Wow. There will be an official reaction post to yesterday's game from both me and [livejournal.com profile] kayliemalinza later, but this is the first time I've been able to post about it. We're here in Detroit, we had really awesome seats, and my picture was in my hometown paper twice. The only downside was when those silly security people at Ford Field tried to make us sit down during our school fight song. We resolved the issue eventually, but man.

Well, tomorrow at 5:05 we play Kansas. Go 'Cats!

ETA: The double reaction-post is here: http://kayliemalinza.livejournal.com/124426.html

I look forward to singing that in Detroit now, where Davidson takes on Wisconsin in the Sweet Sixteen on Friday night (7:10)! OMGWTF, this is why I go to a fucking rich school: the Trustees have decided to pay to fly as many students as want to go up to Detroit for the weekend, as well as pay for our hotel and the tickets. This is like, 500 USD! So, yes, [livejournal.com profile] kayliemalinza and I are totally going, and Godlet was already going, because he's in the band. Give me a wave if anyone on the flist hails from the Detroit area!

Ok, NOW I can post about the awesomeness of yesterday. Tenth-seeded Davidson played seventh-seeded Gonzaga yesterday in the first round of the men's NCAA tourney, and, for the first time in 39 years, WE WON. Yes, you read that correctly. Davidson won. 82-76. After trailing just about the whole game, in the final five minutes or so, the team put together this amazing effort to tie the game. There were several minute lead changes and ties, then Stephen Curry, who finished with 40 points, got this pass from Andrew on an offensive board and just put it up there for as beautiful a three as you've ever seen. And silly Gonzaga couldn't keep from fouling us; Davidson as a team shoots about 72% on free throws, which is really, really good. They kept fouling Stephen, who shoots about 89%. You do the math. Anyway, I even got [livejournal.com profile] kayliemalinza to watch most of the second half with me, and she's just as excited as I am that our boys are headed to the second round tomorrow against Georgetown!

So this morning, I went hunting for the paper to continue revelling in the glory of Davidson's win. First, I checked in Belk: no papers. Then, the Union: just lots of yesterday's paper. So I walked down Main Street to the bookstore where I obtained a copy of the Observer. As I was walking back to my dorm to read the paper, I encountered a family who were visiting campus. One of their daughters was considering Davidson. So I gave an impromptu tour. Kaylie, you can be all curmudgeonly, but it was fun.

Well, once more, we almost pulled off an NCAA upset, this time over Maryland. The 'Cats played a great game, and Stephen Curry had 30 points before he fouled out. I watched in Fiji, where we had quite the crowd, though J.C. insisted on cheering for Maryland, the big idiot. Sigh.

On the plus side, I suppose that means god Michael will be back for an rpg session this weekend.
