Basketball is not my favorite sport but this year I had to get excited about my alma mater, George Mason University. For the first time in school history they received an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament and then won their first-round game. Yesterday morning on ESPN, some college basketball analyst said that North Carolina had a clear path to the Final Four as long as they could "get past pesky George Mason" in the second round. Well, my pesky Patriots beat the Tarheels by 5 points and made headlines all over the country. Won't you join with me as I savor the Sweet 16 excitement?
My favorite tidbit from the articles is that Coach Jim Larranaga inspired the Patriots by telling them that their jerseys were the same color as kryptonite.

Go Mason!
As a fellow alumni, I'm positively giddy! Pull out the old Mason sweatshirt and go team! Here's another headline for you, Frank: from the Winchester Star:
By George! Patriots Win!
