How Bout Them Rams

Excuse a personal aside.
Who woulda thunk it. Richmond’s– Virginia Commonwealth University Rams defeated Number 1 seed Kansas to advance to the Final Four. As I live adjacent to that campus in an area of Richmond called the Fan, this is all quite exciting. Since we aren’t big enough to support professional sports makes it even more significant. We’ll party hardy tonight.

    Congrats VCU!!! Great story, bad for the bracket! 🙂

  2. Dear Randy, have you recovered from your other night of celebration yet? Better prep for next weekend…

  3. Randy in Richmond says:

    Yes and no. Tonight’s another story.

    Truly amazing. I can’t believe that team almost didnt make the tourney. Theyre tough. Richmond U. didn’t too bad either.

  5. I follow the whole bracket selection process very closely and I was completely shocked that VCU made the tournament. I would have put the odds of them making the field at about 2%. If they win 2 more games, they will be the most unlikely national champion in American sports history.

  6. My husband and kids are bummed because their brackets all blew up due to the VCU win. I tried to tell them that is what makes March Madness so grand! Anything can happen and having the hunger and focus to win trumps everything else. Great job VCU 🙂
