramural league. He also had effectively an entourage of local high school buddies (one dated a K student) from the old high school team that would often hang around campus from time to time. There was some previous encounter (before I was at K) where the one that dated the K student beat the hell out of a K football player one night so my brother always had a keep your hands off aura about him for the rest of his stay at K.

      Together, we had our own run-in with the football players. I believe it was my sophomore year. One very late night , most probably early morning, we had a rousing game of floor hockey going in the basement of Chrissy. The puck (tennis ball) must have hit one of the doors too often because an irrate football player opened said door along with several of his roommates to come quiet us down. After initially being very aggressive, once enough of our number converged with sticks in hand, particularly the 6′-4″ Tom Hessburg (freshman), they thought better of it and backed down into the room to not be heard from again. We quickly resumed our game.
