...moved from Bloomington, IN - Indiana University. Man, I thought home was bananas about basketball, boy was I wrong. Here in Lexington, it is like a religion. Fanatics, people are here. Rather pitiful, really.
When growing up, as a teen (15 and 16), I was a scholarship basketball recruit to the Bob Knight Basketball Camp two years in a row, held on I.U. campus. Bob Knight held clinics every day, which was manadatory to attend. The camp was a two-week live on campus style event. Around the age 19, basketball died for me. In fact, not a fan of sports at all. Could find better things to do with all the invested time.
When people, which they always do here, ask if I like basketball (they see my build and assume so), tell them "I am the least interested person you will ever meet", boy the remarks and/or looks recieved. Folks immediately pick up on the fact that I come from elsewhere due to lacking the southern draw, which also is annoying.
Oh, well. If you haven't figured out yet, this place isn't home at all for me. Freaking basketball, horses, and strong religious ideals. Not my thing.
