Wait, did you really think the K30 braintrust would let 2016 pass without a self-indulgent listicle to highlight how witty and irreverent and SUPER CLEVER we are? Y’all got a lot to learn.
This dumb website launched in August, and since then we have written countless bon mots for you, our lucky readers. Let’s re-live the year in Aztec sports with a few of our most poignant/offensive lines!
IMPORTANT PROGRAMMING NOTE: Since we at Kabeer Thirty have families and friends and pets (it’s true I swear!) there will be no posts in this space from now through the Christmas Holiday.
Unfortunately that means no coverage of men’s hoops’ three games in the Diamondhead Classic – a critical stretch that will determine if the Aztecs have no hope for an NCAA at-large bid, or if they really, really have no hope for an NCAA at-large bid. It should be interesting to see which it will be.
If you must know the outcomes of these contests, I recommend calling the Mighty 1090 every 10 minutes until someone picks up. Just keep at it, someone eventually will. Then demand to talk to your Uncle Teddy. Writing letters to Mark Zeigler is another option, though that may take longer.
Sorry, I just got home from Vegas three days ago and am still adjusting to normal life, where drinking while crossing the street is frowned upon and $25 is a measurable amount of money and basic human dignity exists.
But forget about the debauchery and the [NUMBER REDACTED] dollars I lost at video roulette. The Aztecs won a game! On national TV! Against a really good team! And set some insane records! What even is life as an Aztec fan right now?
I sat on the couch at lemonverbena‘s pad for about an hour, re-watching highlights and trying to convince myself that what we’d watched in real time wasn’t some sort of mirage conjured by the windswept Nevada desert. As I drove home, past the crowds of Santa-hat wearing revelers packing trendy North Park watering holes, I still couldn’t shake the feeling of disbelief.
San Diego State had a moment to shine in the national spotlight today. It responded by shrugging off an early gut punch to blast one of the most hyped college football teams of 2016 into the stratosphere.
Oh, and the best Aztec football player in a generation broke a hallowed record and got drooled over on national network television. That happened too.
