I've gone over this story many of times on here before, so will refrain from posting the specifics for the 500th time, but the most elated I have EVER been--whether it be for "The Shot" when I was just a kid, Capel's miracle, the national championships, Duhon's coast to coast blue jersey reverse shot, etc--was after Jason hit that three pointer against Indiana. I felt like I was floating on a cloud of speed (not that I know what that is). The elation was outstanding, better than any feeling I have ever had. No question. And what made it a MILLION times better was the fact that I had been in a bar area surrounded by a sea of red, Hooiser fans.
I talked so much **** after that shot went down. Larry Johnson, b****es, Larry f***** Johnson! I was in Heaven. Then came the miss and the no call. (I should note, however, that my language after the shot was warranted, as I was being heckled beyond belief that night, especially when the leprechaun hit that two foot, float shot to put IU on top, his first basket of the game. Damn him.)
I went from happiest moment in my entire life to hell, in a matter of seconds. I'll never forget that initial feeling, though. We were on our way to back to back national titles.
