Applause Needed

With just more than four minutes remaining in Sunday night's win over George Washington, freshman guard Sean Mosley was fouled and headed to the free throw line to shoot a one-and-one. But before he could take his shot, the Colonials called a 30-second timeout, which apparently did not sit well with junior guard Greivis Vasquez.

"Greivis was upset cause we took him out," Gary Williams said, tongue firmly planted in cheek. "There was a free throw and I took him out, but George Washington called a timeout, so he couldn’t get any applause when he came out of the game. He wanted me to put him back in. I told him I’d get him a record with some applause on it."

Vasquez certainly had an applause-worthy night. He recorded 17 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and two steals. I'm going to go out on a limb, though, and guess Vasquez didn't miss out on his last opportunity this season to hear a crowd cheer him as he exits the court following a sterling performance.

On a side note, what do you think Vasquez's reaction would be if Williams actually gave him a record? Would he know what to do with it? Do they even still actually make those things? The least Williams could do is make Vasquez an eight-track tape or something.

I still buy and play records, Yanda! I have a turntable that was made this century, and the last album I purchased was pressed in 2007. It's not as outdated as one might think.

Still, anachronism noted.

real Djs still spin records. The last record I bought was Wu Tang Forever about 10 years ago (man that makes me feel old). Greivas would know what's up.
