So sorry to hear the news of your loss, Pru. Sounds like he had a good long life and you were able to enjoy him late into his life.
So.....this is......really unreal.

I've been MIA for a few days because my younger brother passed away in his sleep suddenly Thursday morning. No health issues that we know of. He is a professional caddy at Bandon Dunes for 15+ years (Juggy...if any of you have been out there) and walks countless miles per day when working. An amazing golf nerd that missed qualifying for the US Open and the US Senior Open by only a couple of strokes both this year.

He is a die hard, big time Tennessee fan. He was so happy....geeked that both our programs were ranked and headed for a big year this year. Big basketball fan.

I log back in to read about football (RW to PU)....and this pops up.

And I can't stop smiling. I needed this badly. It is amazing that something so minor as a basketball series between two schools can have such a profound impact out of literally nowhere. Just days removed from maybe the most tragic day in my life.

It goes without saying that....we...will be at both games. :illinois:
I just saw this on your brother watching the Players on golf channel. Sorry for your loss.

Came to say, I live in Knoxville and a huge TN fan. Feel free to reach out if you need some planning tips for that trip.
