I figured we’d start the festivities off with an mp3 version of the Thursday Sports Happy Hour. This was a fairly prototypical Happy Hour from the 1999-2000 school year. John, sitting in the left chair, leaving after 30 minutes to go do something with his band people. Brenda and Shawn as regulars. Plus, the added bonus of some extra folk in the studio. Mike Schwartz features prominently in this one.

The big topic for this show was Purdue’s forfeiture of basketball games from 1995-96 due to the Luther Clay fiasco, and my (still correct) assertion that IU should be retroactively awarded the Big Ten title from that year. At the very least, we wouldn’t have seen media hacks using the tired talking point of “OMG Bobby Knight didn’t win a Big Ten title in his last seven years!”.
