this is not a sports blog at all

But I'm just going to come out and say that VCU (my grad school) made it to the final four in the NCAA basketball tournament. Richmonders are going crazy. I couldn't be prouder of my school, my city, or my peers. I know it sounds silly, but this story has united our community more than any news organization can described. People are stoked, the energy on campus and in Richmond is incredible.


This video made me so happy. I love how moved the players are when they receive picture texts of campus after the game (1:27 if you don't want to watch the whole thing).

Saturday. Butler. RAMNATION.

that is all.

I CAN'T WAIT TO WATCH THAT GAME! Things are going to get super crazy...I have also noticed things becoming more "cohesive" if you will and the community really coming together :) It's nice!

Grrrr!

At least it's bringing the community together. But I'm still bitter!

Yay Rams! Its amazing how much more you root for a team after you've left the state -- VCU bringing pride back to the Commonwealth! (and yes, i love how giddy the guys get when they get texts from home)
