To keep TC’s high school basketball analogy going B.o.B. would be the guy whose family moved up north in the middle of the season. Rumors would float around school of dude’s exploits back home, but no one had seen it with their own eyes yet. You might see him at lunch holding his own with Blu, Corey, & Mickey but steered clear of the basketball coach at all costs. Why? Because he saw the move as a chance to start over and pursue his interests outside of the court. So on game day he’d be the one holding the crowd’s attention during timeouts and stepping on the court to put on a short show at halftime.
When finally approached by the coach about joining the team his response would be “Maybe next year.”
