Enjoy While You Can...


So according to Ken Bone yesterday on a Seattle radio show, Casto is 50/50 on his return next year (http://www.spokesman.com/blogs/sportslink/2011/mar/18/friday-wsu/).  It is a very real possibility that the hoops team could be without both Casto and Thompson, cornerstones to the team's chances at not only playing for another post season, but losing both would severely curtail the team's chances of being competitive next year (that's my opinion of course). 

So I'm sitting here sulking.  I have to try and put myself in their shoes.  I worked my butt off to get out of school as quickly as I could for my own reasons.  It wasn't until after I left that I realized just how good college life was.  Both of these kids (and I stress the word 'kids') have their reasons for wanting/needing to seek playing basketball professionally.  As a fan, I don't want to think about each individual's situation, I simply want to watch winning basketball, something we as Cougar fans have recently been able to enjoy.  But as an adult (I hate typing that), I do realize these kids have goals and aspirations that go beyond what the guy 200 miles away watching on tv wants.

Don't get me wrong, I REALLY hope both guys return to finish this thing off.  I get caught up all the time thinking about the 'what if' scenarios.  I just have to remember these are kids, and a kid's decision shouldn't weigh on me as much as I let it in these situations.  And who really knows anyway?  We can only wait.  In the meantime, let's enjoy their run in the NIT while we still can.  And from the fan in me, please stay one more year Casto and Thompson.  You can never get that back.
