Thanks! And the ref

I had been a long time lurker since the inception of and cycled through a few user names and very few posts. None of those stuck.

Fast forward to the 2002 hoops game at Duke. Hess was a ref that night and he stuck us with a few atrocious calls in the first half that hamstrung our depth.

I registered as Karl Hess during that stretch and made a few joke posts during the game action. And the name stuck.

I thought about changing it after he made the racist comment towards the fan at Wake but I decided not to because he was the one that made the racist comment, not me; I didn’t have any better ideas; and it’s a pain to start anew with a fresh name.

It’s a weird crossover though since the baseball program is my favorite at UVA even though college hoops is my favorite overall sport (baseball tops hoops by a barely perceptible amount and then football is slightly down the ladder but not much).
