Oh Lord… No!!!!!Posted by rtmsf on September 11th, 2008
This bit of news came across our wire earlier this week, and we’re still shaking off the shivers it initially gave us.
Mike Broghammer, a 6-foot-8, 220 pound senior forward from Minnetonka (MN) Hopkins, has committed to Notre Dame during his official visit this weekend. Broghammer is the nephew through marriage of Christian Laettner. Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey had recruited Laettner when he was an assistant at Duke.
WHEW. Nephew through marriage. THANK. GOD. That means there’s no shared plasma between them, so maybe we have a fighting chance that this kid won’t be another arrogant prick of a bastard like his uncle (although the above smirk has us a little concerned). In fact, if we had to endure that bozo through fifteen years of Thanksgivings and family get-togethers, he might hate the SOB as much as the rest of us does.
And, no, we’re not letting it go.
