FORUM FRIDAY (03/07): If you were Frank…

This week, the challenge facing our combatants was to envision themselves as Frank Martin and what he might say to Michael Beasley at the end of the season when the Kansas State coach and his star sit down to discuss Beasley’s future.

Anything was a go, but with one caveat – no gratuitous use of the phrase “you know.” But I let it slide once in one case.

Lucy, yelled out, “Hey, where’s that ‘Mama Sayz,’ you kook!” I turned around and screamed back to her, “I don’t know how to get it started – UGHHHH!” (J-MART NOTE: Writer’s block is a … problem) She said, “YOU? You’re never at a loss for words… That’s a first!” Then ta-da! “Mama Sayz” has been saved once again… Now let’s catch up, and boy, do we have a lot to cover!
