patriot party

George Mason University's Sweet 16 game tomorrow night won't be shown on WVLT-TV here in Knoxville. It's because Mason's game against Wichita State will be played at the same time as the Villanova vs. Boston College game. I guess it makes sense that the major conference teams would get more TV coverage than a couple of mid-majors. Fortunately Mike Ickowitz, who used to wear the Gunston mascot costume at GMU basketball games, now lives in K-town. He and his lovely wife Tanya have organized a viewing party at Bailey's Sports Grille. (Is it a bad sign that Bailey's parent company is headquartered in Wichita?) Speaking of his lovely wife, she sent me a link to a Washington Post article that includes a photo of a GMU student named Kevin Lamparter who is from Knoxville and therefore not a commuter student like I was back in the day.

Broadside, the GMU student newspaper, wasn't scheduled to publish an issue this week because of Spring break. It looks like they put together a special edition that you can print on the nice color printer at your job. Here are a few more news stories to get you caught up on Mason Mania before you head out to Bailey's to watch the game with us:
