Here at the University of Kentucky, I am sad to report, geoscience, any other kind of science (and the arts and humanities) all take a back seat to basketball. Lest any of us forget who or what is most powerful and popular around here, every autumn around this time a big chunk of campus is given over to people, who, apparently lacking jobs or interesting lives, camp out in an attempt to get free tickets to a PR event. The event, called “Big Blue Madness,” is the first open basketball practice for a given season. I’ve never been or watched (yes, believe it or not, it’s televised), but apparently it is a dog-and-pony show.

Suggestion for the occupants of these tents: Get a Life!
