    email from my college roommate, who lives in D.C.:

    "As it turned out, I had to come to Chapel Hill on Monday...so I got to watch the game here. I heard that some stupid guy at the Franklin Street celebration last night tried to drink flaming Everclear, or maybe drink Everclear while jumping over a bonfire. Dude burned half of his face and ended in the ER. genius, with a capital G. "

    Too easy, huh? ops:

    Kind of had a hand in them showing up. My brother had a meet on Friday and was trying to get some one to break the 4 minute mile, as it hasn't been done outdoors in Detroit. He tried to get Willis, but could never reach him. He did get a hold of Brannen and part of the appearance fee was two tickets to the Final Four. Needless to say he brought Willis to the game on Saturday. So, my seats were in the same row.

    Too bad it was so windy and cold on Friday as the attempt failed.

    No doubt left by the Heels. A bit of an ugly second half, probably one of the more boring title games if you weren't a UNC fan.
    Co-sign, Doc.

    I fell asleep.

    I was there, and it didn't seem they (heel fans) were to excited either. The only time they made any real noise was the big dunk right before halftime and near the end of the game. Otherwise 90% of the noise came from the State fans. So, it was alot quieter then the State-UConn game.

    I also got to meet two Olympians at the games. It was very fitting for them to be at the Final Four, as the number four is the elite status for their event. Both were in the Beijing Olympics. Anyone care to guess who I meet? or do you need more clues? They live and train near Detroit but neither are Americans.

    Speaking of Madness, the local newspaper has been tracking the private jet of an Arizona booster that flew Xavier coach Sean Miller out to New Mexico for a meeting with Arizona brass, and is due back around 6:30. Slow newsday I guess.

    This is a pretty cool little tool though.

    Interesting that the flight is circling around the south end of a serious band of weather due in town around the same time of the plane. Has already spawned tornado warnings locally.

    The best part of this year's MM is absence of Billy Packer.

    Well, the Heels are on track. Tomorrow's game should be a good one. If they show up, they should win.

    He did, but he was only a freshman and was not a significant part of their success. As noted above, the tournament MVP was his teammate George Kaftan, who also played in the NBA for a while after he left Holy Cross.

    Catholic 7

    dukehjsteve is correct- USF's Homeless Dons were the seventh. Few people get that one, or realize the school's Catholic. And not a whole lot of "fans" name Loyola of Chic.

    Holy Cross is so far back, a lot of people only get four colleges correct.

    I think LaSalle's winning team(s) had Tom Gola, which would have been '50's, rather than '40's.
    Believe 54 was their year, and only 54.
