Latest greatest thing ever: Taylor University basketball "Silent Night Game"

    Saw this on Eamon Brennan's ESPN blog, and thought I'd share. It's a clip Taylor University (Ind.) athletics did from its men's basketball team's latest "Silent Night" game. What happens is, the gym is stone silent... until Taylor scores its 10th point, at which point the whole place goes ape-shit bonkers.

    Then, in the waning minutes of the game, everyone in the gym locks arms and sings "Silent Night."

    Even if you hate religion (including Christianity and basketball), it's a pretty cool small-college tradition.

    (By the way, the Ivanhoe's sponsoring the tournament in question is one of the great small-town ice cream shops in America.)

    Hate religion? One student seems to be wearing a diaper and another appeared to be mooning the court.

    You have a problem with Baby Jesus and the Star of Wonder?

    Probably the biggest crowd to attend an NAIA game.
