Just-In'Love

How we missed this, we do not know: Siena's men's basketball team has a player named Just-In'Love Smith.

Really. Smith's a senior walk-on from East Greenbush. He told ESPN last fall that his mom named him Just-In'Love because she was "just in love with me." He told TWC sports in December that he loves his name:

Name aside, Smith is not a typical college basketball player. He's 26 and has already served four years in the military -- one of those in Iraq.

Smith has appeared in three games for the Saints this season (for six minutes) and has scored 4 points.

By the way: after having a rough time with its non-conference schedule, Siena has been ripping up the MAAC. The Saints are 8-0 in conference. They're next at against Loyola tomorrow night.

Comments

And he said: "Son, this world is rough and if a man's gonna make it, he's gotta be tough. And I knew I wouldn't be there to help ya along. So I give ya that name and I said goodbye. I knew you'd have to get tough or die. And it's the name that helped to make you strong."

Say Something!

When I want to take my dog for a dip, we go to Peebles Island state park and I just let her have a sit in the river. The booth is unmanned this summer so it's free. On the east side there are some rocky bits you can walk down to in case you're worried about her getting muddy.
