Robert Novak: Still Old, Still a Terps Fan

So the same mad CSTV hoops bloggers who tracked Gilbert down at that practice session last week recently talked to omnipresent Terps fan and angry old person Bob Novak, whose Local Poll ballot evidently keeps getting lost in the tubes somewhere. Judging by this interview, Novak--whose eyebrows have apparently been hijacked by crazed mopane worms--would like the college basketball world to know two things:

1) He doesn't really possess a funny bone, in the conventional sense.

2) After the Terps won the national championship, he went back to the hotel and drank beer with Gary Williams. Where they presumably held various angry-old-man competitions to see who could make the waitresses cry first. I think I'd actually put my money on Novak, which is saying something.

(Little known fact about mopane worms: They "are prepared for eating by squeezing out the gut contents before they are fried in their own body fat or boiled in a little water. Most of the caterpillars are dried so that they can be stored for use throughout the year. Dried caterpillars may be eaten dry as a snack or rehydrated and cooked in a little water before they are fried in oil with onion and tomato. They may be served with pap (maize meal porridge), onion and tomato gravy and atchar (chili sauce).")

(By the way, remember when Novak got in a near-fistfight while boarding a plane to a Terps game? Or when he poured out his heart to the '02 Terps, calling them "an intriguing band of brothers" who were guided by the "inspired leadership [of] Coach Williams." Wow, that sings. Dude should be a sportswriter.)

Anyhow, the CSTV bloggers also make fun of old people, and talk to an anonymous NBA scout who compares Greivis Vasquez to Shaun Livingston.
