As a future parent, one thing I look forward to is being able to brainwash my kids into adoring the same teams I am passionate about with a selfish hope that one day they can get a career in sports that I can mooch off.
That dream is now a reality for the parents of 5 year old Kansas Jayhawks fan and future PA announcer, Nick Sprecker who has blown away any skepticism of the thought that while cute, kids can’t really announce a game.
Nick’s mom, who said her son has been imitating the current Kansas PA announcer Eric Danielson all season stated via email to Yahoo’s The Dagger,
"Many of Nick's little inflections, including the Eeeeeelijah Johnson, are pretty close mimics. It's a great time to be a Jayhawk, and experiencing this season with our little fan has been a fabulous treat."
While the current Kansas PA announcer is taken, if the University ever needs a fill-in, Nick would certainly make for a good PR story with the added bonus of not butchering the lineup, proving it’s never too early to start brainwashing your kids into a career you want to exploit. Kansas plays Ohio State in the Final Four on Saturday night. How awesome would it be to see Nick in New Orleans?

Yes folks West Virginia IS a state, separate from Virginia with it's own identity ever since 1863.The Mountain state became the 41st state of the United States of America on June 20th 1863 and we have shoes stores and shoes are worn by West Virginians..
The man needs a History lesson: West Virginia became a state following the Wheeling Conventions, breaking away from Virginia during the American Civil War. The new state was admitted to the Union on June 20, 1863, and was a key Civil War border state. West Virginia was the only state to form by seceding from a Confederate state, and was one of only two states formed during the American Civil War (the other one being Nevada, which separated from Utah Territory).
