Greenspan watch concludes

 Rick Greenspan and his son Ben leave Assembly Hall around midnight.

Rick Greenspan’s office.

A cadre of seven journalists gathered outside the door to Rick Greenspan’s office tonight, hoping to get an official comment from the man who presumably has most of the answers to sort out the varying reports spawned today as the nation awaits word on Kelvin Sampson’s fate.

Greenspan, you probably know, met with members of the Indiana basketball for about a half hour shortly after 7 p.m. tonight.

Greenspan and his top lieutenant, Tim Fitzpatrick, then worked in their offices until about 9:40, at which time Ben Greenspan, Rick’s son and a former IU baseball player, and a woman believed to be his wife entered the office with McDonald’s bags and a pillow.

We continued to wait. Mike Sanserino of the IDS and I scoured the building. We knocked on the door of the basketball office and then the one to the locker room. No answer. Also, nobody was working out on the floor.

Shortly before midnight, Greenspan showed that he can draw up a misdirection play.

The woman we think is his wife and Fitzpatrick went out the front door, drawing one of our defenders that way. Rick and his son walked out of the back door, where we caught up to him for a moment. When asked if he would have any comment, he said, “Not right now.” He then walked out of the North entrance of of Assembly Hall and into his wife’s car, which she had pulled around from the West entrance.

But the real question is, “How did Kate end up with Aaron’s baby?

I mean, “the baby Aaron.”

Thank you for the sarcasm :) I’m happy to know that I’m not the only one that thinks this type of media coverage is r-i-d-i-c-u-l-o-u-s!
