So the story begins two years ago (roughly) when my father (Pappa K.) purchased a shirt for $1 which we were out at a garage sale. The shirt says "1988 National Champions: Jayhawks." On the back it reads "the hawks spread their wings when the fat lady sings." It is a phenomenal shirt. It is the shirt that the national title team was given directly after their victory in 1988.
I wore this shirt yesterday for the first time in a few months, and after my classes Brittnee and I decided to eat lunch at the Yacht Club. In walks Bill Self, and Danny Manning. I freak out, but keep my composure as I eat my cheeseburger and french fries. As we end our meal and pay for our food Brit and I get up to leave. We happen to walk right in front of the table that sits Bill and Danny. As we are walking by, Bill points to me and says "Hey, Danny, you recognize that shirt, don't ya?" Naturally, I freak out and pause in my place. Danny Manning then responds, "Yup, I think I still have it too." I laugh. I then say, "Ya, one of my best shirts" and continue to walk so as to not bother them while they eat. I then turn around and say "Rock Chalk" and both Bill Self, and Danny Manning look at me and say "Rock Chalk."
Best story ever. I fell in love.
