"I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service, even though I was formerly a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent aggressor Yet I was shown mercy because I acted ignorantly in unbelief; and the grace of our Lord was more than abundant, with the faith and love which are found in Christ Jesus. It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all. Yet for this reason I found mercy, so that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ might demonstrate His perfect patience as an example for those who would believe in Him for eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. "

not so fast, my friend

one of the "giant killers" from northern iowa was on the dan patrick show this morning. here's a summary of the interview from the dan patrick show blog.

Northern Iowa's Ali Farokhmanesh joined the show to talk about his huge three-pointer to sink Kansas.

Dan asked Farokhmanesh if he thought his late three against Kansas was a good idea. "If that had crossed my mind, I probably wouldn't have made it," Farokhmanesh said.

Farokhmanesh said that he was thinking that if he didn't take the shot, Northern Iowa probably would have turned the ball over. The Panthers had problems with turnovers late in the game.

Farokhmanesh said that his coach wouldn't have said anything if he had missed, because it's not his style.

Farokhmanesh said that his nicknames are "Mohammed" and "Stroke."

HOWEVER, my final two teams are still alive... syracuse and baylor. i actually picked baylor to win the national championship. crazy i know... but how many people thought kansas would be gone after this past weekend?

I started calling you Stroke back in 1994 when the Rockets were doing one of their back-to-back championship runs. Vernon Maxwell, speaking of a good shooting game in the playoffs, said, "We were just out there free-stroking."

So shortly thereafter you were out at Hancock free-stroking, draining 3s like it was nobody's business, so I called you Stroke! ;-)
