quick, turn on the TV

ABC News showed some love to George Mason University yesterday. A report on Good Morning America started with a live shot of happy, screaming mob. The pre-taped package that accompanied it can be viewed online. ABC isn't done yet. They're bringing the cameras back to campus early this morning:

Subject: Good Morning America to Broadcast from Ike's on Saturday Morning


Please join us for breakfast this Saturday at Ike's as we welcome ABC's Good Morning America to George Mason University.

Members of the Good Morning America Saturday team will begin broadcasting live from IKE's at 7:00 a.m. EST. GMA wants to share Mason's Final Four victory with the nation and they are particularly interested in knowing what this has meant for you, the students. The Good Morning America broadcast ends at 9:00 am.

A special FINAL FOUR breakfast will be served up at Ike's throughout the morning with normal meal plan programs in effect.

Let's give Good Morning America a warm welcome and GO PATRIOTS!
Last night on ABC World News Tonight, the person of the week was Coach Jim Larranaga. If you are still not positive that Larranaga is a great guy, the Washington Post article about the other families on his street should convince you. The Post has done an excellent job of covering the Patriots' journey to the Final Four.

Comcast SportsNet boasts that they have the most comprehensive George Mason coverage. On last night's "SportsNite" show, they had footage from Folarin Campbell's camcorder. You could call it the Followin' Folarin Campbell Cam. During the course of the expanded one-hour program, they asked who should play Jim Larranaga in a movie version of this season's Cinderella story. Their suggestions were James Cromwell, Ed Harris, William Hurt and Craig T. Nelson. Apparently Larranaga himself has said that Nelson would be a good choice.

As you watch the game, keep an eye out for the sign my friend George is bringing to Indianapolis. Look for text arranged to highlight the letters CBS on a sign that reads: Can Billy Packer Say: "Here We Go Mason, Here We Go"
