So this morning we got to work around 8am to get ready for a practice at the stadium later in the morning. Since for some reason we have really bad luck with water, we sent one of our undergraduate students to the stadium to make sure the water was turned on so that we could fill up our coolers when we got there. Well, apparently, as he was crouched on the field checking the spigot a man came running on to the field. My student just goes back to what he was doing, totally unaware that this man was sprinting on to the field because of his very presence. After having to explain to a very disgruntled grounds crew member why he was on the field at 8:30 in the morning, they then had to explain to the policemen who had responded that it was no big deal, he was supposed to be there.
Apparently, there is a laser security system that sets off an alarm that is totally silent on the field (as to not scare off the unsuspecting athletic training student, I guess) but that goes absolutely beserk in the police station that is just down the road. Oops. I guess the moral of the story is sometimes those weird rumors about bank-heist-movie style laser security systems can actually be true.
And now...for the first ever athlete quote of the day...it's more of a short conversation but here goes, just so you know...this was a serious question:
(this is while an athlete was watching TV in the athletic training room while getting treatment)
Athlete: Why isn't basketball on TV right now?
Me: I have no idea.
Athlete: Well can you make it come on, I mean, I don't want to watch them talk.
Me: No, I cannot actually control what is being played on the channel.
Yep, that's about it. Tomorrow, laundry day!
