This picture is six years old, but it documents something more historic than Duke’s title that year: notice Shane Battier is in the foreground of this picture. He is wearing his hat backwards. This is important because it is absolutely the edgiest thing he has ever done.

Billy Packer has come under fire lately from the likes of Bill Simmons for being a general curmudgeon, although this criticism is not necessarily new (he manages to alienate somebody just about every year). However, considering the strong evidence presented above that he is in fact Statler, one of the elderly Muppet curmudgeons, maybe this should not be a surprise.

Also, blah blah not enough upsets blah blah no Cinderellas and so on and so forth.
