The Morning Hike, June 26, 2014

Kevin C. Cox

THERE IS NO REASON TO HIKE THIS MORNING. AMERICA IS ON!

GAME THREAD IS UP OVER HERE!

Germany is about to tread.

In actual MWC news, we did a podcast previewing Colorado State's season

Give it a listen, apparently I am surprised at my own optimism...

Which team is more likely to draft Xavier Thames?

Matthew Bain gives his own ideas.

Mr. Bain also gives a nice early preview of the North Carolina game

Here's your AMERICA playlist for today

It's an old article (from February!) but it STILL WORKS!  My personal favorite:

Oh justice will be served and the battle will rage,

this big dog will fight when you rattle its cage.

You'll be sorry that you messed with the US of A,

'Cause we'll put a boot in your ass it's the American Way!

HOW ARE YOU DRESSED FOR AMERICA? I'm going with my "Where's Waldo" jersey, blue jeans and my South Carolina camouflage hat, with my "United We Stand" scarf as an accessory.
