On Champions and History

Say what you will about my Gator Mania...

Florida is the first school to hold National Championships in both college basketball and college football simultaneously. Moreover, the 2007 basketball championship is historic in its own right: this team is the first to win back-to-back championships with the same starting lineup. They dissed the NBA's riches for a shot to repeat as National Champs. They got what they wanted - and HOW!

It's a great time to be a Gator in Tallahassee. I can't WAIT for Gator Day at the Capitol!

Priceless

Ticket for the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship - $112.50

Chipping in Gas Money for the Road Trip to the Game - $47.00

Celebratory Accoutrements, including good-luck kamikaze shots - $80

Cheering from the upper deck as your alma mater, the defending National Champion Gator Boys, slash down the court, shoot the lights out and demolish "THE" Ohio State University, leaving their drunk, camouflage mini-skirt wearing, "Hang on Sloopy"-singing fans in despair for the second time in four months - PRICELESS

All Hail the Mighty Gators, the best in basketball. Again.
