So, what’s the point of my doing this blog? I’d like to accomplish the following:
- Connect with other dorks who might have cool, KU paraphernalia.
- Receive formal recognition from the University of Kansas as a satellite museum of Jayhawk basketball artifacts and my house declared a historical landmark.
- Eventually become so popular that KU BALLS holds a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by notable KU alumni/fans Rob Riggle, Paul Rudd and Jason Sudeikis.
- Accept donations so that I can continue to acquire and preserve KU artifacts. Items on the current wish list include a Jo Jo White jersey, a national championship trophy (from any year), the Original Rules of Basketball (at least with KU BALLS as a traveling display option – I’m not greedy), and Olivia Wilde.
My wife, Rachel is behind me 100%.
