Tom's Take on Sports

 


The "other' Indiana

     It is the best of times...and the best of times.  This is a tale of two Indianas.  The one Indiana you know-- Indiana University... Number 1 in the polls and improving.  But what about that other Indiana-- the Indiana Pacers?  The state's NBA team is quietly Number 3 in the Eastern Conference, and while the Knicks, Nets, Bulls-- and especially the Miami Heat-- get the credit, Indiana just keeps winning-- quietly.
     This is not a team with recognizable stars.  Indiana's most recognizable face-- Danny Granger-- would not be confused with LeBron James, Derrick Rose, Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, or other top-tier stars.  And that doesn't even speak to the other players on the Pacer roster.  All they do is win-- and win big, like last night over the New York Knicks.
      The other Indiana-- Indiana University-- has the recognizable stars-- like Luke Zeller, Jordan Hulls, and Victor Oladipo.   But even though everybody knows their names, they have one thing in common with that NBA Indiana team-- they both don't care who gets the credit.  They just win.  
        It is the best of times...and the best of times... to be an Indiana fan.  Love them both-- they both deserve your affection.  They do it the right way-- the Indiana way.  In both cases, it's all about the results-- not the men who make it happen.
                                                   That's my take-- I'm Tom Lee.
