    NC State student in wheelchair storms court... is it RZ's cinreds21??

    I stumbled upon this story today by a tweet from Scott Van Pelt, linking to this student's twitter account of @thrill21. I could have sworn that was the twitter account of our very own cinreds21.... Can someone confirm this?

    In fact, the kid himself shot a first-person YouTube video of him being pushed onto the floor. It starts out awesome, and ends up terrifying:

    USA Today's Nicole Auerbach tracked down the man himself. His name is Will Privette, a Zebulon, N.C. native and senior at NC State. He was pushed onto the floor by student body president Andy Walsh, and it wasn't his first time; he rushed the court when the Pack beat Duke in 2010, too, but "that time I waited for the first wave of people to go through so I wouldn't get crushed," he said. (Some have criticized Walsh for pushing Privette on the floor, but Privette has been quick to shoot such criticism down.)

    That's awesome. I wish everyone were that adventurous. People sure do miss out on a lot of fun when they're not.

    Were you on the Today Show this morning?! I had to leave for work before the story aired but I saw what may have been you and the NC State basketball player getting ready to be interviewed before I left. I was actually watching that court storming moment on Saturday afternoon (had to see Duke lose because that's just good fun...even for me who is not a big basketball fan, LOL ) but didn't see the trampling part at all. I'm so glad you're all right!

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    So can we still count on you to be "The Insider" now that your cover has been blow?

    I understand.

    On the other hand, if a mysterious new member "cinreds21v2.0" were to start relaying info, I wouldn't complain nor ask any questions.

    I love the end of that ESPN article:

    "It was the dumbest thing I've done in college but it was awesome."

    That last sentence is correct in every single way. If you don't have at least one moment of your college career that you could describe the exact same way, you're doing it wrong.
    I have quite the collection of dumb things. Makes for good stories later in life. Love it.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Same here. There's tons of things I did only a few years ago that I'd never dare do again, but I wouldn't trade them for the world - I won't have to sit around and talk about the things I wish I had done.
