That was such a great story. Bachelorette party on Lake Travis sees tweet from Boris that he's there too, starts calling his name...
And then he signed a $22 million contract extension on a yacht. Ladies and gentlemen, Boris Diaw!!!
Previously suspended S Josh Turner is in uniform and cleared to play, but not sure he'll be much of a factor. Not many first-team reps.
You guys swore to me last Sunday that UCLA -7.5 was easy money and the line would swell to double digits. It's still -8 now.
That's a hell of a calendar year for Boris: European champion, NBA champion, bronze at the World Cup sans Parker and Noah.
If games were decided by uniforms, Navy would win every game.
Great picture of Diaw celebrating with some fans after 3rd place victory, one of which I believe is his mother. http://t.co/fYO4sXrDdQ
Jaxon Shipley, who suffered a head injury last week, is warming up with Texas' other receivers.
Where I am there's a bunch of empty seats and green turf and a big screen and I could post a pic but you probably know what it looks like.
Fumble at the goal line in an Iowa State game. I'm sure the officials will get it right.
France takes third at the World Cup -- without DeColo, no less. Very, very impressive.
My life is not complete without Boris Diaw. I'm starting a petition for more Boris Diaw.
Boris Diaw deserves an extended vacation. He's been playing basketball for almost 3 straight years in a row: http://t.co/5EtVqdA7pj
So I hear Mack talked about Texas this morning. That's nice.
Félicitations à la Team France. Une belle médaille de bronze... Bravo les gars !!!
Now that he's done playing basketball for Les Bleus, Diaw will have 13 days to rest before training camp starts with the Spurs.

Obligatory bad joke about Boris not being that fired up since his last trip to the buffet.
Boris Diaw rallying the troops after the game, getting them ready for tmw's third-place game with Lithuania.
Serbia edges France 90-85. Boris Diaw finishes with 13 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists.
Batum has 35 after 37 minutes after miracle 3.
Serbia will play US for the gold, France will play Lithuania for third.
France misses, and that's most likely going to be it.
1-2, Serbia up 2, 16.7 left. Insta foul.
Diaw skies for rebound...and yes, he legitimately skied. France shooting FTs, 17.7 secs left.
Boris up to 13 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, while Batum has 32. Three-point game after French FTs...
Oof, Krstic jump hook puts Serbia up 5, 44.5 left.
And now Boris for 3. Deficit down to 4.
Batum doing a pretty good Kobe Bryant impersonation with 30, but it might not be enough. France trails by 6, 2:24 left.
And now it's 4...wow.
Serbia's lead cut from 18 to 6 with 6 mins left after Batum's 3...getting interesting.
Beating a child with a switch...is this the 1800s?
This song is
France down 14 to Serbia at the break. Not looking good for Diaw (7/6/1) and Les Bleus.
Diaw has 7 points and 4 rebounds, but France still getting drilled by Serbia late in the first half, 41-25.
Passing that along just so you realize that just because a guy from your frat made the team, it doesn't mean he's trading reps with Swoopes.
Texas had walk-on tryouts this month, like it does every September. Added a couple of players, like it does every year. Pretty routine.

Spurs training camp starts in two weeks. And so does my training camp. I need to work on my tweet game before the regular season.
So, UTSA beat Houston by 12 points more than BYU did. And BYU beat Texas by 34. Does that make the Runners 46-point faves over the Horns?
Back to square one
Next month there will be kind of Spurs basketball. I'm kind of looking forward to it.
Spurs will be overseas from Oct. 2 through Oct. 11 before returning home to complete the preseason.
