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!

I attended a non-sporting art and medicine school. We don't even have a football team...so I was just excited when VCU beat Duke even though it ended up being meaningless. At least I got to hear John Feinstein make mention of my alma mater. Whew-hoo! Go Rams! (I think we're the Rams...)

I hear you, sister! Sports is like a sickness; but then, there ARE worse addictions.
