Go to your bathroom. Strip down. And take a long and contemplative bubble bath.
Once you’re in the water, grab a piece of Bubbleicious chewing gum. Stick the gum in your mouth and start chewing. Think while you chew. You can think and chew gum at the same time, as well as take a bubble bath.
Study the shapes of the bubbles in your tub. Notice the circular structures. Close your eyes and think about that time when you were a kid and you were at your sort of friend’s house and you blew bubbles through that plastic stick thing. Life was simpler then. Now it’s harder.
It may seem soothing to be marinating in a bubble world. But life often isn’t what it seems. You are in one of life’s proverbial bubbles.
You are on the brink of disaster, ending your season, halting your basketball career without ever getting a chance to go to basketball’s biggest prom dance where all the beauties show up looking real fine.
You are a bubble team. This means whatever you’ve done so far during your college basketball season, it’s not enough yet to convince Joe Lunardi that you deserve to be selected to the field of 64 on Selection Sunday.
You haven’t shown enough to Joe, ESPN’s Bracketologist Bandit. He’s not convinced he digs you. You need to win a game or two more – and fast.
Jolt Joe or he will jilt you.
Or do it your way.
Don’t get off the bubble and you will have the rest of your life to lies in a bad bubble bath chewing on Bubbleicious fretting that you didn’t get yourself off the bubble.
You would have popped prematurely. You would have busted your bubble.
I’m talking to all of you on this list, teams with mediocre records who have more work to do to be selected as one of the chosen 64 on Selection Sunday:
East Tennessee State
Stephen F. Austin Six Million Dollar Man
Everybody associated with any of these teams better take massive action now. Go all Tony Robbins on us. Win a basketball game. Or your bubble will be popped forevermore. And while you are at it, don’t forget to put your money where your mouth is.
