Back to Back Basketball championships sandwiching a football championship. AND we destroyed the Buckeyes the last two times. I smell the birth of a rivalry.
What a rush!
As usual, after the game the student body charged University Avenue. As usual people climbed on to roofs (except for the roofs the police had already climbed on to to monitor the festivities. As usual we managed to do surprisingly little damage while nearly rioting in the streets. The sheer number of crazy people in the streets is just awesome, and the scene out there can’t be done justice by watching a news report of us partying out there on University. Everybody is always surprised that no group of revelers flips or burns a car or does any major vandalism (ok, I think somebody burned a couple of sofas during the football championship), we’re just damn happy to be champions (again!)
Well, as I mentioned, they kicked my beloved Bruins’ ass. But, by virtue of the their victory, I took second place in my first March Madness pool ever. I actually gave up after UCLA’s defeat, but I had some vague idea that if Florida beat Ohio, I might be in the money. So, cheers for Florida and thank God all those assholes are entering the NBA draft and UCLA will be BACK with Kevin Love next year.
If people weren’t talking about Florida, I’d say it’s because Florida was the obvious favorite going into the tournament. When the brackets were announced, someone on ESPN said “the selection committee is basically daring us not to pick Florida.”
Did you attend FSU? Because I have a very accurate stereotype of people who support FSU without having attended the school. If you did attend FSU, go do something noteworthy. And try to do it with decent human beings instead of criminals.
