Found November 13, 2013 on Fox Sports:
With a tip-off at 11:59 p.m., Wichita State basketball fans could be forgiven if they missed their team's second game of the season against Western Kentucky on Monday night. But for a couple of elderly diehard Shockers fans, nothing was keeping them from Charles Koch Arena -- they were going to do whatever it took to stay awake for the whole game. Well, if you're going to sport a Rockstar Energy Drink sticker on your sweater, might as well down one to keep yourself awake. Heck, we wouldn't be suprised if the poeple at Rockstar have a new ad campaign on their hands (or even planned this all along). At least it was worth losing the shut-eye: The Shockers beat the Hilltoppers 66-49 to improve to 2-0. H/t: NESN
