Heard On The Van This Morning

“Did you hear about that guy who was going to play basketball for U of L on a scholarship?”

“Yeah, they checked his heart out and found something congenitally wrong with it and they’re not allowing him to play.” They said he would probably die on the court if he did. They’re allowing him to keep his scholarship though.”

“I think I read where he had Marfan syndrome.”

“What syndrome?”

“Marfan syndrome, they say that Abraham Lincoln may have had it.”

“Good thing Lincoln didn’t play basketball.”


  1. well that sent me off on a linky journey to find out what the heck Marfan Syndrome is - the things you find out about on the blog!

  2. Do ya see Lincoln as a small center and could he post up on a fast break?
