Wednesday Musical: Favorite Things

New, 1 comment
NCAA Basketball: Xavier at Auburn Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

It’s a miserable fall day in Auburn with news of coverups and interviews with football coaches and buyouts being negotiated. AuburnTwitter is alight with arguing over 4.5 losses a year or consistency or yellow fellows. Son of Crow leads a plucky group of Auburn Fans called “College and Mag readers” into a beautiful meadow overlooking the Loveliest Village on the plains.

Readers (talking over one another): Crow, this is a terrible day for Auburn!

We look horrible nationally!

I hate everything!

FIRE EVERYONE!

Crow: Shh shh, quiet down. Have a seat now, children.

Reader: Children?

Crow: It looks pretty grim out there doesn’t it?

Reader: It’s horrible! How can you be so happy when everything is so unhappy?!

Crow (laughing to himself): I’ll let you in on my secret, if you’d like.

Reader: PLEASE!

Big rebounds by Wiley and Chuma Okeke

When Harper shoots from the logo and says “they can’t guard me”

Brown shooting threes and how the net sings

These are a few of my favorite things

Drives to the basket and wide open shooters

Pick and roll plays and Bruce the Recruiter

The way Malik flies as if he has wings

These are a few of my favorite things

The team in Orange unis and fans with blue shakers

Having a team that’s as good as the Lakers

Meaningful games played late into Spring

These are a few of my favorite things

When boosters fight

When football stinks

When I’m feeling sad

I simply remember my favorite things

And then I don’t feel so bad.

Reader: So you just think about basketball instead?

Crow: Yeah, that’s basically it
