My Shining Moment

Go Gators! Ok, now that that's out of the way, I need to take a shower.

Amazing how the first time someone plays halfway decent, UCLA folds like a laundry service. But I'm not gloating. Actually, yes, yes I will gloat. Basketball has been saved from purgatory for a year. Hurrah.

But I still feel dirty having cheered strenously for Florida. Billy Donovan didn't even look happy. It's almost like he was interviewing for an NBA job...Sacto Hello? (Because that worked out well when they tried it with Pitino, and Calipari and Montgomery, and Tarkanian [SWEET PEA!])

For me, the highlight of the night was this Packerism: "Jim, I guarantee we'll see both of these coaches in the Final Four again in our lifetime." I just found that statement amusing. That's all. No other implication there. Nope, none. We'll see you next year, you braying ass.

Overall, disappointing end to a tourney that featured a great first weekend (got started right away with that BC-Pacific game), up and down second weekend, and a crap Final Four.

Crap to you, maybe. But sweet victory for Gator Nation!

And now that this nonsense is over we can get back to the important business of Spring football!

This was easily the best tournament in memory, right up to the crappy Final Four. Not one of those games was even remotely close. Booo!

Before going into college sports hiatus until August, here's something to tide you through: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/04/02/books/review/02foer.html?ex=1144382400&en=97a196cb47bcf71f&ei=5087

Sorry I am so lazy, but why do they make it so annoying to put links into comments?
