Hard to give up 'war chant' beat

Hard to give up 'war chant' beat

While watching the Illini-Western Kentucky game on Sept. 9 (great game) a third-down situation came up and I caught myself thumping on the arm of my chair. THUMP, thump, thump, thump, THUMP. ...

Of course I stopped as soon as I realized I was being a racist. I would like to personally apologize to University of Illinois Emeritus Professor Stephen Kaufman and anyone else offended by the Captain Kangaroo beat.

I am trying to be a better person, but it's just so darned difficult being enlightened these days.
