Worst. Fun Fact. Ever.

Tuesday, March 18, 2008

Saw this over at The Realests and it cracked me the hell up. The Daily News is running a Tournament preview like every other paper, but I think their capsule on San Diego tops them all....

FUN FACT: Power forward Rob Jones, a 6-5, 230-pound freshman, turned down football offers from such traditional powers as Notre Dame, Miami and Oregon to pursue a basketball career. He is the grandson of Jim Jones, the leader of the Jonestown jungle compound where more than 900 people were killed in 1978 in a mass murder/suicide.
Mass suicide is always fun and 900+ people dying just makes me giddy!

Sports Illustrated had an article on him several weeks ago.

ESPN, CBS, probably PBS and just about every channel out there has done a story on him this year. His dad was only saved because he happened to be off the compound playing basketball in a tournament somewhere.

Oh no, Kool-Aid Man! In fact, it was Flavor Aid, not Kool-Aid, contrary to popular belief.

Seriously, though, yeah, the SI piece about it all was damn good.
