What Happened to Randolph Childress?
While sitting alone in my apartment at 2:00 on a Friday night, eating leftover Arby's and watching "The Cure" videos on youtube, two things have popped into my head. First, Robert Smith seems really depressed. Somebody should really send him an e-card or something to cheer him up. Secondly, I am reminiscing about the unbelievable performance Wake Forest's Randolph Childress put on in the 1995 ACC championship. Check out highlights of his quarterfinals performance against Duke here. I may be guilty of fetishizing, but I would argue that Randolph's three game run in the '95 ACC tournament was among the greatest three days of basketball any human has ever played in organized competition. So, whatever happened to Randolph Childress? Apparently, he is averaging 14 points a game in the Italian league. For some reason, this greatly saddens me. Now I know how Robert Smith must have felt when he wrote "Pictures of You".
