Early this evening I went to see something that had not happened in just over a hundred years. Crosstown potential rivals Transylvania University, of which I am an alum, met the steeped in tradition University of Kentucky on the basketball court. Obviously I went to support Transy, but still I have always enjoyed Wildcat basketball. And clearly, as one might expect in this match-up, I fully expected Transy to be short on the size front, outgunned speed and ability, and just generally at a much lower level of competition – hence the nature of the exhibition game.
Got to thinking about things the other day and gave a few thoughts back to the computer day prior to the big kickoff of the internet revolution in the mid 1990’s. Not sure how many of you were around doing computer things in what the version of online prior to the boom, but it was largely systems called Bulletin Board Systems. It was with fond memories I skipped down that lane from that time period in the late 80’s on into the early 90’s. I still count among some of best friends those that were made in that time period and though we have perhaps not kept up with each other as much as we should have, we still occasionally correspond in some way.
