For his birthday, Dave informed me that I had given him tickets to a KU basketball game, and he took his favorite 5-year-old fan to his first big game.
There was a bit of suspense when Alcorn State scored the first 4 points of the game, but KU then went on a 36-point scoring streak and ended all drama. Nate learned the rules of play, witnessed many slam-dunks, and had an all-around great guy time.
They came home at 11pm with a sleepy but glowing little guy. His dad was rather glowy himself.
