Two Left Footes: Cornell Falls to Kentucky In Final Seconds As Egan Screws It Up (Yet Again)

Subject: Cornell v. Kentucky
Cornell was moments away from shocking the world against top-ranked Kentucky, leading by 1 with 3 seconds to go. After a miss by Kentucky guard Eric Bledsoe, 7-foot Big Red center Jeff Foote grabbed the rebound with 3.2 seconds left on the clock. Inexplicably, his 5th cousin once removed – Egan Foote – ripped the ball out of his hands and laid it up into his own goal as time expired. A stunned crowd sat in silence for 45 minutes before organizing a mass suicide into Ithaca’s famed Gorges.
Cornell did not publish media guides for the 2009-2010 season so I don’t know much about him as a basketball player, but man did Egan screw this one up royally.
PS: You guys still want to hit up the Red Lobster off Route 79 on Sunday?

Oh eegs. You have really done it again.
*UPDATE* – Apparently Egan is not on the Cornell Basketball team. Reserve forward Mark Coury was found hog tied in the locker room with his jersey missing. Senior guard Louis Dale seemed to suggest that Egan sabotaged his cousin Jeff intentionally as retribution for a 1986 incident involving the destruction of Egan’s lego creations and damages to his beloved Voltron figurine.
