The Soul of the Patriots

BasketballOn Saturday, the final four teams left standing in the NCAA tournament will play and we'll be left with two. One of the final four teams is George Mason, an 11th seed that came out of the Colonial Athletic Association. George Mason is Cinderella on steroids. They've beaten 6th seed Michigan State, 3rd seed North Carolina, 7th seed Witchita State and 1st seed Connecticut.

There are some big time schools on that list who all recruited the best high school ballers in the country. George Mason is the underest of dogs and only has two more Goliaths to slay. It's a top knotch grade A feel good story.

If you're not rooting for the George Mason Patriots, you have no soul. The only exception to that rule are those with children playing for one of the other three teams or members of the other three teams. Scratch that, there are no exceptions. Everyone should be rooting for the Patriots this weekend.

I've been a fan of the University of Florida for the past 10-15 years and on Saturday the clock will strike midnight for George Mason.

Go Gators!!

Hahaha. You may be right.
In a weird coincidence I got some correspondence from George Mason University today regarding summer seminars. Maybe its a sign.
